Barangay leaders in Panay, Philippines, attend Goducate’s leadership forum

Goducate’s goal is to Go & Educate so that we can help Asians help themselves.

One of the best ways of helping communities is by training their leaders.

To do this, Goducate started a forum called Asia Forum for Leaders” (AFL). The program is for training leaders from different spheres of influence —political, community, police, educational, religious, etc.

At the soft launch of the program in September last year (see blog Oct 7), there was a one-day forum for 14 community (barangay) leaders, followed by a 3-day forum for 90 church leaders at the Goducate Training Center in Iloilo, Philippines.

Earlier this month, on March 2, we had another forum at the Goducate Training Center for barangay leaders, attended this time by over 200 barangay officials from the Province of Panay, Philippines. The theme was “Leadership in the 21st Century.”

The topics covered included changes in the 21st Century, responses expected by constituents, changes in leadership styles, etc. I conducted the training, together with Leo Decinal, our community trainer in Laguna Province.

The barangay captains participated enthusiastically, and there are now plans for follow-up workshop in the next few months.
