Leadership Across the Branches

Leadership Across the Branches

The new Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership on the UW–Madison campus will host a conference called “Leadership Across the Branches” on Friday, November 17th. Here is the description from the Thompson Center. The conference is free, but you must register. The Thompson Center website has the complete schedule of events and a link to register.

As one of its first acts, the Thompson Center will host a conference called “Leadership Across the Branches,” a conference devoted to identifying leadership skills among public officials and disseminating that knowledge. The conference will be a one-day public event in Madison, Wisconsin on Friday, November 17, 2017. It will showcase esteemed individuals from both parties from the judicial, executive, and legislative branches at the federal and state levels. Panelists will discuss an aspect of leadership in their work and offer suggestions on where more leadership and collegiality are needed. Panels will take place throughout the day. One panel will focus on Leadership in Congress; another on Leadership in the State Legislature; another will address Public Leadership From the Media’s Perspective; another on Leadership in the Executive Branch; and one on Leadership and the Courts. After the conference concludes, the Center will synthesize attendee remarks into a publication.

Conference speakers will have much to convey about effective and collegial public leadership practices from which we can all borrow. It promises to be an excellent way for leaders across the branches to speak to one another’s needs as they work together.
