Today we were privileged to participate in a very interactive training about communication, leadership and management. The training was conducted by Richard Egesa and Sydney Walusimbi from Purpose Uganda.
During the Communication session, Sydney facilitated about the modes of communication; importance of communication; and barriers of communication. Some of the principles of communication he facilitated about included: relaying feedback; timely responses; and listening.
He encouraged the team to be assertive while communicating with one another. He also emphasized the use of “I feel” statements while communicating.
Richard facilitated about leadership and management. He shared that the difference between leadership and management is that good leaders influence behavior while managers handle systems or processes. He urged the team to embrace growth, have goals and belong.
He emphasized the need for teamwork; growth (both individually and as an organisation) and the importance of having goals. He urged the team to carry the lid; not to settle but to always aim higher. He also urged the team to be good mentors.
