KUCHING: Organising courses and training programmes is imperative to ensure that an organisation remain relevant in facing global challenges as well as to increase the knowledge and skills of staff, says State Secretary Datuk Amar Jaul Samion.

For instance, he elaborated, the course done by Sarawak Tropical Peat Research Institute (Tropi) that focused on five principals—personal mastery, mental models, shared vision, team learning and system thinking—was to enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants.

“Do apply whatever knowledge and skills gained from the course to ensure that the organisation is in the best position to serve the people better.

“That’s what you are doing here, it’s about practicing what you learnt and to apply it to your job,” he said during the closing of the five-day Personal Mastery and Tram Effectiveness Programme held at Tropi near here.

Jaul said mastering knowledge was not enough as knowledge must be combined with the skills to drive the organisations ahead.

He was also happy to see that Tropi had grown in terms of capability and achievement.

The programme, which started on Feb 17, saw the participation of 26 officers and support staff, including Tropi director Dr Lulie Melling and senior officers.
