Aboitiz-DAP-NUCESO Course for Government Executives Invites Enrollees for Second Run
The Aboitiz Group, Development Academy of the Philippines-Graduate School of Public and Development Management (DAP-GSPDM), and National Union of Career Executive Service Officers (NUCESO), Inc. are now inviting participants to Batch 2 of the Executive Course on Leadership, Innovation, Communication, and Knowledge Management (CLICK2) for career executive service officers (CESOs) and other third-level government officials.
The course aims to equip senior government officials with holistic leadership and management skills to cope with changing demands in the workplace, especially in the new normal. As they apply their learnings by developing sustainable work strategies, they become phronetic leaders who are proactive catalysts of positive change.
“We are grateful to have the support of all our partners from NUCESO and DAP once again as we bring back the CLICK program. The positive response from participants of our initial run has been truly encouraging and we want to take the opportunity to extend the executive course to more CESOs and government leaders,” shared Aboitiz Group President and CEO Sabin M. Aboitiz.
As the official private sector partner of the executive course, the Aboitiz Group will provide resource persons who will share current best practices in various areas of management, digital transformation, and Public-Private Partnerships.
“This is an important advocacy for Aboitiz because we all need to come together to help build and strengthen our leaders, present and future and from across sectors, especially now when it’s all hands on deck to manage and overcome this pandemic,” Aboitiz emphasized.
The 53-hour CLICK2 executive certificate course will cover six modules with classes delivered virtually from July 7 to August 18, 2021. As a major final output of the course, participants will integrate all their key learnings into their individual policy foresight papers that are applicable to their respective agencies.
“The CLICK program is one of the newest and most innovative programs of the DAP Graduate School developed exclusively for senior officials of government. They are the key decision-makers of their agencies, so they have the power and the unique opportunity to influence change. The program curriculum has a strong focus on public governance, futures thinking and strategic foresight, which blend well with the Aboitiz theme of innovation. Our classes are interactive and inclusive, where everyone’s ideas are heard and valued,” shared DAP Graduate School Dean Dr. Lizan Perante-Calina.
NUCESO President ASec. Lynn Danao-Moreno highlighted how the program can benefit the participating co-learners not only through skill and competency building, but also by providing a venue to forge connections with their contemporaries in the private and public sector.
“Participants will gain access to a network of fellow public servants and thought leaders in the private sector while being exposed to relevant and insightful discourse in the virtual space provided by CLICK,” Danao-Moreno said.
