Ukraine needs new generation of leaders: Leadership Academy on Cross-Border Cooperation started

10 July 2019 the Centre of Expertise for Good Governance of the Council of Europe, in cooperation with CESCI – Central European Service for Cross Border Initiatives, is organising the first Leadership Academy training on cross-border cooperation for local authorities of Ukraine and Hungary.

The participants, including representatives of the bordering Ukrainian and Hungarian local authorities, the Tisza EGTC, CESCI, and MinRegion, will be introduced to new thinking about cross-border cooperation and good governance at local level in a very interactive way, a range of innovative training techniques will be used. Participants will examine the challenges faced by cross border municipalities and learn how good leadership can tackle those challenges by strengthening the institutional capacities of the municipality and working effectively with local people and organisations; they will develop the awareness, knowledge, skills and attitudes that form the foundation of good leadership. In addition, the participants will learn how to apply the Council of Europe legal and capacity-building tools on cross-border cooperation. Practical consultations and assistance on the concrete CBC projects and structures can also be provided in the course of the programme.

This event initiates a series of Leadership Academy Programmes to be held during 2019-2020 for representatives of local authorities from the neighboring regions of Ukraine, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia with the participation of the best experts and practitioners of the border cooperation, coaches of the Council of Europe, representatives of the Ministry of Regional Development of Ukraine and trainers of the Council of Europe Programme “Decentralisation and Local Self-Government Reform in Ukraine”.

Almost everyone has the ability to lead. It's a personal choice of whether or not to be a leader in each particular situation.

The real leader is the one who is respected, since he/she listens to colleagues, inspires and helps them grow. In the times of decentralisation, Ukraine needs a new generation of hromada leaders: reputable and at the same time respectable, knowledgeable and ready to learn, law-abiding, but open to innovation and improvement.

Daniel Popescu, Head of the Democratic Governance Department at Council of Europe

Leadership is the foundation of good governance. A leader manages relationships and environment so that others want to work with him/her for a common purpose. The main task of leadership is to develop the leadership potential of others.

The Academy's trainings, based on the best municipal development practices, and study visits to Polish gminas provide their participants with knowledge and tools to ensure good governance and establishment of high-performing local self-government bodies.
