The Senior Officers from the Tanzania Rural and Urban Roads Agency (TARURA) participated in a five-day leadership retreat, organised by UONGOZI Institute from 18 – 22 November 2019.
The retreat sessions were customised to allow participants to reflect on the Agency’s systems as well as administration and human resource challenges and opportunities. They were taken through seven leadership modules, namely Government Communication, Personal Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, Internal Controls in Public Entities, Leadership of Public Resources, Ethical Leadership, and Government Security.
Speaking at the end of the programme, the Regional Coordinator for Simiyu, Eng. Dr. Philemon Msomba commended the approaches used by UONGOZI Institute’s facilitators, which according to him made the retreat “lively and engaging”.
“Since 2017, we have attended various leadership programmes but only in this one, there were no absences. This shows that the retreat was well planned and organised,” he stated.
He added, “I liked that facilitators led us from presentations to team-building exercises and group discussions. It made the sessions interactive and informative.”
