HNU-CSG Undergoes First LEAP Team Building Activity
The Central Student Government (CSG) of Holy Name University held its annual team building activity and basic Leadership Training Seminar (LTS) last June 6 and 7, 2012 at the HNU Grade School AV Hall. The two-day event was attended by approximately 60 officers from the national and local government units. YouthLEAD founder, Mr. John Maraguinot or "Kuya John" as many prefer to call him, facilitated the activity dubbed as the "Dynamic Student Governance: First LEAP Team Building Activity".
With the aim of developing basic strategies for effective relationships, YouthLEAD immersed the officers in unique and innovative activities, strengthening theirbonds and unifying their goals to that of the Central Student Government. Four teams were created and each underwent ten exercises. After each exercise, the facilitator gave meaningful inputs which emphasized the teamwork in an organization especially in the CSG. The participants, through the completion of each exercise, gained a better understanding of how to build effective relationships which they were able to share with the whole group.
On the second day, the Student Affairs Director, Ms. Nanelyn D. Wate, gave a brief speech that challenged the new set of officers to always exhibit the right attitude and characteristics of a servant-leader and encouraged everyone to maintain a good relationship with the school administration. She also re-oriented the officers with HNU’s Rules and Regulations so that as leaders, they would become good role models to the rest of the Holynamians.
Senator Thea Ivory Parras was the action team leader of the activity. The First LEAP Team Building Activity received an 82% A (Excellent) rating and 18% B (Very Good) rating during the evaluation performed by the HNU-CSG Officers.
