Suttur, April 23, 2024: Dr. B. Suresh, Director of the Technical Education Division at JSS Mahavidyapeetha, emphasized the pivotal role of proper decision-making in becoming an effective leader. His insights were shared during the personality development camp organized by Jagadguru Sri Veerasimhasana Mahasamsthana Math, in collaboration with Sri Shivarathreeshwara Dharmika Datti and JSS Mahavidyapeetha. The camp, held for students of JSS Ayurveda, Speech and Hearing, and Nursing Colleges at Sri Sutturkshetra from April 19 to 21, 2024, aimed to nurture leadership qualities among participants.

In his engaging session titled ‘Leadership Qualities,’ Dr. Suresh emphasized the importance of having a clear aim and perseverance in achieving success. He remarked, “True leadership stems from the ability to make sound decisions, foster camaraderie, and respect all individuals. Merely possessing knowledge is insufficient to assume leadership; one must also possess the ability to navigate challenging circumstances. Meaningful interactions and discussions occur when we surround ourselves with individuals of integrity. Leadership is attainable only when these principles are understood and practiced.”
