Inter‑Jurisdictional Executive Leadership Program

The Institute on Governance and Centre for Executive & Graduate Education at Dalhousie University are partnering to present a 3rd cohort of the unique Inter-Jurisdictional Executive Leadership Program for leaders and managers in Nova Scotia who work in the municipal, provincial and federal spheres.

The IOG/Dalhousie Inter-Jurisdictional Executive Leadership Program is for committed public service managers and executives who want to improve their leadership competencies and skills in order to function more effectively in an inter-governmental environment.

Learn new skills

In an increasingly interdependent world, issues and files are no longer black and white. While clearly specific jurisdictional roles exist, the challenges facing regional leaders require collaboration, if not outright coordination, between all three levels of government.

Leaders working in this grey zone need practical collaborative skills, resilience and the ability to manage through ambiguity so as to create working relationships to address socio-economic issues.

The IOG/Dalhousie Inter-Jurisdictional Executive Leadership Program will provide strong foundational capabilities, as well as build institutional capacity, by providing leaders with the tools to manage in the new and evolving inter-jurisdictional, inter-sectoral and interdependent world.

What you will gain

Participants attending the IOG/Dalhousie Inter-Jurisdictional Executive Leadership Program will:

  • Gain an enhanced understanding of governance across jurisdictions.
  • Experience coordinated problem-solving of complex issues with partners in other levels of government.
  • Develop a concrete network of contacts crossing government boundaries.
  • Create a personal portfolio of leadership resources.
