Leadership Training Camp 2015
One of the key highlights of our Student Leadership Development Programme is the Student Leadership Training Camp (LTC) which was held from 31 July to 2 August 2015 for the student leaders of all CCAs. Held annually, the LTC seeks to provide a dynamic platform for student leaders to develop and hone their leadership skills as well as to interact and exchange ideas with their peers. The passion and enthusiasm exhibited by the students were reflective of a single heartbeat as they aim to excel in being role models and exemplary in their every day conduct and becoming leaders of the future.
Here are some reflections from our participants at camp:
Lim Zhining 15S20
“Through this camp, I have learnt the importance of effective communication, especially so during the UNO maze. Many instructions were given by different people at the same time and there was a point in time when no one was listening. Hence, I have learnt that communication needs to be a 2-way process in order to be effective. Also, I have learnt to be courageous; as a leader, I must be able to deliver instructions and messages confidently and be daring enough to suggest ideas.”
“I feel that the camp helped enhance my leadership skills, for example to challenge the process or encourage the heart. It made me realize that these commitment statements, if applied effectively in our daily lives, could make a positive impact in TPJC. Through the personality test, I was able to find out my areas of strength and weaknesses as a leader, so that I can better myself. Through this camp, I realised that many problems that we face and dwell on are actually petty and irrelevant. I realised that I could use this energy and transfer it to creating a positive impact in someone who is willing to listen and accommodate. I came to a conclusion during the camp: The best leaders out there are those who make a family out of their team…”
