The Advanced Classified Leaders Program provides voluntary professional development to classified staff who are committed to the inclusion of all members of a diverse Long Beach community. This opportunity is available only to graduates of the Aspiring Human Resource Leaders or Business Leaders programs.
Support includes in-person workshops and digital, "on-the-go" resources to be completed asynchronously. Site visits for support with implementation of resources are available. Participants will develop a personal vision, mission, and "brand". They will implement two types of coaching. Participants will also learn how to develop two-way systems of communication with stakeholders, as well as demonstrate an understanding of how to build capacity within teams. Workshops will also include strategies on building systems for conflict resolution and celebration within a team. Job interview skills will be covered.
Advanced Classified Leaders workshops are designed to provide coaching and leadership skills for applicants, but are not formal applications for a role or a position.
