Beyond providing the necessary tools or hardware needed for a project to run and knowing the technicalities or software in handling a project, leaders today are urged to develop “heartware”—have a clear vision, compassion, strong sense of accountability, and integrity, which are integral in successful project management. “Heartware” makes leaders flexible, analytical, enabling, and solution-oriented.

To help government leaders develop “heartware”, the Civil Service Commission (CSC), through the Civil Service Institute (CSI) will hold the 1st Quarter CSI Leadership Series themed, “Leadership: The Heartware of Managing Projects” set on March 20, 2019 in Quezon City.

The learning forum is the first of four CSI Leadership Series for 2019, which aims to empower leaders to go beyond achieving project success, but challenges them to be innovative and collaborative in achieving teams’ goals in spite of diversity. Public sector executives, managers, directors, and division chiefs or those in equivalent positions are encouraged to participate.
