Robins is gearing up to embark on the fiscal 2017 cycle of the Emerging Supervisor Development Program with a series of informational briefings beginning Feb. 1.  ESDP is a highly competitive AFSC initiative used to develop future first-level supervisors who possess technical expertise and have demonstrated leadership competencies. 

The program affords high-potential employees the opportunity to obtain formal and experiential leadership training prior to placement into a supervisory role. During the fiscal 2016 cycle, Robins had more than 250 employees from Air Force Sustainment Center and participating associate units self-nominate for this leadership development program. 

After a dynamic rating, endorsement and interview process, 37 applicants were selected.  Selectees have 12 months to complete all training requirements and are scheduled to graduate in August.

For fiscal 2017, AFSC and 461st Air Control Wing personnel have opted to participate in the program.  To ensure program requirements, processes and lessons learned are adequately socialized, there will be a series of supervisor and employee specific informational briefings.  Attendance is highly encouraged for supervisors because they may be required to participate in the endorsement process and any employee who may be interested in self-nominating.   

Editor’s note: Complete program information can be obtained from AFSCI 36-101, AFSC Civilian Leader and Supervisor Development Continuum.  Organizational points of contact have been appointed for each organization.  For more information, contact the 78th Air Base Wing Force Development Flight program managers at DSN 497-4887 or DSN 472-3403.
