Dallas County announces Management Academy inaugural class

The Dallas County Management Academy serves to establish a pool of employees who are highly qualified and eligible to become our next generation of leaders. 

“Developing future leaders for Dallas County is a top priority,” County Administrator Darryl Martin said. “In the coming years, we will be faced with a number of key retirements. By investing in the organization’s top talent, we are setting ourselves up for success.” 

The nine-month, competency-based leadership development program will allow Dallas County employees to expand their knowledge and develop critical-thinking skills to enhance the organization as a whole. The program consists of nine, full-day class sessions, the formulation and completion of an Individualized Development Plan and self-study and will conclude with a graduation ceremony in June 2020.
