Management Development: Leading Organizations

A 3 & 5 Day Hands-On Workshop at the Strategic Level

Course Description: The workshop provides the opportunity for experienced federal managers, GS13 and GS-14, to step into the world of dynamic thinking, creativity and innovation. Managers bring real problems to the seminar and work together using seminar learning, each other’s knowledge and experience to work through them. Participants will sharpen their skills in the areas of leadership, communication and problem solving. They will also receive valuable insight about their personal strengths and developmental focus.

All attendees will receive a Student Handbook and access to an Online Toolkit, containing tools and research developed and gathered over decades by our instructors.
