This month, the National Security Agency has retained WashU at Brookings to provide instruction on conflict resolution to executives at NSA. WashU at Brookings brings together two premier institutions to deliver on Robert S. Brookings’ desire to “teach the art of handling problems rather than simply impart accumulated knowledge” to those in and engaged with government. The goal of this partnership is to support the men and women who serve our country with cutting-edge leadership courses, either at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC, onsite at the requesting agency, or virtually. The instructor retained for this course is Paul Paese, of PMC. Paul will be teaching”Strategies for Conflict Resolution.” Paul’s continued work with the distinguished executives at NSA continues to be an honor and a joy.

The program kicks off this month and continues through May 2023. Paul Paese, of PMC, will be teaching “Critical Conversations,” a module on how to think and respond more productively – and with fewer unintended consequences – in challenging workplace conversations.

NHHC logoJust returned from the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) in Washington, DC. Located in the Washington Navy Yard, the NHHC’s mission priorities are to (a) serve as the institutional memory of the U.S. Navy, (b) discern and document lessons learned from naval military history, and (c) locate and protect lost U.S. Navy ships and aircraft. NHHC retained WashU at Brookings to provide instruction on conflict resolution to their senior executives. The instructor retained for this purpose was Paul Paese, of PMC. Paul thoroughly enjoyed the experience and came away with a deeper appreciation of what “commitment to mission” really means and how much our populace owes to the men and women in career-long military service.
