Five financial management students together with one faculty from the College of Business Administration attended the leadership training entitled XChange 2018 last April 7, 2018 at the Leong Hall Auditorium, Ateneo De Manila University. There were a lot of different organizations from different schools who attended the XChange 2018; academic and non-academic organizations from University of the Philippines, De La Salle University, University of Asia and the Pacific, etc. Sacred Heart College-JFINEX was the only organization from Southern Luzon who participated the program.

The XChange 2018 was organized by the Ateneo Consultants for Organization Development and Empowerment (CODE) and its very purpose was to provide ideas that will help the organization pursue growth. It was an organization development seminar for college organization leaders with strong desire to improve the society. This seminar provided the participants the proper skills, tools and mindsets that will be helpful for them to bridge the gap between their organization and their advocacy.

The seminar comprised of a framework with five specific segments for the pursuit of the organizational growth. The first module was the Valuing Growth wherein Usec. Philip Dy gave an inspirational talk entitled “A Question of Leadership”. He shared his experiences on how he became a leader and gave insights on how youth organizations can create innovative solutions to advance their advocacies and help the society.

The second module was the Starting Growth. It comprised of an activity that allowed the participants to detect the problems in their organizations in terms of leadership, purpose, structure, process, relationship, and motivation. The participants described the current situation of their organization in each category and then evaluated the current situation based on strengths, weaknesses, problems, causes, and effects within the organization. This helped the participants to choose which category was the most important, in what ways did the problems and weaknesses affect the organization and how did this relate to problems of other categories.

The third module was the Planning Growth. This was the part where the participants will come up with a growth roadmap. The participants brainstormed about the tools to evaluate the ways that can address the problems they identified in the second module. After the brainstorming, the participants chose the best tool to eliminate the problem.

The fourth module was the Strategizing Growth. This module was a series of breakout talks from a wide range of specialists who shared the tools, strategies and insights they have gained from pursuing growth in their respective fields. The participants were free to choose one on the ten different topics. The topics were about Government (Atty. Alex Lacson), Education (Mrs. Rowena Juan-Matti), Business & Marketing (Mrs. Matec Villanueva), Finance (Mr. Jong Layug), Mental Health (Mrs. Girlie Garcia-Lorenzo), Branding & Design (Ms. Petra Gana) Development & Sustainability (Ms. Mabi David & Ms. Carissa Pobre), Medicine (Dr. Ma. Gia Sison), Information Technology (Mr. Joseph Benjamin Ilagan), and Environment (Ms. Nella Lomotan).

The last module was the Collaborating Growth. This was the part where the participants came up with a more effective version of their growth roadmap. It was called Collaborating Growth because all the organizations were able to give and receive feedback from each other.

The XChange 2018 helped the participants to pursue growth on their organizations by concretizing the various possibilities that lie ahead of them and learning how to proactively and inclusively solve problems. The framework they provided was a big help for identifying the problems and identifying the tools to reduce those problems. After this program, all the participating organizations have their own roadmap for growth.
