What is the key for leadership development in public organisations?
Leadership is vital to the public sector because of its positive impact on job performance and employee satisfaction and because it dictates the effectiveness of government and public agencies.
Leaders should exert maximum effort to understand employees and determine how best to support and motivate them. They should commit to managing change and honing participative management skills by proactively involving others in decision making. They should gain a clear grasp of obstacles to individual and organisational success and formulate solutions.
The younger generation should be educated about how active participation in governance enables them to solve their own problems, satisfy their needs and manage their lives, while making a difference in society. Working towards youth-friendly policies and positions is a good investment.
