A National Survey to identify and assess Jamaica’s Leadership Culture is currently being implemented by leading assessment company, Extended DISC Caribbean.
According to Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Trevor Smith, close to 100 organisations have responded to its National Leadership Culture Survey, and he is hoping for more participants.
“Extended DISC is hoping to get 1,000 participants for this project and we are appealing to leaders to participate in the survey, given the role it can play in national development,” he said, during a JIS ‘Think Tank’, at the agency’s headquarters, on August 27.
“We want leaders from every sphere of operation, Government, private sector, non-governmental, youth-based and community organisations to participate, so that we can have a clear idea of how our leaders go about leading our nation, how it compares to what leaders from other countries are doing and draw conclusions that can enhance our drive for competitiveness,” he further explained.
Persons or organisations interested in participating in the survey can access it at . The access code is RES-jamaica2009.
The National Leadership Culture Survey/Study will look at the Leadership Profile in Jamaica; Leadership Culture by age, gender, industry, area of responsibility and organisation size; National Stress in Jamaica; Leadership Culture vs. Jamaican Population, and Jamaica in the future – Young Generation.
Once this data is collected and analysed, it will be compared to its equivalent in the world’s most competitive nations. On completion of the project, the findings will be made available to the Jamaican public for discussion and analysis. Jamaica was ranked 86th in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report 2008 – 2009.
