dc.description.abstract Communications is facing serious challenges within the Mpumalanga Provincial Government. <br><br> The Presidential Communications Task Group Report laid a framework for the transformation of communications in government. Yet, five years prior to its release, a study of the Mpumalanga Provincial Government reveals an institution lacking in communication. <br><br> Employing the case study methodology, the purpose of this study was to establish leadership practices that can turn around the situation. Through reviewed literature and case study the researcher established that the capacity of leaders for providing guidance in communication forms a very critical aspect thereof, and needs substantial attention. <br><br> Some of the findings include that: (1) Communicators are not effectively playing their roles as leading agents of change in government; (2) Public managers do not comprehend communication, and they do not see it as part of management's priorities; (3) The provincial communication system is ill-resourced, un-coordinated and inadequately configured; and (4) Lack of shared vision and poor leadership seems to be the main challenge. en
