Overview

Managers make the Federal government work today, and developing management competencies is an excellent investment in the future success of your agency. Supervisors and managers who want to upgrade their skills will have an exceptional learning experience. 

You will learn how to think more critically and improve your communication skills. It's an ideal experience, whether you are a new middle manager or an experienced first-line supervisor. Through four weeks of online learning and a one week classroom session, you will study essential management competencies through individual assessments, readings, small group activities, real-world experiences and stimulating class discussions.

Managers have a great deal of responsibility for government productivity and performance, especially managers or supervisors and those with oversight of groups and programs. As a key leader in your organization, your challenges are complex, and your leadership is integral to your agency's success. This course is a vital step in your development.

How You Will Benefit

  • Improve existing skills and develop new abilities, tools and techniques
  • Increase your self-knowledge and leadership capacity through critical thinking, exploring strengths theory and examining change models
  • Solve a real management challenge through a small group action learning process
  • Build peer networks across Federal agencies 
  • Learn new ways to develop and deploy your staff
