ETHICAL leadership requires personal integrity and showing respect for others, a minister says.
Minister for Higher Education Research, Science and Technology Delilah Gore told University of PNG graduates last Friday to aspire to take up leadership roles in their profession.
She suggested to them to plan their future on the motto: “Ethnical leadership for empowerment”.
“Ethical leadership occurs when you display personal integrity,” she said.
“It occurs when you show respect to others, even if your ideas differ.
“Empowering and ethnical leadership motivates others to be as good as they can be. It encourages people to try hard, to innovate, and to keep on going. This is what we need to transform our country.”
UPNG Vice-Chancellor Professor Albert Mellam said the foundation of their destiny should be “creative intelligence, not destructive intelligence”.
Mellam said during a graduation ceremony last Friday graduates had been prepared to begin another journey in their lives and to contribute to humanity and national development.
He said the journey should be creative intelligence with the skills they had acquired.
“We have too many of the latter plaguing this country with schemes of destructive intelligence at work at every twist and turn in the development of PNG,” he said.
Finance Minister James Marape agreed with Mellam saying graduates should be employers rather than employees.
