The Greater Kansas City Federal Executive Board developed a new program for emerging leaders. The Federal Emerging Leaders Development (FELD) Program is a 9-month program targeted towards GS-9 through GS-12 to develop and support future leaders within the Federal government. Participants interact with local executives, visit local agencies, work in groups, refine their writing and speaking skills, share information and explore unique challenges. Course work is augmented by a Servant Leadership Capstone Project from each participant and participants are expected to spend personal (non‐work) time on reading and tasks needed to prepare for program sessions.
Class sessions are full day sessions on the second Tuesday of every month from October – June and led by Federal trainers, including those formerly from the Army’s Management Staff College. Participants are selected through a competitive review process by the FELD Council. For quality purposes, the program is limited to 25 cohort members and a maximum of 4 per Agency. Cost for the program is $1000.
