Building Successful Government
Government Culture — Our government organizations face political fallout, media scrutiny, reduced funding, and the many challenges involved in motivating large, multi-layered and highly regulated organizations. It’s no surprise that many government organizations report that their employees are less engaged than ever and that leaders feel helpless to change the situation. In many cases, employees and government leaders are caught in a vicious cycle. Performance declines, scrutiny increases, and employee paralysis ensues.
How do you break this cycle and begin building successful government? You change the mindset from “leaders are a select few in the organization” to “everyone can and should be a leader.” This simple shift is key to building successful government organizations in the 21st century.
