MIND TRANSFORMATION CAN HELP IN ATTAINING THE ASPIRATIONS OF AN ORGANISATION

UUM ONLINE: The Minister of Welfare, Women, and Family Development, Sarawak, Datuk Fatimah Abdullah, said that, in an organisation’s efforts to attain its aspirations and objectives, every member of its staff needs to effect a migration of the mind i.e. a mental migration to a first class mentality that is based on the three elements of work proficiency, accuracy, and efficacy.

She averred that mind migration was crucial to ensuring that every member of staff in an organisation carried out the responsibilities entrusted to them to the extent of achieving the highest standards and securing international recognition.

“I believe that an individual who succeeds in transforming their mind will give their full commitment, change their mindset as well as manage their thoughts towards thinking that is advanced in order to be able to make the soundest of decisions.

“Mind transformation has the ability to raise the level of commitment in each individual and enable them to evaluate and adapt their self-will and desires so as to suit them to the situation at hand without being egocentric and irrational.

“Every individual has to be focused on fulfilling their duties, devising effective strategies, and acting consistently while, at the same time, rectifying errors and failures based on feedback,” she said in her speech on behalf of the Chief Minister of Sarawak, Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, during the Keynote Address Ceremony and the official opening of the seminar on Excellent Management, which ran from 8th till 10th May 2012, at the Hilton Hotel, Kuching, Sarawak.

Fatimah Abdullah also said that, in cultivating an excellent work culture, employees needed to put into practice eight work principles, namely speed and positivity, empathy, relevance, competitiveness, trust, integrity, added value and distinction, and knowledge and wisdom.

“All of us should always be sensitive to the needs of our clients, endeavour to give the best service in the quickest possible time as well as be mindful of  developing our capacity to be more competitive. This is precisely what is applied in a first class work culture,” she added further.

The Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak, in his welcoming address, thanked the Sarawak state government for helping UUM to successfully hold the seminar. The seminar, he said, was an annual event organised by the Chancellery, UUM.

He added that the seminar had been previously held in Sabah and Pulau Langkawi in Kedah and that it was held in Sarawak for the first time, this year.

“I believe that the presence of this many participants at this seminar is the result of two factors at work. They are the collateral opportunity for taking in the sights, sounds, and flavours of Sarawak and the immense benefits that can be imbibed from the seminar itself.

“The participants this time around are those who hail from different backgrounds. This variety, I believe, augurs well for the success of this seminar since the convergence of various viewpoints will only add another meaningful dimension to the proceedings. I am certain that the much sharing of knowledge and experience that this will occasion will be greatly beneficial to all participants,” he said.

The seminar on Excellent Management, themed Self Therapy and the Aura of the Organisation, enjoyed the participation of 180 members of staff from 49 organisations.
