Transformational leadership is one of the most significant issues influencing federal government performance and agency effectiveness. Government leaders are being asked to reimagine operations, function with fewer resources and find new ways to tackle complex challenges. Bringing visionary thinking to these situations in transformational ways is a skillset that distinguishes great executives from good. Since its founding in 1968, the Federal Executive Institute (FEI) has empowered more than 20,000 senior executives to become visionary leaders who can think broadly and manage strategically. As your agency leadership faces the challenges ahead, FEI serves as to provide an executive leadership-development opportunity that challenges government executives to reach beyond their past practices to embrace a broader perspective of governance and new leadership capacity to better serve and support the American people. Using the U.S. Constitution as the principal foundation, the Leadership for a Democratic Society (LDS) program guides executives to understand the diverse goals of the government and the citizens it serves. FEI challenges executives to excel in a 21st-century world while remaining connected to the Constitutional values forged in the 18th century. Through this program of study, government executives find their voices and access wisdom to move their agencies in the strategic directions necessary for it to better achieve its mission. The LDS program provides a life-empowering and career-strengthening experience that will serve as the enduring foundation of each executive leader’s journey of personal and professional growth. Leveraging the expertise and experience of each executive, the LDS establishes a learning community where the participants and faculty are both teachers and learners. Anchored in scientifically validated leadership theory and principals, the core curriculum is aligned with OPM’s Executive Core Qualifications and Leadership Competencies. In addition to the LDS Core Curriculum, LDS participants, through a selection of learning environments and topics, tailor their learning experience to meet their self-determined goals and interests. Each executive completes several introspective assignments, at least one action learning project, and produces plans to transform themselves and their organizations.
LDS prepares senior-level leaders for today’s complex challenges, including:
