Bob Tobias, Director, Key Executive Leadership Programs, American University

Tier four is for executives who have worked at several different agencies and lead government-wide projects. Tier one is an entry level spot for current feds. Bob Tobias, director of Key Executive Leadership Programs at American University, explains it all to In Depth with Francis Rose
