Fulfilling DynCorp International’s focus on developing its leaders, DynCorp International team members working in DI’s Air Operations business recently met with the company’s chief learning officer, Steve Dwyer, and outside experts to participate in one-on-one leadership development training and group sessions.
In their training, leaders completed personal profiles, which identify factors that individuals can focus on to become better leaders in the workplace and beyond. Team members also gained insight by receiving feedback from colleagues, and comparing and contrasting different personality types and the different ways to interact to provide maximum performance for the company’s customers.
Through the leadership workshop, team members learned how to optimize work performance by creating customized growth plans to capitalize on strengths, enhancing self-awareness and raising emotional quotient – all while embracing DI’s core values.
“All DI employees’ actions are guided by our social contract, which encompasses our core values – We Serve, We Care, We Empower, We Perform and We Do the Right Thing. At the end of the day, that social contract is the ultimate litmus test for how our team members lead,” said Dwyer.
The workshop was part of a larger Senior Leadership Conference in which key leaders in DI’s Air Operations business identified challenges and identified ways to improve the business.
