U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) employees currently in grades GS-11, 12 (including current Project Leaders) are encouraged to apply for nomination as participants in the Stepping Up to Leadership Program (Program). This program offers individuals the chance to improve their leadership skills through skill assessments, coaching, self-paced and group exercises, and developmental assignments. It is designed for aspiring mid-level managers. The program includes a two-week session targeting leadership competencies and a follow-up week after a six-month interim. The interim requires a commitment to work on your Individual Development Plan through developmental assignments, coaching, and team project work. Team project presentations occur during the one-week follow-up. Areas to be covered include interpersonal skills, communication skills, team process techniques, and balancing work and personal life.
The course is designed to improve performance in thirteen different competencies of the Service's Leadership Development Guidance. The overall objectives can be roughly summarized as:
- Articulate a personal vision of leadership;
- Identify and integrate the Service's leadership competencies into personal development and career planning; and
- Exhibit leadership behaviors that actively support the Service's mission.
Applicants in the GS-11 and GS-12 grade levels are chosen by the Regions based on a competitive merit selection process. For details, contact your regional personnel office, or check at Stepping Up
