Communication 1- Verbal
Communication 2 Writing

2) Managing Others

Performance Management
Managing Change and Resistance
Addressing Workplace Conflicts

3) Managing the Work

Planning and Organizing
Team Effectiveness

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.
