ELDP in the US Virgin Islands
Why is the Executive Leadership Development Program Important?
The insular areas have experienced many challenges in developing and retaining qualified, skilled staff. Additionally, many senior leaders and managers in insular governments are expected to retire within the next several years, leaving a potential leadership, managerial and technical capability gap. The insular areas need to establish a pool of staff with potential for promotion into these critical positions and groom them through training programs, special assignments, and systematic mentoring.
What are the Benefits of the USVI EDLP?
The ELDP offers five major components: formal training, mentoring, various development and reading assignments, and major team project. Each training session will blend technical, managerial, and leadership skills development. Participants will be assigned projects and activities that must be completed between training sessions. These assignments will have practical workplace applications, and they will be monitored closely and evaluated by ELPD instructors.
