The Dean’s Leadership course, hosted by Dr. Adil Haider, was a roaring success this past week. In collaboration with Karachi School of Business and Leadership, the course was host to high-profile speakers including Professor Gerard M. Doherty from Harvard, Talha Ameer Khan from KSBL, Zafar Masud from BOP, Zubayr Soomro, Paul Keijzer, and Adnan Afridi. The participants included Associate Deans, Department Chairs, Section Heads, Vice Chairs, Directors of Academic Programs from various departments.
The course provided a common core of leadership skills for both clinical and non-clinical faculty, including those serving in basic health sciences and public health.
The key takeaways were learning humility in leadership, the hazards of micromanaging, and how good leaders handle tough periods of time, specially by recognizing their mistakes.
The highlight of the talk was the touching speech given by President Sulaiman Shahabuddin, which was very personal and illuminating as to how leaders are born in this part of the world.
