LEADERS

Conference

LEADING FROM WITHIN Leveraging Lessons to Meet Future Challenges

T

he Human Resource Development Unit organised the Leaders Conference on 15 October 2012 at the Grand Ballroom Pacific Sutera, Sutera Harbour Resort. Themed “Leading from within: Leveraging Lessons to Meet Future Challenges”, the conference attracted 144 participants throughout Sabah, Malacca and the Federal Territory of Labuan.

Guest speaker, Dr. Edwin Varo, Chief Knowledge Officer of Perpetual Knowledge Development Sdn. Bhd. led in conducting the four-session conference. Three other speakers joined Dr. Varo in sharing their thoughts and experiences. They were Ms. Brenda Kua, Director of Noesis Consulting Sdn. Bhd., Mr. Selveen Muniandy, Principal Consultant of Interveen Sdn. Bhd. and Dato’ IR Haji Ahmad Murad bin Haji Omar, Vice President of The Institute of Marine Engineering Science & Technologies UK. In delivering his keynote address, the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, Datuk Masidi Manjun shared the ten common mistakes that that leader must avoid based on John Maxwell’s book.

complementary skills that would teach the followers not to compete but to complete them. “As a leader, you must be inclusive and not exclusive,” he added. Datuk Masidi also said that possessing a limiting attitude was another mistake by leaders who usually refused to accept ideas, suggestions and feedbacks from the employees. “This kind of leaders will not favour changes

Datuk Masidi being introduced to the speakers Dr. Varo and Ms. Brenda. Also in the picture is Tan Sri Khalil (left).

According to Datuk Masidi, the first mistake commonly made by leaders is avoiding personal responsibility. “Leaders need to realise they are responsible to themselves and others. They should also realise that they need to lead themselves before leading others. Leaders should walk the talk,” he said. The second mistake by leaders was not building a leadership team, instead formed followers. In this respect, Datuk Masidi said, leaders should teach the team

and they show negative thinking towards the employees' proposals unless the ideas come from themselves,” he said. “As leaders, they must treat their employees fairly and reward them according to their contributions to the organisation. Do not baby sit employees who are troubled maker or lazy and do not allow yourself to be a slave to mediocrity,” he said. Datuk Masidi said, focusing too much on the problems would cause leaders to lose focus on 6

the strength of the organisation. “As leaders, you need to build and maintain the momentum. Momentum is how you motivate your workers to work hard by complimenting their efforts and good performance. One of the biggest diseases among leaders is the desire to please everyone when they should be focusing on doing what is right and not the most popular way to solve or do thing,” he added. He continued, not setting standards for the team could also lead to problems. “Leaders need to set standards and educate their employees to live by the standards. Failure to train people will result inefficient employees. There must be continuous education. There is no such thing as when I get my law degree, that's it,” he said. He also stressed that tolerating poor performance could jeopardise the organisation's performance as well as the management team that run the business. Another mistake was failing to create a conducive working environment because bad working environment will make people hate their work. “In order to create an excellent working environment, the organisation should have a significant mission, great leadership, value is placed on people, synergy among players and nurturing positive attitude,” said Datuk Masidi.

Participants’

According to Tan Sri Khalil, the rich discussions the participants had during the conference certainly add valuable inputs to the true essence of the word leadership. He added, the conference will not

only help leaders reinvent and reposition themselves as strategic leaders of their organisations, it also brings exciting creative ideas, cutting-edge knowledge and winning practices by distinguished and successful personalities.

FEEDBACKS

Dr. Doreen Goh - Group Manager, Biotechnology & Horticulture Division “A very good forum for knowledgeable people to share with us and I hope we can practice what we have learned from this conference. All the speakers, especially Dr. Varo speaks from the heart, more interpersonal qualities are applied.” 7

Doreen said the topics were very relevant both in our works and life. The speakers taught us how to be a good leader and as a head of a division, it re-enforced what we have practiced as a leader. “I would definitely attend such forum in the future - very good and educational.”


Encik Tommie Philip Lajawai - Principal Assistant Director, Department of Industrial Development & Research “The conference's contents are totally different from what we are doing as far as work is concerned. The conference has provided ideas on how we can enhance our performance. If we don't attend conference like this, then we will be stagnant, we will not get new ideas, inputs from good speakers who are trained to motivate, especially the government servants.”

On the speakers, Tommie said all the speakers are very good especially Dr. Varo - very inspiring, relevant and applicable in changing our mindset. “I want to attend conference like this in future and share the knowledge acquired from this conference to other staff.”

Puan Esther V. Mobilik - Librarian, Sabah State Library “This conference is very enlightening. I have learned new things, gain knowledge, experience and new friends. Leading from within as Maxwell said, “the most difficult person to lead is myself,” Lead myself!” “All the speakers are interesting especially Datuk Masidi's keynote address. All the topics covered are extremely relevant,

what a leader is supposed to be: 3600 leadership all over the place.” “I wish I can attend such conference in the future. More officers from the government sector should be given the opportunity to attend such conference too.”

Encik Hanafiah Diman - Chief Zone Administrator West Coast South Zone “Thank you very much for the Leaders Conference. Great success! I can imagine how much preparation was done in preparing the Conference. It was a very fruitful meeting. It is a pity that it was only conducted in a day.”

Ms. Diana Solibun - Human Resource Executive, Kimanis Power Sdn. Bhd. “The conference far exceeded my expectations. It showed me the depth of what we did not previously know and what we need to know or understand in being leaders. There is little I can suggest in the way of improving the conference. It was superb.

Dengan pencapaian CGPA 3.64, Cik Shafiqa Naidah Sarifuddin, 22 tahun dari Tawau, yang merupakan graduan Diploma Pengurusan Teknologi (Perakaunan) telah dipilih sebagai penerima Anugerah Pingat Emas dan Ketua Eksekutif 2012 pada Majlis Konvokesyen ke 17 Kolej Yayasan Sabah. Jom kita dekati saudari Shafiqa… Selain itu, saya juga menyediakan nota-nota ringkas yang saya buat sendiri supaya saya akan lebih memahami dan ingat apa yang dipelajari. Saya juga berpegang kepada kata-kata “practice makes perfect,” sebab saya sedar lebih banyak latihan yang saya buat, lebih banyak pengetahuan yang diperolehi. Contohnya, sebelum peperiksaan akhir, saya mencuba set-set peperiksaan semester lepas untuk lebih bersedia di hari peperiksaan.

Selepas mendapat keputusan SPM, kami difahamkan saudari terus memilih KYS untuk melanjutkan pelajaran, mengapa?

The workshop covers wideranging of topics which include "Legal Aspect Related To Access Benefit Sharing," "Documentation of Traditional Ecological Knowledge” and "Biotechnological Process & Discovery.” The sessions were conducted by leading local and international experts within the field of ecologic biodiversity.

Selepas mendapat keputusan SPM, saya memang berharap untuk masuk ke mana-mana IPTA tetapi peluang untuk mendapat tempat di IPTA bukan senang. Walaupun begitu, saya tekad untuk meneruskan pengajian dan mengambil jalan untuk masuk ke IPTS. Memandangkan KYS merupakan IPTS yang terbaik di Sabah, maka saya memilih KYS dan mengambil bidang dibawah francais UTM.

About seventy participants from various organisations attended the workshop.

Kami difahamkan, hampir setiap semester, saudari dapat mengekalkan keputusan peperiksaan yang cemerlang. Mungkin saudari boleh berkongsi rahsia yang membawa kepada kejayaan ini?

Among those who attended the launching ceremony were Deputy State Secretary (Administration), Datuk Maznah Haji Abdul Ghani and PETRONAS General Manager for Sabah and Labuan, Encik Joseph Podtung.

SHAFIQA

Namun apa yang paling penting ialah banyakkan doa, buat solat hajat serta Istiqamah dan Solat Dhuha agar dipermudahkan segala urusan serta diberi pertolongan dalam menghadapi setiap dugaan yang mendatang. Apakah yang mendorong saudari untuk berjaya dalam pengajian? Pada semester pertama, apabila saya mengetahui yang saya tersenarai dalam senarai Dekan, terus saya lebih bersemangat dan seterusnya mendorong saya untuk meningkatkan keputusan bagi penyenaraian Dekan UTM. Tambah bersemangat lagi, apabila dengan pencapaian tersebut, bantuan pinjaman daripada MARA telah ditukar kepada biasiswa.

Saya rasa yang paling penting ialah usaha, tidak ada jalan senang untuk berjaya. Semasa pengajian di KYS, saya sering berhubung dengan para pensyarah untuk mendapatkan lebih pengetahuan dan juga tentang perkara-perkara tidak difahami. 15

"Inputs gathered by the participants of the survey is crucial in developing database to be incorporated in the future Imbak Canyon Management Plan". He added, the database is crucial to determine the presence of very rare and endangered species, to estimate species diversity and richness within the area and to provide guidelines for wildlife conservation, among others. According to Dr. Waidi, the current lack of baseline data has prevented conservationists from identifying, quantifying and addressing suspected negative impact. “Most importantly, with the database, it will lead to effective implementation and enforcement of the area as a conservation area,” he added. The Management Plan is expected to be launched by November 2013. Present to officiate the forum was Dr. Laurentius Ambu (now Datuk), Director of Sabah Wildlife Department.

Tambah bersemangat lagi, apabila dengan pencapaian tersebut, bantuan pinjaman daripada MARA telah ditukar kepada biasiswa.

Saya rasa yang paling penting ialah usaha, tidak ada jalan senang untuk berjaya. Semasa pengajian di KYS, saya sering berhubung dengan para pensyarah untuk mendapatkan lebih pengetahuan dan juga tentang perkara-perkara tidak difahami. 15


BERITA KUMPULAN YAYASAN SABAH

Selain tersenarai dalam biasiswa MARA dan senarai Dekan, keluarga sayalah yang banyak mendorong untuk terus cemerlang dalam pengajian. Saya rasa, jika saya berjaya dalam pengajian, sedikit sebanyak saya dapat membalas pengorbanan dan kesukaran kedua ibu bapa semasa membesarkan kami semua.Tambah lagi, saya merupakan anak sulung, jadi saya ingin menjadi "Role model" kepada adik-adik saya.

kemudian, rezeki tiba apabila saya ditawarkan untuk berkerja sebagai Pembantu Tadbir di Felda Engineering Services Sdn Bhd (FESSB) di Jengka, Pahang.

Semasa mendapat gaji pertama, apa yang saudari buat dengan gaji tersebut? • Sudah tentulah saya berikan sebahagian daripada gaji pertama kepada orang tua saya bagi membantu meringankan beban bapa saya yang terpaksa menanggung enam lagi adik saya yang masih bersekolah.

Bagaimana dengan cabaran semasa meneruskan pengajian di KYS? • Banyak juga cabaran yang saya hadapi semasa belajar di KYS terutamanya persaingan dalam mencapai markah tertinggi setiap ujian dan mendapatkan mata keseluruhan (pointer) yang tertinggi. Saya akui bukan senang untuk mengekalkan keputusan yang cemerlang, tetapi saya terus berusaha dan berdoa.

Ceritakan pengalaman bekerja di FESSB. • Bekerja dengan FESSB, saya harus berhadapan dengan pelbagai jenis karakter dan perlu pandai berinteraksi serta menjaga perhubungan baik sebagai "negotiator." Walaupun pada mulanya agak susah namun saya seronok saya dapat menimba lebih banyak pengetahuan umum serta pengalaman yang tidak dapat dibeli dengan wang ringgit.

Oh! kadang-kadang, walaupun sibuk dengan pengajian, saya pandai "homesick" rindu dengan masakan ibu dan gelak-ketawa adik­ adik tetapi pada masa yang sarna saya kuatkan hati kerana perlu berdikari hidup sendiri, tanpa keluarga di sisi.

Akhir sekaU, nasihat saudari kepada rakan­ rakan yang sedang meneruskan pengajian. Bak kata pepatah, "Dimana ada kemahuan, di situ adajalan." Saya harap rakan-rakan yang sedang meneruskan pengajian berusahalah bersungguh-sungguh, untuk menjadi cemerlang. Kadangkala biarpun kita gagal atau jatuh berkali-kali, yang penting macam mana kuatnya kita berusaha untuk mencapai kejayaan yang kita idamkan. Setelah berusaha, kita juga kena banyak-banyak berdoa memohon pertolongan daripada pencipta kita, Allah SWT.

Saudari merupakan satu-satunya penerima anugerah yang menggondol kedua-dua Anugerah Pingat Emas dan Ketua Eksekutif. Bagaimana perasaan saudari ketika dimaklumkan? • Saya sangat-sangat bersyukur ke hadrat nahi kerana memberi peluang merasai nikmat mendapat anugerah ini. Sungguh! saya tidak menyangka saya akan menerima kedua-dua anugerah tersebut.

Di kesempatan ini, ribuan terima kasih saya ucapkan kepada warga KYS dan Kumpulan Yayasan Sabah kerana banyak membantu dalam kejayaan saya dan diberi peluang untuk menerima anugerah inL

Selepas menamatkan pengajian di KYS, ceritakan pengalaman saudari mencari pekerjaan. • Selepas tamat pengajian pa da Jun 2011, saya banyak mencari kerja di laman web seperti Jobstreet dan SPA. Tiga bulan

Encik Tommie Philip Lajawai - Principal Assistant Director, Department of Industrial Development & Research “The conference's contents are totally different from what we are doing as far as work is concerned. The conference has provided ideas on how we can enhance our performance. If we don't attend conference like this, then we will be stagnant, we will not get new ideas, inputs from good speakers who are trained to motivate, especially the government servants.”

On the speakers, Tommie said all the speakers are very good especially Dr. Varo - very inspiring, relevant and applicable in changing our mindset. “I want to attend conference like this in future and share the knowledge acquired from this conference to other staff.”

Puan Esther V. Mobilik - Librarian, Sabah State Library “This conference is very enlightening. I have learned new things, gain knowledge, experience and new friends. Leading from within as Maxwell said, “the most difficult person to lead is myself,” Lead myself!” “All the speakers are interesting especially Datuk Masidi's keynote address. All the topics covered are extremely relevant,

what a leader is supposed to be: 3600 leadership all over the place.” “I wish I can attend such conference in the future. More officers from the government sector should be given the opportunity to attend such conference too.”

Majlis Berbuka Puasa Bersama Warga Kumpulan Yayasan Sabah Pada bulan Ogos 2012 bersempena dengan bulan Ramadhan Al-Mubarak 1433 Hijrah, Kumpulan Yayasan Sabah (KYS) telah menganjurkan program Majlis Berbuka Puasa Bersama Warga KYS melalui pejabat-pejabat Zon di seluruh negeri. Objektif utama program ini adalah untuk mengimarahkan bulan Ramadhan, seterusnya untuk merapatkan ukhwah silaturrahim sempena bulan Ramadhan. Program ini banyak memberikan manfaat terutama sekali kepada golongan fakir miskin, anak-anak yatim, wargatua dan ibu tunggal dimana pelbagai bentuk sumbangan telah diagihkan kepada golongan tersebut oleh KYS.

Perbandaran Sandakan, Datuk Ir. James Wong serta pegawai-pegawai KYS dan para pemimpin di kawasan berkenaan.

Ms. Florita Totu - Supply Chain Manager, Kimanis Power Sdn. Bhd. “I had an unforgettable good time in the conference. The in-depth topics, good food and professional conduct from the YSG staffs made me happy allround... The most important thing for me is that I have made

many new important friends. Thank you very much for such a splendid conference! On the basis of this conference, I hope YSG will hold more of this kind of conference in the near future.”

Encik Hanafiah Diman - Chief Zone Administrator West Coast South Zone “Thank you very much for the Leaders Conference. Great success! I can imagine how much preparation was done in preparing the Conference. It was a very fruitful meeting. It is a pity that it was only conducted in a day.”

Ms. Diana Solibun - Human Resource Executive, Kimanis Power Sdn. Bhd. “The conference far exceeded my expectations. It showed me the depth of what we did not previously know and what we need to know or understand in being leaders. There is little I can suggest in the way of improving the conference. It was superb. Please again accept our genuine thank you for a superb conference and YSG's exceptional hospitality.”

Participants’

According to Tan Sri Khalil, the rich discussions the participants had during the conference certainly add valuable inputs to the true essence of the word leadership. He added, the conference will not

only help leaders reinvent and reposition themselves as strategic leaders of their organisations, it also brings exciting creative ideas, cutting-edge knowledge and winning practices by distinguished and successful personalities.

FEEDBACKS

Dr. Doreen Goh - Group Manager, Biotechnology & Horticulture Division “A very good forum for knowledgeable people to share with us and I hope we can practice what we have learned from this conference. All the speakers, especially Dr. Varo speaks from the heart, more interpersonal qualities are applied.” 7

Doreen said the topics were very relevant both in our works and life. The speakers taught us how to be a good leader and as a head of a division, it re-enforced what we have practiced as a leader. “I would definitely attend such forum in the future - very good and educational.”

Conference

LEADING FROM WITHIN Leveraging Lessons to Meet Future Challenges

T

he Human Resource Development Unit organised the Leaders Conference on 15 October 2012 at the Grand Ballroom Pacific Sutera, Sutera Harbour Resort. Themed “Leading from within: Leveraging Lessons to Meet Future Challenges”, the conference attracted 144 participants throughout Sabah, Malacca and the Federal Territory of Labuan.

Guest speaker, Dr. Edwin Varo, Chief Knowledge Officer of Perpetual Knowledge Development Sdn. Bhd. led in conducting the four-session conference. Three other speakers joined Dr. Varo in sharing their thoughts and experiences. They were Ms. Brenda Kua, Director of Noesis Consulting Sdn. Bhd., Mr. Selveen Muniandy, Principal Consultant of Interveen Sdn. Bhd. and Dato’ IR Haji Ahmad Murad bin Haji Omar, Vice President of The Institute of Marine Engineering Science & Technologies UK. In delivering his keynote address, the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, Datuk Masidi Manjun shared the ten common mistakes that that leader must avoid based on John Maxwell’s book.

complementary skills that would teach the followers not to compete but to complete them. “As a leader, you must be inclusive and not exclusive,” he added. Datuk Masidi also said that possessing a limiting attitude was another mistake by leaders who usually refused to accept ideas, suggestions and feedbacks from the employees. “This kind of leaders will not favour changes

According to Datuk Masidi, the first mistake commonly made by leaders is avoiding personal responsibility. “Leaders need to realise they are responsible to themselves and others. They should also realise that they need to lead themselves before leading others. Leaders should walk the talk,” he said. The second mistake by leaders was not building a leadership team, instead formed followers. In this respect, Datuk Masidi said, leaders should teach the team

and they show negative thinking towards the employees' proposals unless the ideas come from themselves,” he said. “As leaders, they must treat their employees fairly and reward them according to their contributions to the organisation. Do not baby sit employees who are troubled maker or lazy and do not allow yourself to be a slave to mediocrity,” he said. Datuk Masidi said, focusing too much on the problems would cause leaders to lose focus on 6

the strength of the organisation. “As leaders, you need to build and maintain the momentum. Momentum is how you motivate your workers to work hard by complimenting their efforts and good performance. One of the biggest diseases among leaders is the desire to please everyone when they should be focusing on doing what is right and not the most popular way to solve or do thing,” he added. He continued, not setting standards for the team could also lead to problems. “Leaders need to set standards and educate their employees to live by the standards. Failure to train people will result inefficient employees. There must be continuous education. There is no such thing as when I get my law degree, that's it,” he said. He also stressed that tolerating poor performance could jeopardise the organisation's performance as well as the management team that run the business. Another mistake was failing to create a conducive working environment because bad working environment will make people hate their work. “In order to create an excellent working environment, the organisation should have a significant mission, great leadership, value is placed on people, synergy among players and nurturing positive attitude,” said Datuk Masidi.
