Peer Delegation: How Do I Manage My Peers?
In this workshop, you will learn best practices for how you can be successful when it comes to the tricky task of managing your peers. You will also participate in an interactive activity where you’ll practice managing by using the leadership model – name it, reframe it, ask for support.
You’re Being Audited: Deep-Dive into Your Personal Brand
In this engaging and interactive workshop, we’ll start with a few simple exercises to explore and define your brand. We’ll discuss where your brand expresses itself, and how your body language, voice, and tone impact how people see you. We’ll also discuss how to hear and interpret feedback on your brand and incorporate that knowledge to enhance it and develop your career.
How to Bring Creativity Into Your Work
In order to solve some of the government’s biggest challenges, agencies and employees will need to get creative. In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to add creativity back into your work and bring an innovative approach to thinking back to your organization.
Sound appealing? How about these two examples of breakout sessions from the second day:
Up Your EQ: Emotional Intelligence
In this session, we will explore the neurological and behavioral sciences underpinning empathy, and its vital role in effective government leadership, as well as provide practical tools to enhance individual and collective empathy across differences in your workplace.
How to Create Influence
Being an influencer and fostering engagement for a project is often one of the most difficult jobs when you want to lead but technically don’t have the authority. In this interactive session, we’ll share the best ways to motivate and inspire your peers in an effective and efficient way.
You can expect all this and more at the NextGen Summit, which is the place to be for government employees. Come join us and your peers in Washington, D.C., for an unparalleled professional development experience.
