Sunday School Team Bonding

The training conducted by Neal Patrick Gonzales of Bridge ICD Sdn Bhd on Sunday 19 August 2018 at Costantini Community Centre, St Ignatius Church, was refreshing and invigorating. What I initially thought was the usual team-building session turned out to be a team-bonding session. I was taken up by the facilitator's method of engaging with us, the participants. I personally felt the approach was good as the facilitator allowed us to learn key principles in an active way. To learn these key principles, I was to participate with my team-mates which enabled me to bond with my team.

I was intrigued with the science of how we learn, and we learn best by combining activities that uses our left-brain and right-brain. Apart from that, I learnt that we should listen to instructions carefully and do not make presumptions. Furthermore, I learnt the need to take time to plan and try and influence my team-mates by focusing on the end goal of the activity.

Lastly, I learnt to trust and, though having been blindfolded, I could encourage my team-mates with encouraging words. I felt I have gained a lot from the team-bonding session, especially in the need to organise activities that stimulates active learning.
