Effective Leadership for Good Governance
January 28 – 30, 2010
MDI Campus, Gurgaon
Why You Should Attend?
Effective leadership is one of the key drivers for meeting the challenges of good governance in democratic societies. This programme focuses
on participants’ professional needs and challenges with regard to this crucial determinant of their performance in delivering good governance
to citizens. The course offers the opportunity for developing competencies for steering structural changes taking place in public services and
thus creating a mind-set of citizen-centric governance leading to transparency, accountability and responsiveness in carrying out the functions
of government.
A few takeaways for the participants will be:
•	 Appreciating	the	idea	of	good	governance;
•	 Understanding	of	how	to	create	a	change	management	strategy;
•	 Learning	leadership	skills	to	increase	their	organizations’	efficiency	and	effectiveness;	
•	 Innovative	ways	of	looking	at	and	solving	old	problems;	and	
•	 Development	of	citizen-centric	mind	set	to	their	governance	responsibilities.

In an age of rapid changes ensued by processes of globalization, the nation-states across the world are under constant pressure to fulfill
citizens’ expectations. The challenge is to reinvent the government procedures so that delivery of public services is improved across the
activity areas where government intervention is necessary. The citizen-centric governance and quality in public service are the new buzz
words across traditional bureaucracies. The poly-centric vision of the state is bringing about structural transformation which needs the
development of new competencies in government officials, public managers, and executives of public sector undertakings.
