Our VC emphasised on the Goal Setting as well the Path to Breakthrough from the Orange Revolution. Some of the key take-aways are, leadership is about integrity, where one must be being humble as a person, and should be accountable of one action. Once we are given a responsibility, it is an amanah to us. So we must do our best to deliver. It is always about teamwork (esprit de corps), never solo. Among other things, the VS also emphasised on the power of du’a/prayers, as everything is from Him alone.
