ICB in partnership with Dr. Ray Laferla has just competed a one-week intensive training for mid-senior managers on “Managing For Results.” The course was held at Nairobi Safari Club between 19th and 23rd May, 2014.
Among the participants were Corporate Managers, Directors of Non-Governmental Organization, Executives from various County Governments and Senior Managers from Institutions of Higher Learning.
Dr. Ray is an international consultant and a leading authority in management, leadership and organizational development. He holds a Masters degree in clinical psychotherapy and a PhD in occupational psychology. He has published several books and inventories.
During the course, participants were taken though the following sessions:
After the training, participants expressed optimism that they had learnt most practical, effective, up-to-date best practices and strategies that are guaranteed to achieve results. Some reckoned that they had attended various management training but none of those dealt with the “how” aspect of doing things. Dr. Ray has a unique way of communicating how things can be done differently to achieve optimal performance through people. He has global experience in management, having worked as a senior manager in top companies. His background in psychology makes him a unique facilitator of management and leadership.
Ms. Mumbi Kigwe Wettstein was the chief guest at the closing ceremony. Mumbi is a radio presenter at 96.3 Nation FM. She was accompanied by her mum, Ms. Nancy Wettstein. While congratulating the participants for taking time to enhance their managerial and leadership competencies, she encouraged them to be strong mentors and coaches. She credited her successful career path to her managers who encouraged and supported her initiatives thus making it possible for her to exploit her full potential. She castigated managers who feel like bosses thus stifling their subordinates’ creativity.
The next workshop will be held from August 17-22, 2014 in Naivasha. Please log into www.icb.co.ke, to register. We look forward to seeing you in Naivasha.
