Leadership is essential if strategic objectives are to be achieved, understanding stakeholder needs and maximizing resources. Leaders engage with stakeholders, develop and recognize people, foster improvement and excellence across the Board, and manage change effectively. The Chamber's Mission, Vision and Values (MVV) are communicated and deployed, and it is through this MVV that leaders manage and ensure efficient communication with all, equal opportunities and transparency. The leadership team brings together stakeholders to gather and deploy relevant information to enable timely and effective decision-making, discuss problems, analyze results and deviations, and define corrective actions and necessary changes, and is responsible for developing Skills and knowledge. Internally, leaders communicate effectively with all employees, and there is a formal meeting schedule to ensure the deployment of all information. In addition to these meetings, formal and informal communication channels are used day-to-day.
