The Senior Executive Development Programme (SEDP) is designed to enhance practical, professional and personal leadership skills to assist the senior executives (Joint Secretaries or equivalent), as aspiring Secretaries in developing knowledge, skills and behaviour needed to assume leadership roles successfully in public sector governance. The Programme emphasizes in practical applications of tools and techniques and participatory learning amongst the participants, who as senior leaders bring their substantial and diverse experiences in government and their wealth of knowledge. The Programme is designed to harness these assets by creating an environment where participants can engage in dialogue and learn from each other through discussions and exercises. The forum will be instrumental to enable the senior executives in analyzing complex issues in the governance of the country within the broader framework of the constitution, government’s policy priorities and changing expectations of the citizens. Enhanced leadership competencies will empower them to redefine their leadership role, create possible ways for improvements, building commitments and making a difference in serving people.
The Programme aims at enhancing the core competencies of the Senior Executives to develop them as a transformational leader and integrity builder with strategic thinking and policy management skills required to strengthen governance system and improve public service delivery.
