Federal managers are constantly honing their leadership skills. As an emerging leader, how can you build leadership skills that generate success for you, your teams, and your organization?
You can elevate your position as a good manager to that of an extraordinary leader by focusing on your strengths rather than weaknesses, and by developing these strengths in combinations.
In this course, you’ll gain competency in multiple areas, accelerating your leadership performance beyond incremental improvements in a weakness. You’ll also gain insights into your own leadership style and abilities through two leadership assessments: StrengthsFinder 34 and the Hogan Development Survey.
Through a combination of lectures, small group discussion, experiential learning, and individualized coaching, you’ll learn to develop and implement attributes and competencies of extraordinary leaders:
The curriculum is based on research presented in John Zenger and Joseph Folkman's book, "The Extraordinary Leader: Turning Good Managers into Great Leaders." You’ll also study Zenger and Folkman’s Five Fatal Flaws that lead to failure in leadership and methods for identifying and fixing them.
