USAID/Uganda - A Mission of Leaders - Interview and Video
In this screencast Mission Director Leslie Reed and Deputy Mission Director Mark Meassick present on USAID/Uganda's "Mission of Leaders" initiative, an effort to build individual staff capacity, strengthen teaming processes and behaviors, and transform the Mission's culture to more effectively support Program Cycle implementation and institutionalize collaborating, learning and adapting. The screencast also includes a robust Q&A facilitated by Tony Pryor (PPL/SPP).
USAID/Uganda has created a Mission of Leaders initiative to promote and realize the vision that ALL staff members have a leadership role to play, no matter where one sits in the organizational hierarchy and what role one plays within the Mission. The ability to lead, make connections, build relationships, influence, learn what works, know how to make a difference, manage development processes and change, administer resources, plan…all of these are required of our staff, our teams and our Mission. And to be successful in achieving USAID’s development objectives in Uganda, we must make sure that we are all equipped to execute this work effectively. The Mission of Leaders initiative includes mutually-reinforcing components that continue to evolve and adapt to the emerging needs of USAID Uganda’s staff and development agenda.
