DuPont Leadership Bootcamp Program
In 2020, the HR team in our Asian Pacific (AP) region launched a three-phase accelerated leadership development program called the Leadership Bootcamp program. The first phase focused on self-awareness, including customized interviews, a personalized overview of the program’s objectives and tools, and a three-way discussion with the participant, his or her program mentor, and the participant’s manager.
Phase Two was intended to be a four-day, in-person classroom learning, but was converted to eight virtual sessions due to the global pandemic. These sessions took place in large and small groups, using virtual interactive team-based simulations, presentations and assignments. Using their newly honed skills, participants also created action plans to solve real-world, market and business challenges and opportunities that we are facing in the AP region today.
In the third phase of the program, participants worked with their program mentors to plan their continued personal development, and to provide feedback that will help to refine the program and develop next steps for their business challenge action plans.
Throughout April and May in 2020, we made new webinars, training videos, multi-week wellness programs, online courses and reading materials available to help employees cope with the early days of quarantine. The programs focused on improving mental resilience, increasing physical activity, enhancing financial literacy, and information on healthy eating.
Whether it’s in meeting market- and business-specific needs, developing technical or leadership skills, achieving better health and safety outcomes or living our core values, our programs are there to support them.
Current Water & Protection leaders led a high-impact virtual experience with professional production and tailored content focusing on improving critical skills and behaviors that will empower young W&P talent to succeed in their roles and beyond.
