Advanced Supervision for the Government Professional

ASGP Endorsements Page Overview

The next generation of successful government supervisors will be individuals who can embrace and implement transformation and build cross-functional interagency relationships. Leadership for the Government Supervisor challenges senior-level supervisors to supervise across generations, collaboratively solve problems, resolve conflict, foster a service culture mindset, and motivate individuals to engage in organizational change efforts. The program also addresses their role in key challenges such as workforce development and succession planning.

Audience

Leadership for the Government Supervisor is a certificate program for senior-level supervisors in city, county, state and federal goverment with responsibility for staff, programs, and projects. Participants represent the business and program branches of agencies or departments as well as the information technology programs.

Delivery Model

Leadership for the Government Supervisor is a forward-thinking departure from traditional “day in a desk” training. Using individual development plans, group discussions, expert speakers, case studies, and participant-submitted projects, the classroom becomes an experiential laboratory in which senior-level supervisors address real world problems with realistic solutions. Leadership for the Government Supervisor consists of eight required courses for a total of 56 hours of instruction and 5.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Evaluation

Upon acceptance to Leadership for the Government Supervisor, participants are required to complete the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), which is based on The Leadership Challenge authored by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. Throughout the program, participants are evaluated through class discussions, experientail exercises and an individual project. Participants are expected to complete a project and report the findings at the end of the program. Approximately six months after completion of Leadership for the Government Supervisor, participants are invited to participate in a post-training assessment process by completing a follow-up Leadership Practices Inventory and an online self-assessment to measure the effectiveness of the program.
