The INSEAD MBA Class of 19D in Singapore delivered an exciting fantasy-themed bike track for the children of Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS). The charity now have an incredible space for their children to practice cycling and develop their coordination and strength. Thank you to all of the student involved for their efforts and INSEAD’s contribution to improving the lives of these children…
When asked to about what they had learnt about leadership and working as a team, the students from the Class of 19D replied:
“Just go for it! Stop thinking and…do it!”
“Today I am trying to ask for directions more and not be the one to jump into the action first and just have a little bit more time to reflect on what I am doing”
“Trying to be more impulsive, making decisions without having all of the data”
“I’m working on being more assertive”
“I’ve been trying to stand back and coach more instead of just jumping in and doing”
“Learnt how to drill for the first time!”
“Being more observant to others and seeing how I can help”
Minh Lai, the Managing Director of the MBA Programme at INSEAD, had this to say about the INSEAD MBA Splash Projects:
“The value of these projects are two-fold.
One is on the institutional level, to show that INSEAD are good community citizens and by doing this project and contributing back to the community here is a good thing.
The second aspect is for new students arriving, it is very important to use this as a way to do team-building and for the sections (groups of students) to connect together and set a foundation before launching the students into P1.”
