Leadership Education And Development (LEAD)

The Indiana State Personnel Department has introduced an initiative to develop managers and leaders throughout State Government. It’s called the Leadership Education And Development program. In 2022 the first of three tiers were introduced, with the first tier focusing on the foundational skills needed to be a successful manager/leader.

This program is accessible to all state employees and is all computer-based, self-paced learning. The course material is approximately 1 and a half hours long with a pre and post quiz. Users will develop skills in understanding employees, inclusive leadership, peer today/boss tomorrow, understanding leave time, conflict resolution, communication, emotional intelligence, and managing stress. All topics are supported by competencies recorded in SuccessFactors. You can find more information for this program, including enrollment, by selecting this link: LEAD.

  • Please reference this LEAD Resource Guide as an overview of course content as you navigate the program.

The future of this program include a selective course where participants will complete course material and capstone projects based on agency needs. This will include work on your own and in person/virtual sessions. Be on the look out for more information in the coming year!

Successful Onboarding is a collaborative effort amongst the entire organization. Each division, department, director, and manager has a responsibility to ensure that your employee’s first days, weeks, and months on the job provide a successful launch to their career. It is critically important that you provide your new employee with the foundation, tools, resources, and organizational perspective that ensures rapid inclusion within our workforce and our culture.

The Onboarding process begins at the time of an accepted job offer and it continues through your employee’s first 90 days of employment. This is not to say that Onboarding stops after 90 days. You are responsible for mentoring your new employee as they continue to develop and grow their knowledge, skills and abilities in order to be a productive member of your team. In the table below you will find a helpful guide, checklist and other tools to onboard your new employee for both the Hiring Manager and Mentor.

If your employee attends a new hire orientation session, he/she automatically receives survey assessments at 30, 60, and 90 day intervals to gauge their Onboarding experience.  These surveys are delivered to the email address indicated on their employment application.
