Management Development


Currently, there is a lack of established and consistent set of leadership behaviors and competencies that are promoted, supported and measured across the state.  The purpose of this project is to develop a multi-level training program for supervisors, managers and executives aligned with the state’s leadership competency models that enhances performance and better prepares our leaders to manage a diverse and dynamic workforce.


Improve the performance of leaders at all levels of civil service by creating a sustainable, comprehensive statewide leadership infrastructure.  Opportunity to analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate leadership development training curriculum, tools and resources available to agencies and departments.


  • Phase 1:  Finalize a refreshed 80 hour supervisory curriculum and align training program with the leadership competencies and new leadership philosophy and values.  Evaluate and validate model for desired leadership development outcomes which will serve as the foundation for a progressive development series.
  • Phase 2:  Develop strategies for each level of leadership in state government.  Strategy will be comprised of an integrated plan for how the state will assess and respond to the unique leadership development needs.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Revise Government Code 19995.4
  • Create a multi-level leadership competency model.
  • Update current 80 hour supervisor training curriculum.
  • Make management development recommendations
  • Make executive develop recommendations.
