How Does the CPC Work? OR Be an Engaged Leader Employee – Starts with YOU
How Does the CPC Work Career Planning Cycle Process By design, the Career Planning Cycle (CPC) process builds upon the recurring and frequent supervisor/employee interaction facilitated by the Individual Development Plan (IDP) and feedback sessions. Individual Development Plan (IDP) / Goals The employee starts the CPC process by opting-in to receive career planning guidance. The levels of endorsement within the CPC Process are Supervisor, Local, MAJCOM and AF FM Development Team. With guidance, each level determines its recommendation and chooses to either “Address” the submission at their level or “Push” the submission to the next level.
What the CPC is NOT… • Mandatory • A way to get moved out of your current job • A replacement for a mentor • Performance feedback • A means to get promoted • A replacement to talking to your supervisor • A way for a supervisor to avoid tough conversations
Why Does It Matter to Me? • Helps YOU envision YOUR future goals • Guides YOU on where to start • Ensures YOU develop an achievable plan w/ leadership • Mentors YOU along the way
Who Should Enter the CPC? • Anyone who would like additional feedback on their career goals and aspirations • Anyone considering to apply for a developmental opportunity within the next 2 years (short / long-term) • Civilians currently in a long-term developmental program & scheduled to graduate within 2 years • Geo or Org Mobile within the next 2 years • Anyone on a Key Career Position (KCP) • All GS-15’s (and equivalents) • Retiring within the next 2 years Anyone Can Enter and Mobility IS NOT a Requirement
