[FLR] Government Leadership; Investors, Innovators & Risk Takers

Happy Friday!


Next week is a very important week in Canada – it’s National Public Service Week. The theme is “proudly serving Canadians.” 


There are almost 550,000 employees working in Federal departments, agencies, crown corporations, RCMP and the Canadian Forces. In my travels, I talk with a variety of people and often hear different perspectives around work ethic, pensions, etc. From my perspective, the vast majority of public sector employees we support from coast to coast in our leadership & career development programs are well educated, hard working, dedicated and committed. 


The very fabric of this great country is supported by the great work & leadership these professionals provide.


While the short-term outlook for Canada is positive, it’s important that government executives recognize the issues concerning CEOs are relevant beyond the private sector.“
