The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) has partnered with the University of Alberta School of Business, Executive Education, to create the GNWT Leadership Development Program for Executive Managers, Managers and Emerging Managers in all departments, boards and agencies (“departments”) of the GNWT.
The GNWT understands that an organization investing in and developing employees produces staff who are skilled, committed and loyal to an organization.
The goals of the program are to:
- Develop a sustainable core group of middle and senior managers in the GNWT, with a targeted approach to ensure that Affirmative Action designated groups develop the skills to progress and succeed in leadership roles;
- Assist the GNWT in workforce planning by providing emerging managers and managers with opportunities to further enhance management skills; and
- Assist emerging managers and supervisors to prepare for future roles and/or advancement within the GNWT.
