Leadership Development Cohort (LDC)

Facilities Department Staff, 

The Facilities Department is excited to announce the launching of our 4th Leadership Development Cohort (LDC), which focuses on developing fundamentals of leadership in emerging leaders within our department. Every member of our team demonstrates leadership on a daily basis, so this is our way to develop those skills and long term build the leadership pipeline for our work.  If you are seeking to gain practical leadership skills and experience, the LDC program can help you take the next step in your career.  The cohort is focused on building foundational leadership skills and will develop participants understanding of their personal leadership style, working with others, and enacting systemic change. This year’s cohort will once again be co-facilitated by Kathy Wallace (Assistant Director of Facilities, Capital Improvement Program) and I, with lots of special guests to join in the conversation.

Program Details

The cohort will consist of 8-12 staff members from throughout the Facilities Department and will meet 5 Friday mornings over the course of 6 months. These meetings will occur during the workday, with some support provided to manage daily demands that may be impacted.  All meetings will occur at a site within SPPS.  For members of Local 70, participating in the LDC qualifies staff for premium pay in accordance with the contract.

Applying to the Program

Participation in the Leadership Development Cohort is open to all members of the Facilities Department by application.  Selection to be part of the cohort will be by the Facilities Director, with attention given to ensure the cohort represents all aspects of the Facilities Department - with an emphasis on people who do not formally supervise others.  Applications for the program are now closed, but applications for next year’s cohort will open in the late summer.
