Alignment 360-The Leadership Workshop

SRM University-AP conducted the first-ever three-day leadership workshop with the theme Alignment 360 to help individuals at the university align their values, goals, and behaviours holistically. 57 leadership team members from academic, non-academic, top management and the President’s office participated in the event held from March 17 to 19, 2023, at Riviera Beach Resort, Chirala. The workshop aimed to enable individuals and teams to clarify their core values and goals and develop an action plan to align their behaviour and decision-making with these values and goals.

Honourable Pro-Chancellor of SRM University-AP, Dr P Sathyanarayanan, expressed how glad he is over the workshop’s theme and put forth his vision and mission to locate SRM University-AP as the number one higher education institution in the upcoming years. Prof. Manoj K Arora, Vice Chancellor of SRM University-AP, kick-started the workshop by welcoming all and introducing the purpose of the workshop. He gave the task to the leadership team to formulate the next five years’ Strategic Goals and Operational goals.

The programme covered various aspects of alignment, including personal values, organisational culture, communication, leadership, and strategy. Through interactive exercises, discussions, and self-reflection, participants learn how to identify their values and goals, assess their current alignment, and develop strategies to improve alignment. The ultimate goal was to help individuals and organisations become more effective and efficient by aligning their behaviour with their core values and goals. By creating a shared understanding of values and goals, teams can work together more cohesively and make decisions that are consistent with their overarching mission and purpose. This, in turn, can lead to increased productivity, better morale, and improved outcomes.

Mr Chand and Mr Harish from Hum Consulting conducted the workshop and kept the audience enthralled and involved through various activities. Team building, Leadership roles, Target achievements, Conflict management and other activities were completed. The workshop concluded with a gala dinner and entertainment evening at the beach with the theme, Unwinding by the sea.
