Custom Leadership Development and Training Solutions
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management offers agencies a full range of leadership resources in addition to our training services for individual Government leaders.
- Custom Solutions If your front line, mid-level or senior leaders need customized training or your organization requires a new focus on succession management or mission alignment, OPM's Custom Solutions team can help design a solution that meets your needs.
- Leadership Coaching Individual coaching provides a sustained partnership between an individual and a coach to enhance the individual’s effectiveness in his or her organization. OPM’s Custom Solutions Team will work with you to craft a coaching program that benefits the organization and the individual leader.
Is your organization facing an immediate leadership challenge? Has a new initiative or reorganization forced you to find a new approach? Do you want to implement a new strategy to improve your organization's performance?
The Office of Personnel Management's Custom Solutions Team works with agencies to develop solutions tailored to specific organizational needs. We can design a solution to satisfy a one-time need or form a strategic partnership to address ongoing challenges.
Drawing from decades of experience helping government agencies resolve human capital challenges, OPM's Custom Solutions staff works with agency leaders to:
- Understand and articulate specific problems
- Identify desired outcomes
- Determine context and constraints
- Design tailored programs and delivery frameworks
- Execute leadership and workforce development strategies
Many agencies turn to Custom Solutions because they have specific developmental needs; want to ensure a consistent developmental framework; are interested in fostering intra-agency networking and team-building; or have internal resources available that help to defray training overhead. Our customers are high-performing aspiring leaders, supervisors, managers and executives who attend our courses to enhance their leadership and management skills. They may do so at any stage of their career from first line supervisor through the Senior Executive Service.
In all cases, the OPM Custom Solutions Team develops and delivers products and services that help develop visionary leaders to transform government by providing:
- Custom workshops that build strong leadership competencies
- Team Development Programs that help work groups work more effectively - especially across organizational or geographic barriers
- Facilitated planning programs that focus on mission, budget, technology, strategic planning, performance improvement and other critical issues

- Executive coaching services to support individual development at critical junctures, or to enhance overall performance
