We are improving transforming
employee and leadership development
Based on a needs assessment and as part of a multi-year shaping plan, we have been working with a village of diverse employees from across the Texas A&M University community to transform leadership and employee development. It is competency-based, progressive development in alignment with one's role – current and future.

Texas A&M's new leadership development framework and the Leading Others program were the first to launch. And, we are pleased to share new programs and development activities will launch this coming spring – Spring 2022.

One of which is Leading Self everyone is a leader at Texas A&M – you do not have to be a supervisor or manager to lead. This leadership development program helps university employees build foundational leadership competencies to enable a common language, practice, and culture across the University community.

The other is Functional Development for HR Liaisons the inaugural functional development program. The intent of the functional development programs is to provide more holistic and integrated development, enhance competencies, as well as help better prepare one to transition and career path into a key functional role such as HR Liaison, Business, Academic Advising, etc.
In addition, we are now seeking nominations for the next Leading Others cohort (Spring 2022). It is for emerging leaders or leaders of individual contributors (formal, intact groups, project groups, or informal groups). The intent is to enhance competencies of those who lead groups and help one transition from being an individual performer to leading a group of people. Leading Others is yielding great results since its launch in 2019 – the majority of participants’ supervisors indicate participants are delegating more work, providing specific expectations, and coaching to improve performance. The top response from supervisors indicates less conflict between the participant and their team.  

See below for more information on each of these programs; and, join us Dec 6-10 to learn more about our new programs and our future direction.

Here is what some participants are saying...
"The sessions are structured impeccably as the program builds upon prior concepts and knowledge, and the facilitation is engaging and high caliber led by individuals who truly care about the content and the growth of each participant. Every session is tremendously valuable..."

Here is what some pilot participants are saying...
"Enroll in Leading Self if you believe in investing valuable time and effort to your professional development. The Leading Self journey, I think, will be different for every participant, depending on the experiences they bring with them. But, at the end of the program, I think each participant will feel more connected to the university and in the knowledge that we're a part of this learning community."
- Mona Somers, Division of Research
The Leading Self program was very appealing to me when my manager presented it as a suggestion for me to be a part of the pilot program. I basically jumped at that opportunity and my life has changed a lot since then, for the better.

Here is what some pilot participants are saying...
"I think this is a wonderful program…we are growing in diversity at Texas A&M and HR just like other fields. It can be very intimidating going into HR…because you think you’re not going to know what to do, but this program gives you the foundation that you need to be successful."
- LaTasha Phillips, College of Geosciences
"It's been very educational for me to go from not knowing anything at all…to be able to perform as a HR Liaison. I believe that they really looked into the best ways for us to learn…and I believe that the resources they gave us…will be very helpful in the future."
