Bank officers urged to ‘fight for positive change’
Dimapur, Feb. 23 (EMN): Former general secretary of the All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC), Dr. DT Franco, has urged banking institutions to reach out to the community and to collaborate with customers in ‘fighting for a common cause as well as to come up with a developmental plan’ for Nagaland in order to bring about ‘positive change.’
Franco stated this during the regional conference of the State Bank of India Officers’ Association (SBIOA), which was conducted for the first time in Dimapur, at the Don Bosco Institute for Development and Leadership (DBIDL) on February 22, an update from the regional secretary TL Lango Neikha stated on Sunday.
Franco, who started his career in SBI as a clerk and was posted in Tuensang in 1978, expressed happiness to observe more Nagas employed by the SBI.
Motivational speaker and trainer of RZIM Life Focus Society, Dr. Kethoser Kevichusa, who also spoke at the conference, dwelt on how to live a purposeful life and to be passionate about work.
Taking note of the fact that most employees in the banking sector are under stress, Dr. Kevichusa stated that if there is no passion, “Then all oxygen is sucked out of one’s life.”
Kevichusa also explained about six passion killers that needed to be addressed in order to lead a purposeful life. The six passion killers according to him are (i) un-balanced time (ii) un-used talent (iii) un-confessed transgression (iv) un-resolved tension (v) unsupportive team and (vi) un-clear purpose.
He called upon the officers to be in communion with God and not to forget ones conscience saying it is conscience and character that would make a difference at the end of a day.
