Govt to create a national pool of trainers to conduct leadership sessions at LBSNAA

LEADERSHIP: All about sensitivity, open-mindedness, flexibility
THE government has decided to create a national pool of trainers comprising 25 officers across the country to conduct leadership development programme at LBSNAA, the premier academy that trains senior bureaucracy including IAS. According to a letter, written by DoPT joint secretary Alok Kumar and posted to state chief secretaries and…
cadre controlling authorities, the trainers need to have a “comprehensive understanding of the environment in which civil servants work and challenges thereof”, and must possess an “excellent standard of written and verbal skills to explain the subject” among others to qualify for the job. What’s also asked for is “sensitivity, open-mindedness and flexibility.” A private person however is not eligible to be a trainer. The applicant needs to work as a civil servant for 12 years to qualify for the job. The last date of application is April 15, 2013. Once selected, they have to give 20 days a year for the job.
Unlike the corporate trainers who receive over lakhs of rupees for just a couple of days, the professional fee under LBSNAA’s current policy is Rs 1,000 for every 1.5 hours of training. The institute will however bear the trainers' expenses of air-fare, accommodation etc.
It is also proposed to integrate modules on leadership skills from foundation course to various mid-career training programmes at LBSNAA, for which it is now partnering with an international leadership development agency called Centre for Creative Leadership.
