Overview

Successful government rests heavily on the effectiveness of managers, yet agencies may be unaware of how to nurture and guide new leaders to foster the future of good government. As a new leader in your agency, you can take the first step by attending this course and creating a comprehensive development plan for continued leadership growth.

Through intensive assessments and self-analysis, you’ll receive personalized feedback from assessment specialists, superiors, peers, and subordinates to gain greater self-awareness and understanding of how your own strengths and areas for development can impact team collaboration and dynamics.

In a formally structured session, you will receive feedback and suggested actions for improving performance from trained executive coaches on selected assessment instruments:


  • OPM Leadership 360
  • Conflict Style Assessment
  • MBTI
  • Energy Profiler

The coaching was an amazing resource and I will definitely be able to apply the lessons I learned right away…the assessment reports were one of the most useful I've seen. The facets were very informative.”
