Having identified the need to upskill prosecutors on management skills and not taking for granted that a good lawyer does not necessarily make a good manager, the National Prosecution Authority (NPA), Zambia collaborated with AGA-Africa to organize an eye-opening Management Skills training.
The four-day training workshop took place from the 21st to the 24th of September 2020. The training included various aspects of leadership, motivation, teamwork and supervision in order to adequately equip the trainees in these four areas key for anyone placed in a supervisory role.
The event was officially opened by Markus Green, Board Member AGA-Africa with keynote addresses by Mable Bauleni-Nawa, Chief Administrator of the National Prosecution Authority, Zambia, and the distinguished Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Fulata Lillian Shawa-Siyunyi.
The training facilitators were Anne Calle, Leadership Coach, San Diego County District Attorney’s Office and Dr. Henry Kasonde Musoma, Professor, Educational Leadership & Administration, Texas Christian University, who facilitated a session on ‘Emotional Intelligence, getting results/accountability, conflict resolution, and living in the moment’.
Jerrilyn Malana, Chief of Human Resources, San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, spoke on ‘Operational Excellence’ while Tracy Prior, Deputy District Attorney and Assistant Chief of the Family Protection, discussed ‘Managing Prosecutors: The Duty and Honor of Leadership’.
The training was brought to a close by Susan Lustig, AGA- Africa Administrative, and Fulata Lillian Shawa-Siyunyi, Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
