This program gives local government professionals the knowledge, skills and abilities they need to be more effective managers and leaders in their organizations.
The Local Government Leadership Development Certificate program is designed for local government professionals with at least two years in a management or supervisory role who want to build on their strengths and take on more senior roles.
In the program, you'll discover problem-solving and issue-resolution techniques and frameworks that work in the context of local government.
Additionally, you'll refine your skills in developing plans and recommendations for decision-makers, and gain the skills you'll need for effective communication with elected officials, the public, stakeholders and senior management.
You'll also become adept at analyzing public-sector workplace challenges and developing ethical and professional responses, as you improve your knowledge and management skills.
