DHFS Leadership Institute
January 2016 - Update for the DHFS Leadership Institute
After a review of the DLI, the following changes have been made to provide greater opportunities for DHFS Staff members to participate in the DLI.
- The Leadership Institute is voluntary and open to all full time DHFS Staff members
- Refection Papers are no longer required
- The Emerging Leader category is eliminated
The Division of Housing and Food Service Leadership Institute (DLI) provides relevant and challenging on-site leadership development opportunities for supervisors and employees in non-supervisory roles. The DLI's vision is to develop strong, diverse, departmental and organizational leaders that represent excellence in performance and achievement.
The success of DHFS is directly affected by the quality, ethics and style of its leaders. It is imperative that leaders understand who they are and how they can inspire and develop their staffs. Campus and community leaders will provide presentations to assist in this process.
Participation in the DLI is voluntary and self-paced. Participants that complete 25 hours of Leadership Credit will receive a Certificate of Completion and a Medallion. Leadership Institute sessions will be scheduled through TX Class and participants will self-select sessions based in individual preference. Additional leadership credit can be earned using the Leadership Credit Form for programs, seminars, and other learning activities that are not listed in TX Class. A minimum of two hours of credit will be awarded using this process. Those wishing to participate in the Leadership Institute should discuss their interest with their supervisor for support.
