  Positive Re-framing Said to Be Crucial for NGO Leadership
 

Country Director of Marie Stopes International, Getachew Bekele, underlined the need for positive re-framing of NGO leadership in the current changing environment.
 



Some of the Participants
 

During his presentation at the third CCRDA Leadership Forum meeting held in Bishoftu town with the theme, “The Role of Leadership in Current Changing Environment”, Getachew said NGO leaders need to examine themselves closely to lead change itself. He said NGO leaders have to ride the turbulent wave and navigate in the sea of change rather than being swept away by the change. He emphasized the need to put the “re-” prefix in front of many familiar words and put them into practice. He underlined the need for re-positioning, re-imaging, re-branding, re-defining, re-learning, re-shaping, re-thinking, re-learning, and re-prioritizing, among others, to cope up with the current, what he called, “exponential change.”

Getachew also stressed on the need to be accountable, to do social business to generate income, and to strengthen partnership with the government to the extent the government sub-contracts NGOs for its development activities.
 



Getachew Bekele
 

Opening the meeting, Representative of CCRDA, Kiflemariam Gebrewold, said the CSO sector should overcome its weaknesses and nurture its strength. And he said the best way to be considered by stakeholders as serious development partners is to start with collective self-respect.

The participants discussed in groups the strengths and weaknesses of the CSO sector, and the opportunities and threats the sector is facing and identified what they thought are critical issues for NGOs at this time. Some of the critical issues they identified are the need for competent leadership that has succession strategy, the need for image building of the sector by promoting its good practices, the importance of being transparent and accountable, the need for genuine partnership and strong network with the government, donors, and other NGOs, the need to mobilize local resources and generate income among others.
