Investing in Future Leaders Curriculum
Cohort-wide Project Kickoff
Project kickoff activities: Along with the other organizations in the program cohort, you will learn about the program goals and format, meet your coach and support team, and log into the learning platform. With your team, you will start conversations about why you are participating in the Investing in Future Leaders program, and you’ll discuss how you hope to change talent development at your organization. You’ll also have the opportunity to connect with other organizations in the cohort and hear from a past participant about their experience.
Post-kickoff assignment: You’ll complete the 5-minute module orienting you to the online platform and program resources.
Step 1: Identifying Core and Leadership Competencies
Individual learning and reflection: To prepare for the team discussion, you will reflect individually on your organization’s strategic priorities and equity goals, and you’ll consider how talent in your organization will need to change over time. You’ll learn about what competencies are, and then you’ll individually nominate the competencies that you think should be on your team’s starter list.
Leadership team discussion: As a team, you will identify a starter list of “core” and ‘leadership” competencies which reflect your values, equity goals and broader strategy. You will also decide how you will engage direct reports, broader staff, and stakeholders for input.
