Webinar sharpens leadership skills among Bridgetines

To hone their leadership skills and learn from the speaker’s experience, student-leaders and class officers from St. Bridget College Senior High School level attended a webinar organized by the Senior High Executive Envoy Panel (SHEEP) on September 11 via Zoom meeting.

 With the theme “Virtual Leadership: Challenges and Compromises,” Mr. Paul Marvin Gamboa, Bridgetine alumnus and current Literature teacher in Ateneo De Manila Junior High School led the webinar, which focused on leadership in the face of a pandemic, as well as the challenges of leading in an online environment.

“Leadership is being for others. More than your individuality, it is the community that you should take into consideration when you are a leader. It does not mean losing yourself in the process but to always make sure that you get to be a person for the people,” Adreinne Valerie Gato, SHEEP President, shared in a statement.

Mr. Gamboa provided approaches and effective strategies for handling a group in an online setting and delved deeper into leadership by reminding the leaders of the key attributes a leader should have, as this is the second year of learning in an online setting.

Student leaders also had the opportunity to ask the speaker about his past experiences and personal opinions about various leadership experiences and challenges.

For her closing remarks, Mrs. Gemma Manalo, HUMMS Strand Coordinator, commended the leaders for their bravery in leading in the middle of the pandemic and expressed her gratitude to everyone who contributed to the webinar’s success.

Bismark John Marasigan, SHEEP Vice President, and Krysta Ilustre, Grade 11 Batch Representative, hosted the webinar.
