Saint Lucia Hosts Leadership Development Programme for Caribbean Public Service Leaders

December 04 2017 - by The Caribbean Leadership Project

The Caribbean Leadership Project (CLP), funded by the Government of Canada, and executed by the Canada School of Public Service, is convening the first face-to-face module for Cohort 11 in its Leadership Development Programme (LDP). The module is being held from December 4 - 8, 2017, at the Coco Palm Resort in Castries, Saint Lucia and it follows the virtual launch of the cohort which was held in October. 

The overall purpose of this LDP is to support public service leaders in developing their capacity to contribute more effectively to regional integration, economic growth and gender-sensitive public sector reform. In this regard, this cohort comprises twenty-four (24) twenty-four Deputy Permanent Secretaries/Deputy CEOs/Directors and officers of comparable rank from the Region.

The theme for this module is Leading Self: Courage, Confidence & Authenticity. Against this background, participants will focus on developing a greater understanding of self, beginning with what awareness, competencies and strategies are required to develop, strengthen, recognize, appreciate and learn in order to provide effective leadership that serves a wider purpose.  

The LDP is being delivered in a multi-module, experiential and blended learning format. In keeping with the CLP’s commitment to promote regional integration, these senior public leaders will travel to a different participating country for each of the four face-to-face modules. The second face-to-face module for this cohort will be held in Grenada in January 2018.

It is worthy to note that several Saint Lucian public service officials have benefited from the CLP’s Leadership Development Programme. By participating in this LDP, participants are expected to advance regional integration and economic development by bringing practical learning to the workplace and developing a network of trusted colleagues during and beyond the programme.

The countries participating in the Project are: Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad & Tobago.  The regional organisations participating in this cohort are the CARICOM Competition Commission and the Caribbean Court of Justice.
