Webinar: Surviving and Thriving with the President’s Political Appointees
How in the World do I make it as a senior-level employee in the federal government?? With everything that’s going on under the new Administration now, it just seems impossible! Join Brian, a fictitious character who takes us through the webinar highlights of Frank McDonough’s book titled: Spring Training for the Major Leagues of Government. This webinar is designed to offer an insider's look on surviving and thriving in Senior U.S. Government Jobs. As Brian asks questions and thinks about challenges, Frank provides answers and supports them with insights, references, anecdotes, and advice. The webinar provides a taste of what it is like for those who want to become senior officials, and for those who want to know how the government works just below the rarefied cocoon level where heads of agencies dwell.

2017 FEIAA Executive Forum
The theme of the 2017 Executive Forum is “Leadership: Being a Positive Force for Change.” The Forum is Tuesday, May 16 at The Marvin Center on the campus of The George Washington University. Following the arrival of President Trump’s Administration in January 2017, all of us are looking for ways to more fully engage with the new leadership in our departments and agencies. We, as government executives, senior leaders, managers, and supervisors, are embracing challenges in leading organizations and teams facing different ways of doing business. To help address these challenges, FEIAA has assembled a set of outstanding presenters for this year’s Executive Forum. The topics are: unleashing the magic of kindness; calling upon your GRIT (guts, resilience, initiative, and tenacity); asking the right questions; and leading with your strengths. These sessions are designed to provide tools, techniques, and approaches that you can use in both your personal and professional lives to be a positive force for change.
