IE's referred here are Industrial Engineering students of the University of San Carlos - Talamban Campus (USC-TC) - Industrial Engineering Council, in which recently, I had the privilege of co/facilitating for their LTS (Leadership Training Seminar) for a day. I was one of two speakers/facilitators for the day, the other one is an professor of the said University as well (I guess you'll know him in the images shown later) :P.
|Roaming around and Getting lost early Sunday morning at USC-TC :)|
|After the GTKY, the training began with My Sexy Back (LOL) - Likod-genic|
|self portrait..yes my only one for this event so LUMP OFF!|
|Doing a switch-a-roo; I now shifted to co-facilitating for the physical leadership-team games in the afternoon|
|having a huge campus has it's advantages -we proceeded to the chapel area to do our activities|
|afternoon facilitator Aldwin giving instructions to group leaders for their 'Rules of Engagement'|
|Tributes Ready! ~May the odds be ever in your favor!|
|This is a modified -football-ish~tag-'japanese' game forces teams to use creative tactics, patience and teamwork!|
|Next was a modified missiles-battleship-ish game which deals with team coordination, tactics, leadership, and trust|
|FORMATION! - a wide playing field in which silence is one's friend|
|Fire at will: Rocket away!|
|Helium hoop activity - a circular hoop with ridiculous technology that makes it fly away! And your task is to put it down together!! AHAHA (This activity is google friendly :P)|
|The simplest activity ended in failure.|
Note: I was able to manage my expectations this time around since the 1st set of IE's that I co-facilitated with a 'Helium Stick' also failed in this activity as well. Follow instructions. Don't Overthink. Use common sense. I dunno why this is happening though.
That is why most critics of social enterprise, development, outreach activities and of our own government cannot or perhaps are not in the position to uplift this country simply because they themselves have not been tested, indeed it is not easy to build a nation. I gave them a quote early in the morning and in deed it came true.
"In my observation of our own culture, most Filipinos are poor, and are having so much problems because we are defeated first in the mind, before we are able to act, fix, to work-on, to initiate in tackling a particular task, challenge, problem, obstacle or the like. We spend so much time talking sometimes, that we forget, that there are only two ways to get things done in this world: to decide, and then do it."
|Found this via facebook: Despite the 'low' ending of the activity, You will learn more in failure than in success. Fail Hard, Fail Fast, Learn and Get Back Up! Kumbati IEs!!|
