Comments of the course participants
  • “I’ve got theoretical approval for my intuitive decisions how to behave, how to make influence so that results of common job are most effective. “
  • “I had an opportunity to evaluate myself and to make conclusions how to communicate with subordinates and my bosses.”
  • “The program has given me more confidence in myself, broadened my views. A lot of discussed things can be implemented in future – now I have broader opportunities for maneuvering.”
  • “The program has supplemented my knowledge, enabled to re-think stereotypes in my mind.”

Needed improvement-1
  • To include evaluation of personality and training needs before training and after training (USA – FEI – MBTI)
    • What value? – Motivation for training and check of individual progress
    • Limitations of 360 degree evaluation
    • Facet5 advantages. Basis – personality priorities of Big Five:

  • To use the fast track approach and residential training (USA, UK, Lithuania – AMES, EKT)
    • to train 170-300persons in 1-2 years
    • for 1 person: 2 months where 6-12 days are spent in intensive residential training

  • To provide a different training content profile for managers and advisers (UK, Central and Eastern Europe countries)
    • since2002 m. a standardized by NISPAcee training program for policy advisors

  • To start evaluation of an added value of training to the outcomes of organisational performance and quality of delivered services
    • In other EU states the reaction level evaluation is dominating.
    • We propose to find correlations between number of managers of X organisation, who took part in the training, their individual progressand the outcomes of organizational performance and quality of delivered services.
        • The outcomes of organisationalperformance are already checked in organisations that are under the ministries.
        • In PMI program actions for 2013-2015: in the I-st quarter of 2015 the Ministry of Interior will define quality evaluation criteria for organizations that deliver services and will start annual evaluation and its publication.

  • To relate training content with competences that are required during selection, performance evaluation and are used for promotion, carrier planning (USA, ECir 9 states: CY, IE, RO, HU, SI, EE, NL, UK, SE)
        • Because:
          • Not all competencies can be developed.
          • Training impact will be minimized if things that where encouraged by the training will have no link with things that are required from a manager.
        • Therefore it is essential that entire HRM for Top level civil servantsis based on competencies.
vi sion

Training of Top level civil servants is:

  • Individualized and profiled
  • Having mandatory and optional parts
  • Based on competencies
  • Proving its added value
  • Stepped-up and residential
  • Continually updated

  • Leadership has little to do with „leadership features“ and even less with „charisma". It is simple, everyday, not romantic and boring. Its essence is effectiveness of performance.
  • Leadership is not a good or desirable thing by itself. It is a mean. Therefore the essential question is for what purpose it will be used.
