Political landscapes will always impact and shape the role of public servants and public finance professionals. Effective leaders should understand how external entities and the public impact their performance and organizational outcomes.
In this course, we explore the skills required to skillfully navigate our changing political environments, build supportive networks and coalitions, and communicate the goals and needs of their teams with elected officials and decision makers. Modules focus on enhancing communication skills, building a personal leadership foundation, managing conflict, and influencing outcomes through the appropriate use of power and decision-making.
