Senior Executive Leadership Program

Course Introduction & Objectives

The four-week Senior Executive Leadership Program (SELP) is mainly designed for senior public service officials and corporate executives who face the challenges of governance and decision-making on a day-to-day basis. The highly intensive program not only aims to hone the leadership skills of the participants but also exposes them to real-life policy issues facing the country, and engages them in meaningful discourse in search of solutions or alternatives. It equips them with the relevant knowledge, skills and tools that not only broaden their horizon as leaders but make them better-informed decision-makers.

SELP consists of three weekly modules on three broad themes and a week-long learning visit, as given below:

Week 1: Bhutan-Changes and Challenges
Week 2: Governance and Leadership
Week 3: Political Economy of Public Policy
Week 4: Learning Journey

SELP provides a platform for leaders from different sectors to come together, interact and brainstorm on critical national issues. It also provides a unique opportunity for participants to network and collaborate, and to form professional bonds that go beyond the month-long stay at RIGSS.

SELP is the Institute’s flagship leadership development program, open to all and fully funded by the Institute. Participants for the course are selected through an open and merit-based competitive selection process, and selected candidates are on full scholarship of the Institute.
