Rockville, Md. (November 30, 2017) – The Center for Organizational Excellence, Inc. (COE), a leader in organization transformation, today announced that chief executive officer, Steve Goodrich, will be chairing a panel discussion on government reform at the Senior Executive Association’s (SEA’s) Presidential Awards Leadership Summit on December 7, 2017 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. Fitting into the larger context of SEA’s mission to improve government efficacy by fostering outstanding leadership, the panel will focus on the status of reform efforts and how to ensure OMB reform directives sustainability improve agency performance.

“So often reform discussions jump straight to organizational redesign and workforce reductions, but the effective management at the core of any successful, tangible change is often overlooked,” said Steve Goodrich. “We think this summit is a valuable opportunity to advance our capacity for the type of leadership that drives true transformation.”

Steve has supported the Partnership for Public Service’s mentoring programs for many years, providing coaching and support to aspiring Senior Executive Service (SES) candidates. With the support of SEA, senior government leaders gain access to the resources and development opportunities necessary to successfully promote and implement government efficiency and effectiveness initiatives.

At the Leadership Summit, current and aspiring SES members along with thought leaders from the private and public sectors will come together to strengthen and nurture the community, addressing the most pressing concerns in the Federal space. The event is an unparalleled educational, mentoring, and networking opportunity for anyone interested in leveraging strong management to achieve government excellence.
