Leadership Training Courses

Leading isn’t the same thing as supervising. FELTG’s Leadership and Team Effectiveness courses focus on leadership development to empower your agency’s employees to generate results and help fulfill your organization’s mission. All of FELTG’s Leadership and Team Effectiveness courses – and several of our Supervisory Training Courses – align with the Office of Personnel Management’s Executive Core Qualifications. The ECQs are required for entry to the Senior Executive Service and are used by many departments and agencies in selection, performance management, and leadership development for management and executive positions.

If you only have one day to stock up your leadership toolkit, this is it. Equip yourself with the knowledge, skills, behaviors, and confidence you need to lead with excellence. This training is for individuals of all levels but can be targeted to specific groups. Dr. Anthony Marchese will share research-inspired best practices and a practice-driven approach to increasing leadership effectiveness.

LD-2: Effectively Managing and Communicating With Employees (1-2 days)

This course is built upon the premise that a one-size-fits-all approach to managing others is ineffective. Drawing upon the latest research and best practices in behavioral science, communication, team effectiveness, and generational studies, Effectively Managing and Communicating with Employees provides federal supervisors with relevant insight and practical strategies to ensure that they are managing for success. Using realistic agency scenarios, participants will learn how to understand and leverage individual differences to develop a meaningful management methodology that is targeted to the needs of their employees and those of the agency.

Course Topics: Managing vs. leading; identifying and honing your supervisory skills; managing difficult employee personality types; managing a multigenerational workforce; managing a mobile workforce; using structured communication with your employees; conflict resolution skills; utilizing a team-based approach in the federal government.


LD-3: Mentoring Matters (1 day)

The Office of Personnel Management has been a champion of mentoring programs across the government because it sees mentors as instrumental in maximizing learning and development and improving employee retention. We here at FELTG agree. This one-day seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of mentoring, include guidance for improving the mentoring program at your agency, and show you how to utilize mentorship skills in leadership roles.

Course Topics: What mentoring is and what it isn’t; make sense of mentoring myths, understanding and leveraging generational differences; assessing different types of mentoring; exploring mentoring best practices; developing and implementing a mentoring program at your agency.

Course Topics: Ingredients of influence; how to persuade through spoken, written, and non-verbal communication and hands-on experience; delivering a variety of messages to peers within a safe, accepting, and supportive learning environment.


LD-5: The Leader’s Edge: Emotional Intelligence as a Catalyst for Success (1 day)

What is stopping you and your team from developing innovative solutions to your most challenging problems? Dr. Anthony Marchese will explain how to leverage diversity, build a solid team, manage conflict and develop the resilience needed to get your team over the hump.

LD-7: Becoming a Learning Organization  (1 day)

Learning organizations are more able to swiftly adapt to changes and make continuous improvements to ensure effectiveness. A strengthened community that shares knowledge will lead to increased productivity. This application-based course will prepare agency leaders to turn their own departments into hubs of learning. Each participant will leave with a detailed plan of action.

Course Topics: Conducting stakeholder analyses; identifying performance gaps; translating findings into programmatic and micro learning; implementing learning strategies and conducting assessments.


LD-8: Leading by Design: Strategies for Career Growth and Development (1 day)

This course is built upon the book DESIGN: An Owner’s Manual for Learning, Living, and Leading with Purpose by Dr. Anthony Marchese. Participants will craft their very own Personal Owner’s Manual as a tool to increase mindfulness and complete a career mission statement and action plan to guide them on the next phase of their journey.

Course Topics:  Organic decision-making; leading self and others according to their strengths; charting a course for continued personal and professional development.


LD-9: Strengths-based Strategies for Success (1 day)

Managers who help employees identify, develop, and strategically apply their strengths create a culture of high employee engagement and performance. According to Gallup, 67% of employees who strongly agree that their manager focuses on their strengths are engaged in their jobs.  And according to OPM, 47% of disengaged millennials will leave their agency for a culture where they feel they better “fit in.” This fun, interactive session will provide a tool for participants to assess their own strengths and plug in to the agency mission. Learners will leave with increased self-awareness, awareness of others, and practical tools to extend and apply their learning.

Course Topics: Encourage a safe environment for empoyees to explore their strengths, identify strategies for embedding strengths into job execution, and introduce learners to the completion of their own Strengths-Based Strategies for Success Development Plan. 


LD-10: Mindset Matters: Making the Transition from Individual Contributor to Supervisor (1 day)

Receiving a promotion is a career highlight. However, if that promotion means you’re now supervising your former co-workers, then it also means you’re about to navigate the trickiest part of your career. This one-day course is perfect those who have been promoted, or hope to be promoted at some point, and will cover the following competencies — leading people, resilience, decisiveness, flexibility.

Course Topics: Assessing existing managerial knowledge, skills, behaviors, and confidence; understanding the art and science behind managing others; differentiating between a general mindset, positional mindset, and job-specific mindset; understanding the traits that directly correlate with the ability to accurately assess performance; create a personal development strategy to transition to supervision. 


LD-11: Leadership Deep Dive (1-2 days)

Take one or two days to submerge yourself into this interactive course led by nationally recognized leadership scholar and trainer Dr. Anthony J. Marchese and you’ll leave with a roadmap for continuously improving your leadership skills. The four areas of content (Leading Self, Leading Others, Leading Teams, Leading the Agency) can be emphasized and focused on the needs of the group in attendance.

MSPB Day

 

Session 1
9:30 – 10:45 am EDT

 

What to Expect When You’re Expecting a New Board
Presented by Deborah J. Hopkins, Attorney at Law, FELTG President

Course Description: Once again, we have a glimmer of hope that a new Board will be nominated and voted into place at the MSPB. What does this mean for federal HR professionals? What does this mean for all those agencies and employees whose cases have been piling up unread at the Board? How will Executive Order 14003 and OPM regulations fit into the picture? How is the Board impacted by the decisions the Federal Circuit has been making in its absence of a quorum? FELTG President Deborah Hopkins will give an overview of what we can expect in the upcoming months from a new MSPB, the challenges awaiting the incoming members, and where the Board might stand on critical issues like performance and conduct accountability under the Biden Administration. Earn 1.25 CLE credits.


Session 2
11:15 am  – 12:30 pm EDT

 

What Do You Do With the Douglas Factors?
Presented by Ann Boehm, Attorney at Law, FELTG Instructor

Course Description: You likely know those 12 factors identified in the landmark 1981 MSPB decision that birthed their name. But do you know how to use them to determine the appropriate penalty? Attorney Ann Boehm will share case law highlighting how agencies correctly use the Douglas factors and, more importantly, how they were misapplied. She will answer all your Douglas questions, such as: Do the factors go in the proposal or the decision? What do OPM’s new regs say about the Douglas factors? In light of the Accountability Act, does the VA still have to do Douglas factors? Attendees will leave this session with the knowledge to avoid the too-common Douglas mistakes. Earn 1.25 CLE credits.


Session 3
1:30 – 2:45 pm EDT 

 

The Roller Coaster Employee: Managing Up-and-Down Performance
Presented by Robert Woods, Attorney at Law, FELTG Instructor

Course Description: You’ve undoubtedly seen it several times, and it’s always frustrating. An employee is put on a performance demonstration period (DP, PIP, ODAP – or whatever your agency calls it) and does well enough to stay in his position. But when the DP ends, his performance dips again. As employees return en masse and attempt to re-adjust to the physical workplace, it’s highly likely that you’ll see some drops in performance  – whether they employees are on a DP or not. Attorney Bob Woods will explain how to effectively and efficiently handle wide swings in performance. Earn 1.25 CLE credits.


Session 4
3:15 pm – 4:30 pm EDT

 

When Employees Go Insubordinate: Don’t Mess With the Wrong Elements
Presented by Deborah J. Hopkins, Attorney at Law, FELTG President; and Marcus Hill, former Senior Executive Advisor/Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, FELTG Instructor

Course Description: If you’ve ever been a supervisor or advised one, then you’ve most likely dealt with an employee who did not do what he was asked, or, possibly, did the exact opposite. That may sound like a good definition of insubordination for Webster’s Dictionary, but it’s not going to work for the MSPB.  Charges of workplace misconduct have specific legal definitions, which include elements. And to prove a charge, you need to prove all of its elements. FELTG President Deborah Hopkins will walk you through the elements of insubordination and the factors that determine how to best deal with employees who disobey, or refuse to follow, management orders. Earn 1.25 CLE credits.

 



Wednesday, April 28, 2021

EEOC Day

 

Session 5
9:30 am – 10:45 am EDT

 

Preventing and Correcting Hostile Work Environment Harassment
Presented by Meghan Droste, Attorney at Law, FELTG Instructor

Course description: Not all hostile work environment cases involve sexual harassment. However, as attorney Meghan Droste will show you, a large majority do. And yet, hostile environment harassment is often alleged based on all of the protected categories –  sex, race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, genetic information, or reprisal. Ms. Droste will define the “nature of the conduct,” as well as the “unwelcome” and the “sufficiently severe or pervasive” requirements. She’ll also discuss agency and supervisor liability, share successful prevention techniques, and the provisions of Executive Order 13985 and 13988 that apply to Federal agencies. Earn 1.25 CLE credits. 1.25


Session 6
11:15 am – 12:30 pm EDT

 

Barking Up the Wrong Tree? Service and Therapy Animals in the Workspace
Presented by Deborah J. Hopkins, Attorney at Law, FELTG President; and Ricky Rowe, Former National EEO Manager/Veterans Affairs, FELTG Instructor

Course description: Pet ownership increased and animal shelters emptied during COVID-enforced lockdowns in 2020. Undoubtedly, remote workers have enjoyed the therapeutic benefits that come with owning a pet. But does that make their new furry friends therapy or emotional support animals? And can no-longer-remote employees bring their new four-legged friends to the workplace? In most cases, the answer is an easy no. But if it’s a reasonable accommodation request, the answer isn’t quite as definitive. The EEOC’s stance that an emotional support animal may be a required reasonable accommodation for a qualified individual with a disability, even if it is not a trained service dog, fails to provide an easy answer. FELTG President Deborah Hopkins will explain the difference between a service animal and a therapy animal, and provide guidance on how to determine if an emotional support animal would be a reasonable accommodation for an individual with a disability. Earn 1.25 CLE credits. 1.25


Session 7
1:30 – 2:45 pm EDT

 

What to Do When Contractors File EEO Complaints
Presented by Robert Woods, Attorney at Law, FELTG Instructor

Course description: A federal contractor may file a formal EEO complaint if the agency is determined to be a “joint employer.” How do you determine if you are a joint employer? That determination begins with the case Ma v. HHS. Attorney Bob Woods will walk you through how to apply the Ma factors to your situation. He’ll also explain the roles and responsibilities of agency personnel when contractors start the EEO process, as well as defenses to the “joint employer” allegation. Earn 1.25 CLE credits. 1.25


Session 8
3:15 – 4:30 pm EDT

 

COVID-19 and EEO: What We’ve Learned and What We Still Need to Know
Presented by Katherine Atkinson, Attorney at Law FELTG Instructor

Course description: The pandemic turned the federal workplace upside down, creating numerous unique situations for supervisors and EEO professionals. Increased vaccinations have eased the burden somewhat, but many EEO challenges remain. Attorney Katherine Atkinson will walk you through some of these remaining challenges, and share the EEO lessons learned from  that past year. Attendees will leave with a basic EEO framework that can be used to address COVID-related issues as well as other challenges long after the virus is eradicated. Earn 1.25 CLE credits. 1.25

Earn 1.25 CLE credits.

 


Session 10
11:15 am – 12:30 pm EDT

 

The Telework Tango: Communication and Feedback for a Remote Workplace
Presented by Anthony Marchese, PhD., Consultant/Author/Trainer, FELTG Instructor

Course description: One of the biggest surprises of the pandemic was how well many Federal employees transitioned to 100% telework. It was so successful that many employees and agencies expect telework opportunities to expand in a post-pandemic world. Anthony Marchese will explain how to tweak and improve your management and communication skills for a remote staff, with specific guidance on providing employee feedback and setting expectations in a virtual world.


Session 11
1:30 – 2:30 pm EDT

 

Addressing Microaggressions and Bias in the Federal Workplace
Presented by Meghan Droste, Attorney at Law, FELTG Instructor

Course description: Microaggressions, whether intentional or not, can be very hurtful to the employees who experience them. Microaggressions and implicit bias can lead to discrimination. FELTG Instructor Meghan Droste, attorney at law, will explain what microaggressions look like it in their various forms, and provide a quick review of EEO law, so you can determine when bias or microaggression might rise to the level of discrimination. Attend the session, learn how to comply with Executive Orders 13985 and 13988, and you’ll be well on your way to providing a safe and inclusive work environment for all employees. Earn 1.25 CLE credits. 1.25

Legal Update: Recent Developments in Federal Employment Law, Part II (FLRA, FSIP)
Presented by Joseph Schimansky, Former Executive Director/FSIP, FELTG Instructor

The Federal Service Impasses Panel has issued several noteworthy decisions, but a new panel is on its way.

Labor-Management Partnerships: What if They Are Back in Vogue?
Presented by Ann Boehm, Attorney at Law, FELTG Instructor

Course description: With a change in Administration often comes a new approach to labor management relations. And with a Democrat in the White House, we’re likely to soon see a push for a more collaborative method. Will it be like the Clinton-era partnerships? Or more like a Obama-era forums? FELTG Instructor Ann Boehm will explain what the new approach will likely look like, and how you and your agency can best prepare. Earn 1.25 CLE credits.

1:30 – 2:45 pm EDT

 

Impact and Implementation Bargaining in the Federal Workplace
Presented by Joseph Schimansky, Former Executive Director/FSIP, FELTG Instructor

Course description: When an agency makes a change, it may trigger an obligation to negotiate. In late 2020, however, the Federal Labor Relations Authority released three precedent-breaking decisions that pushed the reset button on bargaining with unions. The Authority’s decision in U.S. Department of Education, in particular, seriously diluted that management obligation to negotiate. FELTG Instructor Joe Schimansky will explain the standard for triggering a duty to bargain over impact and implementation. Earn 1.25 CLE credits.
