The Public Sector Consortium has created a system of learning specifically tailored for public sector leaders. The Formal Learning Programs delivered on-site can be combined and reconfigured in length and sequence to best meet the needs of your employees and are part of an overall system of learning that includes the following Specialized Services:

Onsite Consulting

The Public Sector Consortium is happy to offer organizations multiple approaches to introducing essential leadership practices into their work setting. We work with leaders and human resource specialists to design tailored programs and retreats. Teams come together to address workplace challenges and learn new leadership tools and competencies at the same time. This direct application approach can be one of the most successful ways to integrate Systems Thinking, Facilitative Leadership, After Action Reviews and other skills into the workforce.

Coaching Services

The Public Sector Consortium believes that leadership capacity has to be developed at all organizational levels in order for the public sector to really thrive. To this end, the program Leadership Coaching for Peers… Building a Culture of Leadership was created to teach ongoing leadership practices and capability throughout an organization. Groups that do this shift the organizational paradigm from reactive to anticipatory, which is far more dynamic and productive.Click here to learn more about this innovative program.

Research Projects

Currently the Public Sector Consortium is investigating the skills necessary for effective leadership transitions within the government arena. The transition skills required for both the political Senior Executive appointees and the career Senior Executive Service are critical to the management of the short and long-term goals of our public institutions. These skills are particularly critical after elections and are also part of an ongoing process of leadership transitions that occur routinely throughout a leader’s career.

The “Sustainable Leadership Practices” project digs deeper into the core competencies and shared vocabulary essential to sustainable leadership. Public sector leaders must serve their organizational missions as well as the larger mission we all share: preserving global resources (human, natural and economic) for future generations. This will require a redefinition of how we measure successful leaders, the application of interdisciplinary skills and behaviors, and the willingness of leaders to expand their sphere of influence beyond the home agency or geographic boundaries. The outcome of this initiative will be a descriptive model of these crucial sustainable leadership practices in addition to a credible series of learning opportunities to acquire the necessary skills.
