Overview

The Federal Executive Institute (FEI) uses the U.S. Constitution as the principal guide in helping you to understand the diverse goals of the government and the citizens you serve. FEI fosters executives who excel in a 21st-century world while remaining connected to the Constitutional principles forged in the 18th century. We invite you to join both worlds at FEI.

The themes of FEI's Leadership for a Democratic Society (LDS) program reflect and enhance the Constitutional underpinning of Federal Government work and the common culture of senior Federal executives. At FEI, you will build your skills in personal leadership and gain insights into organizational theory, the policy framework in which Government leadership occurs, and the broad global trends and events that shape government agendas.

Since 1968, FEI has been known for the personal attention it gives to every executive who attends its programs. FEI's approach builds a learning community where Federal executives and faculty are both teachers and participants. The LDS program is custom designed to fit your particular interests through individual feedback, small- and large-group sessions, one-on-one coaching from a faculty facilitator and assistance from program colleagues in a small Leadership Development Team.

How You Will Benefit

  • Gain a broader understanding of the Constitution and how it continues to guide today's Government
