Along with this exercise of electing leaders , the students union together with the patron and matron organizes a leadership seminar to help equip the new leader s with some skills to organize and orient their subordinates ‘ energy to a common end, for this is what leadership is all about.
The seminar ran from the 1st – 2nd April, 2011 at Don Bosco. The facilitators covered the following topics: Leadership style and characteristics, communication and leadership, Time management and leadership, motivation and leadership and leading the Don Bosco way.
