The three-session conference had speakers speaking on a varied range of topics to enhance band building, providing accurate business policies and strategies, developing human skills, and developing a positive character towards work among other topics which gained the score in enlightening participants.
Speaking on “Developing Your Human Skills”, Dzigbordi Kwaku-Dosoo indicated that it is imperative to be able to have acceptable human skills in the world of work and every aspect of one’s life to give room for growth in one’s profession.
She advised participants to be open and willing to learn new skills and increase confidence and nurture a growth mindset.
This, she added, helps one to grow professionally and facilitates productivity.
The Globally Certified High-Performance Coach indicated that developing the human skills helps in continued relevance in one’s line of work and helps one stay ahead of competitors as there are revolutions in technology in the world at large.
Dzigbordi advised participants to walk into places with confidence and also identify their strengths and weaknesses and help build communication skills to help shape their lives.
“You should be able to walk into places with your heads up. Without knowing what triggers you, you can never solve problems. You have to identify what makes you cold and have the need to control those things internally.”
She added that “We live in the world where we feel someone was rude to us because of how they behaved to us not considering the fact that they might have been going through something in life. Be nice to people,” she reiterated.
Business Leader and CEO of Hair Senta, Gwyneth Gyimah Addo also made a remarkable presentation on “Developing a Good Character to Improve one’s Business.”
She mentioned that one of the vital elements of a successful business is humility.
Gwen added that a business leader should be able to give a listening ear to subordinates and customers.
“If you are not humble to listen to what your customers are telling you, you will get it all wrong. Good character is needed to build a successful business. Greatness is a byproduct of learning how to serve. If you have the heart for serving people, greatness will come to you. You won’t go chasing after greatness,” she added.
She advised participants not to get carried away with happenings on social media and encouraged them to “do you”.
Rev. Albert Ocran, the last speaker for the event gave insights on “How to be Productive and Profitable in a Changing World of Work”.
He explained that in a world where there is always a chance, there is the need to reinvent oneself in order from becoming obsolete.
Speaking on utilizing opportunities, he said, “It is important that you become agile, fast, and responsive in carrying out opportunities. You should be able to also redefine your outlook and perspective for money”.
Adeline Asante-Antwi also made an insightful presentation on growing one’s mindset.
She explained that “you can identify significant growth in your mindset when you are disciplined, showing up for yourself, having mentors, and taking your spirituality very serious.”
ABSA representatives also educated participants on the benefits of starting up using their packages.
The event, however, just didn’t see only presentations from speakers but climaxed with performances from entertainers in the Ghanaian music industry.
