The Impact Center was selected in 2009 to manage the Obama Administration's Presidential Appointee Leadership Program for senior Executive Branch leaders. As an ongoing program, we continue to design and deliver programs that help top leaders more effectively serve the American people.
Empowering Federal Government Leaders
A great country requires great leaders. We at the Impact Center understand the challenges that leaders in the Federal Government face in growing both your organizational capacity and the individual capacity of yourself and your leaders. Indeed, we understand that change agents and change agencies are developed in concert with each other.
Empower Change Agents and Change Agencies
Your challenges and priorities are particular to you, your agency, and the unique competencies of your team.
With this in mind, we partner with top leaders in Federal Agencies to design and run a customized leadership development program that aligns individual development requirements with your-specific priorities and training. Your tailored program can focus on any of the following:
• Change Management
• Performance Improvement
• Driving Innovation
• Managing People
• Strategic Communications
We can provide executive coaching and mentoring for you and your top leaders along with skill-building sessions, leadership forums and cross-culture dialogues for your non-career and career leaders.
Our Experience working with Federal Leaders
A non-profit, non-partisan leadership development organization, the Impact Center brings distinctive expertise to bear on your challenges. In addition to our work with appointed leaders across the Administration, the Impact Center has been engaged to design and facilitate leadership programs for leaders such as the Secretary of Transportation and non-career appointees of the Department of Transportation as well as the Administrator and executive team of the U.S. Small Business Administration
Our unique approach provides several critical outcomes for you and your team:
Skilled, Knowledgeable Leaders. Mentored, equipped with relevant skills, and given knowledge of federal government systems and culture, your leaders will emerge from this program with significantly increased leadership and management capacity. They will infuse your team with a culture of management and leadership effectiveness as a result.
Increased Organizational Capacity. By building dynamic leaders in an agency-specific setting, this program will grow the capacity of your agency as a whole even as it grows the capacity of your leaders as individuals. Skill and knowledge sets for addressing your particular challenges and advancing your particular priorities will be broadly held by leaders throughout your agency.
United Non-Career and Career Leaders. By virtue of training and learning side-by-side-as well as by virtue of deliberate dialogue and training on each other's cultures and imperatives-your non-career and career leaders will develop important rapport and mutual understanding. Their increased collegiality and teamwork will enable you to better leverage the full breadth and depth of your team's experience and talents.
Commonly Held Vision and Priorities. The tailored nature of every aspect of this program will enable you to continually communicate your agency's strategic vision and priorities to all your leaders. Over time, those ideas will take hold and position your leaders to guide your agency in the right direction.
