Prepare yourself for senior leadership positions in your agency by becoming a Brookings Executive Education (BEE) Executive Fellow, a unique “customizable cohort” learning experience. As a BEE Executive Fellow you will attend five cohort courses that ground you in BEE’s research based, award winning paradigm for executive success: Leading Thinking®.
Executive Fellows start the 12 month program (20 course days) with an assessment and feedback session. A 360-degree leadership assessment based on the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) ECQs Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) will provide a baseline from which to assess strengths and learning opportunities. In addition to the cohort courses, Fellows’ will receive vouchers to attend other BEE competency-focused leadership courses to close any perceived leadership gaps or specific knowledge, skills, and behaviors you want to develop.
- Experience an hour feedback session with an executive coach who has recently retired from the Senior Executive Service.
- Benefit from the close relationships developed with other fellows in the cohort courses and
- Expand your networks further by interacting with the entire BEE learning community in open enrollment courses.
- Receive the BEE Certificate in Public Leadership – a unique credential that advances and recognizes the leadership of government managers and executives.
At the conclusion of the fellowship you will have the opportunity to take a 180-degree assessment, providing them with data about how you are now perceived as leaders in your organization.
There are deadlines in place for application submission. Be sure to check the Brookings Executive Education website to ensure that you have all required material submitted on time.
