Lessons on Leadership

Today, the Department welcomed a special guest lecturer, Oxford University’s Dr. David Pendleton. Dr. Pendleton is a visiting professor at Webster University and is internationally recognized for his expertise on leadership in challenging times. Our employees were very fortunate to have the opportunity to hear his thoughts.

Dr. Pendleton stressed to employees the importance of leadership in transitional times. Given the many changes taking place in the Department, this topic was very fitting.

It is the Department’s leadership team, beginning with myself, which must take the initiative to understand our evolving plans and strategies, while at the same time effectively communicating them to both employees and citizens.  The information provided by Dr. Pendleton will help us to do precisely that.

Partnerships such as this one not only provide a sense of unity with the community, but also provide the Department with great opportunities to learn from others and grow.
