The Emerging Leaders Civic Advancement (ELCA) Training Program aims to train and cultivate the next generation of federal leaders who are grounded by integrity and agile in resilience, have the ability to positively influence others and are civically and socially engaged in community. The ELCA Program aligns with ECQ standards, providing a pipeline for federal employees to advance their careers.
Learn about leadership and interpersonal skills, two qualities that support Executive Core Quality (ECQ) 1, and begin to understand the history of service to others by connecting civic participation through charity and philanthropy.
Learn about creativity, innovation, strategic thinking, vision, core values and gratitude, additional characteristics of ECQ1, and start to explore value-based service to the community.
Learn about team building, developing others, managing conflict, and leveraging diversity, traits that make up ECQ 2, and examine how to have courageous conversations with others in difficult situations, especially when talking about controversial topics in society.
Learn about finding solutions, persuading, influencing, negotiating, partnerships, alliances, and accountability, elements of ECQs 3 and 5, and explore how to build community by setting a collaborative table. Session 4 Discussion
