So­har In­ter­na­tional chair­man de­liv­ers in­spir­ing lead­er­ship speech

Muscat Daily - - CORPORATE NEWS -

Shar­ing his vast ex­pe­ri­ence span­ning across 35 years in­clud­ing his ser­vice in the mil­i­tary as well as the pri­vate sec­tor, Mo­hammed Mah­foud al Ardhi, Chair­man of So­har In­ter­na­tional was in­vited to speak to the se­nior and ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers of Oman­tel at their head­quar­ters, on his per­spec­tive on lead­er­ship in the ex­ist­ing en­vi­ron­ment and chal­leng­ing times.

Ardhi is the first speaker amongst many that will be shar­ing their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence through the newly in­tro­duced plat­form by Oman­tel.

The morn­ing ses­sion which was hosted and at­tended by Talal al Ma­mari, CEO of Oman­tel and other ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, ini­ti­ated with a wel­com­ing note from Oman­tel, fol­lowed by the in­spir­ing speech of Mo­hammed Mah­foud al

Ardhi. Soon af­ter the speech, the floor was opened for a Q&A ses­sion and the event fi­nally closed with a to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion be­ing handed over to Mo­hammed Mah­foud al Ardhi.

High­light­ing the im­por­tance of or­gan­is­ing and sup­port­ing such knowl­edge shar­ing plat­forms, Ardhi said, “With to­day’s rapidly chang­ing global econ­omy and its im­pact on busi­ness en­vi­ron­ments, it is cru­cial to un­der­stand the ever-chang­ing dy­nam­ics and make de­ci­sions in ac­cor­dance to that.

“By pro­vid­ing com­pre­hen­sive and strate­gic ad­vice, such knowl­edge shar­ing plat­forms en­able se­nior lead­ers to achieve their fullest po­ten­tial and drive the growth of their in­dus­tries and the econ­omy as a whole.”

Re­flect­ing his per­spec­tive on lead­er­ship, Ardhi said, “Lead­er­ship is not linked to po­si­tions. Great lead­ers recog­nise that the ul­ti­mate suc­cess of an or­gan­i­sa­tion is de­pen­dent upon its peo­ple. This in­cludes the se­nior most pro­fes­sion­als set­ting the vi­sion and strat­egy from the top and the team mem­bers ex­e­cut­ing the daily pri­or­i­ties and all of those in be­tween. Through­out my ca­reer, I have strived to take full ad­van­tage of each op­por­tu­nity and chal­lenge I have been for­tu­nate enough to ex­pe­ri­ence. In do­ing so, I came to un­der­stand that each in­di­vid­ual plays a role in a team’s suc­cess and fail­ure. Ev­ery­one on the team has a duty to achieve its ob­jec­tives.”

En­cap­su­lat­ing his lec­ture, Ardhi high­lighted upon, ‘The im­por­tance of Lead­er­ship’, ‘The Art of Lis­ten­ing’, the need for ‘Es­tab­lish­ing Strong Pro­cesses and Dis­ci­pline’ in bring­ing out the best in their teams and con­tinue ‘Learn­ing’ by em­brac­ing change and con­stantly chal­leng­ing one­self.

Con­clud­ing his talk to Oman­tel’s lead­er­ship team, Ardhi spoke about Oman’s great­est leader - His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said, his lead­er­ship, di­rec­tives and con­tri­bu­tions in the de­vel­op­ment of Oman and its re­gions which have set the na­tion on a pro­jected path to­wards growth, pros­per­ity and suc­cess.
