OPM Releases Leadership Development Roadmap for Aspiring Senior Executives
The Office of Personnel Management has released the Federal Supervisory Training Framework for federal employees aspiring to become part of the top ranks.
OPM worked with the Chief Learning Officer’s Council to construct the manager training roadmap.
“The framework and guidance outlines mandatory and recommended training for aspiring leaders, along with current and newly appointed supervisors and managers, and incorporates key training recommendations outlined in the National Council on Federal Labor-Management Relations ‘Report to the National Council on Federal Labor-Management Relations – Getting in G.E.A.R. for Employees Performance Management,’” wrote OPM’s Associate Director for Employee Services Angela Bailey in a memo to agency human resources directors. “The framework also includes important objectives outlined in the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010, as well as critical leadership competencies and technical HR knowledge needed to succeed as a supervisor.”
The framework sets out three levels of competencies: aspiring leader or team leader, which lists competencies including problem solving and leadership competencies such as oral and written communication; new supervisor, which is geared toward managers with three months or less on the job and has three levels of competencies: HR-related technical skills, recruitment and retention and performance management; and supervisors in their first year, which includes the same competencies as the new supervisor and adds talent management and organizational performance management.
“The various competencies will be linked to existing online and classroom training opportunities across the federal government,” Bailey wrote. “Agencies are encouraged to share course information that ties to any of the competency areas within the Supervisory Training Framework.”
