The Leadership Certification Program (LCP) provides new and existing leaders with the skills necessary to effectively lead at Brown. To become certified, leaders must first attend An Orientation to Leadership at Brown. The LCP is open to all managers who have at least 1 full-time direct report.  All newly hired and promoted managers are automatically enrolled in the program and are encouraged to begin within six months. Existing leaders are also encouraged to certify to refresh their skills and provide valuable insights while participating in the program. For more information about enrollment in the program, contact [email protected].

Information for Managers

Managers of program participants play a critical role in the successful transfer of skills to the workplace. Throughout the LCP, managers receive information about the program to position the participant for success.

Here are some tips to support your participant during their certification:

  • Time: Work together to plan release time to participate in the program.
  • Accountability: Hold the participant accountable for consciously applying the strategies and tools learned.
  • Guidance and Encouragement: Overcome barriers that may prevent the participant from applying the skills and measuring progress. Provide timely feedback from first-hand observations and acknowledge the impact of their success.
  • Tools: Use performance management tools, processes, and weekly meetings to review and document your participant's leadership development progress.
