The Kansas Department of Corrections and the Kansas Leadership Center are in the third year of a partnership that supports leadership development and change management within the department.

"We are entering our third year of a great partnership between KDOC and the Kansas Leadership Center (KLC). Within the last two years over 265 KDOC staff members have participated in the program," said Secretary of Corrections Jeff Zumda. 

Staff who participate gain understanding of the core principles of managing complex adaptive issues, knowing when to exercise leadership versus authority, interpreting events towards more solutions, assessing barriers to intervene effectively, building trust and courage, and managing themselves in challenging situations. This has been accomplished through a numerous avenues and programs both facilitated by the KLC teaching team and KDOC staff.

Staff development and training are focus areas within KDOC’s strategic plan, Pathway for Success. All staff are given opportunities to gain new skills for personal and professional advancement and to support the work they do with individuals served by KDOC.

"Through the partnership with KLC, our staff have opportunities to develop skills to lead in many situation, mobilize others in positive ways and create change for future success," Zmuda said. "Thank you to our staff development leaders and to those participating in this intensive leadership program."
