12 Hours of Self Development (12/12) (502801)

About the Program

DHS has mandated the establishment of a Cornerstone Program as part of the overall Leadership Development Program (LDP) for all components. The Cornerstone Program provides a developmental roadmap for new and seasoned supervisors, managers and executives across DHS. It is the first and most critical element of the DHS Leader Development Framework to be implemented. For additional information on the Cornerstone Program, please visit DHS Connect (Accessible only through Coast Guard workstations).

Participant Objectives

As described in the Cornerstone Program requirements, Coast Guard is responsible for providing and ensuring employee compliance with the annual 12-hour self-development below:

Required 12 hours of self-development annually:
 
  • Minimum 12 hours of annual development from internal or external providers including performance management, and any of 6 additional competencies (28 Coast Guard Leadership Competencies).
  • These may include online, reading, classroom, or other learning activities. Continuous learning modules are available on Skillport (see below for procedures to access the learning modules).

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.

Eligibility

For supervisory, managers and executives beyond their first year of federal supervision.

Enrollment Procedures

To capture completion of the Continuous Leadership Development (12/12), use the self-report completion of the Continuous Supervisory Leader Development - Cornerstone 12/12 (502801) on the Learning Management System (LMS).
