HOW TO GET ALONG AND COOPERATE WITH PEERS

Before the start of any training, you should always bear in mind that friendly relations should exist among yourselves and your instructors so as to enjoy the training atmosphere and benefit from it. 

Cooperate in whatever purposeful undertaking but don’t lose identity in character and purpose.

• •Be frank but not abrupt or discourteous; •Correct politely but do not ridicule mistakes of others; •Do not be self-conceited or have too much belief on oneself; •Practice “pakikisama”; •Remember, “No man is an Island”.  This means you need other people to achieve your goal. •
