Leadership Workshops Gain Momentum

Heads of Tertiary Institutions, Local Councils and State Owned Enterprises are meeting in Freetown to explore ways of improving leadership skills to achieve positive results in the effective delivery of services nation-wide.

The three day exercise is part of a series of leadership training workshops coordinated by the Performance Management and Service Delivery Directorate at State House, for the efficient implementation of the Agenda for Prosperity.

Senior Public Official and former Head of the Anti-corruption Commission, Valesius Collier, who is chairing the second leadership workshop encouraged participants to imbibe the culture of the efficient delivery of services to the public, through transparency, accountability and effective leadership of state institutions.

State House Chief of Staff, Dr. Richard Konteh made a perssionate plea for better collaboration, coordination and team work, so as to achieve the mandates of various institutions, within the specified time frames. The motivation of staff, he said, will achieve the targeted goals, noting that any missing link will cause serious problems. He therefore implored participants to work collectively to fulfill their various responsibilities.

Educationist and Diplomat, Prof. Joe Pemagbi observed that leaders should have the drive to succeed, which should be reflected in their actions adding that motivation and team work will foster the needed change.

During an interactive session, the Professor urged participants to be dedicated to their work in order to achieve the needed change in Sierra Leone. “We can never achieve the envisaged change in our work which should be relevant to the prevailing circumstances”, he said.
