Launching January 2022

The goal and purpose of the Leadership Development Program is to create an inclusive, adaptable, and collaborative work environment by providing common language, experiences, expectations, tools, and resources for leaders. Although everyone is a leader in their own capacity, this program is targeted towards those who supervise or have direct reports, and those interested in becoming supervisors.

  • Image 1: Leadership Development Program

Human Resources is committed to creating an inclusive, adaptable, and collaborative work environment with high retention (lower turnover) and high employee engagement by developing leaders who are  courageous, self-aware, inclusive, empathetic, accountable, strong communicators, team builders, and problem solvers.

The Leadership Development program is a three-level sequential program: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Employees need to complete each level before advancing to the next level.  Employees do not have to advance to the next level after completing a level, or complete all levels.

This program is open to all County employees who have at least 1 direct report, or are looking to grow so they may become a leader in the future. 

Prerequisite Requirement: Complete Supervisor Essentials within the last three years.
