NCPC Em­pow­ers Ju­nior Su­per­vi­sors to Be­come Pro­duc­tive Lead­ers

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Aone-day work­shop was or­ga­nized for per­son­nel within the Depart­ment of Fi­nance, Eco­nomic Affairs and So­cial Se­cu­rity en­ti­tled ‘High Pro­duc­tiv­ity Lead­er­ship’. The work­shop, fa­cil­i­tated by the Na­tional Com­pet­i­tive­ness & Pro­duc­tiv­ity Coun­cil (NCPC), was held on Wed­nes­day Fe­bru­ary 10, 2016 at the Cus­toms and Ex­cise train­ing room.

The work­shop was at­tended by ap­prox­i­mately 20 par­tic­i­pants from var­i­ous de­part­ments within the Depart­ment of Fi­nance in­clud­ing In­land Rev­enue Depart­ment, Cus­toms & Ex­cise Depart­ment, Postal Ser­vices and the Ac­coun­tant Gen­eral’s Depart­ment. The trainees were given an in-depth overview on the main fac­tors af­fect­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity in the work­place and also fo­cused on their roles as pro­duc­tive change agents in their re­spec­tive units. The ses­sion was de­signed to pro­vide the nec­es­sary tools re­quired for the su­per­vi­sors to be bet­ter able to guide their teams to get the best re­sults out of avail­able re­sources.

Lead­er­ship un­de­ni­ably im­pacts on the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s pro­duc­tiv­ity, in par­tic­u­lar em­ployee out­comes. There­fore the ap­pro­pri­ate traits, styles, ac­tions and lead­ers’ in­flu­ence are crit­i­cal in en­sur­ing ef­fec­tive out­comes and lead­ing a team to suc­cess.

The ses­sion cov­ered a va­ri­ety of crit­i­cal ar­eas that im­pact the pro­duc­tiv­ity of a leader. Some of the main top­ics ex­plored were plan­ning, time man­age­ment, del­e­ga­tion, team build­ing, em­ployee de­vel­op­ment and em­ployee mo­ti­va­tion.

The ses­sions were highly in­ter­ac­tive and con­sisted of dis­cus­sions and train­ing ex­er­cises that em­pha­sized the con­cepts and tips cov­ered.

The NCPC sought to es­tab­lish a rap­port with the par­tic­i­pants and as­pires to eval­u­ate the ses­sion’s im­pact on their work. It is an­tic­i­pated that a se­cond ses­sion will en­sue to ex­plore other im­por­tant top­ics that im­pact on a leader’s pro­duc­tiv­ity and per­for­mance.
