eventSIG Leadership Drive: Challenges a Leader faces

5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

* Registration is Mandatory

People don’t fail because they don’t have any goal or a plan. They fail because of wrong strategy or tactics. Leadership is not through position, title, or power but leadership is through actions. Successful leaders know what to do in the times of adversity and prosperity.

Is the leadership being a role model or is it acting before the crisis? Is leadership leading the under performers to peak performance or is it coaching the good to greatness? What is the real leadership?

It’s not what you know but how quickly you learn from others. So let’s learn from the experienced who have established the footprint of success for others to learn in the upcoming OPEN SIG Drive by meeting our worthy panelists “ Mr. Wahaj Siraj CEO of Nayatel, and Mr. Ather Imran, CEO of Sybrid Pakistan” at 5 pm on 30 September 2016 at the Hive Islamabad.
