2) Managing Others

Performance Management

Addressing Workplace Conflicts

3) Managing the Work

It consists of a series of well-planned, educational modules that teach core leadership concepts through interactive activities and classroom exercises. Students meet one day a week for seven weeks and have an opportunity to interact with colleagues from other government agencies.
