Judges are often asked to lead projects that will improve the justice system. Learning about project management, leadership, human resources, and other business- or organization-based principles will help you succeed in these projects. This course provides leader judges with the answers to many court-related questions in a workshop setting where you can practice some of the techniques learned with beneficial feedback from your judicial colleagues and the experienced faculty members.
This workshop will answer the following questions:
- How do leadership and management relate?
- Will principles that work in military and business settings really work in the justice sector?
- How can I motivate people when they won’t receive any pay, raises, gifts, etc., for all of this extra work?
- I keep hearing about “mindful leadership.” Is there really any benefit to “mindful leadership” or is this just some kind of passing fad?
- When I find a better way to do things, why is it so hard to get others to change?
This course qualifies for The National Judicial College Certificate in Judicial Development program Administrative Law Adjudication Skills, Appellate Judicial Skills, General Jurisdiction Trial Skills, Special Court Trial Skills and Tribal Judicial Skills disciplines.
