Wonderful contribution @AMANI T. NGOMA and @Ussi Abuu Mnamengi - thank you for sharing!
@AMANI T. NGOMA : your words that there is a lesson behind every mistake we make resonated with me. What were you main take-aways from the Conservation Leadership Course by WildTeam that you recently completed?
@Ussi Abuu Mnamengi : What is your secret power as WildHub Conservation Catalyst? You are our on a roll - so many amazing new interviews you did :)
Thank you for your comment. In fact, I went through the Conservation Leadership and many topics were discussed, summed up as the qualities that a leader should have (especially in Conservation), how to apply these qualities in Conservation environment. These qualities will allow leaders from any background to adapt in Conservation and not harm as they implement conservation projects. Some of them are: openness, being critical, curiosity, feeling vulnerable, empathy...
I loved the exercises we did on how a leader should take action to acquire these capabilities, and improve personal efficiency and barriers they may encounter. During the course, I evaluated my leadership skills and since then, I am improving them.
A warm welcome to the community, Amani! I really like and appreciate your words "Because I joined the community, I feel home." I may use your quote sometime when I'm presenting our community at events, would that be okay with you?
Thank you for welcoming me.
Please feel free to use those words at events.
