The Leadership Challenge is an intensive Leadership Development Programme for Senior Public Servants.
The programme was first launched in 2005 by the Institute of Public Administration. Over three hundred senior public servants drawn from central and local government, state agencies and the health sector, have attended the programme to date.
The Leadership Challenge has recently been substantially redesigned to ensure that it continues to address the major challenges of leadership and change in the Irish public sector. The programme is short, intensive and delivered in three modules, two of which are residential, with individual coaching.
