The Division continued to support staff Leadership Development by submitting applicants for the Competitive Learning Courses. One Division staff member was chosen to attend the Building Foundations for Visionary Leadership which is scheduled for June 2012. Two (2) Division staff members participated in the 2012 Northern Leadership Development Academy (LDA). At the LDA, one of the teams presented the Indiana Division’s signed charter as a potential "best practice" for the FHWA. The charter is a Code of Conduct for How the Division will work together. This "best practice" was presented to the Executive Director as a way to extend the significance of the Agency’s corporate values.
The Indiana Division hosted the Northern LDA and the Northern Human Resources Committee Meeting. These meetings were supported by staff coordinating logistics such as establishing meeting location, providing necessary equipment, arranging hotels, etc.
Division staff identified the top 9 risks for PY 2013 and achieved at least 94% of our Unit Plan initiatives.
