Attorney managers are accountable for setting the direction for the activities of their attorney and administrative staff in support of the policies of the Attorney General and for insuring the work of their units is accomplished effectively and efficiently. Equally important, attorney managers are responsible for creating a workplace environment where staff willingly move forward together with their managers and each other in an atmosphere of trust, confidence, and commitment.

This program addresses the most critical management and leadership knowledge and skills required by government attorneys to achieve these accountabilities and to perform effectively their roles as attorney managers. Drawing upon case studies from Attorneys General offices, experiences of their colleagues, short lectures, large group discussions, self-evaluations, and management simulations, the program addresses such topics as: leading the unit/division/bureau, motivating staff, controlling the uncontrollable, problems in transition to attorney manager, delegation, providing constructive criticism, dealing with problem employees, personal motivations to manage, and managing change.

This is a mobile training. NAGTRI provides a number of different training platforms for the benefit of Attorney General offices. In addition to providing national trainings and webinars, NAGTRI also provides mobile trainings such as this one. During a mobile training, NAGTRI brings in a national faculty to provide staff training.
