The Management Academy is a professional education opportunity for mid-level managers to enhance their knowledge and skills in competencies related to how we manage ourselves, our work, and the people we are entrusted to lead. It is a key element in the State's commitment to ensure the citizens of Nevada that its government has a strong cadre of professional managers today and staff ready to transition into leadership and senior management positions whenever those vacancies occur. The Academy will also begin to develop a consensus around the expectations and role of managers in State government.
For our colleagues new to management, the Academy provides an introduction to practical skills and relevant knowledge, tools and techniques for directing staff and work. For our more experienced managers, the Academy will serve as a thoughtful refresher.
