County staff members complete leadership development program

Six people holding placards

Eight leaders from Georgetown County government recently completed a year-long leadership development program facilitated by LeaderGov, of Atlanta, Ga. The participants were engaged in 12 workshops that focused on growing their understanding of themselves as leaders, skills to achieve strategic goals and skills to help them have greater success leading and developing their teams. 

The participants went through the workshop program together in an effort to foster peer-to-peer learning. During the program, participants learned and grew in areas such as building trust, dealing with conflict, knowing their personality style, servant leadership, setting high-impact goals, execution of goals, leading change, accountability, and how to motivate and support a team. 

“We are investing in our leaders so we have smooth succession planning in the years to come,” County Administrator Angela Christian said of the program. “We are also doing this because we know that leaders who know how to lead get more done, and that better serves our residents at the end of the day. Equipped leaders build strong morale, trust, and deal with issues in a productive way. And that’s what we want. Our residents will directly benefit from this work done by our team.”

Employees who completed the program include: Rob Burriss of Facilities Services; James Dorsey of the Environmental Services Division; Jim Falkenhagen, Georgetown County Fire-EMS Chief; Nicki Fulmore of the Clerk of Court’s Office; Aphra McCrea, Director of Elections and Voter Registration; Marilynn Robb, Branch Manager for the Carvers Bay Library; Nancy Silver, Purchasing Officer; and Jay Watson, County Attorney.
