Learn More Executive Retreats Customized retreats offer executive teams an opportunity to focus, reset and collaborate, whether they have been intact for years or are new to working with one another. Our best-in-class executive coaches and facilitators work with agency leaders to create a session agenda that addresses their unique needs and will result in actionable outcomes and meaningful change. Retreats typically focus on topics such as establishing team dynamics, setting a strategic vision and fostering innovation . We include options for following up with leaders post-retreat to ensure this is not just an event, but part of a process to achieve greater impact. 360 Assessments and Executive Coaching Our experienced coaches work with individuals, teams and groups to help them reach their leadership goals. The Partnership’s leadership coaching provides federal leaders with highly tailored support to identify their unique strengths and tackle organizational challenges. Our approach includes the administration of the Public Service Leadership 360 assessment, goal-setting, and a series of confidential, one-on-one sessions to identify actions the leader can test on the job to achieve set objectives. In addition to individual support, we also offer our 360 assessment for groups and teams who want to identify collective strengths and collaboratively improve their leadership competencies. Executive Development Despite the critical role they play in government, members of the Senior Executive Service, or SES, lack training and development opportunities to become more effective leaders. We help SES members succeed by working with their agencies to design a range of customized executive development programs, including group coaching sessions with experienced executive coaches, action learning projects, mentoring opportunities, conversations with former senior executives or C-suite members, and 360 assessments.
