New Management Instruction EL-710-2010-3, EAS Leadership Development

Management Instruction (MI) EL-710-2010-3, EAS Leadership Development, is now available on PolicyNet and is effective immediately.

This MI establishes policies and procedures for devel­oping the leadership capabilities of Executive and Admin­istrative (EAS) level employees. The Postal Service™ is able to fulfill its mission of providing reliable, affordable, universal service through strong leadership — an element that remains critical for our continued success. The Postal Service must continue to leverage the skills and talents of its diverse workforce.

To address this business imperative, the Postal Service has implemented EAS Leadership Development (ELD) as its structured approach to identifying and developing future leaders for key managerial positions in each district. Employees accepted into this program as ELD participants have the opportunity to develop their managerial and func­tional/technical skills through virtual learning, on-the-job development, feedback, and coaching.

MI EL-710-2010-3 is available on the Postal Service PolicyNet website:
