GIS – 19 August, 2015 : Transformational change and leadership was the leading theme of a talk held yesterday at Sir Harilal Vaghjee Hall, Port Louis at the initiative the Ministry of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms in collaboration with the National Productivity and Competitiveness Council (NPCC). Mr Justin Allen, a Principal of the Result Based Leadership Group (RBL) Group and the Head of Operations for RBL’s Leadership Practice, gave the keynote address.
The objective of the talk was to move ahead in the fields of Transformational Change, Leadership and Human Resources by connecting leaders with practical tools, leading edge theory, and opportunities to learn from each other.
During his presentation, Mr Allen outlined the importance of talents and people within an organisation adding that no strategy will work unless there is the foundation of people, of talent and of leadership. He also discussed the element of change and how people normally resist changes. Through a brainstorming session, Mr Allen talked about solutions and elements that could be integrated so that change happens.
As outlined in the Government Programme 2015-2019, NPCC is expected to develop a Mauritian Leadership brand that will be applicable to all sectors of the economy as a means to enhance productivity and economic growth. Consequently, the NPCC is collaborating with the United States-based RBL team which comprises Mr Allen to measure the current leadership capacity in Mauritius, define the Mauritian Leadership Brand and develop leadership capabilities to bridge existing gaps.
RBL is facilitating a series of consultations with relevant stakeholders to craft the Mauritian Leadership Brand based on best practices and results of the survey conducted few months ago. The collaboration between the two institutions will help build an overall roadmap to ensure execution, geared towards positioning Mauritius as a leader in the region and achieving long-term economic growth for the betterment of one and all; provide research-based insights, skills, knowledge and tools that Mauritian leaders need to leverage the talent of their people and achieve spectacular results.
