Center for Florida Local Governmanet ExcellenceThe FCCMA Onsite Training Session Program has been one of the most successful methods of training provided by CFLGE. Past and Current FCCMA Presidents have been particularly interested in the success of this program and have advocated for localized training in government facilities.

The purpose of the Onsite Training Session Program is threefold: reduce travel training costs for local government participants, eliminate training facility overhead costs, and provide a forum for local government administrators and staff to obtain hands-on training on current and pending local government issues. Even though the purpose of these trainings is to reduce travel these trainings are open to everyone across the state.

All onsite training sessions are either a half-day session or full-day session with lunch included for both. For more information, please contact: Carol Russell (crussell@flcities.com) from FCCMA.

Mindfulness isn’t a common practice in local government, yet the lack of it is emphasized by the issues caused by the current hurry up, do it faster and cheaper model, even at the cost of civility in the workplace. Mindful leadership emphasizes so many things that matter for good leadership such as “see the big picture.” “think systematically,” “pause and consider the longer term consequences” and “don’t overreact.” Do we always pay that much attention? A recent Harvard study revealed that mindful leaders are more effective, get better results and are more respected by their employees. When leaders actively engage in mindfulness practices, the “psychological capital” of an organization rises. This is a wonderful opportunity for managers and key staff members to attend an FCCMA program together and reflect on their own leadership style and the culture they are helping to established within their organization.
