Leadership Skills
The Entrepreneurial Leader: Advanced Leadership Skills for Today's Managers and Supervisors

The management cadre of the civil service is faced with demands that lie outside the traditional scope of supervision: increasing diversity in the workforce, changing values among different generations of employees; the loss of large numbers of senior, experienced staff; changing philosophy regarding mission and scope. Many agencies are embracing a model that has parallels in the private sector, and are redefining themselves into a business model. In this evolving environment, the ability to be forward-looking and innovative is critical. This highly interactive seminar will provide practical skills and ideas that apply to your workplace.

  • By encouraging communication that builds productivity
  • By creating strong team relationships that move all employees to higher levels of contribution
  • By encouraging collaboration, open communication, and learning as gateways to a successful planning and implementation

    Professionals at the management/supervisory level who welcome the chance to explore ways of bringing a successful business perspective to their role as supervisors are eligible for this program.
