That has been reflected in a lot of the staffing that has been done. You’ve been recruiting change agents, but how do you make sure the changes outlast their cham- pions? A lot of the most effective leaders are not planning to settle into government for the next 15 years. We’ve found that the impact, the scale and the mission of government are not only a powerful recruiting tool. Once here, there are plenty of talented people who are choosing to stay. Look at Ryan Panchadsaram, who’s now deputy CTO, and Marina Martin, who’s now the CTO at VA. They both started out as Presidential Innovation Fellows. And they’re not alone. But again, I think the real staying power depends on collaboration. It’s not enough to just bring in smart, talented people. They need to work hand-in-hand with the many innovators and career leaders in government, and then to show incre- mental results and quick wins. As these new leaders come in, is there advice that you’d give them — things you wish you had known before you showed up at GSA? I think I actually did this, but the most important thing is to really spend a lot of time listening and learning at the start — to recognize the talents that already exist and learn from those people. I benefited tremendously from doing that. I think one of the hardest things is to learn how to find that tal- ent. Early participation in as many governmentwide or agency-specific, not really just meetings, but groups that can help provide visibility and insight on the things that are already working. You need to learn how to tap into and leverage those rather than starting from scratch. You’ve said you’re going to take a break before jumping into what- ever’s next. Are you doing anything fun this summer? I am! My husband and I are riding our bikes from Jasper to Banff and Lake Louise, through the Canadian Rockies along the Icefields Parkway, which is supposed to be one of the 50 most spectacular bike rides anywhere. Was this the last government job for you? Or might you cycle back into the public sector at some point? I could certainly be lured back in the future. As I said, this has been inspiring and rewarding, and depending on the next administra- tion...that’s hard to predict, but I wouldn’t rule it out. n Our business is citizens.
