Eastern Region Leadership Development Program

  15 May, Noon, in 2155


In August, I'll be part of the next graduating class of the NWS Eastern Region Leadership Development Program (ERLDP). Eastern Region opened up this program to federal employees of NCEP in 2016, and I'll be the first EMC graduate in the program. To fulfill a requirement, I will be presenting a short seminar at noon on May 15 in room 2155 discussing "The Power of Emotional Intelligence and Other Epiphanies from the Eastern Region Leadership Development Program."

I'll cover some important takeaways from the program and introduce you to concept of emotional intelligence and how understanding it can benefit your career and even your interactions outside of work. I'll also focus on the 4 primary areas of the program: communication, leadership, teams, and people and relationships. The program will accept new candidates this fall, and I'll end with an overview of the program and answer questions. While the program is only open to federal employees, the takeaways I plan to present are relevant to everyone.
