Abstract The Research will explore impacts of leadership effectiveness in strengthening influence of marginalized civil groups, subsets of civil society on the political process in Liberia. Lack of inputs of marginalized civil groups and local communities in the making of public decisions on budgeting, allocating resources for development programs in the communities and in selecting those who run their local offices is the theme by focusing on the role of the New African Research and Development Agencies (NARDA) operating in Liberia. Civil society in Liberia faces several challenges, including lack of leadership effectiveness and accountability. In an effort to resolve the challenges post by the lack of leadership effectiveness, accountability, and resources, NARDA decided to create indigenous nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) in all the sub-political divisions (counties and regions) to enhance the quality of governance based on the logic of transparency. In addition, NARDA continues to implement capacity improvement programs to help the indigenous organizations become effective. The case study will explore the complex intricacies of leadership development, building of ambient relations between these organizations and the national and regional governments including probable donors- international, and community based organizations (CBOs) from the context of Wall et al. (1992), which emphasized leadership role in understanding organizational intra-relationship and interrelationship among stakeholders as it fosters CBOs and CSOs, important actors in the governing processes of Liberia. Both primary and secondary data will be collected from interviews, archives of civil groups, public records, and from the research questions that may reveal the difficulties in implementing leadership capacity building programs, or training in such a developing nation, and including the expectations of donors in creating well functioning local or regional nongovernmental organizations. The data analysis will be done in a three-step that may include coding and triangulation of the data so as to demonstrate their connection to the issue being studied and their connective relationship, using the qualitative software NVl07. The analysis will enshrine the reliability of leadership effectiveness in fostering marginalized civil groups’ influence on public decision making using strategic advocacy, policy engagement and implementation on all levels of government in Liberia.
