During the program, the associates learned how to build core and competitive-edge competence in five areas: leading change, leading people, results driven, business acumen, and building coalitions.
"ESD provides a learning and practice opportunity for selected managers and associates who have management responsibilities," said Deborah York, NEXCOM director of training and organizational development. "Participants are nominated by their department director, NEX general manager or NEXCOM district vice president. Nominations are based on the associate's work performance and potential for growth within the organization."
"Thank you for your dedication and hard work," said Rear Adm. (Sel) Glenn C. Robillard, NEXCOM commander. "This is an investment that will reap benefits not just for you individually, but also for the NEXCOM team as a whole. I'm proud we're able to provide this learning opportunity for all of you, and now you need to practice these new skills, take what you've learned and share it with the NEX team."
This is the 13th class that has graduated from the ESD program.
