Passionate about Improving Government?
Are you In Love with your Government Career?
You Should be! The Next Generation of Government Training Summit is your answer – it educates, inspires and promotes innovation for new and rising leaders in government. Since 2010, the two day summit has enhanced the working and personal lives of 1,500+ Generation X and Y government employees excited to learn new skills needed to innovate.
Gen X & Y leaders learn and implement new skills far different than traditional methods. With NextGen, the newer generations in government can grasp the message and skills that are delivered via workshops, interactive sessions, office hours with leaders, and immediately begin executing these traits in the office.
The two day’s of NextGen provide attendee’s with a breadth of knowledge, many immediately implementable tips, and motivation to be a diligent government colleague. To get similar training would require attending multiple courses that cost thousands of dollars and many days out of the office. NextGen is a fraction of the cost and is a jam-packed two days full of enjoyable education.
Who Should Attend NextGen?
You! You’ve read this far, you know you’re interested! NextGen is comprised of new and/or growing Generation X and Y leaders in government. There are specific sessions for everyone, from the greener newbies in government to those who have moved up the ranks and seeking their next step. If you’re in government, wanting to innovate and willing to make change happen – NextGen is the place to be!
Does this Relate to the Training I Need?
Yes! NextGen is 100% focused on building and growing government leaders. Every training session is mapped to the OPM Senior Executive Service, Executive Core Qualifications (Leading Change, Leading People, Results Driven, Business Acumen, Building Coalitions) and the underlying fundamental core competencies. Also, you may be able to draw additional connections between these competencies and your individual development plan (IDP), if you have one. Demonstrating to your agency how NextGen will help you meet some of the targeted skills or development training as identified on your IDP can be a valuable justification.
Also, you’ll earn 13 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits in personal development for attending both days of NextGen.
