Dr. Reynaldo V. Ebora new Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Agriculture,Aquatic and natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD) when asked about leadership simply said four work “I lead by example.

There is no better way , he said to lead people than showing and practicing himself those things he wishes them to adopt. Highly qualified personnel have much potential to be better at what they do and he aims to home this potential through capability building and doing the role model himself.

Ebora through with limitations just like others lives by the Golden Rule: “Do unto others what you want others to do unto you”.

He knows too there is much to be learned, but he relies on experience and support from previous leaders of the Council and ask his staff for their cooperation and patience as he institute change to more efficient.

He is not new to the DOST system, He served as the Executive Director of the former Philippine Council for Advanced Science and Technology Research and Development (PCASTRD) now part of the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD), from November 2005 to July 2010.
