Identity Establishment

It is vital at the onset of a new creation to establish an identity consonant with its vision and mission. The members and the elected office bearers have a mandate to translate these goals into reality, which is why the membership profile is so important. They must be people of strong credibility as well as with willingness to serve in whatever capacities they are gifted in. Undergirding these is a staywire that unite them all without any personal objectives. The achievement of the greater goals must be the constant focus in all deliberations and decision-making.

Organizations are but shells and names through which people operate. At the onset, the creation of a right culture is so important that not paying attention to it can lead to the development of divisive thinking, internal politiking and abuse of facilities and resources. A strong leadership must constantly watch for signs of any fallout and restore order and unity before the identity of Persatuan is modified through bickering and division. Many an organization failed or are weakened due to failure to detect and rectify their weaknesses. Like a tree that need regular pruning, so an organization need a similar correction process. It is crucial that Persatuan members, committee, staff, volunteers and even parents of trainees be regularly re-committed to our vision so that we stay on course to what we set out to do.
