Leadership at all Levels

Dear FLETC Colleagues:

The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) theme for the second quarter of Leadership Year is Leadership at all Levels. In the video you can find here, I share my perspective on leading from where you are. For a captioned version of the video, please click here.

Throughout this year focused on leadership, I hope our FLETC team will glean new perspectives on leadership and specific ideas we can take with us into our daily work lives. One way we can do this is to highlight exemplary instances of leadership here at FLETC. To that end, I invite you to nominate colleagues who have exhibited exceptional leadership.  During the first quarter, we focused on the concept of servant leadership, a philosophy that focuses on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. This quarter, we are emphasizing the opportunity to lead from where you are in the organization. Please share where you have witnessed these leadership themes here at FLETC by nominating your colleagues.

Clicking here will take you to a website where you can enter a short narrative describing an exceptional leader here at FLETC.  We will showcase nominations on Center News in the coming weeks. I look forward to learning from your viewpoints on what constitutes excellent leadership, and appreciate you taking the time to honor your colleagues who have taught you something about leadership.
