What comes up in your mind when you hear “Leadership Training”? Most of you might say that you have no clue whatsoever about it, but some of you would probably say that it is well known as PK (Pelatihan Kepemimpinan) which is one of the EED Students Association routine programs. This year, leadership training was held on Saturday, April 4th, 2015. It was held indoor and outdoor.
The indoor activity was a seminar about leadership itself taking place at the theater room of Kampus Bawah. The speaker was one of EED lecturers, Dr. I Gede Budasi, M.Ed, Dip. App. Ling. He lectured about what leadership is, the concepts of leadership, and the characteristics that an ideal leader should have. He explained that a leader is the one who has skills in leading other people. Meanwhile, leadership is the whole activity or action in order to influence, to call up and to empower people to work together achieving the targeted purposes. Furthermore, a leader has to master management skill. Management skill concerns planning, optimizing the staff’s performance, effective communication, giving wages, conflict solving, and evaluation of the employees’ performances. The audiences who were the representatives of each class of the second, the fourth and the sixth semester were very enthusiastic in listening to his explanation.
Shortly after the end of the indoor activity at 13.30 pm, the leadership training participants gathered in front of Wantilan Kampus Bawah to attend the outdoor activity. The main agenda of the outdoor activity was outbound. Before outbound was started, Students scouts association led the body stretching activity. There were four posts of outbound spots passed by all participants in groups. Every post has its own challenging game. The games were ‘balon goyang’, ‘moving water’, ‘moving lakmus’, and ‘robot writer”. They were not merely games. There were hidden meanings within each games regarding leadership. For example, at the second post, the participants did ‘moving water game’. A glass of water should be put on a cloth. All of the participants should keep it balance until the finish line. It was not easy. It needed a good coordination among the group members. When it fell, the participants should try it again from the beginning and should not blame others. Team work was needed in achieving the targeted goal; “having more water” than the other groups. Those games are expected to give leadership values for the English Student Association especially, and for all people in general. (Dapus)
