This course empowers participants to become effective leaders and managers in the international development context. International development work involves multi-stakeholder cooperation and delivery in challenging environments. We designed this course to target governments from developing countries as well as practitioners in the international development community. The course tailors leadership and management training as it pertains to the public service sector and public sector reform. The skill set that needs to be developed includes leadership and decision-making, organizational management, human capital development, negotiations, navigating through political waters, and effective communications. The case studies are designed to address key issues in international development.
The seminar will be delivered through 5 live online sessions via videoconferencing platform. Each session will last approximately 3.5 hours and will start at a time to be announced closer to the seminar, but the starting time will be within a time window of 7:00 am – 8:30 am Washington DC time (Eastern Standard Time). We expect the classes to be highly interactive and will include presentations, case studies and exercises.
