Leadership Development Program

Leadership Development and Mentoring are important to the ERDC

One of ERDC’s key priorities is to invest in its employees and develop future leaders through training and development activities as part of the ERDC Leadership Development Program (LDP). LDP provides ERDC federal employees with the opportunity to refine their leadership skills by applying them through direct interaction with ERDC leadership. Participation in the LDP also provides useful experience if an employee wishes to apply for Corps-wide leadership development activities.


Coaching and mentoring are essential to the success of a learning culture, and the development of leaders at all levels. Mentoring  at ERDC benefits employees and enhances their professional careers and contributes to job satisfaction, growth and success.
