CCSF and MEA Leadership Development Program- Nomination Period Now Open

August 23, 2023

DHR is now accepting nominations for the 13th annual CCSF and MEA Leadership Development program that begins this September, 2023. The program welcomes nominations from all City departments for MEA-represented and unrepresented managers reflecting a diversity of experiences and backgrounds. This program is offered at no cost to departments. 

Department Heads may nominate individuals for the program, or the department may allow managers to self-nominate. A nomination form is attached. Completed nomination forms will be accepted from August 15th through September 7th; and will be reviewed in the order received. In order to ensure a diverse cohort, a maximum number of 1-3 program spots will be designated for participating departments, depending on department size and overall response. For this reason, early nomination is only one of the factors DHR considers in selecting the cohort.  

The program will run from September through mid-November and will consist of 10-12 sessions. Four of the sessions will occur in-person, and seven sessions will occur on the Zoom platform. The attached brochure outlines the program components, schedule, and prerequisites. Please refer to the website for detailed information regarding the prerequisites of this program.   

The CCSF and MEA Leadership Development program is ideal for managers who are interested in strengthening their ability to communicate effectively with multiple audiences, and support team members through effective coaching and conflict management techniques. This program aims to empower managers with the skills and confidence to lead their teams effectively now and in the future. Participants will build skills and develop relationships with other leaders in the City.
