About the course

Public leaders today operate in a world characterised by Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA). They are also answerable to multiple internal and external stakeholders, from public to private organisations, citizens and civil society groups- each with its own distinct agenda and interests. In addition to these complexities, public leaders are also confronted with policy conundrums with no easy answers.

On the other hand, if public leaders are also able to leverage on the expertise offered by stakeholders and harness the benefits of technologies, they may be able to create more value at lower cost, thus turning challenges into opportunities. In order to do so, public leaders must develop new competencies and skills to complement their existing expertise. What are some of these new competencies and how can leaders acquire and nurture these?

The Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy's four-day programme on 7 Skills for Public Leaders prepares you for a VUCA world by providing cutting-edge insights on complexity, diversity, and resilience. Guided by the lead instructor's book, The 21st Century Public Manager, and using tools, cases and best practices, the programme inculcates seven key skills to help you become more effective within your operating environment.
