Leadership Competencies and Resource Guide

Leadership Competencies and Resource GuideThe Voices of the Staff network team for Leadership Development reviewed U-M specific resources during 2009-10 to re-organize the University of Michigan’s Organizational Competency model and develop a framework of presentation that could easily be understood and applied by U-M staff, supervisors, managers, directors and executives. This guide is the result of that effort. In it, you will find recommended resources available both inside and outside of the university for developing or enhancing leadership competency.

The VOICES of the Staff Leadership Development team will focus on identifying and developing innovative approaches that promote leadership development as a strategy for positive impact on employee engagement. This strategy will promote and foster effective and productive working relationships between employees and supervisors, and the engagement of leaders at all levels within the University environment.


To explore and engage around the selected topic of Leadership Development by:

  • Listening to the experiences of staff and supervisors; identifying challenges and opportunities to help build positive outcomes and experiences for the U-M community.
  • Providing advice about how best to address the disconnect between employees and leaders at all levels and how best to leverage leadership opportunities throughout the university so that employees can experience “leaders walking the talk.”
  • Learning about the current best practices in leadership development.
  • Understanding the current U-M approaches to leadership development and the strengths and limitation of these approaches.
  • Providing input and feedback on best practices for training programs and succession planning.
  • Serving as a sounding board for new initiatives or strategies.
  • Finding ways to share what is learned with the wider staff community.
