In order for agencies to ensure progress and reach evolving mission goals, professional development among leadership is imperative. The benefits of sustained leadership development are numerous, including improved job performance, increased employee engagement and enhanced workforce skills, to name a few.
The Department of the Treasury’s Office of the Comptroller of Currency’s innovative Continuous Leadership eXperience (CLX) program enables agency leaders to cultivate these capabilities in an organization’s competency framework. As the TOC Award recipient for Innovation in 2018, OCC’s program is cutting edge and removes many obstacles to delivering continuous leadership development. Using a microlearning approach, the CLX program employs short learning sessions in leadership curriculum over time rather than marathon seminars. The approach worked: the pilot program proved effective in its flexibility and egalitarianism, allowing all organization levels—not just higher-ups—to access the program’s leadership enrichment resources.
Join us as our panel discusses the impetus, challenges and future prospects of this Training Officers Consortium Distinguished Service Award-winning program. Learn from Melissa DuRoss and David Parks as they discuss how the lessons learned from OCC’s CLX program can influence your organization’s own transformational cultural shift. This will be a great opportunity to hear an update on how the OCC innovative program is being received by its leadership and how effective it has been.
This program covers topics in the Innovation track.
