Leading Self



Everyone is a leader - you do not have to be a supervisor or manager to lead at Texas A&M University. Following the progressive leadership development framework, the Leading Self leadership development program helps university employees build foundational leadership competencies to enable a common language, practice, and culture across the University community.

Competencies Being Developed

The Leading Self leadership development program focuses on six competencies:

Leading Self leadership development program badges awarded upon completion of each competency: Texas A&M Mission, Vision, and Values, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Diversity & Inclusion, Customer Service, Adapting to Change, Problem Solving & Process Improvement

Enroll Today!

Enroll in the Leading Self leadership development program today! To enroll, complete the Leading Self enrollment form.

The enrollment form requires your supervisor’s approval with an approval form uploaded in the enrollment process.

Enrollment forms are regularly reviewed. Employees will receive confirmation of their enrollment within three (3) business days, provided enrollment and supervisor approval forms are correct and complete. Enrollment and/or supervisor approval forms needing correction and/or completion will cause delay in the enrollment process.
