An International Consultant in Capacity Building and Technology Madam Carina Baum has urged members of the University of Cape Coast Branch of Graduate Association of University Women (GAUW) to develop positive attitude in their respective offices.
Delivering a presentation on “Motivation and Commitment to Work, the Israeli Experience” at a workshop for members of GAUW, Madam Baum advised them to exhibit attitudes that would end up producing successful results. She noted that positive attitude should be visible in the personality of every staff in an establishment adding that “A positive attitude starts with a smile”.
Madam Baum highlighted the need to work as a team at the work place and called on the women to share knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the vision and mission of the University. She noted that team work can be achieved if people learn to accept their strengths and weakness and added that “Look at yourself honestly, understand your passions, temperament and limitations”.
The International Consultant said “the more we accept and look into ourselves the easier it is to appreciate and accept others.” She said the women should challenge themselves to succeed in their work saying, “Challenges are good, life is often about taking choices and making decisions”. She entreated them to share ideas and believe in their abilities to make changes wherever they find themselves.
The President of the GAUW-UCC, Mrs. Mildred Asmah encouraged the women to make a difference in their respective departments. She said the Association was opened to female staff of the University with a minimum of bachelor’s degree.
