Positive attitude

Dawn Gibson

SENIOR officials of the Agriculture Ministry have been reminded of the importance of keeping a positive attitude towards their work.

Speaking to the officials at a two-day workshop in Lami last week, minister Lieutenant-Colonel Inia Seruiratu said change was an important aspect of their work.

"Change is important as it is something that cannot be avoided," he said.

"An individual becomes irrelevant if he or she cannot manage changes that come their way."

Lt-Col Seruiratu said change starts from individuals.

"It must start from us — to bring about change we must understand the reasons and the role we play within the organisation."

The workshop allowed 32 participants the opportunity to learn about managing changes in the environment and weather.

"To move leadership to another level, we have to be result-centered," the minister concluded.
