Kochi: A P M Mohammed Hanish IAS, MD of Kochi Metro and Supplyco, inaugurated an international seminar on ‘Leadership for Success’ organised by Centre for Behavioural Sciences and Research in Rajagiri College of Social Sciences. The chief resource persons were Dr. Philip Laird and Jordyn from Trinity Western University, Canada. In addition to the participants from India, there were delegates from various universities in South Korea, Germany, Argentina, France and Italy. The seminar saw the presentation of 34 research papers.

Mohammed Hanish, referring to the present situation in corporates and society, said that leadership qualities are increasing, but are not backed by service mindedness. He suggested several practical remedies to reduce stress while facing difficult decision-making situations. “One such method, Yoga, was of great help to me while taking over as the MD of Kochi Metro Rail Limited,” he said.

“The continuity of professionalism, speed of work and the huge expansion of Metro, including Water Metro, present a demanding situation where fast and wise decisions have to be taken. Only people with leadership qualities in each layer of work can lead the company to success. Such seminars will help raise leadership qualities to the levels required in future,” he said.

Dr. Laird, from Canada, conducted a class on ‘Leadership dynamics in group and management settings.’ Jordyn went in detail about the leadership lessons from her long stint of working for homeless youth in different provinces in Canada.

A formal agreement between Rajagiri and Trinity Western University was signed by Fr. Jose Alex, CMI, and Dr. Philip Laird in the presence of Mohammed Hanish. Fr.Jose Alex CMI, Director, Rajagiri; Dr. Joseph I Injodey, Executive Director; and Dr. Benoy Joseph, Principal, spoke on the occasion. Fr. Dr. Varghese K Varghese, HOD of Rajagiri Centre for Behavioural Science and Research welcomed the gathering and Fr. Dr. Joshy V A proposed the vote of thanks.
