FED Talks: The 2016 Key Executive Leadership Programs Speaker Series

Key Executive Leadership Speaker Series

To engage our current students, alumni, and colleagues, we are proud to present the 2016 Key Executive Leadership Programs Speaker Series "FED Talks." This series offers six sessions in the calendar year, and is a complimentary service to the federal community. 

2016 Scheduled Speakers: FED Talks

Tuesday, October 18, 2016
5:00 - 6:30 p.m.

Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
1779 Massachusetts Avenue, NW 
Washington, DC 20039

Speaker: Bill Valdez, President, Senior Executives Association

Title: 21st Century Leadership Skills

Leadership practices in the Federal Government are still mired in 19th and 20th Century policies and procedures at a time when 21st Century realities require a nimble and resilient Executive Branch.  The result is an Executive Branch that has difficulty delivering on its missions during times of crisis and explaining to U.S. taxpayers the value that is delivered by the Federal government on a routine basis by dedicated public servants.
