In 1997, the university created The Leadership Development Program (LDP) as a sign of its commitment to the professional development of its faculty and senior staff. The program goal was to create a high-performing cadre of senior people who would be able to:
- Use key principles of leadership to create structures and procedures that support staff development linking individual performance to organizational performance,
- Share information to create visions and values that transform JHU while recognizing the needs of a diverse workplace,
- Access environmental issues and use continuous improvement strategies to confront potential problems and avoid the damage of flawed decision-making.
- Lead work groups while working cooperatively (across functional and organizational divisions) to achieve shared institutional goals and promote productive change through dynamic partnerships,
- Foster ongoing dialogues in ways that promote organizational learning and make it safe for people to communicate openly, take risks and avoid error in decision-making.
In 2000, an Executive Coaching component was added to extend the learning from the class sessions into the work place. Participants, who opt for this feature of the program, schedule sessions at their convenience with professional staff from Organization Developement or approved external coaches. As we have experimented successfully with leadership and managerial development over the past few years, our discussions with past participants of the LDP have emphasized the need for follow up to ensure the maximum effectiveness of the learning experience. Our goal is to open new avenues of constructive change with them as individuals and in their own workplace.
Eligibility: By invitation and special arrangement
