A good leader requires not only extensive knowledge but also social values. Socialization of these social values is given in the form of Asah Budi Ajar Nurani – Teach Manner and Sharpen Conscience (Adinurani) program, which is held for new students of Ubaya FBE postgraduate program. The Adinurani 2018 theme is “Incredible Leaders”. In this Adinurani 2018, participants are given knowledge and trained to become “Incredible Leaders”. To be “Incredible Leaders” requires not only knowledge but also wisdom and integrity. This activity was divided into two sessions, the first session took place on January 12th, 2018 and the second session held on January 27th-28th 2018.
In the first session, the participants were invited to join a sharing session with alumni, namely Dr. Teddy Reiner Sondakh, S.Psi., S.H., M.Hum. and Mr. William Wijaya, S.T., M.M. about their experience during the study period and after graduating from the Ubaya postgraduate program as well as learning how important it is to build networking. In addition to the alumni sharing event, participants were also introduced more deeply with concentrations at the FBE postgraduate, both Master of Management delivered by Dr. Putu Anom Mahadwartha, S.E., M.M. as Head of Master of Management study program, and Master of Accounting delivered by Dr. Bonnie Soeherman, S.E., M.Ak. as Head of Master of Accounting. Participants were equipped with various information about both study programs, such as Vision and Mission of the programs, concentrations, various activities that support the learning method, graduate competency, regulatory development, and not to forget various facilities that can be utilized by the students to support the learning process. Also present was Suyanto, S.E., M.Ec. Dev., Ph.D. as the Dean of FBE who delivered welcoming remarks to the new students.
In the second session, participants were given materials and also conducted various activities at Ubaya Training Center located in Trawas area. Some of the materials presented include Seminar on Intelligence Literacy and Communication and Presentation Skill by Dr. Putu Anom Mahadwartha, S.E., M.M.; Network and Teamwork Seminar by Aris Surya Putra, S.E., M.Ak.; Incredible Leaders Seminar by Drs. Wiyono Pontjoharyo, M.M., Ak.; Entrepreneurship-based Leadership Seminar by Dr. Bonnie Soeherman, S.E., M.Ak.; Meditation, Mindfulness, and Stress Management Workshop by Drs. ec. Sujoko Efferin, M.Com (Hons), M.A., Ph.D.; and the introduction of Leadership Club by BPH Ubaya FBE postgraduate Leadership Club.
The seminar about intelligence literacy was very important because in the digital age, getting information is no longer difficult. Thus, students are expected to filter the information circulating on the internet. Communication and presentation skill material was also important to face lecture sessions. Then the outbound activities conducted by the participants were closely related to the Network and Teamwork seminar presented by Aris Surya Putra, S.E., M.Ak. Participants learned the importance of mutual partnership and building a network in order to accomplish various tasks well.
As an Incredible Leader candidate, it is important to know what the Incredible Leaders mean, how to become Incredible Leaders, and not to forget what are the barrier factors to becoming Incredible Leaders. This is conveyed in the material presented by Drs. Wiyono Pontjoharyo, M.M., Ak. The emphasis of entrepreneurship as a potential leader is certainly important, as these values are expected to be the basis for determining every step that will be taken as a potential leader in order to become a leader who is not only smart but also wise and high integrity. At the mindfulness session, Drs.ec. Sujoko Efferin, M.Com (Hons), M.A., Ph.D. emphasizes the importance of mindful upon whatever is done, here and now, is not imprisoned in the past and is not obsessed with the future.
Eventually, the event concluded with prizes for the most “Incredible” participants selected by the committee through the observation method during the event and for the group that collects the highest points. Hopefully, this activity can be useful for all new postgraduate students so that in the future they can be s leader who is not only smart but also wise and high integrity.
