Change is a challenge for us all across the Civil Service. Would you like to enhance your skills to manage change more effectively? If yes, then come and join us for our East of Scotland CS Connect event for a focused day examining how the Civil Service in Scotland handles and operates during periods of change.
The aims of the event are:
- to provide an opportunity for civil servants to gain an insight into, and explore, some of the challenges facing the various departments in Scotland
- to identify and improve the particular skills needed in times of organisational change
- to highlight opportunities for improved cross-departmental collaboration
- to support our vision of ‘A Brilliant Civil Service’.
By the end of the day you will have new ideas, connections, strengthened skills and the tools to help you better approach change, whilst actively supporting the four pillars of our Brilliant Civil Service vision as follows:
- improved outcomes – become more efficient and innovative to deliver better products and services
- skilled people – become more adaptable and take personal responsibility
- effective leaders – become more inspiring, confident and empowering
- a great place to work – creating a truly inclusive, modern and connected Civil Service community.
How do we plan to achieve all this? Through a varied program of challenging and engaging activities, including several facilitated and highly interactive workshops, numerous networking opportunities, a market stall showcasing local departments and a question and answer session with senior civil servants, based in Scotland.
Come along to learn more about how you can play a part in the big picture of transformation within the Civil Service in Scotland.
