About 'The Federal Coach'
Are you a seasoned federal government manager trying to bring excellence to your workplace? A contractor trying to navigate an unfamiliar bureaucracy? An aspiring leader who wants to change the world through federal government service?
The nonprofit Partnership for Public Service and the Washington Post's On Leadership site welcome you to our three-times-a-week feature, The Federal Coach, hosted by Tom Fox, director of the Partnership's Center for Government Leadership.
Our goal is to engage, inspire and learn from you, the federal worker, whether you are a new hire, a contractor or a manager at the highest departmental level. Because the public sector has unique -- if sometimes frustrating! -- leadership challenges, we believe our content here will also be relevant to anyone seeking to become a better leader.
Here's what you can expect:
On Mondays we'll bring you "Getting Ahead," a short, motivational column from Tom with actionable advice on "leading up," overcoming obstacles and breaking through bureaucracy.
On Wednesdays Tom will bring you the "View from the Top Floor," in which he interviews leaders in the federal space, people who are innovating and bringing federal performance to a new level.
Fridays, Tom will respond to your questions. Do you have a difficult boss? A need to motivate your team? Pressures from above? You can write in anonymously to The Federal Coach's dedicated email address or simply leave your question in the comments section. And of course we hope you'll add your advice to the questions at hand. Send us your suggestions of who Tom should talk to, or be in touch with other suggestions via email.
We envision The Federal Coach as a water cooler and a classroom, a place to vent frustrations, learn something new and find inspiration for the work ahead. We look forward to hearing from you.
