Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast: How to Build Innovation Value into Your Organization
July 19, 2018 - 12:00 to 1:00 PM

Presenter: Debra L. Schweikert


Typically, government has not been known for innovative practices—but does it have to be that way? The answer is a resounding “NO!” However, you need to put innovation into your culture, not just have it as a strategic goal. This webinar talks about innovation—what it is (which may not be what you think!), how to get it embraced by senior management and your team, tips to instill innovation in your office culture, how you can learn from mistakes (since not innovative ideas work—and that is OK), and what you can do as you lead people to make innovation a prized quality in your team.

 

Deb Schweikert started out her career after obtaining her Master’s degree in counseling psychology by working for The Ohio State University for six years, eventually serving as Director of Financial Aid Counseling. She then moved to United Student Aid Funds in Indianapolis, Indiana, where she headed up their compliance review unit. Continuing in the student loan arena, she worked for Sallie Mae prior to becoming the Deputy Director of the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance, which managed all the state scholarship and loan programs for Louisiana students. 


She then joined the U.S. Department of Education in 1992, first serving as the Deputy Director of the Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance, a congressionally-mandated committee supported by the Department of Education. She was then recruited by the Student Financial Aid Division to be the Policy Director for the Direct Loan Task Force. In 2011, she became the Assistant Inspector General for Management at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation where she works today. Deb is responsible for the Inspector General’s budget, procurement, training, records management, facilities, and personnel operations.
