Student Leadership Program holds Fish! workshop
The Student Leadership Program (SLP) of the Office of Student Affairs, in collaboration with Human Capital Management Solutions (HCMS), held the FISH! Workshop on Monday, October 28. The workshop was organized as part of the Student Training and Workshop Series. Fifteen AUS students attended the event.
The FISH! Workshop helps unleash passion and potential by getting students to understand the four basic interconnected practices: Be There, Play, Make their Day and Choose Your Attitude. It also demonstrates how students can have a powerful impact in the way they communicate, grow and build relationships at their places of study, work and in their personal lives. The workshop allows the students to experience and take-away a revived approach on being better holistic individuals and leaders of the future. With thousands of organizations worldwide having brought FISH! into their work culture, this will give the students an advantage after graduation.
"The FISH! Workshop comes under the SLP's Student Training and Workshop Series which aims to improve students' interpersonal and communication skills," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. "Integration of theoretical learning with practical experience is very essential for students. Practical training increases students' understanding of theoretical knowledge, retention and their motivation to study. Training workshops prepare students to be credible, creative and proficient, which eventually produces accomplished graduates."
The workshop was delivered by a certified US-based Charthouse Learning facilitator-trainer, Mudassir Nagaria, an AUS alumnus and former active member of the Student Leadership Program.
Christian Momah, a junior majoring in chemical engineering, said, "The FISH! workshop presented an old idea in a fascinating way. It is a principle which when made a practice can change the whole way a person or an organization operates. After the FISH! workshop, I vowed to be a more proactive person."
