From Manager to Leader

From Manager to Leader is for experienced managers in the public sector who seek to become leaders at the executive level.  As a participant in the program you will undertake a leadership journey to prepare for increasing responsibilities and challenges, gain insights into your leadership style, and become more strategic in your actions. You will acquire important insights and practical knowledge that can be applied immediately upon return to your workplace. This will empower you to contribute more broadly to the development and realization of organizational goals.

The program consists of a ½ day orientation followed by 5 consecutive class days and includes the use of self-assessment tools, readings, teamwork, simulations, and learning groups. The From Manager to Leader program design is based on leading practices in executive education and builds on Telfer’s successful public sector programs. Program instruction is in English, although where possible instruction materials will also be available in French.
