Information for Leadership Trainers
Using this Site
GovLeaders.org is a free resource for government managers who wish to cultivate their leadership skills. The site was founded in 2002 by a career public servant who believes passionately that effective leadership is critical to effective government. He makes no money from the site and runs it at his own expense as a service for his fellow public managers.
Trainers who teach leadership to public sector personnel are encouraged to share this site with their students and colleagues.
