What is NextGen PLUS?
NextGen+ is an extension of the OPM approved Next Generation of Government Training Summit that takes place every July. This added half-day training provides sessions that are jam packed with information focused on educating, inspiring and training emerging government leaders to further enhance their day-to-day career and the betterment of government overall.
Take advantage of the additional NextGen training, keep the knowledge flowing, and touch base with even more Gen X and Y'ers in government.
We've based the training sessions off of the successful topics we've seen help diligent government professionals during The Next Generation of Government Training Summit. Of which, we reached out to hundreds of senior leaders on what skills rising leaders needed to develop to discover these much needed training topics and sessions.
Who is Behind NextGen?
Young Government Leaders, a professional organization of men and women employed by or for the government who are “young” in their service and/or “fresh” in their perspective, and GovLoop, an online knowledge network for government employees. Together, YGL and GovLoop have taken NextGen to new heights year after year. NextGen+ DC is no exception.
Who Should Attend?
The core composition of NextGen+ is comprised of new and/or growing Generation X and Y leaders in government. If you feel lost in the trenches, need to learn the ropes of government, learn and enhance new skills, elevate your leadership knowledge or simply need to shake a negative habit, NextGen+ is the place for you. There are specific sessions for everyone, from the greener newbies in government to those who have moved up the ranks and feel stagnant or unsure of their next step.
Does this Relate to Training I Need?
YES! NextGen is 100% focused on building and growing government leaders. We have mapped each NextGen+ training session to the OPM Senior Executive Service Executive Core Qualifications (Leading Change, Leading People, Results Driven, Business Acumen, Building Coalitions) and the underlying fundamental core competencies. Also, you may be able to draw additional connections between these competencies and your Individual Development Plan (IDP), if you have one. Demonstrating to your agency how NextGen and NextGen+ will help you meet some of the targeted skills or development training as identified on your IDP can be a valuable justification.
