MPTC Chief Digital and Information Officer Carlo L. Cagalingan (CLC) joined the group last November 9, 2020 amidst the pandemic. CLC proved to be inspiring and was able to connect with the participants despite being in a virtual platform like Zoom. Even in the absence of a face-to-face interaction, his leadership stories opened the minds of the listeners and quiet engaged them as reflected in their different emoji reactions. In addition, he shared the real essence of digitation in the organization.
With majority of the participants attending for the first time, they stayed focused with the learnings culled from CLC’s impressive background having worked with many big companies locally and overseas. CLC may come across as a tough, but he managed to share most of his leadership advices and style.
Becoming a Leader
Making Mistakes as a Leader
Motivating Your Subordinates
These are just snippets of what CLC shared during the learning question and answer portion. There were a lot of inspiring and uplifting words of wisdom shared. The LEAD Talks ended with a learning activity to assess the insights gathered from the event. Aside from the learnings, each participant receives a Thank You card and token of appreciation.
