Getting the most out of employees in government offices is one of the legendary challenges. With an emphasis, it seems, on protocols and processes rather than on results, government offices have often been regarded as bastions of mediocrity, havens for substandard performers, and places where rule number one is cover your…self.
In addtion, you’ll discover strategies you can use to help recruit, train, retain, motivate, and reward excellent employees, along with holding them accountable for their department’s successes and failures.
