About the Program

Canada’s most successful public institutions are served by leaders that are inspired by a desire to build a better and more prosperous country. Telfer’s Public Sector Leaders Program (TPSLP) is designed to ignite your passion for leadership. You will benefit from:

  • A deeper awareness of your leadership style and strengths, of the future demands on Public Service leaders and the leadership needs of your organization, workforce and partners;
  • A greater sense of purpose with a committed team and stakeholders prepared to lead meaningful change; and
  • A strong understanding of being a strategic and authentic leader, who aligns your work group with your organization in pursuit of broad strategic goals.

As a participant in the program you will embark on  a leadership journey becoming self‐aware of your leadership capabilities, learning how to access important strategic insights and acquiring practical knowledge that you can apply both during and immediately after the program. The program design makes extensive use of group activities, discussions and peer learning groups so that there is ample time for you to reflect on, and adapt insights to your specific circumstances.

The program consists of a ½ day Orientation followed by three modules, each comprising two class days over a four‐month period. In between modules, participants will have individual assignments and sessions of with your peer learning group. Each participant will complete a 360 Assessment and have an individual debrief by a certified coach. NEW this year: Throughout the course of the program, you will receive two more one-on-one coaching sessions with the same coach to develop your Learning Agenda. One session will take place between each module and will be scheduled between you and your coach. The design is based on leading practices in executive education which underpin our many successful programs for public sector clients.
