Whether your ambition is to rise to the top of your organization, or to lead from where you are, the Management Assistance Team’s (MAT) Conservation Leadership Program of Study (CLPS) can help.

Leadership isn’t just for the corner office. The potent force shaping behavior in organizations is the combination of expressed expectations of purpose, intent, and values. Behaviors do not change just by announcing organizational values. Leaders move gradually into being able to act congruently with those values. These ideas speak with a simple clarity to issues of effective leadership. The leader’s task is first to embody these principles, and then help the organization become this standard. Leaders with integrity have truly learned there is no choice but to walk the talk and thus lead organizations to success.

MAT designed the CLPS to fit the needs of state fish and wildlife agency employees by delivering an exceptional leadership development experience. The CLPS is an affordable way to learn about leadership in various stages of professional growth and development. Our curriculum provides case examples from fish and wildlife conservation and selected course work relative to the fish and wildlife competencies. Several of these courses feature video segments from the authors and other leading authorities. Some courses have lecturers from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and other current experts in their field of instruction. This program will compliment any existing leadership program an agency might already have in place. For those states not having a program, the CLPS offers employees an opportunity for leadership growth in individual tracks or building upon tracks.
