Leadership Potential Seminar:
A Personal PerspectiveDeveloping Future Leaders
This seminar assists agencies in their leadership succession planning through early development of current and future managers and leaders. Set in the context of peer-to-peer leadership, this seminar first helps participants find and define a mandate for leadership within themselves.
Through assessment, reflection, discussions, and demanding application, participants discover and practice the skills and insights that foster effective and legitimate leadership. The experience establishes strong foundations in self-awareness, continual learning, building and sustaining relationships, and creative problem solving that are the prerequisites for increasing levels of organizational responsibility. Participants use the insights gained over the two weeks to outline and implement a strategic action plan that will enhance their potential for leadership and link personal strengths, talents, and objectives to the Government's mission of service.
Agencies will increase their potential for success in a future that may be ill-defined by sending high achievers to this dynamic seminar where they will find the commitment, the energy, and the skills to adapt to changing needs and to work toward continual improvement. The seminar is appropriate for those in or transitioning into the supervisory/management pipeline, as well as for those whose contributions will come from outside traditional positions of authority.
