So I’m super excited about the GovLoop/Young Government Leaders Next Generation of Government Summit July 6 & 7th. We are already at almost 200 registrants of the raddest, smartest, government innovators and it’ll be a blast. Make sure to register soon before it sells out
There are lots of skills I hope people learn at Next Generation of Government…but here’s my top 3
1) Managing Your Career – It’s a skill that is rarely taught and doesn’t sound important. But it is so key to learn how to think through changes and make strategic decisions in your career. We’ve got a couple great sessions on this:
-Managing Your Career & LIfe – A Framework – amazing session by Frank DiGiammarino where he walks through key decision process
-Career Conversations – a discussion with two government SES about how they made key decisions and key success tips in their career.
2) Get Things Done – I’m all about action so It’s amazing to see how some people get amazing things done in government. They know how to manage a project, sell ideas, and navigate political waters. We’ve got a couple great sessions on this:
-Project Management – The real story on how to get things done
-Top Young Execs – Getting Stuff Done – Real tips on how to navigate and get things done when you are much younger than your colleagues.
-William Eggers, author of If We Can Put a Man On the Moon – How to Get Big Things Done in Government…an amazing book on (yes you guessed it)..how to get big things done in gov.
3) Managing – Management is such an essential part of work whether you are managing or being managed. We’ll have a number of sessions such as:
-Managing for the 1st Time – where you will learn how to deal with being a boss from the leading expert from the Washington Post
-Managing Up – You may not be a manager yet…but everyone needs to learn how to manage up. A great philosophy.
-Performance reviews – Everyone gets one and some have to give them. This session we’ll learn from the best on how to navigate to ensure they go smoothly
These are just a couple of amazing things that I hope people learn at Next Generation of Government. Register today.
