Leadership Year: Learning Café – Reserve leadership development opportunities

February 05, 2018

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke announced the DHS Leadership Year on October 1, 2017 –  a yearlong effort (FY18) to promote a culture of leadership excellence and highlight the importance of leadership at all levels. As part of the initiative, the Office of Leadership (CG-12C) will highlight leadership opportunities available, give the fleet tools and resources to support leaders/supervisors in effectively managing performance, and continue the leadership dialogue.

Are you a reservist looking for professional leadership development?

Master Chief Petty Officer Joe Melton will be highlighting leadership development opportunities for enlisted and officer Reserve members during the next Leadership Learning Café session on February 13. The session will be live, and it will be no longer than 30 minutes. You can access the session from your standard workstation by following the instructions below. We will also have a Q&A as part of the session.

We recognize that our Reserve members are a great part of the Coast Guard family, and we want to present all the opportunities available to YOU!

If you can’t make the presentation, don’t worry – will be recorded and posted on the Office of Leadership (CG-12C) website:

DATE: Tuesday, February 13

TIME: 1 p.m. (EST)
