EP008: An After Hours Discussion on Leader Professional Development Programs

This week the Leaders Huddle production team goes off script to bring you an after-hours discussion on Leader Professional Development (LPD) programs. Whether you’ve led an LPD, been tasked to lead an LPD, or sat through a mind numbing discussion of a book you forgot to read – this podcast will resonate with those seeking to increase the leadership capacity of their unit or organization. A well implemented and executed program not only serves to educate, train, and challenge subordinates, but can also create cohesive teams through mutual trust and experiences. We’ll discuss development and certification programs we’ve experienced, what we learned, and provide innovative examples for your future LPD.
