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.

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.
