St. Vincent and the Grenadines Hosts Leadership Development Programme for Caribbean Public Service Leaders

March 05 2018 - 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 third face-to-face module for Cohort 11 in its Leadership Development Programme (LDP). The module is being held from March 5 - 9, 2018 at the Beachcombers Hotel in St. Vincent, and it follows the first two modules of the cohort which were held in Saint Lucia and Grenada, respectively.

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-three (23) twenty-four Deputy Permanent Secretaries/Deputy CEOs/Directors and officers of comparable rank from the Region.

The theme for this module is Leading through Others Against this background, participants will focus on inspiring, influencing and engaging others with a view to improving stakeholders’ relationships, decision-making and results.

Prior to the start of this module, CLP’s Regional Project Manager, Dr. Lois Parkes and

Executive Director of the Caribbean Centre for Development Administration (CARICAD), Mr. Devon Rowe, participated in some key stakeholder engagements. These included meetings with the Cabinet Secretary - Ms. Kattian Barnwell, Acting Chief Personnel Officer - Mrs. Arlene Regisford-Sam and Director of Training - Mr. Myccle Burke, among other senior leaders in the public service of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. During these meetings, there were discussions about the sustainability plans for leadership development programming, the role of Caribbean Centre for Development Administration (CARICAD) as the future host of the programme and the on-going leadership and capacity building needs of the country.

It is worthy to note that several Vincentian 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.
