4-Day Training Workshop For Senior Members In Administration, Opens In ATU

The inaugural session of a 4-day training workshop facilitated by Mr. Dotun Osiyemi, Principal consultant and a CEO of Doterrys Consultant Limited, has called on Senior Members in Administration to channel their managerial and administrative traits in making the University the preferred destination for academic training.
Touching on some 8 pillars of successful organisations, Mr. Dotun highlighted good communication, effective managerial systems, quality service and good costumer experience among others, as the hallmark of effective organisational practice that translates into meaningful growth. He added that poor communication, complacency and a lethargic attitude towards work are traits attributed to organisations that are marching on a trajectory of failure.
Mr. Osiyemi, suggested that for Accra Technical University to rise to the citadel of managerial and administrative distinction, it must prioritise the grooming of an effective team that has the fundamental awareness of self-discipline, positive affirmation and an unbridled conviction in setting goals and achieving success.
In a short address, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Samual Nii Odai noted that the importance of having a good team is not in the quality of individual players but in the cohesion the individual players exhibit towards the achievement of the collective goal.
“In the short period I have been here, I appreciate the individual work you put up daily, but it is important we improve on them. You can have all the good individual players in your team, but the team can still be weak. We must work hard to address the administrative weakness for the better”, the Vice -Chancellor said.
He challenged the administrators to put in their best in addressing some administrative loopholes that have existed for long, and better the ones that have worked brilliantly.
The workshop training will in the coming days touch on other areas of administration and coach Senior Members in administration on how to channel the right energy into making the University the doyen of higher learning in Ghana.
