Abstract:

The quality of federal leaders is vital to the effectiveness of our government. No longer can we depend on leaders simply and conveniently emerging, rather we must invest in a deliberate systematic process to develop leaders at all levels. Research indicates that currently our government does not grow effective leaders. Often those rising to the top are technical experts with minimal leadership experiences, mostly unacquainted with the fundamentals of leadership. How can our government grow civilian leaders Realizing all leaders do not possess the potential to rise to the top, how do we identify those with the potential to lead government-wide Once potential leaders are identified, how will our federal agencies invest in them to lead 21st Century organizations This SRP documents the urgency to develop civilian leaders. It proposes a new leadership development strategy built on empowering innovation and partnership across the federal government. The time is right for change - our nation depends on powerful civilian leaders.
