Day 4 - 17th March 2012
Update prepared by the Tiger Patrol
“It gave us leadership tools and gave us problem solving ideas: How to motivate, negotiate and lead”.
Yesterday evening was the international night: The participants gave us a glimpse onto their countries’ diverse costumes, languages, amazing dances and local products.
“We saw a diverse mix of cultural tradition, and everyone came together in a variety of costumes, music and food”
Today we started the day with the personal reflection, a moment that we give ourselves every morning to go through the day’s learning’s and experiences and try to make them ours in our learning journals whilst also reflecting on the day to come.
The morning sessions focused on Leadership within WAGGGS….where we looked at the vision and mission and how we can be part of that and the actions that we can take in order to make a change.
The following session was about leadership and change in the context of environment; we looked at how different people react to change in a different way and that we as leaders need to use motivation skills and influencing skills to be able to make a change.
In the afternoon all the group went out on a cultural tour to experience the buzzing streets of Pune and get a taste of daily Indian life.
Update from the planning team
By taking part in the Laxmi Road Cultural Tour, participants will go beyond simply learning about Indian culture, and actually experience everyday life in Indian society as they will visit markets, temples, shops, and a palace.
During this tour participants were encouranged to use their leadership skills to support others and push each other to challenge themselves to their full extent.
