The workshop was started with a presentation from dr.Agnes Widayu MMRS, the Director of Malang Hermina Hospital, who was also an alumnus of the program.  She was indeed enthusiastic in articulating the values that a leader should hold onto, based on her own experience. She also explained the way how Hermina group foster leadership and develop managerial skills of their employees. Students were also excited in class, showed by their active participation in discussion.

After being given the picture of leadership in reality by dr.Agnes, the students’ understanding was strengthened through the presentation of “the foundation of leadership theory” and “current issues of leadership” by the experts from the Faculty of Economics. The experts were Prof.Armanu Ph.D., Mr. Misbahuddin Azzuhri, MM, and Prof. Dr. Noermijati, MTM. During these presentations, students are given the knowledge regarding a wide range of leadership approach, from trait approach to situational approach.

This event was closed with a role play. During the session, each student was asked to prepare a written report and a presentation about the leadership issues in their respective institution, as well as the problem-solving steps and recommendations.
