Driving Performance through Human Governance

Date: 22 March 2016, 9.00am - 2.00pm
Venue: Securities Commission

Human Governance is about being human. At its most fundamental level, each individual human being chooses how to actualise their own conscience, and be vigilant about making decisions that affirm their beliefs.    

Human Governance recognises performance is not just about compliance – we need to allow individuals to fulfil their full potential as wholesome human beings and also listen to their soul.

For individuals who are operating from and in Human Governance, performance comes naturally.
With that in mind, the Securities Industry Development Corporation (SIDC), in partnership with Securities Commission and Putra Business School, is pleased to present a Breakfast Talk: Driving Performance through Human Governance.

Who Should Attend

Those who want to know more about human governance, including those who feel today's leadership model is not enough.

    The Speaker
    PROFARFAH.jpg Prof Dr Arfah Salleh
    Chief Executive Officer / President, Putra Business School
    Arfah Salleh is the Founding President and Chief Executive Officer of Putra Business School, presently the only full-fledged post-graduate university owned by a non-profit foundation, offering academic and executive management programmes in Malaysia and accredited by AACSB.
    Arfah is known for her zest and fortitude in bringing change both within and outside the classroom. Pioneering innovation in computer-based teaching of basic accounting since the late eighties, her commercialised courseware has earned her an international patent as well as several accolades including the 2005 Woman Inventor of the Year Award from the Switzerland-based International Federation of Inventors Association.

    As an administrator and later manager-leader, she experienced first-hand giving effect to the restructuring of a public university faculty into a fully autonomous business school, responsible both for the School’s business as well as academic development.

    A strong believer in the role of business as the enabler of societal well-being, Arfah now advocates`` the bringing back of human governance principle which is in tandem with Eastern belief systems, paralleled by the new sciences of quantum physics, epigenetics and noetic sciences, among others.

    Human governance espouses the need for leaders to live the true essence of humans as trustees of resources and actualise the interconnected relationship among humans and with the universe. It involves transcending beyond the physical senses to use the mind and the sentient heart in making decisions and arriving at judgement.

    This disruptive thinking to today’s command control rule-based corporate standard was first introduced in the book entitled “Human Governance – A Paradigm Shift in Governing Corporations” and monograph on “Soulful Stewardship” which she co-authored with Aziuddin Ahmad, a corporate strategist and industry practitioner with nuclear science background.

    Today, human governance forms the guiding compass for the management of Putra Business School and underpins their programmes.
