The National School of Judges, with support from the USAID New Justice Program, conducted a training program in leadership for chief judges. This was the first event in a series of events planned by co-organizers to continue similar training programs which were administered from 2013 through 2018. The program is intended to cover the essence of leadership and help trainees to develop the leadership philosophy, identity, thinking, communication style, and demeanor.
Thanks to participation in the program, chief judges will better realize their role as leaders and use leadership skills to enhance management of court operations together with the court administrator, deputy chief judge, and meeting of judges.
The trainees learned how to develop leadership skills, common values, and culture in order to cement the court team and ensure high performance of the court staff.
Soon, the National School of Judges and State Judicial Administration, with support from the USAID New Justice Program, will conduct a similar training program for court chief administrators, whereupon chief judges and court administrators will be trained in how to raise the performance of the court managerial staff.
Like in 2013 through 2018, the current training events are held with the engagement of Maureen Conner, the USAID New Justice Program expert in court administration. In the past, she was a Professor and Director of the Court Administration Program at Michigan State University. The State Judicial Administration, in cooperation with the Michigan State University and with support from the USAID Fair Justice Program, developed and implemented the first in Ukraine certificate training programs in court administration.
