“Do your best, and be a little better than you are.”
― Gordon B. Hinckley
Today I had the opportunity to meet Dr.Alaa Garad.(picture enclosed)
Although Dr.Garad has an impressive professional profile and lots of successes under his belt ,I don’t want to juxtapose my awe toward Dr.Alaa but rather to give an overview about our meeting as such. Communication between parties was fruitful and challenging. I found myself furnishing lots of good practices and establishing the existing gaps within our cultural boundaries. Under the myriads of information we have managed to disclose our desire to strive for excellence and decided on future plan on what we can do not only to build professional bridges but also to innovate the existing services.Dr.Garad is so passionate about IIP and organizational learning and came up with lots of ideas about building up a professional bridge. The meeting had resonated with me because of its strong bond. The discussion extended to social networking, how well we represent our people, including our relationship with coworker, people who uses our services and not at last our professional colleagues. Nevertheless the meeting was a beautiful mixture of cultural blend bringing together the need to address our equality and diversity agenda and the existing gaps between international borders.
Although we discussed the pros and cons in such professional manner hence the mixing of good and bad came up as natural and healthy agenda. As many of us are just adept to build up a social or professional network Dr.Garad and I, decided to nurture our relationship and establish some type of working relationship.
As for me, I believe in building professional bridges and I believe in social connection. Very often changes are, many of your connection could help you in whatever capacity .I believe in nurturing relationship as well providing ethical ground and transparencies in our work patterns. I believe that we can strive for the better and we can deem toward excellence by default.I believe that we can make use of our connection hence we can easily build bridges. As Aristotle said, ‘Excellence is a habit.’ I would say furthermore that excellence is made constant through the feeling that comes right after one has completed a work which he/she himself/herself finds undeniably awe-inspiring.” Excellence is a habit indeed. We harvest what we plant. Therein the need to get use to the idea that we become what we practice.
I would like to thank again to Dr.Garad.For giving me the opportunity to share my love for my work, my passion for quality and innovation. To share my ideas and dreams, to discuss personal development plan, career goals and milestones achieved and not at last to give me the opportunity to build a professional bridge.
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”― Aristotle
