2)  SFFEB’s Leadership Development

For Staff at GS 11-13 or equivalent

Info Flyer: LDP Overview 2018

Applications will be Uploaded Summer 2018

The Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a program developed by the SFFEB competency-based program that provides training and developmental experiences for high-potential GS11-13s and prepares them for leadership positions in the Federal government. It holds special significance for employees who need to complement their technical expertise with professional leadership knowledge, skills, and experience. A structure has been designed for program participants to acquire or build on the competencies needed to become successful Federal leaders.

We are excited to announce our partnership with Coro Northern California as our Program Director.  Coro Northern California is a nonprofit organization that focuses on training collaborative leaders who can tackle pressing public problems.  Our training aims to prepare you to take risks, disrupt old patterns, and make way for new ways of thinking, doing, and leading.

The goals of the Leadership Development Program are to:
•Prepare participants for senior leadership positions within the Federal government
•Assess and develop members’ aptitude and capabilities about the Executive CoreQualifications through a variety of experiential training methods
•Enable participants to work with Federal agencies to identify and solve real organizational problems
•Expose participants to leadership and management best practices of both governmental and non-governmental organization


3)  OPM’s Presidential Management Council Rotational Development Program

Focus on GS 13-15 or equivalent

Program Runs April – September, Applications will be Uploaded Fall 2018

Developing future leaders is an important aspect of agency management.  With that in mind, SFFEB is excited to share information about an initiative led by the President’s Management Council (PMC).  This program matches high-potential GS 13-15s with six-month interagency rotational assignments that enable emerging Federal leaders to expand their management skills, broaden their organizational experience, and foster networks they can leverage in the future.

Please encourage high-potential GS 13-15s within your agency to participate in a rotation, with the concurrence of their immediate supervisor and component management, and encourage managers to host a PMC Rotations Fellow. During a time of limited resources, releasing a top performer for six months is a difficult decision.  This is a chance to offer high-potential staff members an exceptional learning experience.  You may also want to consider hosting one of the program’s participants.

PMC Rotations will be from April 3, 2017 – September 29, 2017. We appreciate your support for this effort.  If you have questions, please contact: Sara Russell, 415-625-7723
