This course truly establishes a strong foundation for common sense leadership within the public sector.  I promoted to lieutenant within the Tucson Police Department prior to attending this course.  The lesson plans are complete with common sense best-practices that have been proven in both the private and public sectors.

As a supervisor, the information presented in the Foundations of Public Sector Leadership Program was precisely what I've been looking for to help me motivate my employees and build a high-functioning team.  The program provided me with many valuable tools and strategies to incorporate into my "management toolbox".
