Today I attended Graduate Character Building program (GCB). Module 4: developing interpersonal relationships. This program is organized by the Counselling Centre(UUM) to all students of semester 3 and 4. In my opinion, this program is good but, management and program content must be improved.
There are three different slot from 8 am to 12.30 pm. But the program only starts at 9.30 am. I just want to touch on program management. Honestly, I think the program today are less successful in developing interpersonal relationships among students. Why? A speaker plays an important role in delivering information. Good speakers can definitely influence the audience physically and mentally (how they receive and respond). This situation only occurs in the first slot.
The 2nd and 3rd slots:
Students lose concentration, feel bored because of too formal talks. "Speakers do not have the interpersonal relationship skills, how she wanted to apply it to the listener or student?" - Comments given by friends. I did not mean to dispute the weakness of any party, but the management program should be sensitive to such matters to ensure that program goals can beachieved. Probably because too many groups for this GCB program, then there was the "
speakers end all ".
