In the context of the Sway4edu project, ECES in partnership with EFEAC and the Centre for Creative Leadership (CCL), held a Training of Trainers in Brussels from 14 to 18 May 2012.


This workshop has been organised in preparation for the training on "Leadership and Conflict Management for the electoral administration" (LEAD) from 18 to 22 June in Brussels aimed at senior representatives from 14 electoral commissions in Africa.  Steadman Harrison, Regional Director Africa CCL-LBB, Fabio Bargiacchi, ECES Executive Director, Raphael Pouyé, ECES Senior Election Expert and Mette Bakken ECES Electoral Research Analyst, facilitated the training. 


This course has been aimed at introducing key members of ECES to the fundamental concepts of Leadership Development and to their links to conflict prevention and conflict management mechanisms. ECES members and associates became consequently familiar with topics such as the Learning Curve, the Direction-Alligment-Committment principles, the Mental Models and Social Identity, which are the basis of the LEAD training.
