The Gereka Mahasiswa Kristen Indonesia (GMKI) or SCM Indonesia’s Basic Leadership Training System [BLTS] is a standard system and curriculum that is implemented in every GMKI branch. The system is designed to respond to the need of highly qualified GMKI leaders. The major principles of BLTS can be concluded into three basic concepts: spirituality, integrity and professionalism. In implementing the system, GMKI conducted the Training of Trainers [ToT] of Basic Leadership Training System every first year of the period.
This year, the ToT was held in three areas: the first on 8-10 May in Bengkulu, with participants from eight branches of Regions I, III and XIII; the second on 23-26 July in Palu, with participants from 16 branches of Regions VIII, IX, and X; the third on 31July-2 August in Jayapura, with participants from ten branches of Regions XI, XII, and XV.
The facilitators of ToT are from Bina Darma Foundation, a joint institution founded by GMKI and Satya Wacana University. GMKI also formed a core-team within its national executive committee staffs that co-facilitate the ToT and evaluate the programs and the implementation of the BLTS.
The ToT was mainly focused on leadership training designs and techniques. The participants were trained to make their own training syllabus and plan that will be applied in all GMKI branches. The next ToT will be in Malang this October, attended by branches of Regions III, IV, V, VI and XIIII.
