Abstract: Public Administration as a field of inquiry can be very dry. Even the most passionate students could be turned away when meeting with even dryer content delivery methods. In junior service years the field may have little to offer to the entrepreneurial risk taker for higher gains inclined, compared with pursuing a business degree or career. The private sector can look even more appealing to the innovation inclined as soon as graduates turn into work force participants. _x000d__x000d_In this context, in this paper we explore and propose historically valid and time tried and tested ways to deal with this problem early from the very teaching of public administration courses. Further, the methods proposed extend in coaching majors through career planning and job searching and further career development. Through the use of inspiring story telling in the classroom in graduate and undergraduate MPA/public service programs the goal is to instill, and maintain high interest in public sector leadership, combined with the entrepreneurial spirit built through applied exercises and participatory training techniques necessary to sustain the proactive development of PA in response to the challenges it faces in practice today.
