Engagement is definitely a big buzzword these days. How do we get people to do more in an environment where resources are dwindling? More importantly, how do you get beyond the buzzword to reflect on how your role shapes engagement at your agency, regardless of your title?

Taught by Brian Crewe, who brings a perspective from more than 10 years in federal and local government, you will come to find that better engagement begins not at the highest levels of the organization, but within yourself.

The course comprises an overview, one lesson, and a post-course survey.

Learning Objectives

• Understand what it means to manage yourself and how your behavior affects others

• Realize that the Platinum Rule is more important than the Golden Rule when it comes to managing others

• Think about whether or not you really want to be a leader…or an exceptional follower!
