Strategic Leadership Seminar

The IWP Strategic Leadership Seminar is an intensive, customized one-week program for government, military, corporate, and NGO leadership. The Seminar is held on the IWP campus at 1521 16th Street NW in Washington, D.C.

Expert IWP scholar-practitioners lead the seminars and explore key strategic issues through a combination of graduate-level lectures and experiential exercises. Participants come away with an enhanced understanding of United States geostrategic priorities and how those priorities might affect a given participant group’s interests abroad. By learning the different tools of statecraft, participants will better forecast, mitigate, and manage during an international crisis or conflict.

Seminar leaders encourage strategic thinking and constructive debate.


Each seminar agenda is customized based on a participant group’s specific needs. General topics can include

  • The Art of Statecraft: National Security Roles & Missions
  • Public Diplomacy & Strategic Influence
  • Intelligence Operations
  • Economic Statecraft & Risk Assessment
  • Peace Building
  • “Winning without War”
  • Cyber Terrorism
