Commonwealth Secretariat Senior Leaders Forum "Leadership at the Centre"
DLP's Director of Research, Adrian Leftwich, will be speaking at the Commonwealth Secretariat's Senior Leaders Forum on the 15th November.
The event brings together public servants from around the Commonwealth to strengthen their roles in implementing policies and strategies for development in their country.
Through two forums – ‘Women Leaders for Development’ and ‘Leadership at the Centre for Senior Leaders across the Commonwealth’ - the Secretariat will work with public servants on improving their leadership skills to achieve national goals for development and change. The event also sees the launch of the Commonwealth Good Governance Yearbook 2011/12, which is a collection of writings from public service practitioners and experts in public administration and management.
In an afternoon session, Adrian Leftwich will address the issue of political leadership:
Leadership for democracy and good governance are central to the Commonwealth, and strong, effective and efficient public institutions are prerequisites to national development. What are the challenges of good governance facing Commonwealth countries? What are effective ways forward to strengthen public institutions so they can sustain Commonwealth values?
