Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP)

Leadership Development Program

ELDP Graduating Class of 2015-2016

The Executive Leadership Development Program is designed for high potential employees at the GS-13 and 14 levels or equivalent whose career plans include moving into upper management positions. It is one of the “flagship” leadership development programs managed and funded by the Department of Commerce that support the Human Capital Management Plan and workforce succession planning. These programs target “mission critical” positions expected to experience major attrition through retirements and other reasons. The program provides leadership development opportunities and addresses key competencies. Formal training and leadership development activities are the foundation of this program resulting in a cadre of well-trained, well-qualified employees for leadership roles in the Department of Commerce. Individuals selected for this program remain in their current positions and grade levels. Selected participants are expected to be self-starters and highly motivated individuals who, through their experience, curriculum must be completed in sixteen (16) months while balancing current job assignments.
