The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continuously enhances the knowledge and skills of Local Government Units (LGU) extension personnel in becoming effective leaders, managers, and in developing a team that is beneficial to their respective units. In this line, a series of “Inspiring, Influencing and Achieving Results: Leadership and Management Skills Training for Extension Managers” is being conducted by the institute’s Career Development and Management Division.

The first two batches were simultaneously held on February 20-24, 2017 in Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro and Panabo City, Davao del Norte. A total of 61 municipal agriculturists from different offices in regions MIMAROPA and XI participated the said activity.

With the facilitation from technical experts Steve A. Sandoval and Danilo Carreon of the Lead Core Training and Consultancy, the participants were able to gain knowledge on building a team mission and vision, on influence and leadership, and on managerial skills.

Moreover, they also learned the concepts through the Concept-Interaction-Application method of learning where they connected their experiences, both in the present and in the past, to the exercises given to them.
