Imbibe culture of self development, Abidoye urges OPL employees

A would be successful employee must imbibe the culture of self development, ethics and critical values of his organisation.

A guest lecturer and life coach, Mr. Jeffrey Olu’ Abidoye made the assertion in his  lecture at a  capacity building and seminar organised by the management of Owena Press Limited, publishers, of The Hope newspapers, for its staff .

Abidoye  averred  that  for an employee to perform optimally, he   must improve on his competence and self confidence.

He said: “The true mark of competence is complimentary remarks from your  colleagues, boss and above all your employer. Seek every opportunity to learn new ideas and skills, put them into practice quickly and have an undying culture of reading daily and researching” he emphasised.

According to him: “The  spirit of impunity is on the prowl and that Nigerians  seem  to have lost the sense of what is proper and honourable.”

While saying that Nigeria is suffering from a severe shortage of integrity, honesty and faithfulness, he noted that it  has become the constant rule of engagement in public life and private living for many people to  cheat and lie, as if it is an acceptable norm and tradition in our society.

Abidoye said that the place of character, skills, and integrity in work place cannot be  over emphasised.

Abidoye explained  that organizational ethics came from the historic tradition of professional code of ethics, adding that the media has a long  tradition of code of ethics which include fundamental honesty, fairness in selling, financial reporting among  several others.

He therefore highlighted the visible weak links in many work places today to include  lateness, excellence, passion and energy lack of speed ideas, initiative for the smallest task, lack of commitment and ownership.

Earlier, the Chairman/Editor in Chief of the company, Sir Ademola Adetula said  training and retraining of  staff is one of his  cardinal principles, and therefore enjoined all staff to always be committed and efficient  in service delivery.

He charged them to maximize their time for better output and think outside the box by coming up with ideas that will benefit  their existence.

Adetula also urged them to key into his agenda of rebranding the company for enhanced productivity and performance while  assuring them  series of training programmes,  workshops, empowerment and pep talks  lined up for all  the staff.
