THE Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana (ICAG) in partnership with The Pacific Institute (TPI) have organised a four-day seminar for members of ICAG to enable them to improve and enhance their performance as accountants. The programme dubbed “Investment in Excellence: The practice of peak performance” was to help participants gain insights into areas of personal, professional and organisational growth opportunities through professional facilitated study and discussions.
Participants were taken through various topics such as "grow into it", "belief is the key", "how the mind works", "disputing negativity", "warranted self-esteem", “‘see yourself into it", among others.
The Senior Project Director of TPI, Mr Antowaine Richardson, who facilitated the programme said based on the results of current research in the cognitive sciences, the programme sought to address the very foundation of all change processes in the human mind.
“It provides easy to understand and easy to implement tools to change attitudes and belief in areas where we may be holding ourselves back to promote self examination and reflection."
He said "Investment in Excellence" went to the very core of quality improvement, performance enhancement and employee engagement for effective human thinking skills to assist in creating a constructive culture with a common language, a renewed sense of accountability and an interest in positive contribution.
The Executive Director of ICAG, Mr Kwesi Asante, said the programme was also to help the participants to go beyond their financial responsibilities to discover the key to unlocking their human potential and build extraordinary organisational performance and corporate culture at their various organisations.
He was grateful to the facilitators for the life transforming seminar and appealed to other members of the institute to be part of the A next seminar.
