Parking Alert: South Road Construction

Partial road barriers have been placed at the intersection of South Road and Country Club Road due to a summer construction project. The School’s parking deck is open and accessible from South Road for the duration of the project by driving between the two barriers and entering the parking gate immediately on the left.

Leadership Principles for Government Professionals

0 upcoming offerings
Notify me when registration is available

Leadership is not about the title, position, or rank.  Leadership is about what you do. How well do you know yourself as a leader?  How do others view you?  What behaviors can you adopt so that your leadership style synchs with what we most admire in our leaders?


This intensive and highly interactive two-day course is based on Kouzes and Posner’s evidence-based leadership model, The Leadership Challenge. A 360 feedback instrument helps you understand how others perceive the frequency of your leadership behaviors.  The leadership framework teaches specific, learnable behaviors that you can adopt to inspire commitment to a shared vision, build collaboration, teamwork and trust, and lead others to accept challenges and embrace change.


The program is taught by Donna Warner, a certified master in The Leadership Challenge, and is priced at $1200 for two days of instruction. The registration fee covers materials, assessments, and two hours of personalized, one-on-one follow up coaching to help apply principles to your individual challenges and situations. 

This course is offered periodically.
