Comprehensive course analysis
About the course
Motivating others is at the very heart of effective public leadership. Successful public leaders do more than just manage and direct; they also inspire those they lead to look beyond the challenges of daily work to rediscover the ideals and values that give meaning to what they do.
Everyone in public service takes an oath to the Constitution—to the ideal of creating a more perfect union. Public leaders help those they lead to be true to this oath and to engage the mission of their agency in advancing the security and welfare of the public. This seminar is designed to provide public leaders with the understanding and skills they need to succeed at this critical leadership responsibility.
