Leadership Development

For government to address the critical issues of today and tomorrow, it needs effective leaders who drive change, engage diverse workforces and act as stewards of the public trust.  

Our leadership development programs are more than bullet points on a resume. We provide leaders across government—from entry-level career employees to members of the Senior Executive Service and political appointees—with the skills they need to make a positive impact at their agencies, and plan, design and implement creative solutions to government’s most intractable problems. We also enable enrollees to assess their own performance and progress as leaders using the Public Service Leadership Model and provide agencies with more targeted support for their management needs. and provide agencies with more targeted support for their management needs

In all, our work provides federal leaders with tools, techniques and relationships they will use to create a better and more effective government throughout their careers.

Public Service Leadership Model

Public servants aren’t driven by the bottom line—they’re driven by impact. Instead of asking how they can generate the biggest profits, they ask themselves, “How can we do the most good?” 

To help government leaders take advantage of the opportunity they have been given to improve our country, we developed the Public Service Leadership Model. This model is the new standard for effective federal leadership. It identifies the core values leaders must prioritize, and the critical competencies they must master to achieve their agencies’ missions and desired impact. By using the model, leaders can evaluate their performance, assess their leadership progress and chart a course for self-improvement.
