EEOC to Hold Executive Leadership Training in Washington Sept. 19-20

Attendees Will Hear From Jones Loflin, Renowned Motivational Speaker and Author

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will hold its Executive Leadership Training Conference (ELC) on Sept. 19-20 at the Washington Renaissance Hotel in Washington, the federal agency announced today.

This year's ELC theme is: Leadership Through Times of Transition: Flexibility Meets Precision.  Leaders who are flexible and able to adapt to change are successful during any presidential transition process and change of administration. The ELC training provides participants with skills to successfully navigate change and prepare for the new incoming presidential administration in January 2017. Registration and exhibitor information is available online.

The ELC meets the professional development needs of senior leaders in the field of equal employment opportunity (EEO) and diversity and inclusion (D&I). Training will address key leadership competencies during times of transition; personal development and critically important topics vital to the success of current and future executives - particularly senior EEO officials for federal, state and local governments; private sector EEO executives; HR executives with responsibility for managing and implementing an EEO program; as well as those striving to attain senior-level positions.

"ELC is a cost-effective and modest investment in the executive leadership skills necessary to run a successful EEO program," said Carlton M. Hadden, director of EEOC's Office of Federal Operations. "This training will directly address core leadership competencies, ensuring that EEO professionals have the executive training necessary to meet the challenges of our profession."

The ELC will feature remarks from leadership experts such as renowned motivational speaker and author Jones Loflin. According to his website, "Jones Loflin has made it his life's work to deliver powerful ideas and practical solutions to individuals around the world so they can achieve more of what is most important to them."

Loflin's website continues, "Jones' 3P Approach of 'Powerful Ideas connected to Practical Solutions delivered with a Personal Approach' has attracted the attention of organizations around the world. His client list includes Federal Express, Walmart, Choice Hotels, Volkswagen, Bridgestone, Saudi Aramco and State Farm as well as the United States Navy and Air Force.

Other presenters include: Susan Shuback, former budget director, Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), who will discuss strategies for creating a winning budget justification; and Arnold Haiman and Grace Cummings of the organization Working With Congress, who will provide important insights on how to skillfully work with incoming political appointees.
