LAHORE, Pakistan: Soliton Technologies invited Dr. Rick Arrowood (Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts USA) to deliver a session on “Building Dynamic Teams to Better Solve Problems”.
Business leaders have frequently identified teamwork and problem-solving skills as being key competencies for an organization’s success. The workshop explored individual personality types and preferences coupled with leadership behaviors, and offered attendees an opportunity to understand why some teams are highly effective, and others are less effective, along with how others could work better together.
Dr. Rick Arrowood is a distinguished thought leader with over three decades of experience in nonprofit organizations and global leadership, holding positions in academia, organizational leadership, and consulting for some of the largest global companies. He is a former Associate Professor at Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies and is now an Adjunct Professor at Northeastern University D’Amore-McKim School of Business.
Dr. Rick Arrowood said, “It’s my first time in Pakistan, and I am loving every bit of it, especially the Pakistani food. Soliton event reminded me why I enjoy sharing leadership teachings with anyone willing to listen and learn. Attendees genuinely wanted to learn about ways they could create teams that work better than together. Soliton Technologies has a huge potential to grow and positively impact people’s lives. With good leaders in place, you can become the industry leaders.”
He also expressed the dire need to play a leadership role in rescuing and helping the Pakistani flood victims in need.
It was a highly interactive session in which participants enthusiastically participated.
The event was also well-received by the Twitter audience and was trending on the Twitter trend panel for over three hours.
In light of Pakistan’s ongoing monsoon floods, caused by the heaviest rainfall the country has seen in over three decades, Dr. Mansoor Khan (Chairman of Soliton Technologies) encouraged the attendees to step forward and demonstrate their civic duty by taking on a leadership role to help the flood victims financially, physically, and emotionally.
Dr. Mansoor Khan said, “It’s heart-wrenching that hundreds of thousands of Pakistani men, women, and children have lost all they had built over their lifetimes. I hope the flood will be an eye-opener, and motivate the nation to reorder its priorities.”
As per UNOCHA – “Heavy monsoon rainfall and floods have affected some 2.3 million people in Pakistan since mid-June, destroying at least 95,350 houses and damaging some 224,100 more. Sindh and Balochistan are the two most affected provinces in terms of human and infrastructural impact. Over 504,000 livestock have been killed, nearly all of them in Balochistan Province, while damages to nearly 3,000 km of roads and 129 bridges have impeded access across flood-affected areas.”
