Even in the best of times, it can be stressful working in a state government environment. With endless budget challenges, partisan bickering and significant state issues, it can be hard to lift colleagues, staffers and even ourselves out of the funk. That’s why it’s critical to drive engagement throughout your agency and office. Part One of this session is about maximizing engagement through strengths-based leadership. Part Two focuses on your emotional impact on others and what you can do to connect and move ahead with colleagues and constituents. Part Three is about energizing yourself through four critical wellsprings. All three parts are delivered with the unique blend of research, best practices, and improvisational comedy that Leading Edge is known for. By the end of the day, you will leave renewed, taking critical tools and skills you’ll need to lift yourselves and others up.
