As a public servant, your position involves providing advice, opinions, reflection and viewpoints on internal as well as external initiatives and decisions.  In fact, as a federal, provincial or municipal public servant your professional success depends on your ability to think strategically.  We are often told we "need to be strategic" in order to address the diverse challenges inherent in our organization.    During your career as a public servant you will be faced with many different circumstances where your ability to be a strategic thinker may mean the difference between success or failure.

Strategic thinking is a learned skill as well as a commonly applied competency.  This course is designed to help you:

  • Identify and use essential skills, knowledge and behaviours that contribute to strategic thinking
  • Use a step-by-step process to think strategically

All public servants - federal, provincial, regional, or municipal sectors.

In this information-packed TeleCourse, you will learn:
  • How to position strategic thinking within the spectrum of pubic sector competencies
  • How to define and distinguish between strategic and other types of thinking
  • How to use analytical, critical and creative skills in your job
  • How to develop your own approach to applying strategic thinking as a key competency
  • The 10 most important skills that will make you a better strategic thinker
  • How to establish and practice linkages between skills, knowledge and behaviour of a strategist
  • How to meet the strategic expectations of your superiors, clients and stakeholders

The course will be delivered by a highly experienced practitioner and trainer with over 30 years of experience in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.  Josef Jurkovic is a founder and lead instructor of a national training company, the Centre for Excellence in Communications.
