This is what has been glued to my mind after a leadership seminar I attended at Victoria Station, Quezon City.

Leadership Seminars

What does it take to be a leader? How can I lead my team better? What do I have to do to unite my members? These and a lot more have been my concerns as I cruise my everyday task as an HR Manager of our machining company of 25 employees.

I am a graduate of Mass Communication and have been on numerous leadership workshops required by the school, but it’s a total different story when you’re on the actual situation of leading people. People with different attitude, family orientation, or religion. How do I get to tie them into a group that has one common goal for themselves and the company- that is to grow and progress! Oh, there’s still so much to learn!

Leadership 101: A Seminar on Pursuing Team Goals byΒ Go Up Events was right on time!

Ms. Jonah Chipeco, Chief Marketing Officer of Go Up Events Manila, welcoming the attendees.

The seminar was attended byΒ aspiring managers, entrepreneurs, job seekers, students and parents. 3 hours ran so fast that wan’t at all boring! All thanks to the knowledgeable and humorous speaker, Ms. Marie San Luis ofΒ The Corporate Pinay.

Ms. Marie is trainer/leadership coach and has been mentoring managers for the past twelve years. Β In herΒ engagement with various BPOs, she has observed different team dynamics including what works and not.



Everyone attentively listening to the speaker. It was such a great and engaging talk!

Here are the main points I collected during the seminar that are really beneficial to me on my current role in my company:

Invest in yourself

Dress one notch above

Learn the leadership language

Professional Communication

Perception Management

Walk the talk

Have clear goals

Do not fear feedback

Inspire yourself to inspire others

Find your happy place with the work you do

Be an example of positivity


Rant less & don’t post on Facebook

Be ready for the day

Find small ways to get to know your team

Set selfless goals, help your team

N-e-v-e-r Β s-t-o-p Β l-e-a-r-n-i-n-g

Lucky day for more than 20 attendees, including myself!



We all enjoyed the cozy room and the free coffee!

As Ms. Marie said, “If you are a leader, you don’t get up for yourself, you get up for your people.”Β Para kanino ka bumabangon, sabi nga ng NescafΓ©. πŸ˜€

Then, I will be ending my day examining:Β What did I do good? What could I have done better?



Attendees were given Certificate of Attendance after the seminar and there were also gifts for the early bird and the company with most number of attendees.

Honored to have been invited to this seminar. Never mind the wrong name on the certificate. πŸ˜€

The need for leadership is important not just in the workplace but any organization including public associations, government, and in our homes. People with leadership traits have the vision, courage, and the ability to move a team towards breaking new ground.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams

Being a leader is such a strenuous responsibility.Β So much to do and think about! It’s a lot of pressure to know that so many people are counting on you. This leadership seminar has enlightened me on my roles, my shoulds and shouldn’ts, and why I’ll Never Stop Learning.
