The second day of YLI Wave 4 – Forum 1 – Day 2 was started with my most favorite session: breakfast :p . I love my breakfast XD . Then it was continued with the speaker talk from Pahala Mansury (Director of Finance & Strategy, Bank Mandiri) talking about “How to lead a large-scale organization in Indonesia amongst global competition. After that, we were discussing about the PLP (Personal Leadership). I had myself in table 5 with (again) another 6 awesome young leaders. We talked about the detail plan of our PLP, what the execution will be, what the challenges will be, generally how to ensure we could do our PLP.
The session was continued with how to maintain our spirit along the 2 months during the PLP. Andy, the trainer of this session flew from Singapore to deliver this. The way he taught us is to make a round, and visualization in a big paper with one big round and one smaller round inside the big one. The outer circle was filled with things that I hate, that might lower my mood and my spirit. In the inner circle, we should draw everything we like that will always enable to boost our spirit. So I had my inner circle was filled by the graduation hate, Eiffel tower, watching movies, medals of competition, shopping, beaches, money, swimming, and family and boyfriend. In doing our thing we should keep focusing in what we will achieve, those things that we like – our goal, to keep us in a high spirit.
The circle of motivation
with Emil and Nisia
The next session was about the impact and the importance of networking. Like most MBA got the job from networking rather than the job vacancy. I should say it was right. I already felt the power of networking itself. In this YLI I was very happy to meet my friend from PIMNAS (Pekan Ilmiah Mahasiwa Nasional) 2010 in Bali, Tyas Nastiti. She’s a very lovable person, you could get easily talk and make friend with her. We first met in PIMNAS, and it was the first time we finally met in person again after almost 2 years. World is so small isn’t it? It connects people from everywhere
Finally met Tyas
And talking about boyfriend. I was surprised with who I was meet in the second day. My boyfriend!! haha being a facilitator in my table – table 5 -.- really. Ian is actually YLI from wave 3 – last year. And he was coincidentally asked by the YLI committee to be a facilitator in the second day, and, coincidentally was asked to be the facilitator in the table 5 – my table. No worries, we play professional in the professional occasions I have told you, the world is small. Actually the story was, last year Ian and I were applying together. He was selected and I didn’t. But this year I tried to apply again and… I was selected!! ) thankfully And it’s funny to see that we exchanged our card )
When Ian became my facilitator :p
Exchanging Cards XD
I enjoy the forum veeery muuuch! See you in Forum 2!
