Course Detail: ELS - Executive Leadership Seminar - Public Service Leadership: Creating a Culture for High Performance

Facilitated by faculty from the nation's #1 program in local government management and professional development experts from KU's Public Management Center, this week-long seminar is a premier leadership opportunity for executive-level managers to explore leadership strategies to create a culture that inspires and enables employees to excel.

In this intensive week-long seminar, individuals will examine the factors that contribute to high performance in organizations, explore how performance happens in an organization; and explore the various principles of public leadership that most effectively guide organizational culture and performance. The seminar format will blend material presentation, opportunity for introspection around individual beliefs and characteristics, and group discussion to explore the latest thinking in public sector and adaptive leadership. Ultimately, the seminar is designed to train and empower public administrators to enliven the Athenian oath in their organization and community.

The course is primarily designed as a for-credit class for MPA students with full-time internship or work experience. However, we also invite the participation of local government and nonprofit managers and administrators for continuing education, non-credit, purposes; combining students and practitioners can enhance the learning of all.

Note: So that students get the most value from this seminar, it is strongly recommended that non-credit seeking students read recommended materials prior to the workshop and consider the associated questions. Detailed information about this pre-work will be sent in follow up communication no later than November 1.
