    Emerging Leaders
    To provide another source of information for those aspiring to a leadership role, the Emerging Leaders of Southwestern Division developed a newsletter to help teach and inform. You will find commanders' thoughts about leadership and what it takes to be a good leader; information as how to locate reading, listening and viewing resources about leadership skills; and even articles about people that are now success stories.

    Corps History
    Mike Loesch, CELRD-CM-O, a co-author of this paper has been a part of the Corps NRM program for many years. While this paper is wider in scope than the NRM program, this paper will give new and old employees alike an understanding of the Corps History, Corps Organization and some basic processes.

    Employee Handbooks and Guidebooks
    Southwestern Division Employee Handbook - A good employee guide written for the Southwestern Division, but applicable across the Corps. Check with your local CPAC for policies in your region. Intranet site, may be restricted to mil. addresses.

    Results of Previous Surveys
    Training Needs of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Natural Resource Management Branch Personnel - In 1990, the Corps of Engineers surveyed NRM employees about perceived training needs and shortcomings in the training system at that time. The raw data of the survey results are provided.

    1997 NRMCDSC Career Development Survey - In December 1997, the most recent NRMCDSC survey was distributed. Since this survey was developed and the data analysis performed by Dr. Bonnie Bryson as a part of her doctoral research, many of the links provided here take you to excerpts of her dissertation. The author holds the copyright for this material. Within the agency, reproduction and use of the dissertation excerpts are encouraged, but reproduction and use outside the agency require prior written consent from Dr. Bonnie Bryson.
