Society is a continuum between collectivist and individualist cultures. Whether public services are government led or through sovereign decree, leadership in the public sector requires passion, duty and determination which this course will behold. Whereas profitability is not a consideration as in the private sector, productivity and performance certainly are. Both domains share learnings in their leadership predicaments yet differ in scope of development that this course entrusts you with.
The course also includes a site visit to an organization relevant to the course so delegates can develop an understanding of how their contemporaries function in the real-world.
The course will wrap with a summary of the key learning points, followed by an action planning exercise with a view to apply the acquired knowledge and skills immediately upon your return to work. Post-course support is also available in relation to the implementation of your action plan, up to six (6) months following course completion.
