Seminar “Performance Assessment: Skills for Leadership” 19-20 September 2016, European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA)

EIPATarget group

Middle and higher management of public administrations, at the national, regional and local level.

Description

It is very important for managers to be aware of the most recent developments in different topics of public administration, and what this means for their personal function within the organisation. Leadership is very important for motivating staff of a public administration. Changes within governments, other objectives and goals, requires leaders who can take their staff with them in other directions, based on an outcome of democratic developments. In particular, working in a political environment demands special qualities of leaders in public administration. This seminar aims to demonstrate this, as well as providing the relevant tools to deal with those situations.

The seminar aims to be as paperless as possible. During the seminar you will be able to access all seminar materials, including the presentations, using a tablet. At the end of the seminar you will also receive a login and password to download all seminar materials.

Learning methodology

The seminar will include theory in the form of interactive presentations and exercises. There will be an emphasis on ‘learning by doing’.

Objectives

The goal of this seminar is to give participants an insight into the developments in the functioning of public administration and to bring some skills into practice. The experience from these two days can be taken home to their own organisational surroundings. Participants will be able to recognise situations earlier and to act more adequately.

EIPA members’ fee: €900
