Executive Excellence a Training and Development Program for Correctional Executives.


The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement for a 15-month period to begin no later than September 15, 2013. This project will be a cooperative agreement and will involve working under the direction of NIC’s Deputy Director to develop modify and enhance a competency based, blended modality training curriculum that follows the framework outlined in “Correctional Leadership Competencies for the 21st Century.” The framework has defined competencies at the executive level and is designed to meet a significant unfilled leadership development need for individuals the field of corrections who have demonstrated the potential to be the chief executive officer at the state, local or federal level. The curriculum that is currently in place is exceptional, but could always be improved upon. The content stresses leadership skill building, exposure to ethical and value based issues, self-awareness, strategic thinking, team oriented performance, effective decision making, executive visioning, mission and agenda setting, executive planning, politics of corrections both internally and externally as well the dynamics of creating collaborative partnerships in the external environment. Finally the program strives to develop strategic and critical thinking through a variety of experiential activities and group sessions. This project will be a collaborative venture with the NIC’s Academy and Administrative Divisions.
