Working with the TWTS students is always a learning experience for me…their curiosity, desire to improve themselves, and interest in aligning with strong character and values is encouraging and well worth the investment in time and building relationships. Developing rapport with the students and understanding what drives the younger generation is mutually beneficial. As an added bonus, my involvement with TWTS is alongside my partner, which makes it all the more enjoyable and worthwhile for both of us!
[The most memorable moment was] when students said that the program helped them to redefine their views of success, and that becoming a servant leader became a goal for them.
My favourite part of the program [is in] being able to build relationship with other mentors and the students… My inspiration to join the program came from my working experience as a HR practitioner in the past 30 years, it is important to grow future leaders for the society and it has to start from the very beginning… My favourite part of TWTS has been seeing new students integrate themselves into this program throughout the weeks. Whether they were my direct mentees or other students who participated in the program, seeing them [get] involved within the classes gets me excited about the work that TWTS does and the impact on these students to explore the unchartered lands with missions and visions of their own.
The TWTS course has persistently encouraged the cream of our society to be future leaders with integrity and servant hearts. The tangible examples of our veteran mentors from different fields have also attracted our students to the bright side of the world with passion. It is inspiring to learn together with humility, joy and hope.
As a mentor, TWTS is not just a place to serve but it’s also a place to learn. To bridge our understanding and perspectives across generations. To build future leaders through our investment of time and expertise. The impact of this program is mutual and helps both the mentors and mentees to realign our understanding of the workplace for today and into the future.
After attending the TWTS course, the candidates have been exposed to understanding their values and establishing their life goals and vision. Once in their positions, they are more adept to fulfilling their responsibilities in the work place.
