KIGALI - Close to 50 senior managers from various private and public institutions, yesterday began a two-day strategic leadership course in Kigali.
The training is conducted by Dr. Mike Armour from Strategic Leadership Development International (SLDI), referred to as "one of America's foremost leadership authorities".
SLDI is a US-based organisation that provides executive coaching and mentoring, leadership training, team building, facilitation services, and business consulting for companies large and small.
Speaking to The New Times yesterday, Joseph Nyaisa, the Executive Secretary of SLDI, said that the training aims at equipping leaders with skills and knowledge to practise the right style of leadership in every situation.
“Since Rwanda has set a target of vision 2020, we want these leaders to be result-oriented and fully align their institutions’ strategy, vision, and values with the government’s vision,” he said.
Nyaisa pointed out that the leaders are expected to grasp the knowledge and share it with people in their respective institutions in order to be part of the development process.
Key points in the leadership training include how to build high-trust teams, keep the team riveted on excellence, effectiveness, and results, engage people in ways that inspire and motivate them, among other things.
