By Joseph Egbeocha

To ensure increased productivity in service, the 18 newly appointed Permanent Secretaries in Anambra State civil service are currently undergoing a two-day capacity building workshop organised for them by the state government.

The workshop has as its theme, “Strategic leadership: Thriving through challenges and opportunities in governance”.

Declaring the event opened, the Head of Service of Anambra State, Barrister Theodora Igwegbe, who thanked Governor Chukwuma Soludo for appointing the Permanent Secretaries, said the chosen one are lucky one of the about 37, 000 civil servants in the state.

She tasked the Permanent Secretaries on team work with their Commissioners, colleagues and even subordinates, as well as doing things that are in line with the vision and missions of the Soludo administration.

Speaking on performance management while delivering a lecture on “The leader’s roadmap”, Barrister Igwegbe called for ways of incentivizing people to achieve maximum productivity while punishing bad behaviours, adding that monitoring and evaluation are also necessary for achieving improvement in service delivery.

Motivating the participants with the story of how her six years experience as Deputy Clerk of the Anambra State House of Assembly brought her to limelight in the state, Barrister Igwegbe reminded the state workforce that they are paid for their time and skills while in service, even as she charged the Permanent Secretaries to be leaders in their service areas.
