MetadataShow full item record
Using a systematic, narrative literature review and interviews of subject matter experts, this study investigates onboarding practices for civilian leaders. The study describes and presents a model for onboarding. The model shows how onboarding activities should align with the organizations’ goals for leadership and with the specific objectives of the onboarding activity. Recommended activities for developing transformational leaders include stakeholder engagement, mentoring, and leader assimilation. Interviews indicated that participating industry organizations did not align their activities with modern leadership goals but had a number of recommendations for improving the implementation of their onboarding programs.
