Leadership recommendations from a public policy analyst

Fred shapes society through research and problem-solving, creating awareness about social and political issues while crafting solutions that he hopes will become public policy or even law. He spends his free time reading, writing, analyzing information, taking MOOCs, and listening to music.

Fred’s leadership collection has helped him as a researcher to effectively analyze matters in both private and public sectors and to determine what is imperative when preparing briefings for his executive team. As a public policy analyst, his job requires him to deploy leadership skills to navigate a partisan environment and effectively use language that is bridge-building, rather than divisive, in nature. These courses have helped him be a resourceful team member and skillfully work alongside people that he might not otherwise agree with. The collection has also helped him become an effective environment scanner, keeping abreast of the latest advances in policy-making, both within his country and in the wider context.

Taking these courses will equip you to provide 21st-century leadership direction. You will become conversant in the process of data-driven decision making in a variety of leadership settings. You will then understand the processes involved with leading independently and knowledgeably. In today’s world, where AI is advancing at exponential rates, leaders also need to improve their soft skills such as creativity, intuition, and personal empathy. This collection will help you do that.
