Leadership Development Top Priority for Feds

Leadership development is the number one priority for agencies training programs, according to a recent informal survey of government professionals by American Management Association (AMA) Enterprise Government Solutions.

An article in the Federal Times said:

Leadership development was the first priority of 28 percent of respondents for fiscal 2011, and the first priority of 38 percent of the respondents for fiscal 2012.

With budgets tight and so many baby boomers retiring, it makes sense that government organizations are continuing to focus on leadership development and those skills that make a good leader great. AMA is seeing this trend confirmed anecdotally with the government organizations they work with, as they balance tighter budgets with an increased desire for training programs that focus on developing vital leadership and supervisory skills.

Here at CI International, we offer a wide range of leadership development training workshops that are guided by the following key beliefs:
  • Value and character are the foundation of effective leadership.
  • Self leadership is the best leadership example a leader can provide.
