The workshop was a day-long session that began at 9 in the morning and went on till 4 in the evening. The leadership workshop, termed as “Followership” workshop, was filled with many activities that were not only aimed at bringing out effective leaders in the participants but also giving them insight on how to be good team players. The session included events like Think First, Thespian Walk, Leadership Traits, Building from Scratch and many more, in which the students were divided into teams and were given challenges.

Prof K Balachandran took a session on Leadership Traits; he used a blend of a Image based presentation, Individual Introspection and Group Interaction to drive home the key traits of a leader. Towards the end of the session, Prof Jibrael Jos had the students identify not just their goals and aims but also their habits, strengths, weaknesses and many more factors that could help them recognize their individuality and entrust upon them the urge to reach their goals.

It closed at 4 pm as an eventful and beneficial workshop for the students, who have stated it to be both fun and educative workshop- one of the like they would look forward to.
