Executive Education

About Our Program

Our Executive Education programs provide continuing education opportunities for current and potential senior executives. At each level of leadership development, an emphasis is placed on individual development of core competencies within the context of the Agency’s mission, vision, and critical leadership needs.

Our Offerings

Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Program (SESCDP):

The Department of the Interior’s Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Program (SESCDP) is an OPM approved program that is tailored to grow and develop aspiring senior executive leaders. The SESCDP focuses on developing the competencies in each of the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) to prepare candidates to lead at the executive level.

Leadership Effectiveness Exchange (LEE) Series for Federal Executives:

The Federal Leadership Effectiveness Exchange (LEE) Series for Federal Executives is a free facilitated workshop that allows federal executives to help each other, as peers, to find new approaches and strategies for meeting difficult leadership challenges. All sessions are confidential and table seating is assigned to assure as much of an inter-agency mix as possible. Please note that to ensure a peer experience, all participants must be in the Senior Executive Service (SES) or equivalent to attend. Within your leadership level, you may attend as many or as few of the sessions as you wish.

Research indicates that people rely more on peers, rather than experts, as a guide to decide what to do back on the job.

LEE workshop sessions will be divided into two parts.
