Leadership Development Series Events

The Office of Learning and Workforce Development (OLWD) sponsors these monthly events to provide opportunities for continuing leadership development. These events are hosted at the headquarters office and broadcasted by request to executives at field offices.

The program manager identifies and coordinates speakers. Presenters are nationally known authors or professional speakers on subjects directly related to leadership, executive development or managing organizations. If the speaker is an author, a limited number of books are purchased for distribution at the presentation.


DOE Executives and senior leaders have the opportunity to learn current management strategies for optimizing organization and employee performance. The continuing education for DOE leaders may give them ideas for improving their effectiveness and performance.


During the past three years, this program has grown and is presented to an average interagency audience of 425 executives, managers and employees aspiring to leadership positions. The OLWD collaborates with area federal agencies and is co-hosting selected events.
