During Workshop, Dr. Melsa & Dr. Gmelch advised the participating new leaders: "Be very clear why you want to be in a leadership position; become centered in your philosophy, values & beliefs; build a multilayered support network; develop your team; pay attention to national issues; collaborate well with others; find personal-professional balance; and, above all, take care of yourself-physically, socially, intellectually." Both of them made the participants awakened about the conceptual understanding towards the workshop: "Effective leadership is to build a community of Colleagues; Setting Direction; and, empowering others."  The Deans are also supposed to help Top Management Team to help in preparing next five year strategic Plan- extremely important for future.



Thanking the visiting US scholars, on behalf of all the participants, the Vice Chancellor of LPU Dr. Kanwar assured them that the training at the workshop is certain to bring forth trained academic leaders to achieve excellence in Research and Education not only in Punjab but India also.  On contacting, Dr. Verma and Dr. Sareen, respectively from Gurdaspur and Landra, also revealed their enthusiastic happiness towards the productive conclusion of the workshop.

 

 The day two of the workshop covered seven valuable topics: Measurements; Team-work; Facilitative Leadership; Empowerment; Performance Backing; Personal Development; and, Chairs and Deans Reading. Whereas, day one had elaborations on Adventures in Academic Leadership-transition from academic to leader; Strategic thinking; Visionary Leadership; Values and Systems Thinking; Decision Making; Communications; and, Conflict Management.
