Introducing

LEADERS EDGE


NIGP, the pioneer in workforce development for public procurement is excited to introduce Leaders Edge, a new yearlong development program created to find and nurture rising stars in public procurement who aspire to become the next generation of executive leaders.
                                                                                                                  
Leaders Edge is an intimate, cohort-based learning experience, with a mix of in-person and online learning sessions designed to meet our members’ needs and to close the leadership gap in public procurement.

The program kicks off August 1 with a 1 ½ day workshop followed by virtual sessions throughout the year. All session topics will reinforce NIGP’s Leadership Competency Model based on skill-building across these core competencies:

  • Communication
  • Leading Change
  • Influence and Persuasion
  • Coaching and Mentoring
  • Leading Teams
  • Conflict Management
  • Strategic Thinking

"Leaders Edge is a comprehensive program that will help us identify and develop future executive-track leaders in public procurement. This is a milestone in NIGP’s history and we look forward to continuing to find innovative techniques to develop agile leaders who are ready to positively impact the profession and the organizations they work for."

- Rick Grimm, NIGP CEO
