In a bid to enhance the skills and capabilities of its administrators and faculty, Heritage Christian College has organised a four-day training programme focusing on Corporate Governance, Effective Leadership in Management & Administration, Team Building, and Communication Skills. The training was aimed at empowering the university’s staff with the tools necessary to excel in their roles and contribute to the institution’s growth and success.
The training was delivered by Mr. Samuel Kumi Ayim, CEO of the Centre for Transformational Leadership in Africa. He provided valuable insights and practical strategies to equip attendees with essential skills and knowledge.
The 4-day training programme featured the following modules:
Mr. Ayim shed light on the principles and practices of effective governance, emphasizing transparency, accountability, and ethical decision-making. The participants gained a deeper understanding of governance frameworks, compliance, and risk management strategies tailored to the university environment.
Participants explored various leadership principles, strategies for motivating teams, and the importance of strategic planning. Through interactive workshops and case studies, participants honed their leadership skills and learned how to foster a culture of innovation and continuous improvement.
Participants engaged in team-building activities, problem-solving exercises, and discussions on building cohesive and high-performing teams. The training emphasised the importance of fostering a collaborative atmosphere among faculty and staff.
Mr. Ayim emphasised the importance of effective communication as a cornerstone of success in any organisation.
