The FEMA Leader Development Program introduced the Pinnacle Series for GS-15s with Communications and Organizational Ideas, a two-day course featuring author and trainer Steven Gaffney. The sold-out course introduced participants to the strategies needed to increase proficiency in communications –related competencies. Participants were introduced to the art of honest communications and strategies they can immediately implement to improve their personal communication styles.
The course is the first in a series of activities and courses that are being offered as part of a continuum of leader development activities for all levels within the agency. FEMA offers a variety of leader development activities, courses and programs for leaders at all levels within the agency. Each is designed to achieve proficiency in leader competencies.
