The Executive Fellows Program (EFP) is an intensive, three-week residential program for senior executives to develop their adaptive capacity to lead public sector organisations, providing a rare opportunity for focused learning and reflection.

Why choose the Executives Fellow Program?

Find out what some of our recent graduates think about the Executive Fellows Program and learn how it could benefit you.

The EFP is taught by world-renowned academics, including faculty from Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada and Warwick University in the UK, along with top practitioners from the public, not-for-profit and private sectors.

The EFP is grounded in the reality of modern public purpose sector challenges , while applying the latest thinking and academic rigor.

Presenters and participants share their experiences and insights in a dynamic environment. Our contemporary learning approach includes extensive individual and group-based reflection, real-world case studies, experiential learning and access to exceptional leaders.

The emphasis on immersive, experiential learning is a proven, effective way of enhancing leadership and strategic capacity. Participants will be challenged to rapidly make sense of unfamiliar areas, develop and propose forward-thinking strategies, and to draw out broader leadership lessons. Immersive exercises introduce an added level of complexity, and push the capabilities of participants. Participants will benefit from new expertise to leverage influence and relationships with ministers, boards, staff and stakeholders, to create public value.

Tailored for success

Senior executives face constantly shifting priorities and must adapt their thinking to continually provide benefit to the public and not-for-profit sectors benefit and deliver value to the citizens they serve.

The EFP is modelled on leading global executive programs with a tailored focus on the needs of Australia and New Zealand. Participants will benefit from strategies, frameworks, and a global perspective, which are required to effectively lead across cultural boundaries and in an increasingly complex operating environment.

The EFP provides a rare opportunity for learning and reflection away from the office, allowing participants to build high level stakeholder engagement skills, professional networks across portfolios in a focused setting.

A community of leaders

The benefits of the EFP extend beyond the classroom through national and international networks developed during the program.

Participants benefit from an expanded network which provides support across portfolios, jurisdictions and sectors.

The ANZSOG Alumni Program helps graduates to build on professional relationships initiated in the EFP.
