Shreveport has launched its first “Mentoring Academy.” According to a news release from the city, the aim is to add depth to the training for those employees striving to become the city’s future leaders. The academy is Human Resources’ response to the city’s need to establish a more deliberate approach to succession planning. Employees had to apply for the academy and meet certain criteria in order to be eligible. Nearly 100 employees applied, but only 40 were selected. Those folks will be trained in a variety of areas — like leadership, budgeting and ethics — as well as the operations of local government. Participants will attend two three-hour courses each month, with graduation scheduled six months later.
