Ã¢â‚¬Å“Even as the Son of man did not come to have servants, but to be a servant, and to give his life for the salvation of men.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬â€Matthew 20:28, BBE
The most well-known type of leadership is the authoritarian leadership style. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s why leadership is often misunderstood.
In order to seek the meaning of a real leadership as in JesusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ teachings, IICSÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Year 12 conducted theÃ‚Â Leadership Camp to unleash the leadership potential in students and train them to be leaders with a servantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s heart and attitude.
The Camp was held in Villa Ratu, Pancawati Village, Caringin, Bogor, West Java on 23Ã¢â‚¬â€œ25 October 2013, and featured, among other things, outbound training and activities.
During the trip, students were not only taught the principles of a servant leadership, but were also trained to apply all such principles in various situations through outbound and other activities.
The students learned about many things such as:
- Jesus is a servant leader and a role model for all leaders;
- Everybody can be called to be leaders;
- Leadership skills can be honed and trained;
- Being a servant leader is not easy, but it is possible thanks to GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s grace;
- Servant leaders should be able to make sacrifices and prioritize others over themselves.
Seventy-two students and 12 faculty from IICSÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Year 12 took part in this activity with Ev. Jimmy Lukas as speaker delivering seminar sessions on topics such as:
- What Is Leadership?
- To Lead Is to Serve
- The Role Model of Servant Leadership
- Becoming A Servant-Leader
Finally, may the students can commit themselves to finding the leadership potentials in themselves so they can lead well, both themselves and others.
