Top county officials trained on servant leadership

Top county government officials have undergone a 2-day training on servant leadership organised by the county government in collaboration with Africa Servant Leadership Development Institute.
The training, at Wote, which closed its doors on Friday was geared towards inspiring and equipping the officials with servant leadership skills and creating a conducive climate in the work place and in the community of their service.
Deputy governor Adelina Mwau who attended the workshop and gave her key note remarks noted that the training offered the officials an opportunity to reflect on the values that each one needs to touch other people’s lives in workplaces and in the community at large.
“It is time for us to reflect what it means to serve in a way that we touch lives of other people. Let us reflect on the values that we need to be servant leaders,” Mwau said.
The DG further called for personal transformation as the starting point to servant leadership.
The training was tailored around themes of good governance, corruption, social responsibility, stewardship, leadership and integrity and core values of servant leadership.
Dr. Mulinge of ASLDI and a facilitator commended the good leadership exhibited by governor Kivutha Kibwana and her deputy and presented the DG with certificates of recognition of their exemplary servant leadership.
