Taking a Tiered Approach to Leadership Development
DOI University's Leadership Programs provide a planned,
systematic, competency-based approach to developing future leaders,
at all levels, for the Department of the Interior. The programs
offer enhanced development opportunities for current and future
leaders. Entry-level leadership development training provides high
potential employees with the necessary skills to transition to supervisory
and leadership roles.
Mid-Level leadership development provides leadership,
supervisory, and managerial training to address the changing roles
and competencies of Federal managers in the 21st century. A goal
of mid-level leadership development training is to build a cadre
of highly competent mid-level federal managers to address future
leadership needs of the Department of the future.
Executive-level training prepares senior managers to move up into
senior executive service positions and also provides continuing
education opportunities for current 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.
