Mr. John McMorrow, Consultant at Leadership and Management Australia (LMA) facilitated a three day workshop on ‘Goal Setting and Mentoring’ to the students of Kathmandu College of Management (KCM). The workshop began from 4th June and ended on the 6th of June.
On the first day of the workshop, he talked about mentoring and success. “Leaders take their staffs from where they are to where they have never been before” he shared. Moreover, he mentioned that a good mentor doesn’t just give answers to the questions, but rather helps find out the answer within the mentee. Mentoring, he described is having a positive effect on the life and affairs of another person as a result of one-to-one contact.
John also emphasized that in business today, qualifications are not as important as making connections. He informed how success is not a shortcut, but an investment of enough time, effort and energy.
The second day of his workshop focused on goal setting. He shared how there are two types of people- above the line and below the line. Above the line people are positive and proactive who are responsible and solution oriented; whereas below the line individuals are negative and reactive, who blame and focus on problems. You should direct yourself to be an above the line person to make it big in life, he informed.
On the final day of the workshop, John revisited the contents discussed on the previous days and additionally talked about having a balance on the wheel of life -consisting of family life, mental growth, spiritual well being, social bonding, financial success, and physical health. “Work hard, play hard, and keep everything in balance” he said.
