Organizations fail to deliver without teamwork

A second leadership training programme was organized by Labour Education Foundation for Lady Health Worker’s in Karachi. 22 Lady Health workers participated in it belonging from 6 different units of Karachi. Workshop covered three topics. Talking on “constitution” Nasir Mansoor said that constitution is set of laws that members make for the smooth functioning of the organization. It implies to members, representatives, leaders and staff. The members should be fully aware of its constitution and should keep amending it for its better implementation. Mushtaq Ali Shan discussed “Team work and its importance”.  He said that two or more people working for a collective goal are termed as team work and with this solutions of many problems can be sought. Organizations fail to work successfully in the absence of team work. Zahra Akbar Khan took session on “Record Keeping”. She said that organizational record should be maintained such as activity register, membership form files, membership fee register, cash books, ledger book, visit book, letter pads, receipts books etc. If they are maintained then the working will be easy, time will be saved and membership will increase.
