Strategic Leadership Development Programmes

Preamble

Today’s world is characterized by rapid changes in technology, a more diverse workforce, changes in government regulations, worldwide competition, and the growing complexity of things in general. To meet these challenges, the government has made a commitment to provide timely and quality public services to achieve national development goals. In order to achieve sustained reforms and improvements in performance, effective leadership is required at all levels to spearhead any change effort. It is at the top management level-where the “big picture” vision is made and is thereafter cascaded and transformed into day-to-day meaning. It is therefore necessary to develop and enhance leadership competencies especially at senior levels of Government. Leadership development programs require training, which aims at improving service delivery and achieving targeted results for Kenyans on a consistent long-term basis.
