Overview

In an era of constant change and challenges, government agency managers must step up for greater effectiveness and efficiency.  This course offers an unmatched overview of your systems and best practices, and a useful framework for leading your organization into the future. Experienced mid-level managers can assess and improve their organizations' overall effectiveness by learning how to help guide your organization during time of unprecedented change, challenge and uncertainty. Through four weeks of online learning and one week in the classroom incorporating presentations, small-group work and practice, you will learn how to engage your workers and foster innovative thinking and action.

You will learn four useful "frames" for recognizing, understanding and improving interrelated, vital systems:

  • The Structural Frame: Organizing and structuring groups and teams
  • The Human Resources Frame: Tailoring organizations to satisfy human needs, improve human resource management and build positive interpersonal and group dynamics
  • The Political Frame: Coping with power and conflict, building coalitions, honing political skills, and dealing with internal and external politics
  • The Symbolic Frame: Shaping a culture that gives purpose and meaning to work; staging organizational performance drama for internal and external audiences; building effective team spirit

How You Will Benefit

  • Enhance your ability as a leader to think comprehensively and multi-dimensionally
  • Encourage flexibility with your organization and view opportunities and events from multiple angles
  • Try new approaches to managing that can lead to greater organizational efficiency
  • Practice collaborative management of work team cultures
  • Create a powerful vision for your organization and set strategies for moving toward its realization
  • Forge productive negotiations and defuse wasteful, unproductive conflict

Who Should Attend

Second- and third-line managers (those who typically manage supervisors or other managers) who are seeking to refine and improve the performance of their organizations.


This course meets one of the requirements for the Manager level of the Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Certificate program. For more information go to the LEAD certificate  page.
