The Department of Organisation and Human Resource Management (OHRM), as part of its extension services, collaborated with Enterprise Risk Management Institute (ERM Africa) to organise a 2-Day workshop themed “Emotional Intelligence and Team Building ''. The training aimed to provide important knowledge and skills in behavioural risk to managers, supervisors, and team leaders from the various units of the Adentan Municipal Assembly (AdMA).
The capacity-building workshop was one of a series of competency-based training programmes initiated by the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon. Daniel Alexander Nii-Noi Adumah. The workshop was organised for AdMA staff and Assembly Members in the Adentan Municipal Assembly and its environs as part of the government's efforts to develop vibrant, well-trained, and responsive professional civil servants.
The principal resource person was Professor Damoah Obi Berko, Head, Department of Organisation and Human Resource Management, University of Ghana Business School (UGBS). He indicated that as a member of a public business school that is managed, controlled, and funded by the state, he was willing to offer the Department's services at the doorstep of any public sector institution in Ghana. This, he said, will complement the government's effort of building a proactive public institution for Ghana.
On her part, Mrs. Patience Addo Lassey, a Senior Human Resource Manager and Head of AdMA's Human Resource Department, spoke about the importance of other Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies (MMDAs) in providing significant budgetary support for capacity building. She also encouraged donor institutions to help the Adentan Municipal Chief Executive's efforts to build the capacity of his staff and assembly members.
In a brief remark, Rev. Vincent Davies, Chief Operating Officer, ERM Africa, stated that his institution is willing to work with any MMDA to teach and certify its workers in risk management and related disciplines. He urged government personnel to adapt to shifting societal and workplace dynamics and enhance their skills to boost efficiency.
