Have you heard? The first annual Leadership Book Club which was inspired by comments made by Greg Adams, State of TN COO, kicked off on February 12, 2014. Consisting of 50 alumni from TGMI, TGEI, and Lead TN, the Leadership Book Club provides an opportunity to come together and discuss selected leadership books on a monthly basis. In addition, books read can earn points in the Leadership Black Belt program and be tracked in your training history within Edison. The first of four books to be read in 2014 is 'The Fred Factor' by Mark Sanborn. If you are interested in joining a future Leadership Book Club, please contact April Romero.

Begun in 2000, the Tennessee Government Management Institute (TGMI) is the catalyst by which Tennessee and its managers are transformed into the best this nation has to offer. The Leaders of the State, the Department of Human Resources, and the University of Tennessee have formed an alliance that provides Tennessee managers with an environment of academic freedom, and commitment to excellence, in which to grow beyond all of their actual and perceived boundaries. TGMI is the beginning of developing a new attitude or the opportunity to stoke the fires of an already positive attitude. Over 90 percent of all graduates through 2006 have received promotions after participating in the program. The promotion rate and the impact of graduates after completing the program are evidence of the excellent job the participating departments and the Department of Human Resources have done in identifying Tennessee´s best and brightest.
This is not just another training program, not just another two weeks away from the office. TGMI feeds every manager´s passion for excellence. TGMI gives each participant a chance to grow and learn and give back to those who will benefit the most; employees, departments, and most importantly the citizens of the Great State of Tennessee.
This program feeds a passion for bigger and better, by transforming the good into the best. TGMI works to increase the vision and future outlook and output of graduates.
TGMI is the forum where Tennessee´s leaders can grow, develop, and expand their knowledge in career changing ways for the betterment of state government. Come, be one of the elite in state government and in all management.
Become one of the select few who are TRANSFORMING TENNESSEE!
History of the Program, Mission Statement and Value of the Program
