Air Force Print News (Nov. 2, 2007): officials select civilians for Strategic Leader Program.

WASHINGTON -- Air Force officials have selected 84 civilians for the Civilian Strategic Leader Program, formerly known as the GS-15 Leadership Development Program.

"The CSLP is designed to help institutionalize the total force development," said Lt. Gen. Roger Brady, chief of manpower and personnel for the Air Force at the Pentagon. "Our goal is to identify, develop, and support a leadership cadre that will successfully execute the evolving Air Force mission and be prepared to successfully lead at the senior executive level."

Although the name of the program has changed, the goal remains the same: to develop eligible GS-15, Pay Band 3, or equivalent-level civilian employees for senior leadership positions.

"We have a responsibility in the Air Force to maintain a viable civilian workforce, and that involves growing competent civilian leaders and preparing them properly to assume senior civilian positions," said Tim Beyland, assistant deputy chief of staff for Air Force manpower and personnel.

CSLP was designed to bring civilian senior leader development and career management practices in line with current general officer, senior executive corps, and colonel practices.

"The Air Force tries to identify high-potential officers early, and we try to develop them deliberately and move them into senior leader jobs," Beyland said. "The civilian side is no different. We try to identify high-potential people, develop them deliberately, give them an opportunity to demonstrate leadership, and grow them into senior leadership positions at either the Pay Band 3 level, or above that at the senior executive service level."

Under the program, civilian employees applied to compete for senior leadership positions based on experience, cross-functional broadening, and geographical preference. Any civilian employee currently in a GS-15, Pay Band 3, or equivalent-level position can apply annually for CSLP online. As part of the application process, participants receive a personalized assessment of past accomplishments and a recommended career vectoring based on their education, professional foundation, and future goals.
