Army developing future leaders through the SETM program
Today’s post was written by Audra Calloway public affairs officer […]

Today’s post was written by Audra Calloway public affairs officer of the Civilian Workforce Transformation Program

 

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

-          John Quincy Adams

 

The Army is committed to developing Civilian leaders with the vision, skills and motivation to guide the future force.

To help identify and develop high-potential Civilians, the Army has created the Senior Enterprise Talent Management program, also known as SETM.

The SETM program board selects Civilian applicants in grades GS-14 and GS-15 (or equivalent) who are considered the “best of the best” and prepares them for positions of increased responsibility through senior-level educational and developmental experiences.

Through the SETM program, the Army is able to find Civilian leaders who are capable of leading change and people, getting results, possessing business acumen, building coalitions and providing a joint service perspective.

SETM has four components. Find out if one of them could be right for you:

Enterprise Placement Program

The Enterprise Placement Programis open to GS-15 applicants or equivalent employees. Applicants will undergo review by the SETM Board and, if accepted, are designated as Army Enterprise Employees (AEE) and offered reassignment to positions of greater responsibility across the Army.

Prior to accepting an assignment, AEEs will be required to sign a mobility agreement, if the position is outside their local commuting area.

SETM – Temporary Duty

For the SETM-Temporary Duty, GS-14 and GS-15 Civilians are temporarily assigned to a special command-nominated project through a centrally-funded TDY, not to exceed 179 days.

These special projects help Army senior Civilians develop their core competencies and provide strategic-level experience.

Past SETM TDY projects have included creating budget plans, developing and staffing Army Regulations, writing strategic plans and updating labor programs.

Senior Service College

Through the SETM program, GS-14 or GS-15 applicants are able to compete for allocated seats at the Army War College or the Dwight D. Eisenhower School for National Security and Resource Strategy. Senior Service College (SSC) develops students to assume strategic-level leadership roles in the joint, interagency, intergovernmental and multinational environments. SSC attendance is designed to expand a student’s knowledge of the national security mission and strengthen understanding of the challenges that DoD senior leaders face.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are placed in duty positions intended to leverage the knowledge gained at SSC.

Mobility and continuation of service agreements are required to apply for a residency position. Distance learning applicants are only required to sign a continuation of service agreement.

Defense Senior Leader Development Program

The Defense Senior Leader Development Program (DSLDP) is DoD’s premier leadership development program for GS-14 and GS-15 or equivalents. It is a two-year program designed to develop the enterprise-wide perspective needed to lead organizations in the joint interagency and multinational environment. DSLDP includes attendance at another service’s Senior Service College, leadership seminars and a follow-on developmental assignment.

Mobility and continuation of service agreements are required to apply for DSLDP. Executive Core Qualification write-ups are also a requirement for DSDLP.

Applications for SETM programs must be submitted electronically through the Senior Enterprise Talent Management System (SETMS). Application information can be found on the Army Senior Enterprise Talent Management website at https://www.csldo.army.mil/Index.aspx

Raven operators train to strike hard
SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, HAWAII -- Picture a hot summer day in Afghanistan, and a squad of Soldiers assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team preparing to convoy to their next checkpoint. Usually, the squad has to mentally prepare for the unknown but the advancement of technology works in their favor. The unit is fortunate enough to have a Raven operator, who deploys the unmanned aerial vehicle before the unit begins to travel. With 360 degrees of surveillance, the Raven's camera can observe enemy soldiers staged for an ambush. The Soldiers are able to avoid a firefight and ultimately save lives and equipment. This is just an example of how crucial the Raven can be to a unit's mission.
