DC Government Executive Leadership Program

The Executive Leaders Program in the DC Government was designed to enhance the supply of executive-level talent across the District by establishing a robust cadre of Cabinet-ready leaders from which current and future mayors can draw.

Starting in March 2014, the DC ELP leaders met for 5 face-to-face sessions that provided a full immersion experience in areas of Organizational Leadership, Strategic Foresight & Systems Thinking, Leading Change & Managing Transition, Data Analytics & Critical Thinking, Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and Executive Communication & Political Savvy. In addition, participants take part in peer action learning groups and also received individual executive coaching. 


We look forward to partnering with the DC Department of Human Resources (DCHR) yet again to offer the ELP program to a new cohort of up-and-coming DC Government leaders in 2016-17.
