The Public Management Academy (also known as the Regional Management Academy) is a thought-provoking and challenging program which develops an esprit de corps among graduates and creates a critical mass of public leaders who look more deeply at their responsibilities from an organization-wide perspective. The academy is built on 18 competencies found to be critical for leaders to succeed in public organizations. It features robust learning modules, assessment instruments, application exercises, expert faculty, and participant project teams.
A sample of the topics include:
- Strategic Thinking and Strategic Agility
- Power and Politics
- High Performance Teams
- Constructive Conflict
- Effective Presentations
- Managing a Multi-Generational Workforce
Pre-Work: Participants complete a 360 Competency Instrument (together with their supervisor, peers, and direct reports) prior to the Academy, to assess the participant’s current levels of performance on the 18 competencies around which this program is built.
