Extraordinary Leadership



Federal managers are constantly honing their leadership skills. As a leader, how can you build leadership skills that generate success for you, your teams, and your organization?

You can elevate your position as a good manager to that of an extraordinary leader by focusing on your strengths rather than weaknesses, and by developing these strengths in combinations.

In this course, you’ll gain competency in multiple areas, accelerating your leadership performance beyond incremental improvements in a weakness. You’ll also gain insights into your own leadership style and abilities through two leadership assessments: StrengthsFinder 34 and the Hogan Development Survey.
