By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation, and Poverty Alleviation last week hosted a training for mid-level managers in the ministry.
Eighteen mid-level managers participated in the week-long training which equipped them with the skills needed to improve their leadership and supervisory skills.
The workshop theme entitled, “Leading from the Middle,” was facilitated by Dr. Lois Parkes, Regional Project Manager of the Caribbean Leadership Project.
Dr. Parkes has twenty years of experience in various human resources roles in Jamaica including the Office of the Prime Minister, the Office of the Cabinet, and the Office of the Services Commissions for the Public Service of Jamaica.
During the workshop, Parkes introduced a variety of topics to the social workers, supervisors and project managers to improve their leadership and ability to supervise staff.
Among the skills taught were team dynamics, coaching, delegating, having challenging conversations, and transforming service culture among others.
The “Leading from the Middle” Workshop forms part of a project undertaken by the Ministry to build the capacity of its staff to better serve the public.
