Civilian Leadership Development (CLD) follows a structured four-tiered approach to developing civilian leaders. The CLD focuses on deliberate leader development through progressive education and training that aligns with the Department of Defense (DoD) Civilian Leader Development Continuum.
Tier 1: Online Leadership Development Courses
LLI Online Leadership Courses provide independent leadership development studies at your convenience that are aligned with the DoD leadership development competencies. Leadership development online courses are available on MarineNet for Civilian Marines.
Tier 2: Local Leadership Training Programs
These local area decentralized programs are managed at bases and stations under the auspices and support of Human Resources Development Strategic Advisors (HRDSA's).
Tier 3: LeJeune Leadership Institute Seminars
The Civilian Leadership Development Seminars are three-day courses that focus on individual leadership development concepts. Lead Self and Lead Teams are the seminars that are currently being taught at installations.
Tier 4: Centrally Managed Civilian Leadership Courses
Centrally Managed Civilian Leadership Courses are developmental programs or courses for Civilian Marine employees starting at GS-4 through GS-15 or equivalent grade levels. They are either centrally funded by LeJeune Leadership Institute, DoD, DoN, National Defense University, Office of Civilian Human Resources, individual Command Components or a combination of funding sources.
