This Centre’s Corporate Public Affairs Leadership in the 21st Century executive education program isthe next step for graduates of the Centre’s Institute program, and/or for public affairs practitioners who aspire to be leaders in the function.
This four-day intensive program has been developed to challenge and prepare practitioners in the leadership management stream in corporate public affairs. Practitioners wanting to participate in this module need to apply. Admission is competitive. Sponsorship of the application by the Head of Function is desirable, but not essential.
This new Centre program is informed by international best practice corporate public affairs leadership development, as well as the involvement of Centre Executive Director Wayne Burns in Harvard University Kennedy School’s executive leadership program.
The program requires participants to immerse themselves in the residential program, and for them to be present and available over the four-day program. Learning is driven from engagement. Participants who cannot participate fully in the four-day program will not be eligible for graduation.
Corporate Public Affairs Leadership in the 21st Century will strengthen markedly the leadership capability and capacity of graduates, and be of significant benefit to the organisations for which they work.
The program offers participants and the organisations that sponsor them with global best executive education content, expertise, and experience in leadership broadly, and in the corporate public affairs function specifically.
The program challenges the commonly held notions of authority versus leadership, prepares participants to lead difficult change, strengthens their diagnostic skills, and distils the challenges of leadership under pressure, including engagement with stakeholders who resist change or whom may seek to derail it.
Corporate Public Affairs Leadership in the 21st Century is taught by a Centre Faculty that develops and delivers leadership and corporate public affairs executive education internationally. The program is delivered once a year, participation is restricted to 35 practitioners. Applications close 10 June 2019.
Graduates of Corporate Public Affairs Leadership in the 21st Century are awarded 30 credit points towards a GCCPA (Graduate Centre for Corporate Public Affairs).
