The Myth of “Amazing Managers”

A couple weeks ago, I shared a blog post promoting a free online training hosted by GovLoop and Young Government Leaders (YGL) entitled “Top 3 Secrets to Being an Amazing Manager.”

It turns out that “there are no secrets,” according to our presenter Tom Fox, the Vice President for Leadership and Innovation at the Partnership for Public Service and Federal Coach columnist for the Washington Post. In his presentation, Tom revealed the results of the Partnership’s research on top-notch Federal managers in government and it turns out that most of their best attributes are not novel…but not necessarily that common either:

Here are the slides if you want to flip through those quickly:

If you attended the workshop (or watched the presentation archive above), I’d encourage you to print the certificate of completion and add it to your file (or hang it on your wall!).

Anything that stands out to you from the training?

Any questions that arise that we can pitch to Mr. Fox?

Fascinating how the “manager attributes” are essentially “leader attributes” as portrayed in the popular business press. Peter Drucker was so ahead of his time.
