Announcing the GovLoop Leadership Guide

GovLoop is excited to announce its new guide: 10 Traits of a Great Government Leader.

Recently, GovLoop wrapped up its first multi-week online social learning course, titled Your Path to Leadership: Mastering Core Competencies to Get Ahead in Government. The course examined the ten traits of a great government leader listed in this guide. The three week course was grouped into the context of weekly themes and the guide served as a workbook for participants throughout the course. The three themes for the course were:

We developed this guide to help you take advantage of the course material to reflect on your leadership style and refocus on how you can improve as a leader. To do so, we have taken some of the best leadership posts from GovLoop, synthesized the content and then put it back into your hands. We share 10 traits of a leader and a corresponding exercise to help you reflect on how you can improve the trait in your career. Our hope is that through each exercise you think critically about yourself as a leader, challenge your behavior and identify strategies for growth. Remember, the process starts with you and your commitment to improve.


You can also download a PDF of the document here.

Over the next few weeks, watch for new posts on each of the three themes listed above. We’ll provide a recap of each week's theme, an archived recording of each week's webinar and the presentations used by our great Subject Matter Experts.

Update: You can now access all three posts: 1) Introducing and Implementing New Ideas; 2) Transforming the Toughest Employees and Teams; 3) Beyond Doing More With Less: Doing Different.

Hi Lisa, thanks for letting us know. The issue has been resolved and you should now be able to follow the links in both Issuu and in the PDF!

I actually signed up for Issu so I could read this guide, but none of the links to the "reading assignments" seem to be accessible. I tried every kind of clicking imaginable. I tried downloading. I tried iphone. I tried iPad. I tried computer. I tried pdf version. No go. What am I doing wrong?

Your wavering color print undermines the ability to see and read your guide.  Please make a high contrast between your print and the background iaw Section 508 of the Americans with disabilities act.
