Bob Tobias: Is lack of management training causing federal employee engagement to drop?

Bob Tobias, , professor in the Key Executive Leadership Program, American University

Everybody wants accountability from someone else. Congress wants it from federal agencies. Federal managers wants it from employees and vice versa. The public wants it from everybody. But demanding accountability means you've got to equip people with the skills they need to do the job. Could it be a lack of management training is causing federal employee engagement scores to fall for the last five years? Bob Tobias, professor in the Key Executive Leadership Program at American University, has some ideas, which he shares with Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
