Program overview

Executive level positions bring new and demanding leadership and management challenges. This program describes the broad role requirements of EL 2s through the Work Level Standards (WLS) and deepens your understanding of the capabilities and behaviours identified in the Integrated Leadership System (ILS) critical to high performance at the EL 2 level. Learn how to confidently and appropriately respond to the challenge.
