Leadership for a Global Society

Leading Your Organization in an Interconnected World


As a Federal leader, you must address the international implications of every major issue you face. Whether you're working on trade or transportation, law enforcement or land management, education or the exploration of space, global considerations influence the decisions you make.

In this program offered by the Federal Executive Institute (FEI), you will assess the role of the United States in the world and explore the institutional and policy framework that supports our interactions with other countries. You will focus on best practices in dealing with issues having international implications, the negotiation and teamwork skills that have proven to be the most effective in global interactions.

Focusing on political and economic realities, you will deepen your understanding of these factors through case studies, small-group exercises and discussions. These skills will help you examine and understand the shared values as well as the conflicting priorities that shape our world.
