About the Program
The mission of the DHS Leader Development Program (LDP) is to lead the DHS-wide development-related strategies, systems, policies, tools and communities of purpose that are instrumental to enabling a culture and practice of effective leadership to support and sustain a proficient, engaged and mission-capable workforce.
The LDP utilizes DHS-specific Leader Development Competencies and a DHS-wide Leader Development Framework to outline the minimum development necessary for proficiency at all leader levels.
This Framework, which breaks down each level of leadership into separate developmental “stones”, identifies roadmaps for required and best-practice development activities at each level, and includes the Leadership Bridges strategy to encourage development in advance of accession to increased levels of leadership responsibility.
