BUKIT MERTAJAM: Hari ini kira-kira 5,000 penuntut Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) cawangan Permatang Pauh pula mengadakan perhimpunan aman memprotes cadangan Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim agar universiti itu dibuka kepada pelajar bukan Bumiputera.

Kumpulan penuntut itu yang turut memakai pakaian serba hitam diketuai Yang Dipertua Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar (MPP) universiti itu, Mohd Faizal Zainol di Padang UiTM Permatang Pauh sejak jam 9 pagi selama sejam sambil menyanyikan lagu rasmi universiti serta lagu patriotik seperti 'Anak Kecil Bermain Api'. Mereka turut membawa pelbagai sepanduk bertulis 'Hidup Melayu', 'UiTM Milik Melayu' dan 'Jangan Jual Bangsa Melayu' sambil melaung-laungkan kemarahan terhadap Abdul Khalid.

Perhimpunan itu berakhir selepas Mohd Faizal menyerahkan memorandum yang ditandatangani mereka kepada Timbalan Pengarah Bahagian Akademik UiTM, Dr Mohd Abdullah Hemdi. Mohd Abdullah memberitahu pemberita bahawa memorandum itu akan diserahkan kepada Naib Canselor UiTM, Prof Datuk Seri Ibrahim Abu Shah untuk dikumpulkan sebelum diserahkan kepada Menteri Besar Selangor. Sementara itu, Mohd Faizal berkata pelajar UiTM kesal dengan tindakan Abdul Khalid itu kerana sanggup mengemukakan syor yang dianggapnya menjual maruah bangsa di tanah air sendiri.

"Kalau Abdul Khalid tidak tarik balik kenyataan beliau, semua warga UiTM akan mengadakan perhimpunan besar-besaran di Shah Alam. "Kami berharap isu kuota bukan Bumiputera untuk masuk ke UiTM sebagai pelajar tidak perlu dibincangkan lagi. Kami kesal Abdul Khalid membelakangkan hak kaum sendiri," katanya. Semalam kira-kira 20,000 penuntut cawangan UiTM di enam kampus iaitu di Seri Iskandar (Perak), Arau (Perlis), Bandar Jengka (Pahang), Melaka, Sungai Petani (Kedah) dan Kuala Terengganu (Terengganu) mengadakan perhimpunan bantahan di seluruh negara. Penuntut di kampus induk di Shah Alam, Selangor dan cawangan di Machang, Kelantan mengadakan perhimpunan yang sama pada Rabu lalu. - Bernama

Urgent call to all Private Sector MNC!!!Do not hire a single UiTM student in your company.They prefer to walk at the roadside in black,rather than doing job to increase your company's productivity.Besides that,they will demand for 100% Bumiputera in your company in order for them to work happily in your company.Be careful.....Welcome to Malaysia and Malaysia boleh....

We the Rakyat, should evaluate and determine the kind of Leaders we want for our beloved country, Malaysia

Here are the Top 10 Qualities of a Good Leader

By David Hakala


Leadership can be defined as one's ability to get others to willingly follow. Every organization needs leaders at every level. Leaders can be found and nurtured if you look for the following character traits:

A leader with vision has a clear, vivid picture of where to go, as well as a firm grasp on what success looks like and how to achieve it. But it’s not enough to have a vision; leaders must also share it and act upon it. Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric Co., said, "Good leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision and relentlessly drive it to completion."

A leader must be able to communicate his or her vision in terms that cause followers to buy into it. He or she must communicate clearly and passionately, as passion is contagious.

A good leader must have the discipline to work toward his or her vision single-mindedly, as well as to direct his or her actions and those of the team toward the goal. Action is the mark of a leader. A leader does not suffer “analysis paralysis” but is always doing something in pursuit of the vision, inspiring others to do the same.

Integrity is the integration of outward actions and inner values. A person of integrity is the same on the outside and on the inside. Such an individual can be trusted because he or she never veers from inner values, even when it might be expeditious to do so. A leader must have the trust of followers and therefore must display integrity.

Honest dealings, predictable reactions, well-controlled emotions, and an absence of tantrums and harsh outbursts are all signs of integrity. A leader who is centered in integrity will be more approachable by followers.

Dedication means spending whatever time or energy is necessary to accomplish the task at hand. A leader inspires dedication by example, doing whatever it takes to complete the next step toward the vision. By setting an excellent example, leaders can show followers that there are no nine-to-five jobs on the team, only opportunities to achieve something great.

Magnanimity means giving credit where it is due. A magnanimous leader ensures that credit for successes is spread as widely as possible throughout the organisation. Conversely, a good leader takes personal responsibility for failures. This sort of reverse magnanimity helps other people feel good about themselves and draws the team closer together. To spread the fame and take the blame is a hallmark of effective leadership.

Leaders with humility recognize that they are no better or worse than other members of the team. A humble leader is not self-effacing but rather tries to elevate everyone. Leaders with humility also understand that their status does not make them a god. Mahatma Gandhi is a role model for Indian leaders, and he pursued a “follower-centric” leadership role.

Openness means being able to listen to new ideas, even if they do not conform to the usual way of thinking. Good leaders are able to suspend judgment while listening to others’ ideas, as well as accept new ways of doing things that someone else thought of. Openness builds mutual respect and trust between leaders and followers, and it also keeps the team well supplied with new ideas that can further its vision.

Creativity is the ability to think differently, to get outside of the box that constrains solutions. Creativity gives leaders the ability to see things that others have not seen and thus lead followers in new directions. The most important question that a leader can ask is, “What if … ?” Possibly the worst thing a leader can say is, “I know this is a dumb question ... ”

Fairness means dealing with others consistently and justly. A leader must check all the facts and hear everyone out before passing judgment. He or she must avoid leaping to conclusions based on incomplete evidence. When people feel they that are being treated fairly, they reward a leader with loyalty and dedication.

Assertiveness is not the same as aggressiveness. Rather, it is the ability to clearly state what one expects so that there will be no misunderstandings. A leader must be assertive to get the desired results. Along with assertiveness comes the responsibility to clearly understand what followers expect from their leader.

Many leaders have difficulty striking the right amount of assertiveness, according to a study in the February 2007 issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, published by the APA (American Psychological Association). It seems that being underassertive or overassertive may be the most common weakness among aspiring leaders.

A sense of humor is vital to relieve tension and boredom, as well as to defuse hostility. Effective leaders know how to use humor to energize followers. Humor is a form of power that provides some control over the work environment. And simply put, humor fosters good camaraderie.

Intrinsic traits such as intelligence, good looks, height and so on are not necessary to become a leader. Anyone can cultivate these leadership qualities.
