Too much silence, says Mottley
SILENCE DOES NOT cut it!
That’s the word from Leader of the Opposition Barbados Labour Party, Mia Mottley, who has called for Barbados’ leaders to speak out about what she deemed the country’s social and economic slide under Prime Minister Freundel Stuart’s leadership.
Speaking at the final Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) monthly luncheon for the year at Hilton Barbados today, Mottley maintained that the citizens of Barbados were educated, networked and were vigilant.
She suggested there was not enough wool on Blackbelly sheep for any Government to pull over the eyes of an entire population.
“Conversations are the norm in all healthy relationships. They have always been the norm to conduct our national affairs. Or at least we thought it was – until now. Well let me assure you that for me it still is.
“True leadership is essentially about communication. And effective leadership is about motivating, mobilising, reassuring, inspiring confidence, protecting and empowering. That is a given, whether you lead a group of people in a company or the people of an entire country,” she said. (SDB Media)
