The Public Sector Leadership Certificate (PSLC) is designed for emerging leaders or those wanting energize their leadership working in law enforcement, public safety, city, state and county government, and any public sector organization.
This program was developed through extensive feedback from public sector leaders about what is needed to be successful in the public sector currently and in our changing world. The program was delivered as a pilot and further developed to its offering in the spring of 2021.
Participants learn how to apply their skills working with others in day-to-day operations and long-term visioning where decision-making, critical thinking, communication, coaching and mentoring, emotional intelligence, and other professional skills are required.
This skills toolbox is especially helpful during high- stress situations, environmental crises, political meetings, and when working with members of the public.

The Public Sector Leader Certificate Program gave me the knowledge to not only be able to properly rate myself as leader but also to see how others in my field rated me. This side by side comparison opened my eyes to areas I hadn’t thought of as in need of improvement and pointed out strengths I didn’t know I had.
