Congratulations to all of us, the Army Civilian Corps and our leadership, for continuing to improve employee engagement! We exceed the federal government at large and are neck-in-neck with the other departments in DoD. Also, thank you for participating in the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS). If you have not already heard from your command and supervisory channels about your organization’s results and way ahead, expect to hear from them early in CY 2020, after the commands have been able to read your comments, analyze the results and develop action plans. Supervisors, please seek out and understand your organization’s results (hear your employee’s input), action those results, and ensure your employees know the action you have taken to address those concerns and to reinforce success.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll share some more information on the Army-level results of the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS). The purposes of these posts are to show results across the Army Civilian Corps, to provide an opportunity to share thoughts on the results, and to promote interest and awareness!

Command and CP offices participate in Employee Engagement (E2) teleconferences on a regular basis. Senior leaders, up to and including the most senior general officers and members of the senior executive service (SES), are personally interested and involved in taking actions to address employee concerns and reinforce successes identified in the FEVS.

Sometimes we need to think outside of the box to generate innovation and creativity around challenging tasks.

Consider trying out some of the steps in this Harvard Business Review article focused on increasing creativity through mindfulness.

“By cultivating milieus where employees are encouraged to be creative, they’re able to move past a mere focus on organizational efficiencies and to develop ways of working and thinking that haven’t been seen before.”

Congratulations to Mr. Marcus Muniz for completing the CES Intermediate Course this year!

Mr. Muniz is a wage supervisor (WS) professional at Corpus Christi Army Depot, TX. Marcus has been working at the depot for 15 years and began as a helper. He has worked his way up to branch chief and hopes to take on even greater responsibilities and make even more significant contributions in the future.

Here are some of his thoughts on the CES Intermediate Course:

After starting Phase 1 of the course I found it very beneficial. The course related to my everyday duties as a work lead and my interactions with others. Then came Phase 2 when I was able to interact with multiple other government employees going through the same training from all parts of the world. We participated in group settings, team building, sharing, and learning from experiences. I was also able to expand my professional network and make new friends.

The training I received from the CES Intermediate course was so beneficial at the time and was the reason I felt I became a better work leader. I was trained on how to effectively team build, and build trust in and with my team. Now that I have recently been promoted to a Branch Chief within the depot, I’m finding that all the topics that were covered in the CES Intermediate course are playing a big roll and helping me make better decisions, get more involved with employees, and just become a better more efficient and effective leader.

For all who are procrastinators and maybe even doubtful about the CES Intermediate course like I was, please give the course a chance. It will not disappoint - it will make you a good leader, and if you’re already a good leader it will make you a better more efficient leader.

"The next time you struggle with innovation, take a look at your constraints structure. Instead of blaming them, frame them as creative challenges. Tell your employees that constraints help by ensuring focus and direction, and ask them to take up the challenge."

You’re bright. You have good ideas, insights, and the ambition to take on more. But you aren’t getting the opportunities you want, and your manager has not been helpful. How do you get noticed by senior leadership without going over your boss’s head?

What can managers do to help employees combat the very natural tendency to put off for tomorrow what isn’t due today? Our latest research suggests a simple solution: have employees set aside time for work that is important but not urgent. We call this proactive time or pro-time."

ARMY SELF DEVELOPMENT HANDBOOK - Not just for Soldiers!

The Army Handbook for Self-Development is available at -https://usacac.army.mil/sites/default/files/documents/cal/SDev_Handbook20.pdf . While the authors use Sergeant Marco Santoni, a Soldier, in the examples throughout, the handbook is equally applicable to Army Civilians.

Here is an extract from the introduction to the handbook:
The Army accomplishes a wide array of missions in diverse and unusual circumstances around the world. At the same time, the Army is engaged in a massive and accelerated transformation that will infuse new organizations, technologies, and capabilities throughout the Army. To meet the recurring challenges, Army personnel must supplement institutional and organizational training and education with continuous, planned self-development.

Self-development is also important to achieving your personal and professional goals. Maybe you want to qualify for an advanced level in your career or for a different career track altogether. Maybe you lack skills or knowledge. Or, maybe there is something you’ve just always wanted to learn or become more knowledgeable about. Whatever the case, you can use the information and exercises in this Self-Development Handbook to set your direction on for self-development and help you take action.

Have you been waiting for us to post an announcement for developmental assignments?

We are currently reviewing our program and encourage CP29ers to work with their supervisors and Workforce Development (WFD) POCs to explore opportunities that are available within their organizations and/or at their locations.

CP29 will consider requests - both for placement opportunities and individuals seeking placement - but requests must be validated by your Activity Career Program Manager (ACPM). ACPMs are typically the Deputy to the Garrison Commander, Deputy Garrison Manager, Deputy Depot or Military Ocean Terminal Manager, or Chief of Staff (in other words, the senior civilian in your organization).

Please reach out to your WFD POC for more information and feel free to contact us with any questions at [email protected].

CP29 extends best wishes and deep appreciation to Ms. Diane Randon she departs her role as our Functional Chief Representative and HQDA Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, G-9 and transitions to her new role as Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, G-2 for the Army, another critical senior executive leadership position.

Ms. Randon is a staunch advocate for Army civilians and has been very engaged and influential in making CP29 what it is today.

We will certainly miss you, Ms. Randon!! Thank you for everything you have done for the CP29 community over the years!
