Accelerating civil service leadership

Date:

KUCHING: Executive coaching was introduced to the Sarawak Civil Service (SCS) to accelerate leadership and transformation in efforts to achieve the developed Sarawak 2030 aspiration.

Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg disclosed that via ‘SCS Leaders Build Leaders’ initiative, coaching was implemented in seamless integration with training, mentoring and counselling.

He explained that the initiative was to provide a wholesome and powerful leadership development intervention as well as to build the required leadership capabilities and capacity.

“Executive coaching is the latest ‘thinking technology’ that nurtures our ability to think in clarity, think far ahead and think creatively, strategically and pragmatically. These are essential in driving impact and innovation.

“As such, SCS leadership development must reap the benefits of coaching that is integrated into the broader talent development processes to unleash all potentials to achieve high performance service delivery to the people. It is premised on an aggressive wellbeing platform for both employee and organisation,” he said at the launch of ‘Transformation via Conversations’ – Supporting SCS Leadership Transformation via Coaching at Pullman Hotel here yesterday.

His text of speech was read by Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas.

The programme organised by the State Human Resource Unit (SHRU) and the Leadership Institute of Sarawak Civil Service saw guidance and partnership led by Dr Marcia Reynolds, a well-known Master Certified Coach who introduced ways of transformation for the state government.

“I hope all who are involved in the programme will fully benefit in important lessons that not only improve leadership skills, but service performance,” he added.

During the session, Marcia gave a talk on “Transformation through conversation” and introduced mentoring to leaders in the SCS to provide practical applications on how to use mentoring conversations to accelerate team performance.

Marcia has coached CEOs and delivered both executive coaching and training programmes in 43 countries to corporations, schools and top universities including Harvard Kennedy School and Cornell University.
