We Make Blue Go

Leadership Development

In Business and Finance, we are committed to the support and development of our leaders. This includes the managers, project managers, supervisors and directors who lead our staff. We also see leadership as an attitude that can be demonstrated by any staff member, at any level.

In the B&F Strategic Framework Goal Four: An Engaged Organization: Listen Learn and Lead, we have implemented specific initiatives that identify and expand on best practices and further leadership development and engagement.

Some of these initiatives include:

The B&F Leadership Academy focuses on developing the leadership competencies and capacities necessary for future senior leadership in Business and Finance.

It Starts With You logo

It Starts With You
The It Starts with You program was developed by and for B&F Supervisors. We did some research about ourselves and learned that supervisors are the key to satisfied B&F staff (and therefore satisfied customers). More importantly, we learned that there are very simple, actionable behaviors B&F supervisors can take to increase staff satisfaction.
