George Follis Division Helps CS Tb Help Itself By RICHARD CARVER of The Journal The four-month public ad ministration course for senior! civil servants has been rated a success. Another one is planned to begin next February. . The responsibility for this training program and many others rests with the Civil Service Commission's staff training and development division, headed by George Follis. THREE-YEAR VETERAN Mr. Follis, a tail, burly and friendly person, has been run-nine the division for three years. ' The division's activities are made un of living advice in deoartmental programs, assist mnem in development of their staff training programs and op erating specialized courses. The number of requests" for .advice increased in 1963 but " the emphasis, as noted in the latest Civil Service Commission annual report, has changed to traininc within the service rather than by outside facilities. . Advice la major factor in the division's attitude to iu work, . BEST APPROACH . It i better to use departmental training facilities to get the program under way than call upon the slim resources 10 officer of Mr. roiiis'S division. '. "Wl do little teaching." says Mr. Follis. The. nearest we com to it is in a supervisory training course and a secretariat development and orients tion course," " He went on:' "Really, the focus is on getting the best teaching resources to do a par ticular Job." The four-month senior ad ministration course was an ex ceUent example- Leading people in specialized fields, such finance, politics and adminis tration, lectured the civil serv ants at the "college" w Carle- ton Place. ON PAR Mr. Follis reckons that his division is on a per with any similar organizations in private Industry. He and his officers are In constant touch with other management experts and de velopments, t Underlying their work is the aim to get civil servants to do ss much as they can for selves to set up and run their own departmental training programs. This leaves the division more time to concentrate on the mora specialized and complicated projects. "Encoursiini others to as sume responsibility" Is one of the ways George Follis puts it Mr. Follis, who is something of a curling ace.
