Leadership Development

Organizational Development offers six leadership development programs for employees. These include The Chancellor's Next Generation Leadership Academy, Lone Star College Leadership Academy, Leadership Education Advancement Program (LSC-LEAP), Rising Star Institute, and Career Development Coaching.

The Chancellor's Next Generation Leadership Academy

The Chancellor's Next Generation Leadership Academy is designed to develop a new generation of higher education professionals prepared to lead by understanding learning analytics, educational ecosystems, design thinking, entrepreneurial partnerships, and organizational culture. This program is delivered as a partnership with Civitas Learning.

Lone Star College Leadership Academy

As Lone Star College's premier Leadership Development program, The Academy is committed to growing, supporting and celebrating Lone Star College’s current and emerging leaders by encouraging Fellows to lead from where they are. The Academy prepares individuals for future service to Lone Star College, our students, and our communities through a curriculum that inspires a personal leadership transformation. The program focuses on philosophical and theoretical aspects of leadership, collaboration, problem solving, strategic thinking, and personal awareness.  The American Association of Community College's (AACC) Core Competencies for Community College Leaders are foundational to the program's curriculum.

Leadership Education Advancement Program

The Lone Star College Leadership Education Advancement Program (LSC-LEAP) is a year-long leadership and career development program for non-exempt staff members across Lone Star College. Participants engage in a curriculum that focuses on personal leadership development while also providing a focus on career advancement. Ultimately, the goal of LSC-LEAP is to provide non-exempt staff with engaging learning opportunities that lead to growth and career advancement at Lone Star College. LSC-LEAP empowers participants to lead from their current position.

Rising Star Institute

The Rising Star Institute is a foundational leadership development program designed to educate participants on the many Lone Star College cultural and operational strategies. Participants are empowered with specific tools and decision-making strategies to reach new heights as a high-performing employee at Lone Star College.

Career Development Coaching

The Career Development coaching experience is structured to provide coaching opportunities for Lone Star College employees. Coaches are selected and paired based upon both the coach and coachee’s role at Lone Star College, career interests, and professional experience. By participating in this program, employees will have the opportunity to develop themselves and impact their colleagues and the college in a meaningful way.

Leadership Development Alumni Association

After successfully graduating from The Academy, LSC-LEAD, LSC-LEAP, The Chancellor's Next Generation Leadership Academy, or Rising Star Institute, employees automatically become members of the Leadership Development Alumni Association. Each year, alumni have opportunities to improve their leadership skills through professional development, networking, and community outreach.
