Maha Al-Hadithi inspired us in one of the seminars at pnu, but who is Maha Al-Hadithi. She is a business leader and owns an digital marketing company . Her story began when she was in high school where she was superior and hardworking but Maha could not enter the university specialization that she wanted. She had two options computer science and English. Although she could not enter the specialization which she want , she did not stop and She had the skills, strength and determination that made her continue to progress. She never stopped. And she was adapt. Before the event, I was very enthusiastic. I was interested in entrepreneurship and the event was about a great entrepreneur. that changed my idea from some of my misconceptions. she manage and own a project and develop herself in a field other than its field of her specialization and now I agree with her anybody can develop its self in a different ways. For me, my specialty is accounting, but I love art and I hope to open a project for paintings and I do not think it is impossible anymore, this was my PDP Adaptability skills. Adaptability as a skill refers to the ability of a person to change his actions, course or approach to doing things in order to suit a new situation and Its encompasses being able to effect changes in a course of action with smoothness and timeliness(1), without any major setbacks and It is an important skill and it build in personality with experiences and is an important for the person to continue to progress in his or her professional and academic life. After graduating I worked for a company in Ghalia in the company Ghalih got experience and then moved from one company to another and one day began to read about marketing and began passionately and also did not neglect her job despite the obstacles and she has been giving importance of continuous self-learning and here is a video that tells you how can you master self learning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7z8PvHSyfs . The importance of self-learning as a weapon of the present and the future is growing to face the ignorance, learning in its broadest sense throughout human life, whether the source of this learning is school, The Internet or the media or through personal observations at any time and in any place, so that the human employ the skills of learning that he has acquired and acquires at all times in the development of itself and upgrade them behaviorally and cognitively. The company that she worked wanted to Promote her as a manager but she said I would not become a manager, I’m a leader.
She really motivated me and I felt a lot of enthusiasm when I was presence in the symposium and that was very important for the Listeners. Motivation is an important part of leading a group of people, especially the when you have a project. These are the most important qualities that entrepreneurs need to motivate their employees and that to increase them performance. A leader needs to communicate in a way that makes people feel what they need to do. As a leader of a large group you have to keep in mind that people need to believe in you and know that you’re behind any given message. It’s not only what you say but truly what you feel and believe. This rule reminds all of us, and leaders in particular, that emotions are a powerful motivator or, in some cases, a de motivator. We’re social creatures who need interaction, and you use that to make points when they’re important enough. When you deliver a message face to face, it’s strikingly different than when you do some kind of mass communication. If we’re going to have impact as leaders, we have a responsibility to communicate directly, eyeball to eyeball, and with authenticity. Leadership can be defined as a person persuading other people in a particular group and acting as role model. It role is to convince people by pursuing and achieving desired goals. To be successful, individuals must follow this method and implement it (3).
Setting a goal and a clear vision for personal planning . goal is an idea of the future or desired result that a person or a group of people envisions, plans and commits to achieve and vision statement is an organization’s declaration of its mid-term and long-term goals. Vision statements are often confused with mission statements. Also there are many.
In conclusion, I agree with them in many aspects, but it is not easy for everyone and needs effort and perseverance to reach these goals and I think being not rush in projects will reduces risks, especially if you have a partner with experience in the field. I think I had learn many thing from her and this will change Many things in myself there is no more important than patience and diligence and to face difficulty in something will not stop but I will look for something else and if I make mistakes I will learn from my mistake and I will not despair If I did not achieve my goal I can achieve another goal.
