Retooled to Transform
The Staff of the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) have been retooled in the continuous journey of building a team of transformed transformers.
This was captured in the words of the General Secretary, Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui: “We have to first be transformed for us to transform others as we work to actualize the vision and mission of the Council”.
This was achieved during a two-day training for the Middle-Level Management team that was facilitated by the Dan Eldon Place of Tomorrow (DEPOT). The training aimed at revitalizing a transformative culture within the Council, fortifying the skills and capabilities of the team, and fostering coaching and mentorship as management and supervision techniques.
The NCCK Nairobi region manager, Watson Aquilla observed that the training is valuable for the staff, and the growth of the Council. “This training is very vital for our growth as individual staff, and also as a team. The transformation we aspire for NCCK begins with us.”
The General Secretary urged the managers to deliberately coach and mentor the staff they supervise. “We have to make commitments to coach the people we supervise. Personally, I have been coached by various people for me to reach here,” he pointed out.
The Management team recognized the centrality of embracing teamwork, innovation, and adaptation to technological and industry shifts in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) context.
