The Heartland Leadership Development Program (formerly the Kansas City Leadership Development Program) features a unique six-month format that begins with an intense three-day orientation focused on self-awareness and understanding. The program is based on a “whole person” model comprised offour dimensions: intellectual, emotional, physical, and behavioral. During orientation, psychological and behavioral assessments (MBTI, FIRO-B, and OPM Leadership Potential Assessment), experiential activities, discussion groups and presentations provide participants with an opportunity to explore and develop awareness of their strengths and areas for potential development.
Throughout the remainder of the program, monthly facilitated topic sessions are focused on delivery of content and activities designed to build on strengths and develop challenge areas. A number of additional assessments are conducted throughout the program to explore aspects of emotional intelligence and conflict management, among others, to further explore self-awareness and promote opportunities for personal growth and development.
Four one-on-one individual consultations with a professional coach are conducted to guide the participant’s development over the course of the program. This aspect of the program has been shown to facilitate assimilation of content, personal transformation and development, and transference of learning.
After the Orientation, participants return to their organizations and begin work on their Individual Development Plan and a Developmental Activity Plan for one or more action learning or developmental activities. Implementation of the Developmental Activity Plan takes place throughout the six months of the program, and a final report is due at the end of the program. The selected development activity should provide the participant with an opportunity to stretch and develop their challenge areas and is to be tailored around both a personal/professional road map and the needs of the participant’s organization.
The six-month program concludes with a two-day meeting where participants will engage in a Career Development session and a culminating event encompassing all aspects of the program, assess personal and professional growth and results, develop a plan for continuing to build on the successes they have achieved, and celebrate their accomplishments.
This program is limited to high-potential GS-12, GS-13, and GS-14 Federal, state, and local government employees who work in and around the Heartland Region of the country.
