Every leader need to possess excellent characters in certain aspects that are considered critical in carrying out their duties such as integrity and the right attitude, knowledgeable, skilful, capable and has a great leadership with a strategic thinking and far sighted vision. An effective leader must show their commitment in carrying out his or her duties and responsibilities efficiently as it is the main key towards boosting the staff motivation. Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohd Daud, Minister at the Prime Minister's Office was speaking during a Khatam Al-Quran ceremony for the participants of Young Executive Programme. The ceremony was held on, 18th May late afternoon, at the Sultan Sharif Ali Islamic University, UNISSA.
Yang Berhormat further added that, in carrying out duty and responsibility as a leader, an opinion or theory in planning alone is insufficient and will not bring any success or outcome, let alone a quality result. Therefore, it is important to be wise in strategy planning that is in line with a solid and systematic implementation as well as a continuous monitoring and supervision from time-to-time. Yang Berhormat also reminded that a leader need to be trustworthy in work. The responsibility shouldered in a leader is not something to be proud of. Trust is a big and heavy responsibility and that one should be careful in carrying out the duty. These are the characters of an influential Muslim in carrying out the trust in work.
Earlier, the Young Executive Programme participants from the 1st to the 4th cohort held a Khatam Al-Quran ceremony. The ceremony began with the reading of Surah Al-Fatihah, followed with Lazim verses led by Awang Muhammad Fakhri bin Haji Abd Hakip, a representative from the 4th cohort. Up until now, 3 cohorts of the Young Executive Programme has completed their course, while the 4th cohort is still ongoing.
