Summary

Explains the four dimensions of effective leadership for leaders in the public sphere

There is a wealth of advice available for corporate leaders, but little in the way of leadership guidance for those in government agencies. Leading Forward fills that gap by providing a development framework and assessment tool based on the four dimensions of effective leadership—empowerment, fairness, leaders, and supervisors. These four dimensions are critical competencies that leaders must develop in order to succeed now and in the future. Based on years of working with agency leaders at all levels of government and the latest assessment data from the Office of Personnel Management, this practical resource includes a review of the current core leadership competencies and a detailed look at the gaps between actual and expected execution.

  • Offers unique and uncommon leadership guidance for those in the public sector
  • Includes examples, exercises, techniques, and case studies, as well as interviews with past and current leaders
  • Ideal for government agency executives and students in leadership and professional development programs

Leading effectively in a government agency is different than leading in the private sphere. Leading Forward offers a practical and effective framework for developing great leaders for the public good.
