More than 30 Mahintana and Dolefil Community Relations (ComRel) staff underwent the Basic Supervisory Training-Workshop on February 28 to March 2, 2019 at Dolores Farm Resort, Polomolok, South Cotabato. This development training aims to help the staff understand the roles and functions of a supervisor, as well as, enhance their skill sets such as leadership, planning, effective communication, control function, time management, and facilitating meetings.
In the span of 3 days, there were various discussions, group activities, and individual quiz-type sessions. Structured Learning Experiences (SLEs) were designed to test the physical and mental stamina of the participants. The participants were expressive of their thoughts, feelings, and work experiences that may be beneficial to other participants. One of the significant activities was the opportunity to communicate with all the attendees one-on-one, which was according to the trainees, very liberating.
“Persistence, dedication and willingness to be accessed by people who want to develop you”are just few of the advices given by the resource speaker Ms. Janet Obra. Mahintana Admin & Finance Officer Ms. Liza D. Hora encouraged the body to open themselves in learning more. She recounted the experiences and pains of working in a dynamic organization such as Mahintana, yet, she counted it all joy to seeing the results of community organizing especially raising leaders who will continue the work to do and more. During the post evaluation session, the participants shared their impressions about the said training-workshop.
