Management skills are critical to service delivery across sectors. These skills are all too often not given the prominence they ought. Having identified a skill gap in this area and in keeping with the need for continuous professional training, AGA-Africa Programme in collaboration with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP)-Kenya, organized a 5-day Management Skills Training virtual workshop. This was the second Management Skills Training and it came on the heels of a similar successful training held in collaboration with the National Prosecution Authority of Zambia in September 2020.
The workshop was aimed at equipping ODPP officers in senior management in leadership, motivation, supervision, and teamwork.
The workshop was officially opened by Markus Green Esq, AGA-Africa Programme Board Member with remarks from Dorcas Agik Oduor, MBS, OGW, Deputy Director, Public Prosecutions on behalf of Noordin Haji, Director, ODPP.
The facilitators were Anne Calle, Leadership Coach, San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, Jerrilyn Malana, Chief of Human Resources for the San Diego County District Attorney Office, Tracy Prior, Chief Deputy of the Family Protection Division and Dr. Henry Musoma Professor, Educational Leadership & Administration Texas Christian University.
The training included various management themes including the Dominance, Influence, Compliance and Steadiness Assessment; Emotional Intelligence; Operational Excellence in the workplace; Managing Prosecutors: The Duty and Honor of Leadership; Accountability and difficult conversations; and Living in the Moment: The Power of Being Present.
The insightful and captivating workshop was brought to a close by Dr. Freda Mwamba Brazle, Managing Partner, Innovatus Zambia and AGA-Africa Programme Country Coordinator for Zambia and Rodah Ogoma, Director, Prosecutors Training Institute.
