Teamwork makes the dream work

“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. “It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.” Robin S. Sharma said this.

Leadership is a quality that is not only intended for members of the learner representative council (LRC). All learners of De Duine Secondary School should cultivate this quality.

The LRC attended a two-day leadership course at Moonlight Resort located on the outskirts of Swakopmund recently.

The learners were welcomed with lunch and a brief seminar. They introduced themselves and had to share a little bit about themselves with the group. They also met the instructors and were split into groups with different names.

The participants were lectured on objectives and goals, their differences, and the fact that they cannot be without each other. They learned about the importance of setting up objectives in line with goals and taking small steps in order to achieve greatness.

Learners were tasked to make their own dinner and had to work as a team to accomplish this task.

The real work started on the second day and consisted of a well-planned seminar on teamwork and communication. The fundamentals of a basic team and communication needed among team-mates were discussed.

It was emphasised that communication is the key to any successful relationship, especially for groups such as the LRC.

Numerous activities had to be completed as a team and members had to ensure that everyone in the team were treated equally.

At the end of the course the learners agreed that they had acquired leadership skills and learned about working as a team as well as the importance of communication.
