Bridging the Gap - Exeter Met Office

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: A National Spotlight

160816 Exeter Met Office 960 x 640

This event is structured around the themes of leadership, self-progression and effective communication – with a view to providing staff from across departments with a forum to share ideas and a solid platform for development into the leaders of tomorrow.

With a combination of activities and demonstrations, the event aims to:

  • Bridge the gap between departments – the event is open to all sections of the Civil Service in the South-West and staff will be allocated into mixed department groups, providing a networking platform and possible opportunities for secondment.
  • Bridge the gap between managers and staff – a number of senior managers have agreed to give up their time and take part in “speed-dating” sessions offering groups of staff members a chance to find out about the numerous ways that people can and have progressed within the Civil Service.
  • Bridge the gap between you and the leader in you – the event will involve presentations from key note speakers, self-analysis exercises and opportunities to meet those from Civil Service Local and Civil Service Learning, all with a view to empower staff to take responsibility for their development and be the service’s leaders and forerunners.
