ICMA has a great deal of career resources for emerging leaders.
A fantastic resource is a series of Leadership Development Programs. These programs offer participants interactive learning, superlative instructors, networking with colleagues, and engaging discussions of key management and leadership issues. Participants will enhance their leadership and management skills while forming a collegial learning community with their peers. Enrollment in these programs is limited to provide a small group learning community of future leaders.
Another resource available to aspiring leaders, new leaders, and experienced leaders is the report, “Building the Leadership Pipeline.” Members will find the report useful as a case-study resource on how to develop the next generation of talent in their communities.
The Cal-ICMA Coaching Program compiled a report of 28 case studies to help with the development of the Next Generation of Managers. The guidebook highlights programs being used by local governments who believe it is their responsibility to mentor young and mid-career professionals.
