What formal training is planned for the ELDP participants?
Four formal training sessions are planned throughout the twelve months. All members of the cohort will meet for one week for each of the four sessions. During the first week participants complete several self-assessment activities and plan for some of their assignments. For example, they identify potential mentors, project topics, and unique government issues or challenges. The second week covers core leadership skills. The third week participants learn how to manage people and organizations to continually improve their effectiveness and efficiency. In the last week each of the participants present their team projects, completed during the previous twelve months.
