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
