JKUAT and Center for Regional and International Development (CRID) have officially launched an ICT-focused leadership development program for managers and executives at the middle and senior levels. The initiative aims to empower professionals in the private and public sectors with vital managerial skills that will aid in the growth and development of their organization’s workforce as well as improve performance.

The program has been realized through an innovative partnership initiative between the two organizations, and is dedicated to meeting the current and future development needs of the country’s established and aspiring leaders.

With leadership dynamics constantly changing as a result of new concepts and technologies, the training seeks to review the most recent trends, standards, best practices, and approaches while providing relevant and reliable information through a customer-oriented approach.

Speaking during the official launch of the program, Head of Research, Consultancy, and Training (RCT) Department, Mr. Anthony Muhoho, stated that the program will be important in providing leaders with critical skills, essential in transforming their organizations by enhancing value creation, creating efficiencies, and ensuring better employee engagement to deliver better results.

“Through this leadership skills training, managers can now learn how to create a vision for their team and how to inspire others to achieve it. Great leaders attract, hire, and inspire great people,” Mr. Muhoho stated.
