    The Executive Leadership Program for Regulators: Building Regulatory Leaders is a comprehensive three-day workshop covering a broad array of topics.  We discuss issues and problems associated with Creating a Positive Public Relations Program (what is the message, who is the audience, when to build media partnerships, and how to manage the medium and the message), Creating an Appropriate Relationship with the Stakeholders and Mastering the Art of Negotiation (importance of credibility, developing negotiation skills, and learning the variables that influence regulation), identifying and understanding the numerous types and styles of Regulatory Leadership, and Organizational Culture and Change.

    After registering, attendees are asked to complete a brief survey so that the instructors can tailor the program to the specific needs and interests of those participating.  Attendees will participate in various role-playing activities, scenarios, group-work, and discussion.  In the course materials, attendees will find several valuable worksheets and checklists that they can take away and apply in their agencies and organizations. 

    Who should attend?
    The course content is directly relevant to those in a regulatory leadership position at any level of experience.  The course is also useful for marketing/communication personnel, legislators, board members, and legal counsel.

    Developing a Professional Attitude: Ethics for the Regulatory Investigator

    Investigators are called upon to apply professional judgment to ever-changing factual situations as they perform their duties. These discretionary decisions coupled with the authority possessed by an investigator during the investigatory stage can have very real consequences for all parties involved including the regulant, the department or agency the investigator represents, and the investigator. There is a need to ensure that the investigator understands the importance of maintaining high ethical standards in carrying out his or her duties including the exercise of professional judgment. This course is designed to provide students with an advanced understanding of guidelines for ethical behavior as a regulatory investigator. The course will (i) review models for professional conduct and behavior by examining ethical standards establish by statute or governmental policy and professional ethical standards, (ii) explore the concepts of conflict of interests and scope of liability as they relate to public employment in general and the work of the investigator in specific, and (iii) consider practical applications of ethical dilemmas through case studies and scenarios.


    This program is offered in conjunction with CLEAR's Annual Educational Conference, September 11-13, 2014.
