Ogun State Civil Service Commission has organised its second edition of the year 2018 quarterly in-house training programme, with the theme “Leadership for Effective Service Delivery”.
Delivering a lecture on the theme, the guest Lecturer, Barr. Ayomide Abraham, described leadership skills as the capacity to solve problems and the ability to stretch individuals thinking to meet particular needs and the organizational set goals.
According to him, “in the chain of service delivery, every role is important right from the gate man to the higher ranking officer and each person must display leadership skills at all levels, in order to achieve the corporate goal for service delivery. Whoever has a genuine desire to make a difference and committed to doing so is a leader, irrespective of age, education, social or economic status.
“Your leadership begins by being excellent in your current role, we all need to start demonstrating leadership regardless of title. To succeed, everyone must see themselves as part of leadership team. You don’t need formal authority to lead anyone only a desire to be involved and the commitment to making a positive difference”, Abraham stated.
In his welcome address, Commissioner 1 in the State Civil Service Commission, Alahaji Surajudeen Olusesi said the training programme was part of measures to promote effective leadership skills at all levels among the State Civil Servants, which he said would sustain quality service delivery of workers.
One of the participants, a Director from Ogun State Emergency Management Authority (OGUNSEMA), Abdul Hakeem Ashimi commended the Commission for organizing the training, saying it would keep enhancing the productivity of workers at their various agencies.
