Leadership Development Program (LDP) for Non-Academic Staff
The Leadership Development Program (LDP) for Non-Academic Staff in the Department of Medicine (DOM) is intended for high potential employees who are individual contributors (non-managers) in our department.
A High-Potential employee is: An employee “who is capable of rising to and succeeding at a more senior, critical role (and whose potential can be measured by) their personal aspiration, functional ability, and engagement.” - CEB Corporate Leadership Council
The program aims to give participants an overview of our Department, as well as our School, while also exposing them to the individuals leading our Department and School. High-potential employees will have the opportunity to learn about the Department and think of their own career trajectory and how to get to the next step.
The Program runs from January 2020-May 2020 and requires about a 4 hour commitment per month. Program sessions will take place in the morning and will cover presentations by leaders on various functional areas as well as workshops on self-branding, self-awareness and completion of a case study by each participant.
Participants will benefit from the opportunity to learn about our Department, the largest department in the entire University as well as engaging in workshops that will help them with their own self-awareness and branding. The Program also offers participants the opportunity to meet Department and School leaders and network with other High-Potential employees.
- Active DOM staff in non-academic, benefited position
- Staff in all classifications and salary grades A through G, in non-managerial positions

Lauren Arthur - Cohort 2
Why did you decided to participate in LDP? I decided to participate in the LDP because I wanted to learn more about the Department of Medicine, gain tips for success and to network with coworkers.
What insights did you gain from the LDP experience? I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I came away filled with ideas after every session. Hearing from DOM leadership was inspiring and it was refreshing to hear about their individual career trajectory. I also learned a variety of tools and techniques to help my everyday workflow, such as Process Improvement, self-branding and collaborative tools.
How has participating in LDP helped further your career goals? Prior to the LDP I was working as an Administrative Associate in The Division of Hospital Medicine. The LDP gave me the confidence and ambition to achieve an opportunity within my division and I am now Administrative and Finance Associate.
