Leading teams to deliver great results for California is fundamental for state leaders. As a manager, you are a steward of taxpayer resources and administer vital programs for Californians. By the end of this class, you will be able to apply critical skills to lead teams, leverage resources, and use best practices to effectively and efficiently operate your program.

Emerging Leaders

Each five-day cohort selects one colleague who best exemplifies the philosophy, values, and competencies of the California Leadership Academy's Manager Development Program to receive the Emerging Leader award. The award entitles the recipient to three days of complementary training from the Statewide Training Center.


Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Apply leadership skills and techniques for leading teams
  • Utilize best practice management methodologies to operate programs and run organizations
  • Build and sustain a diverse and talented workforce with the capability needed to perform the mission and achieve the strategic objectives of the organization
  • Apply program planning, prioritization, and metrics to development skills and monitor performance
  • Ensure relevant labor agreements are applied throughout your program

Intended Audience

Managers (SSMII/III) appointed after June 27, 2016. SSM1 managers may also attend with the understanding that the intended audience is for senior managers who typically supervise teams and serve as program managers.


Please note that the Leadership Academy satisfies the training requirements for newly appointed managers and completion of the 80 hours supervisor’s course is a prerequisite.
