Theme Overview/Gather Expectations (Needs Analysis) – Full Group

Welcome to a never-the-same-twice workshop experience! We take your challenges and reframe them through the lens of our leadership methodology to offer alternate approaches for achieving results in the government contracting arena.

Session I - “Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way”

Before you can increase your ability to achieve results through effective leadership, it is important to compare and contrast  the challenges faced by leaders in government organizations versus contracting organizations and contracting teams. Together, we’ll analyze the predominant leadership styles used. In government versus contracting organizations today.  We will also explore the key competencies of collaborative leadership in contracting partnerships.

Session II - “Getting Work Done Through Others (You’ve Got to Be Kidding Me!)”

Organizations are really just groups of people trying to get something done. Is there a difference in how government organizations and contractor organizations get work done? We will address how to achieve results through effective leadership by looking at the interpersonal relationships between leaders and others that can be refined or developed for successful collaboration with special attention to the nuanced differences in government and contraction organizations. Knowing that the people through which you need to get results may not all report to you, we will define methods of communication that can support or detract from collaborative efforts within and across organization types and discuss how to create a plan that can increase the success of a collaborative relationships for strategic results in organizations.

LUNCH AND LEARN

AFTERNOON

Session III - “Achieving Results - What you can do differently, starting today”

What does it take to get things done in an organization? We will explore traits that contribute to leadership in government and contracting organizations. We’ll also identify and justify the skills that contribute to achieving results and select the most critical leadership skills needed in today’s world.

Session IV - “Focused Results, Focused People: Strategic Management & Performance Management”

While management activities are not “leadership”, leaders are still required to manage as part of their jobs. In this session, we will delve into the skills needed for effective goal setting in government and contracting organizations based upon the leadership lessons learned so far. Together, we will identify obstacles that impede goal accomplishment across both organization types and examine the processes involved in strategic management and performance management that you have the ability to impact.

Session V - “Welcome to My World: The challenges of effectively leading public organizations”
Together we will examine common challenges faced by leaders including challenges in intra- and inter-agency collaboration.  We will discuss the value and limitations of collaborative leadership that span government and contracting organizations as they apply to the specific challenges you face in your own organizations and identified at the beginning of this workshop.
