Village headmen, police officers and civil servants in Labasa have learned the art of effective communication.

Participants attended a one-day workshop organised by The University of the South Pacific (USP), Regional Rights Resource Team (RRRT) and Secretariat of Pacific Community at  Takia Hotel in Labasa.

Nasekula village headman Serupepeli Draunimasi, 30, said with the workshop he had now learned how to communicate effectively with village members.

“Ethics and ethical behaviour is very important not only in professional settings, but also in the village as well,” Mr Draunimasi said.

He said being young and leading the whole village was very challenging “especially when you have to also communicate with commoners and chiefs in the village”.

The same sentiments were shared by Fiji Police Force Office in Charge Bua/Macuata Peni Moi.

He said the workshop had taught him how to serve.

“Communicating ideas with other officers will improve problem solving, analysing of ides and contribute effectively on the development of the organisation,” Mr Moi said.

Facilitator and Lecturer of Good Governance at USP, Natasha Khan, said the programme would better facilitate the participants in their various organisations.

“The workshop will produce effective leaders in small, medium and large organisations,” Ms Khan said.

The workshop also covered financial management.
