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.

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.
