PERTINENT CORNERSTONE INFORMATION
As a component of the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Coast Guard has been mandated to deliver to their new and seasoned supervisors, both military and civilian, a supervisory training program that provides leadership training to anyone supervising a civilian.
Secretary Napolitano established the Leader Development Program Office in May 2010 under the Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer in order to elevate the importance of leader effectiveness across DHS as an investment in mission achievement. Through the dedicated efforts of cross-Component working groups, the DHS Leader Development Program was established around a DHS-specific Leader Development Framework and Leader Development Competencies. This Framework identified five levels of DHS leaders—Team Member, Team Lead, Supervisor, Manager, and Executive—and high-level roadmaps for foundational and best-practice developmental activities at each level. The purpose of the Leader Development Program is to ensure all DHS Components collaborate to support a consistent investment in the development of every leader across the Department.
Deputy Secretary Lute approved the Leader Development Framework in January 2011 and provided direction for the path forward. She prioritized the construction and implementation of the Cornerstone Program, which provides a developmental roadmap for new and seasoned supervisors at all levels across the Department, as the first and most critical element of the Framework. The Cornerstone Program is designed to take a baseline requirements approach in order to optimize the many established leader development activities already in place across the Department, and highlight opportunities for increasingly efficient, effective, and consistent development—while still supporting Component-specific mission-centric leader development as necessary. This approach allows Components to identify the best way for their target audiences to meet these requirements, whether through existing training, new developmental activities, collaborative cross-Component programming, or a combination.
The DHS/USCG Cornerstone Program includes:
· Understanding the DHS Leadership Commitment (non-supervisory audiences)
· Supervisory Onboarding: L90X
