Leadership Program

I just spent two full days of my already too-short holidays attending a Future Leaders Program in Uni.

Luckily the program is very inspiring, full of fun activities and interesting concepts on the topic of Leadership, or else I will scream blue murder.

Fourteen of us took part in the program, and it was fourteen very different people with fourteen different backgrouds.

Everyone have different charactieristics and different things to offer but in the end we all learn from each other and have our experiences enriched.

For me, I had learnt a lot on changing and challenging my mindset. It was true what the facilitators had said: leadership starts from a person leading himself. Actually, everyone is a leader- you do not have to be a leader in a club to be a leader- you can be a leader by leading yourself, your younger siblings, friends etc.

There are some fun games too, like this one:

. . . .

Instruction: Without lifting your pen from the paper, draw 6 lines that will cover all 16 dots.

The facilitators are so excellent that they even got me to learn how to juggle with three balls within those two days! I couldn't believe that their self-talk model actually work so brilliantly.

Hopefully the things I learnt from the program will be able to assist me in becoming a better leader.
