Framework: The Role of Leadership Development in Improving Organizational Success
In December 2015, the President signed a new Executive Order entitled, "Strengthening the Senior Executive Service." The Order ws the culmination of several months of research, analysis and deliberate engagement by the White House with current members of the SES to understand challenges and solicit ideas for improvement.
The Order provided some specific mandates on subjects such as succession management, hiring and development. However, it gave agencies broad latitude on how each chose to bring the Order to life. All are using it to positively impact their SES corps and, ultimately, to improve their organization's mission success over the long term.
This FED session will provide insights, through local examples, of how the implementation of the Executive Order in total is being used as a platform for SES leader development. At the same time it will explore how this "development anchor" can be translated to effective organization change and improvement.
