July 18: Seventy Student Leaders from Carmel Convent High School, Kalamboli, today participated in a three hour long Leader-shift Program titled ‘Leading By Values”. The students were taken through a few moments of fantasy meditation and a relaxation therapy by Mr. Rochwyn Fernandes. 

 He then introduced Fr. Glenford Lowe to the young Leaders. From the outset, the Leaders were invited and challenged to make a ‘Leadershift’ in their ‘Leadership Style’.” Unless you have the courage to change your words and your thought patterns, ‘Leadershift’ will be impossible to attain”, Fr. Glenn said.
 Through a number of dynamic group exercises, practical examples, one on one sharing, deep personal reflections and creative insights into new ways of being Leaders today, the young Leaders found an interactive way of learning new skills in Leadership. The points that were touched upon were: The Depth in Self Awareness, the Power of Personal and Group Vision, the Fruitfulness in SMART Planning, the Strength in TEAM building, the Energy in Innovation and Creativity, the Sharing of Responsible Delegation, The Clarity in Conflict Management and Seeking Solutions, the Value in Managing One’s Time, the Nourishment in Daily Self-Renewal and the Difference in Leaving a Sacred Legacy.  
 Three hours spent in useful discovery and knowledge of Leadership for today. You don’t have to be a LOST GENERATION, start afresh and move on with courage, passion and purpose to make a ‘Leadershift’. This was a leadership program with a difference
 The Vote of thanks was given by Rebecca. The following comments were made in the AVEC log book:

God bless you all and looking forward to being with you again.
