Title 5: Administrative Personnel
§412.202 Systematic training and development of supervisors, managers, and executives.
All agencies must provide for the development of individuals in supervisory, managerial and executive positions, as well as individuals whom the agency identifies as potential candidates for those positions, based on the agencies' succession plans. Agencies also must issue written policies to ensure they:
(a) Design and implement leadership development programs integrated with the employee development plans, programs, and strategies required by 5 CFR 410.201, and that foster a broad agency and Governmentwide perspective;
(b) Provide training within one year of an employee's initial appointment to a supervisory position and follow up periodically, but at least once every three years, by providing each supervisor and manager additional training on the use of appropriate actions, options, and strategies to:
(1) Mentor employees;
(2) Improve employee performance and productivity;
(3) Conduct employee performance appraisals in accordance with agency appraisal systems; and
(4) Identify and assist employees with unacceptable performance.
(c) Provide training when individuals make critical career transitions, for instance from non-supervisory to manager or from manager to executive. This training should be consistent with assessments of the agency's and the individual's needs.
