KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) — The Management Institute for National Development (MIND) will be hosting its Regional Public Sector Leadership Development Conference at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel from July 19 to 20.

The two-day event will be held under the theme: ‘Adaptive Public Sector Leadership, Changing MINDsets, Challenging Assumptions, Creating Transformation’.

“The conference will challenge the mindsets of our public sector leaders, ensuring that they understand the environment they currently operate in and how the space is changing as we move towards national development,” said Acting Manager for Customised Programmes Delivery and Administration, Latoya Swaby-Anderson.

She was speaking at a Think Tank held on June 27 at the JIS head office in Kingston.

Swaby-Anderson informed that the conference will include a think tank round table for Permanent Secretaries and Chief Executive Officers (CEO); plenary sessions; a panel discussion; and presentation of the Public Life Award for leadership.

There will also be workshops covering topics such as: ‘the benefits of being an adaptive leader’; ‘how to shake up your organisation in the quest for talent’; ‘professional hurt’ and ‘how to get multi-generations to work effectively with one another’. Sessions will begin at 8:30 am and end at 4:00 pm over the two days.

MIND is the Government of Jamaica’s public service training and leadership development institute.

The entity plays a crucial role in the transformation and modernisation of the public sector by providing quality leadership development options and management training.
