THE EFFECTS OF LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT ON SOCIAL SERVICE DELIVERY IN WARD COUNCILS IN EKITI STATE

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background to the Study
Contemporary global organizations operate in environments characterized by rapid
changes and increasing complexity (Myers & Scott, 2011). Advancements in
technology, globalization and shifting geopolitical forces, New Public Management,
Public Sector Reforms (PSR) ande-Governance have triggered new challenges on
social service delivery (Philipia, 2007 and Shailenda, et. al., 2007).
Basing on these global change that have altered local mechanization of leadership,
leadership development has become crucial tool in ensuring better provision of social
services in local government, as current programmes require specialized knowledge
and skills to handle (Agunyai, 2014). Leadership development is an aspect that defines organization growth and shaping current and newly leaders. Analoui (2007)
suggested strongly for Local Government to pay attention to the Human Resource
Development in order to ensure effective administration.

In ward councils, there are contrasting approaches between current leaders and old
human resources on issue of developing their careers and its significances on service
delivery. With these approaches some ward councils provide little support on
Leadership Development Trainings hence human resources continue relying on
experiences to maintain status-quo, opt for transfer of experts, recruiting part time
leaders regardless of loopholes they would encounter. This problem affects social
service delivery and citizens as service users, Central Government in achieving good
governance (Frumence, at. el., 2013, Rweyongoza, 2010).

Spencer (2011) shows how lack of formal processes for developing new and current
leaders affect organization‟s vision and mission. Analoui (2007) suggested strong
Human Resource Development for effective leadership. To him public services in
Local Authorities faced challenges due to lack of proper leadership capacity building
