Ask the Expert Panel Series

You Submit QUESTIONS. They Provide ANSWERS!

The Ask the Expert Panel Series is an organizational development (OD) intervention that was designed to provide managers and supervisors with an in-depth learning experience regarding critical topics within the City of Houston. The series is predicated on documented feedback received from the middle-level and executive-level managers of the 2014-2015 Leadership Institute Program (LIP). The series will enable managers and supervisors to explore issues through question-and-answer dialogue with a unique blend of panelists, consisting of department directors, deputy directors, assistant directors and subject matter experts.

Expert Panelists

The role of the expert panelists is to provide an informal platform for managers and supervisors to seek high quality advice and expertise on a range of issues that are hindering work outcomes. The objective is to provide a pragmatic, application-oriented experience to help employees mitigate and circumvent challenges related to talent management, leadership, workforce planning, compensation and performance.

Series highlights include:
  • Addressing challenges concerning the hiring process
  • Recommending strategies for improving hiring outcomes

  • Offering approaches for increasing trust in the manager-employee relationship
