Jackson Nickerson is dispensing advice for executives in a new column targeting government managers.
Professor Nickerson’s bi-weekly column, under the heading: “Ask EIG: Leadership Insights for Federal Managers” (EIG stands for Excellence in Government), is posted on the website of Government Executive, the premier publication and website for federal managers and executives.
The column is a partnership between Government Executive and the management experts at Brookings Executive Education.
