On Friday 28th march, I attended the United Nations association leadership Training. The main agenda was teaching these young individuals leadership skills and giving them logistics to do so. We looked at a whole new view of what a leader should be. This was done through group exercises and image interpretations. I learnt quit a lot from these interactions and exercises.
In the afternoon, I was able to also talk to these young leaders and explain the importance of knowledge sharing to them. This was no easy crowd, but as I wrapped up, I started to realize that people understood were I was coming from through the questions they asked. We were not able to hold an activation session but I believe this is just one of the many interactions we are going to have in the future.
Through my interaction with the young leaders,i was able to get their view about Knowledge sharing through Wikipedia. Most of them agreed that a change in attitude would help people open up. From this experience , i have learnt that i need to diversify my training skills. I need to understand my crowd and approach them in a way they can understand me.
