|Training for Elected Leadership - The Councillor as Enabler (HABITAT, 1994, 18 p.)|
|Part II - Workshop on the councillor as enabler|
Time required: 30 minutes
This presentation is to provide participants with ideas and perspectives on the enabler role and a conceptual foundation they can use for the individual and group exercises included in this workshop.
Prepare the presentation based on information from the preceding essay on the enabler role. In particular, clarify what it means to enable the activities and performance of others. Distinguish between the production and the provision of public services. Explain how collabouration and sharing responsibilities can accomplish more than independent action and when these techniques can and cannot be used effectively.
Outlined information on note cards may help you cover the information systematically and stay on schedule. Ask questions from time to time during the presentation as a check on participant comprehension and to hold their attention. Augment the presentation with visual aids including pre-printed newsprint sheets and overhead transparencies as a further aid to comprehension.
