The County of Sonoma Planning for Success employee training program is built on competencies identified by employees themselves as critical for success at each of the four County of Sonoma employment levels: Foundational, Supervisory, Managerial, and Executive.
The Planning for Success training program still provides you the opportunity to identify and take training to obtain or enhance specific competencies to enrich your career with the County.
Certifications are still available to anyone. The Professional Development Spiral shows the required classes for each certification level on one spiral and, on the other, the County’s Skills Development Electives.
Planning for Success was designed to provide the learning and practices you’ll need to succeed and the flexibility you want. You can still take a more traditional “climb-the-ladder-within-one-department” approach to your career or choose to accumulate knowledge and skills as you are motivated to learn them on an à la carte basis.
Training for the Executive Level is found in just two red ovals in Planning for Success: Executive Learning Programs customized to the Department and the situation and County-wide Succession Planning, both launching this year.
