Among the matters  he discussed included  topics on how to be a competent legislative researcher, the different legislative terms and processes, how to do a legislative tracking and analysis  and the habits of highly effective people. The staff also participated in several workshops that enriched team building and creativeness.
    The seminar-workshop ended with pledges from each staff on how it can help or what they could contribute in order to foster a better working environment.
