APPLICATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED (FOR CITY OF PLANO EMPLOYEES ONLY)

Leadership for the 21st Century (L21) Program is an annual six-month base line leadership program that begins in April and runs through September.  Classes convene bi-weekly, facilitated by an array of skilled and experienced leadership facilitators.  To receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the program, participants cannot miss more than two classes.

ELIGIBILITY.  L21 is designed for supervisors and managers with less than five years of leadership experience and for aspiring leaders.  The program is not open to employees  on "probation" or "active disciplinary action" (i.e. performance improvement plan).

APPLYING.  To be considered for this year's L21 program, applications must be received by the deadline:  Noon, February 29, 2024.  (Note:  An incomplete application disqualifies an applicant from being considered for the upcoming program.) Each application will be evaluated based on specific criteria.  The 24 selected participants will be announced in March 2024.  This year's program kicks off Wednesday, April 10, 2024.
