Comprehensive Staff Training
Professional development is vital to the longevity of an office. Congressional salaries are not competitive with the private sector marketplace. Therefore staffers must be challenged and motivated in an effort to retain exceedingly qualified talent. Each office should create an atmosphere that encourages career development. The expression “help them grow or they will go” is accurate.
Staffers must have clear responsibilities and the freedom to meet their assigned goals. At least 10% management is required or you are not a manager. Training in research skills, rules, and legislative floor training is a must.
The media world is constantly changing and key staff must be given the latitude to creatively adapt and grow with the media marketplace. Training and professional development includes media training and mentorship.
Education coming from constituents, advisors, colleagues, and experts on all matters builds awareness and evidence-based solutions. Legislative resources training and collaborative coaching enhance office efficiency and drive results.
