Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University (HBMeU) recently held a session titled ‘An Hour with The Chancellor’, which was part of a series of activities held in April in line with its social activities programme called “Tawasol”.
A total of 28 administrative and executive staff attended the inaugural session, which provided an opportunity for staff to have an informal meeting with HBMeU chancellor Dr Mansoor Al Awar to discuss leadership skills and exchange ideas and views.
The participants asked a wide range of questions during the hour-long session related to the university’s vision and topics on leadership skills and styles, a statement from HBMeU said.
With the success of the inaugural session, the participants have requested HBMeU to make it a regular activity for the staff, the statement said.
Fahad Al Saadi, resources and institutional capabilities, assistant chancellor, HBMeU, said: “The university endeavors to regularly communicate and interact with the staff as part of continuing efforts to enhance the internal environment at HBMeU and ensure that its goals and objectives are aligned with the expectations of the staff and faculty members.”
“The recent session proved to be an excellent venue for the administrative and executive staff to directly engage with Dr Al Awar, as the staff got the opportunity to discuss about best practices and participate in a healthy exchange of ideas.”
“The success of this activity further reaffirms the commitment to be responsive to the needs of all members of the university, including staff, faculty and learners. We will definitely organise similar activities to promote stronger relations and promote open communication within the university,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
