    The Executive Leadership Program for Regulators 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.


    Course Syllabus


    Prior to the program, attendees will be 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.

    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.
