Seminars are brief ways to refresh leadership skills

The Olympian - Olympia, WA, USA - Through the years, the state of Washington has, in my estimation, always strived to keep employees up to date with new work practices as they surfaced across the nation.

The Department of Personnel has specifically designed curricula and programs that provide managers with top notch training to keep them up to date with the knowledge generated in the public sector. For those of you who have been around state government for a while, you will probably remember or might even be a former Career Executive Program participant.

After that, came something called the Help Academy, which brought the legal perspective into management training. In this fast-paced world, however, it is often difficult for employees to carve out time for several days of training.

Many state employees might not know that there is an alternate way to keep current on the latest management trends and best practices. The Office of the Governor and the Department of Personnel have partnered to bring speakers to Washington who are recognized nationally for their management techniques. The sessions are brief, usually three to four hours and jam-packed with information. The sessions have been designed to bring dynamic speakers to discuss today’s most relevant topics and provide the participants with practical material that can be used back on the job.

The next speaker coming to Washington is Mark Sanborn, and he will be speaking at The Washington Center for the Performing Arts. Sanborn is an author of seven books and a co-author of five books as well as an internationally recognized speaker on leadership, teamwork, customer service and change. His latest book is “You Don’t Need a Title to be a Leader.” Sanborn’s presentation will focus on why leaders fail. He will provide six warning signs to possible failure that will help managers to steer away from impending disaster.

Following Sanborn’s presentation, there are two other leadership speakers scheduled. On Sept. 19, Beverly Kay will speak on recognizing and retaining employees. Kay is a recognized author and speaker on employee recognition. Then on Jan. 8, Patrick Lencioni will speak to Washington employees on leadership. You may recognize Lencioni’s name from his best- selling book “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.”

State employees can sign up for the courses through their agency’s training manager or human resource office in the same manner that they normally register for training through the Department of Personnel. The cost for each session is $75, and usually includes the author’s latest book. If you need more information about the 2007 Leadership Speaker Series.

These sessions fill up quickly, so be sure to register early. Registration for Sanborn’s presentation is open through June 20, although it might be filled well before that date.
