"The citizens of Missouri expect their government to perform well for them every day. They expect us to deliver results on the most important issues facing our state, like workforce development and infrastructure," said Gov. Parson. "We know we need to get better. That means making sure our state leaders have the skills they need to best serve our citizens. I am proud that we are starting The Missouri Way program to do just that."

The State of Missouri will hold the program approximately every 90 days. The goal is to train 1,000 managers in The Missouri Way by the end of 2019.

Approximately 130 supervisors, managers, and leaders from across the 16 executive departments participated in The Missouri Way training program this week.

"The Missouri Way program is yet another tangible example of how we are investing in our people as never before," said Sarah Steelman, Commissioner of the Office of Administration.
