The growing demand for data to implement national development plans, achieve the SDGs and address global crises puts pressure on national statistical offices (NSOs) to increase data production, develop and coordinate national statistical systems (NSSs) and engage with the larger data ecosystem. Enhancing the leadership skills of leaders of NSO through targeted training is essential to position the NSO/NSS to respond to emerging data needs, enhance institutional reputation, and build public trust.

PARIS21, together with the Centre for Creative Leadership, has been providing leadership training to Director Generals from NSOs worldwide to empower them with the skills needed to deliver their National Strategies for the Development of Statistics (NSDS) and excel in their roles. The program brings together diverse leaders with shared goals, resulting in an overwhelming increase in their self-awareness to improve leadership effectiveness. The leaders acquired concrete actions to improve leadership and ensured continuous development for future learning opportunities.
