One of the core qualifications for a government executive is “Leading Change”, which is defined as the ability to bring about strategic change (both within and outside the organization) to meet organizational goals. Six years ago, I completed my second year as a front-line supervisor in our Human Resources organization. I previously served a year as supervisor for HR Reps—an area where I was grown and raised for ten years. But my second year was different. There, I served as a supervisor for HR Development—leading and guiding an organization of training and organization development specialists.
Upon completion of that year, I received some good feedback from the team.
