SA DULO NG WALANG HANGGAN. Sir Otep critiques the output of Ma’am Leah Guillang’s group about words/phrases that represent the culture prevailing in the Schools Division of Imus City.

All of us are leaders in our own ways.

Thus was the realization of the Schools Division of Imus City as it learned the true value of leadership—including the right attitude that comes with it—as well as the importance of nurturing relationships, increasing motivation and raising productivity during its 3-day Leadership Training, Values Formation and Team-Building Activity on August 6-8 at Subic Bay Freeport Zone, Zambales.

Mr. Joseph Noel A. Titar, the invited GUNG Ho: Building Learning Teams for Success speaker, shared major reasons of leaders’ existence to a total of 102 participants composed of SDO personnel (OSDS, CID, SGOD, Accounting, Finance, HR, Admininstration and ICT), school principals and department heads.

GUNG HO is a program designed to support a team towards building and strengthening its capacity for school-based management and creating a culture of excellence within the workplace.

Titar stressed that it’s not just about producing a great product, rather, “It’s about changing and transforming the lives of children and young people and their families,” quoting Steve Munby and Thomas Sergiovanni.

“He who knows the why can bear with almost any how,” Titar added as he also tapped on the non-teaching personnel’s creativity, high performance and commitment to service.

‘Sir Otep’ also redefined individual and team roles and identified the areas which can be empowered thru optimum performance and increased productivity.

The participants were engaged in group processes, practicum/workshops, personal reflection and assessments.

After GUNG HO, the group headed to JEST (Jungle Environment Survival Training) Camp for the second part of its team-building and recreational activities.

All expenses made shall be charged to the Division’s In-Service Training (INSET) funds.
