Prof Dwivedi attends workshop at UGC-HRDC Punjab University
Aligarh, March 22: Maj Gen Dr G G Dwivedi, Professor, Faculty of International Studies, Aligarh Muslim University recently attended a workshop on ?Value Based Leadership? held at UGC-HRDC Punjab University, Chandigarh.
During his address on the topic of ?Redefining Art and Practice of Leadership? at the workshop, Prof Dwivedi said that leadership is about impact through influence and not wielding authority, which amounts to merely exercising headmanship.
?Leadership in essence is action per se, and not synonymous to position,? said Prof Dwivedi. He also talked at length on ?leadership without authority? with Mahatma Gandhi as a case in point.
In the valedictory address, Prof Dwivedi highlighted that while leadership development has emerged as a billion $ industry, yet there is visible leadership deficit across the spectrum.
During the conclusion of the workshop, Prof Dwivedi also pointed out that the hyper pace of change driven by technology coupled with intricacies and complexities are posing serious challenges to the leaders of the day. He added that past templates are grossly inadequate to crack the current or future problems.
