Leadership Year: Learning Café – Skillsoft

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke announced the DHS Leadership Year on October 1, a yearlong effort (FY18) to promote a culture of leadership excellence and highlight the importance of leadership at all levels. As part of the initiative, the Office of Leadership (CG-12C) will highlight leadership opportunities available, give the fleet tools and resources to support leaders/supervisors in effectively managing performance, and continue the leadership dialogue.

Starting in December, the Office of Leadership will hold virtual Learning Cafes via Adobe Connect every other month on leadership and development opportunities available to the fleet.

The kick off learning café will be held live on December 12 and will cover professional development opportunities through Skillsoft. We will take questions the day of the recording and the link to the session will be made available as soon as possible.

Skillsoft offers courses, certifications, books (download and audio), and videos for free to active duty, Reserve, civilian, and Auxiliary with access to the Coast Guard network. This program is also available to spouses and dependents of Coast Guard military and civilian employees as well. Please get the word out to everyone who may need this information.

If you can’t make the presentation, don’t worry – it will be posted on the Office of Leadership (CG-12C) website.

DATE: Tuesday, December 12

TIME: 1 p.m. (EST)
