Project Update

The roster of LDP alumni doubled during the past quarter as the second cohort (fondly known as the Historic Exceptional Cohort 2 or HEC2) joined their colleagues from Cohort 1 to swell the ranks of alumni to forty-eight. Several of the participants from the inaugural cohort travelled to Saint Lucia for the leadership symposium which was followed by a strategic planning session for the nascent Caribbean Leadership Network. At the conclusion of the session, a number of the HEC2 participants were joined by their colleagues from Cohort 1 to form an expanded interim steering committee tasked with finalizing the Network's vision, mission and initial work plan. From Saint Lucia it was on to Grenada to launch Cohort 3 of the LDP. Click here to read more >>

Maximising Economic Growth - A Priority of CARICOM

The CARICOM Heads of Government in addressing economic growth at their 34th Regular Meeting in Trinidad and Tobago in 2013, agreed to deepen the regional framework for growth and development through the pursuit of a development strategy which engenders inclusiveness of all stakeholders  which would lift the knowledge base, and innovative and entrepreneurial capacity of CARICOM nationals to engage in competitive, higher value-added economic activities. Towards this end, they mandated that a Commission on the Economy is established, and it is advanced in the work of compiling specific recommendations to address the economic challenges facing the Community.

Leadership Bright Spot In Grenada

As part of its Leadership Development Programme (LDP), the Caribbean Leadership Project is committed to examine "bright spots" - areas of leadership and public sector management that are working extremely well in the Region. In this regard, during Cohort 3's first module that was held in Grenada, LDP participants visited local organisations which have successfully demonstrated effective leadership in complex settings. One such organisation was the Grenada's Passport & Immigration Office. In this issue of CLP Connect we explore why this organisation is indeed a leadership bright spot.Click here to read more >>
