Leadership for Public Service Professionals

September 19-23, 2016
Lodge at Ventana Canyon in Tucson, Arizona


The Southwest Leadership Program addresses many of the complexities, challenges, and rewards of leadership as a public servant.

This five-day program helps you to develop your leadership arsenal, establish professional networks with colleagues in the Southwestern region, and rejuvenate your leadership energies.

The program consists of a combination of classroom instruction, guest lectures, group discussions, case studies, and self-directed learning. Hands-on experience applying newly learned skills provides reinforcement of learning concepts and develops competencies beyond typical learning.

Participants earn a Certificate in Management and Organizations from the University of Arizona and return to their public sectors with new skills and insights on a broad range of topics, enabling them to lead more effectively right away.

Begin by learning who should attend, and feel free to contact me with any questions.
