In September 2016, the YTL Foundation organised a three-day leadership retreat for our UK-based scholars at Gainsborough Bath and Spa, Bath. The training was focused on character building and to familiarise scholars with the 5 core values of YTL (Moral Responsibility, Honesty, Vitality, Togetherness and Hard Work). Scholars were expected to develop their confidence and leadership qualities throughout the duration of the retreat. Scholars experienced three days of self-discovery while identifying the essential behaviour and attitude of a great leader. Gradually, even scholars with initial trepidations on sharing opened up towards the end.
