SES Onboarding Forum: Strategic Change and Transition to Address National Priorities


  • No dates currently scheduled


FEI SES Onboarding Forums are one-day government-wide programs designed to accelerate the success of new career Senior Executives in their first two years of executive service. Each Forum is anchored in synergies among the Executive Core Qualifications and features public-private sector strategies to address priorities new Senior Executives face. The Forums are part of the FEI SES Leading EDGE portfolio. They offer a unique enterprise leadership perspective to the onboarding discipline and thereby complement agency-level onboarding programs.

The SES Strategic Change and Transition Onboarding Forum advances your awareness and understanding of how to systematically architect and execute the strategic transformations needed to address emerging enterprise challenges while surviving, and capitalizing on, periods of transition. See our Learn More page for additional background.
