Who Am I and Why Am I Here?

ARCHIVES

Government Executive readers who have been around for awhile may remember those two questions from the late Admiral James Stockdale when he participated in the 1992 vice presidential debates with Al Gore and Dan Quayle. They strike me as two good questions to answer as I begin blogging for Government Executive.

I'm a leadership strategist and executive coach who focuses on supporting successful leaders who are charged with getting different results. The change in desired results usually stems from a promotion to a new role or from a big change in the external environment. Either way, different results usually require different actions on the part of leaders. That's where I come in. My job is to help my clients and readers in the public and private sectors to get clear on the results that are expected and what they need to change to achieve them.

My goal in this blog is to provide you with news you can use to be a more effective government executive. I'll usually peg the coaching advice to a lesson that can be learned from a leader in the news. Sometimes the lessons will be from positive examples and other times they won't. Either way, I look forward to hearing your comments and thoughts. In addition to supporting you as a leader, my goal is to start a conversation about leadership from which we can all learn and benefit.

Executive coach Scott Eblin’s goal is to help you succeed at the next level of leadership. Throughout the week, he’ll offer his take on the leadership lessons in the news and his advice on your most pressing leadership questions. A former government executive, Scott is a graduate of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and is the author of The Next Level: What Insiders Know About Executive Success.
