Realizing the need to preserve leader knowledge and experience and realizing the importance of leaders having personal development goals, The Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) established a program to ensure that all leadership training participants were matched to a trained coach/mentor. The coach/mentor serves as an experienced resource person and as a catalyst for setting meaningful and achievable personal goals that can be incorporated into a Personal Development Plan for the training course.
At the conclusion of the presentation, participants should be able to answer the following questions:
