Leadership Academy for Government Employees Subject of “MTSU On the Record”
(MURFREESBORO) – What are the qualities of good leadership, and how can local, state and federal governments, as well as private sector concerns, recruit and train better leaders? ). In five sessions from January through May of this year, selected Rutherford County government employees worked at improving their skills with guidance from MTSU personnel.
Carefully selected workers participated in a leadership academy sponsored by MTSU’s Center for Organizational and Human Resource Effectiveness (COHRE). They focused on such goals as self-assessment and self-development, communication, delegating, motivating people and situational leadership.
To find out how this unique model saves tax dollars and helps career public servants improve their skills, join host Gina Logue for “MTSU On the Record,” a 30-minute public affairs radio program on WMOT-FM (89.5 or www.wmot.org), this Sunday, July 13, at 7 a.m. Her guests will be Alanna Sullivan, Rutherford County human resources generalist, and Dr. Michael Hein, psychology professor.
