Technical Meeting on Leadership and its Development in Nuclear Organizations

21 – 24 Apr 2020
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT1904661

Following the publication of Leadership and Management for Safety (IAEA Safety Standards Series No. GSR Part 2) in 2016, Member States have repeatedly requested practical guidance on what nuclear leadership means and how it should be evaluated.

The IAEA has developed LeaD, a web-based tool for nuclear leadership development. The tool has been in use since the beginning of 2018 as part of the Nuclear Energy Capacity Building Hub. Staff members from WANO and the IAEA have participated in developing the tool. In the area of nuclear emergencies, the IAEA has issued another publication, Leadership, Human Performance and Internal Communication in Nuclear Emergencies (IAEA Nuclear Energy Series No. NG-T-1.5).

The purpose of the event is to share with Member States experiences related to leadership skill development in nuclear organizations in order to foster a positive organizational culture and a motivated workforce. The event will also enable the participants to learn how the IAEA-developed LeaD toolkit can provide them with a structured framework for developing leadership in their respective organizations.

The event will include practical presentations, discussions and interactive group work, including on the following topics:

  • The need for investing in nuclear leaders;
  • Understanding gaps and designing and implementing a leadership development programme;
  • Embedding leadership behaviour/knowledge at work to improve organizational performance, and
  • Sustaining and evolving leadership development.

The Technical Meeting is primarily intended for managers and experts involved in the development of leadership and management at nuclear organizations in different life cycles.
