​The Leadership Excellence and Development (LEAD) program at College of DuPage is offering the "Engaging Employees" series starting this fall on Thursdays, Oct. 12 to Nov. 9, on the College's Glen Ellyn campus, 425 Fawell Blvd.

The LEAD program is part of the new Public Service Institute, created to develop partnerships with local government entities and employees in order to identify challenges and provide comprehensive training and professional development for their ongoing success.

"Engaging Employees," the first series offered by the LEAD program, provides tools and resources to improve workforce commitment and develop a culture of inclusion and collaboration. Participants will gain a deeper appreciation of local government, share promising practices, improve their performance, and develop the core skills needed to address change in the public sector. Sessions cover topics such as behavioral styles in the workplace, effective communication skills, employee engagement, managing priorities and time, and the state of today's local government.

Sessions will be offered in the fall and the spring. Upon completion of all sessions, participants will receive an award of completion.

Participants must register for the fall series by Friday, Oct. 6. Sessions are held from 8 to 11 a.m. or 1 to 4 p.m. Registration is $475 per person. Refreshments will be provided. To register, call Continuing Education at (630) 942-2208, email or register online.
