Navigating cross-cultural communication and overcoming regulatory hurdles are among the greatest challenges that face government and public-sector organizations. Because of the global nature of the business today, challenges arise when stakeholders must communicate with those outside their regions or sectors. Wharton Executive Education has experience working with organizations like yours to help your people work through different channels, break down organizational silos, and increase their level of impact in public-private partnerships. Our expertise includes:
Collaborative Program Design
We partner with you to identify what your organization’s challenges are. Then, we design the educational program that will create the most impact for your participants. This may include action learning projects, site visits, or lectures by faculty and industry experts.
Management and Leadership Education
Specialists can make great leaders, but first, they need to learn how. Many talented people rise in government and public-sector organizations based on their technical expertise. Many of these individuals also have great potential, or significant inherent leadership skills. Through customized programming, we provide an opportunity for them to develop skills, such as managing through uncertainty, influence and persuasion, and leadership communication while expanding on existing public policy.
In today’s competitive funding environment, on-the-ground decisions must be tied to an organization’s overall mission. Successful employees need improved project execution skills, and the ability to work within complex organizations. Our custom solutions will prepare your people to lead through uncertainty, communicate effectively with stakeholders, and make strategic decisions for the greater good.
We also create programs devoted to crucial business topics, such as:
- Change Management
- Scenario Planning
- Critical Thinking
- Influence and Persuasion
- Effective Communication
- Risk Management
- Innovation In a Changing World
By tailoring each custom program to your organization’s needs, we deliver knowledge for immediate impact.
