For more information please visit: www.gwu.edu/cepl George Washington University's Center for Excellence in Public Leadership offers Enterprise Risk Management and Leadership Development programs designed to benefit public sector leaders and their organizations at all levels of government. CEPL's Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Certification is designed to provide public sector leaders with the knowledge and skill set to develop an ERM approach to handling strategic and operational risks throughout their organization. The certification introduces participants to the fundamental concepts, principles, and tools of ERM and also provides an environment to develop a draft risk profile for their area of responsibility and/or their organization as a whole. In addition, CEPL's Leadership Embodiment Coaching Program uses a holistic model of development and change – one that encompasses and accounts for the context in which public sector leaders live while simultaneously acknowledging their individual journeys in life.

Mission: The Center for Excellence in Public Leadership develops public leaders who make a positive difference in their organizations and for the people they serve.

Do you have a dreaming practice yet? Here are some ideas from our faculty Bonnie Buckner Ph.D.

Did you know that dreaming is a response to our waking active experience? Engaging in a practice of dreaming brings us into relationship with our powerful spontaneous imagination, waking us up to creative aspects of the self. Once we begin to understand how to work with our dreams they show us where we are, where we want to go, what’s holding us back, and how to jump over our blocks.

Here’s a short tip that Bonnie Buckner Ph.D. suggests for remembering your dreams:

Go out and find a journal that you really like - something you enjoy to look at, that you feel excited about. Turn to the first blank page and at the top write the day’s date and then “Tonight I will have a clear dream and remember.” Put your pen on the page and go to sleep, ready to write anything that you remember when you wake up. Write everything - no editing! - whether its an image, a sentence, a snippet or what you feel is a “full dream”. See what happens!

Bonnie will be teaching more dreaming tools for the eCo Leadership Coaching Program - you’ll discover how looking inside helps us to develop important capacities like creativity, intuition, and spaciousness, helping us to develop our inner selves in order to be better coaches for others.

Until then… happy dreaming!

With the onset of the pandemic, the imperative for preparing women to advance in leadership positions has never been greater. "The New York Times" feature story (May 15) "Why Are Women-Led Nations Doing Better With Covid-19?" explores lessons from the current crisis.

The urgency of preparing women to lead is why we redesigned GWU-CEPL's Executive Women's Leadership Program to make it available ONLINE June 24-26th. Ina Gjikondi Leslie Grossman Britt Nwadiashi Lutricia Jackson Natalie Houghtby-Haddon
