The next four hours were moments of deep reflection, interactive discussions, creative activities and new learning. The young leaders were invited to focus on the following themes: The importance of Self awareness, the Power of an Illumining Vision, the Strategy of SMART Planning, the Synergy in sharing the Vision as a Team, the Energy In Thinking Higher and more Creatively, the need to Share and Delegate Power Responsibly, Seeing Solutions in every Problem and Obstacle, Living by the Clock and Time Management, Taking the time daily to Renew Oneself on all dimensions of 'Body-Mind-Heart-Soul' and the final Contribution to Society - a Lasting Legacy!
