Continuous Supervisory Leader Development
ATTENTION: CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FLAGVOICE WITH THE LATEST PERTINENT CORNERSTONE INFORMATION
As described in the Cornerstone Program requirements, Coast Guard is responsible for providing and ensuring employee compliance with the annual 12-hour self-development and 12-hour “leader as teacher” requirements below.
Continuous learning is essential to keeping pace with changing and increasing demands. A learning orientation is not only a vital quality in a leader, it is also what the Department expects our leaders to be willing to invest in executing mission excellence.
Minimum 12 hours of annual Leader-As-Teacher “Give-Back”
Many supervisors “give-back” in many ways and never think about the valuable role they play in leader development – at DHS we want to recognize that significant effort and encourage more of it.
Coast Guard Implementation:
It is highly encouraged that all supervisors take advantage of e-Learning opportunities available 24/7 through Skillsoft courses, books and videos via the CG Portal to meet their annual continuous learning requirements. To assist in this initiative a group of DHS approved courses have already been preloaded into your Skillsoft "My Plan" in a folder titled "DHS Cornerstone." Skillsoft provides training resources and on-the-job support tools that enhance business and technical skills. Additionally, all supervisors will be encouraged to look for ways they can give back; in some instances that may already be occurring and if so, please continue to serve and maintain records of your service.(See how to use LMS to get credit for your training!)
