As the saying by Lao Tzu goes,"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." This is also the standpoint and goal of the Foundation.
On 23-26 March 2010, the Foundation organized training for the about 60 volunteers, from Bangkok and the other provinces on the topic of Being a Servant Leader at the King Park Avenue Hotel. The trainer-facilitator Ms Khoo Seok Lin from Singapore emphasized on how a Servant Leader has to develop on the personal and team levels, in a wholistic manner namely, the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual arenas. The ‘Best Test’ in evaluating one’s leadership as a Servant Leader that is sustainable, as described by Robert Greenleaf, was passed on.
Each trainee also brought home their reflections and goals for personal, team and organizational development. Many little gifts that were distributed by the trainer helped remind trainees of the major principles that were transferred, so that all can take these principles back home to practice on oneself, the team and the youths that are under our care.
It was a memorable time of learning and sharing between like-minded advocates for equipping the Next Generation.
