Leaders should lead, not just implement consensus.
1- When no one is incharge, CHAOS ensues.
2- Leadership is teamwork, coaching, creativity- the synergy of a group of people inspired by their leader.
3- Leader’s Job is to work together with the team- to draw out ideas and organize them.
1- Leaders have ‘GOAL OWNERSHIP’- ownership and enthusiasm to implement Decisions and Mission of the Movement/Society.
2- Leadership is the ability to recognize the special abilities and limitations of others, combined with the capacity to fit each one into the job where he will do his best. J. Oswald Sanders.
3- Leadership is to be committed to a corporate concept of persons, the diversity of human gifts, covenantal relationships, lavish communications, including everyone and believing that leadership is a condition of indestedness. Mat de Pree.

Kuala Sepetang Site Visit (From Mangrove to boat ride to charcoal factory)

Once the busiest port in the region, its facilities were mainly for exporting of processed tin ore. Opened in 1877 as the gateway for cargo ships, Port Weld is now called Kuala Sepetang. No longer a main port, it is now mainly used by fishing boats.

In the past, Port Weld was an important port for import export activities between Taiping and Penang. Apart from Teluk Intan. Port Weld is also used as an exit point to the Kinta District and Upper Perak District. At that time, the items traded were opium, preserved vegetables, tobacco and tin ore.

Port Weld's activities with Taiping increased when a railroad was built. Works on the railroad started in the end of 1884 and its construction was managed by the Ceylon Pioneer Corps. On February, the railroad was officially opened and plying the Taiping and Port Weld route transported passengers and goods.
