Agency Training Leaders Discuss Leadership Development

SD&T Director Denny Clark and other state agency training leaders discussed the topic of Leadership Development during their quarterly group meeting on June 25, 2015, at the Florida Department of Education's training center in Tallahassee. Approximately 20 participants shared information about resources and lessons learned in creating and administering a leadership program at their organizations.  

Denise Hunter, Manager of Talent and Training Development for the Florida Department of Children and Families, made a formal presentation to the group on how to create a workable leadership competency model that fits hand-in-glove with professional development and succession planning.

The quarterly meeting brings together leaders in talent development and training from Florida's state agencies and other organizations to discuss topics that advance a culture of continual learning among Florida’s state agencies.

The group discussion is a high point of these meetings. The forum allows participants to share resources and experiences with one another to improve staff learning and development services within their organizations.

Thanks to the participants for sharing their expertise and information, Denise Hunter for her insightful presentation, and to Kevin Kjellerup of the Florida Department of Education for hosting the event!

The next quarterly meeting is scheduled for September 24, 2015, and will be hosted at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement headquarters in Tallahassee. For more information, please contact SD&T’s Samadhi Jones, or Kimberly Kemp of the Florida Department of Management Services.
