FliP University x IPAC

The Institute of Public Administration of Canada is excited to partner with FliP University for blended and online learning solutions.

FliP U develops more compassionate and effective leaders, more empowered and confident followers, and more collaborative, partner-centric organizations with our transformative blended learning programs based on the book Leadership is Half the Story: A Fresh Look at Followership, Leadership and Collaboration (University of Toronto, Rotman Press).

  • We obsessively curate content that is ‘pracademic’, i.e., deeply rooted in science and made practical with heaps of interactivity, job aids, tools, self-assessments, group discussions, case studies, and more!
  • We pay special attention to the threshold concepts that stimulate deep learning, changes forever thinking and develops skills. Content isn’t just passively consumed: it’s actively practiced.
  • Our talented team includes a neuroscientist along with other globally recognized subject matter experts.

  • Once you register you have lifetime access to the course content.
  • This online social learning approach is uniquely effective for virtual or distributed teams.

Being a leader people WANT to follow

This course evolves thinking from leader-centric to partner-centric. And, unlike many leadership courses, this is not about self-help: it is a skill-building course on how to be a great leader of others! Because you’re not leading if no one is following.

Are you on a mission to seek out better more collaborative decision making, to boldly go where no one has gone before? We face dozens of decisions every day from the ordinary to those more akin to intergalactic warfare. Decision-making is a skill with many facets: How do you decide how you will decide? How do you move the process forward? How do you give opinions in a way that gets heard and valued? What do you do if the “wrong” decision is made? How can you harness the most value from your crew?
