Webinar: Leadership in Turbulent Times

The Executive Core Qualifications Illustrated by America’s Best Leaders

We are living in complex and uncertain times. We are constantly striving towards success, better performance and getting things done, and yet we are dealing with so much burnout, less satisfaction and lower engagement. According to the most recent Gallup Survey on the State of the American Workplace, only 33% of the US Employees are engaged at work compared to 70%, which we find in the world’s best organizations.

The State of Federal Career Senior Leadership Report administered by the Deloitte Survey Research Center (SRC) in collaboration with the Senior Executives Association (SEA), around the area of transformational leadership, identified that 61% of senior career leaders felt empowered to implement meaningful change, but only 52% of respondents agreed they are able to restructure their areas of responsibility as needed to respond to new ideas.

How might we help navigating change and transitions and yet embrace new ideas and innovation? What does leadership look like in times like this and how might we create and build a resilient Senior Executive Service? The George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership recognizes that not only do organizations need to change, but there are key tactics and strategies leaders can learn to practice and embrace for a thriving workforce.

Why attend?
  • Leading People: The story of Civil War commander Joshua Chamberlain and his successful intervention with a bunch of mutineers offers a window to explore employee engagement – one of the most important aspects of leading people

  • Leading Change: Alice Paul’s campaign to secure the Nineteenth Amendment is a story that brings alive a new model on the three types of people needed to lead change.

  • Building Coalition: Abraham Lincoln’s leadership during the first two years of the Civil War, particularly in the context of moving towards emancipation and the eventual abolition of slavery, offers fascinating practical steps to help build coalitions.

  • Results Driven: The Battle of Gettysburg provides a great way to consider the competency of results driven, particularly allowing us to dive into the sub-competencies of accountability, decisiveness, and problem solving, with models for each.

  • Business Acumen: Lastly, George Washington’s management of his estate at Mount Vernon, including the innovative farming techniques he introduced, offers a unique way to consider business acumen and the related concepts of risk management and the related concepts of risk management and sustainability.

Who should attend?
All business professionals in search of leadership training and wisdom.
