The Company provides reasonable accommodation, barring undue hardships, for known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified applicants or employees with disabilities, including disabled veterans.

Leadership Programs

At Edison International, we value diversity at all employee levels. Thus the company offers leadership and mentoring opportunities to its employees by focusing on leadership competencies, including formal and informal mentoring to improve the company's business results. Listed below are a few of our formal leadership courses and programs at Southern California Edison.

Coaching for Leaders – Leaders gain the basic foundation to conduct effective coaching with direct reports that aligns with the SCE performance management framework. The course allows leaders to practice and enhance existing skills as well as gain new skills.

Delegating for Results - Managers are increasingly challenged with executing their departmental strategies faster and more effectively, utilizing fewer resources than in previous times. The focus of this course is to help managers assess their team’s capabilities and make intentional decisions about how they select, allocate, assign and follow up stretch assignments and responsibilities within their team.

Recognition Training for Leaders – Leaders explore the benefits of effective employee recognition and what the research reveals about the impact of recognition on employee performance and satisfaction, learn the FAST Recognition model, and practice concrete skills that will enhance their ability and confidence when recognizing their employees back in the workplace.

Situational Leadership - Managers learn a shared process, language, and model for building leadership. It is a program customized to employees’ individual goals and corporate goals. SLII® teaches leaders to do more than just respond to predictable situations through memorized skill application. It teaches leaders to analyze, diagnose, think, and apply leadership concepts effectively in any situation.
