    For me, when it comes to promoting a tourism industry in City of Bacolod, We do some travel pictures then post it on social media, sometimes they create a website for their business, they do commercials also, sometimes the strategy of others to promote their business as well here in the City of Bacolod, they make a copy of their promo then they give it to the people 1 by 1.

    Encourage them to promote our city, for example in our business, restaurants, resorts in positive way. To support our local activities, support our local resorts.

    a.Leaders must do to participate in building a specific tourism advocacy. Flexible when it comes to promoting tourism related projects like making blogs or commercial of different festival and tourist spot of the city. They must be consistent when it comes in formulating tourism plans for the city.

    Bacolod City is well known of City of Smile where people smiles everytime when we are happy, sad, or whatever problem comes to their life that is why it called City of Smile. People manage to smile to cheer themselves and to inspire people to be happy no matter what. To promote our tourism industry, leaders should use its power to influence people to become more engage in promoting our tourism industry. These days technology are part of peoples life it can be promoted by social medias like facebook, tiktok, instagram etc., it can be vlogging and news either local and international by showing our culture. Since it is pandemic promoting tourism is through technology only. However promoting tourism is difficult because of the pandemic so, leader should secure the health of every tourist and also its people with proper and complete equipment, social distancing with a warm welcome. Tourism is quite flexible as a industry because relies itself from the culture of that City and to it’s people. Influence, power, and authority is such a great arsenal when it comes to this field, so use it wisely.

    Being compassionate will help to promote our province, compassion goes along the way to the plans if leader has a heart in doing it. Confident to their decisions will influence his people to promote City of Bacolod, it is a way to have a trust within the leader and its people. Also, willing to take a risk in every tough decision the leader will make because it is difficult to promote in this pandemic.

  10. A. Based on our discussion on leadership, what things should the leaders of the City of Bacolod do to promote our tourism industry?

    After I read the article, for me the things that should promote the leader of tourism industry in City of Bacolod is their festival. Because, City of Bacolod has 3 festival called Masskara festival, Bacolodiat festival and Panaad sa negros. Masskara festival has bunch of delicious food and handiworks stall, street dancing, oktoberfest event (street party) in lacson street and lastly electric masskara, masskara festival held every October. Bacolodiat festival is chinese new year celebration in Bacolod City and held every February at Provincial Lagoon. Bacolodiat festival also headed by the Filipino-Chinese community in Bacolod. Panaad sa Negros is the biggest festival in Bacolod, because each cities and municipalities are representing their festival and pavilion and it considered as “mother of festival” in the province of Negros Occidental. It represents the happy nature of every Negrense. Also, held every April in Panaad Park and Stadium in Brgy. Mansilingan which is home to the Panaad Festival.

    B. What traits of our leaders are needed to influence bacolodnons to promote the city?

    The traits that need of leaders to influence bacolodnons to promote the city is optimism. Optimism is defined as a tendency to expect positive outcomes. Leaders need optimism to achieve lofty goals, to stretch themselves and others to greater achievements. Also, they are able to inspire and motivate people to work toward achieving that shared vision of success.

    ANONAS, ELJAN N. BSIT 3 – C2

  11. The city of Bacolod is one of the best places to stay here in the Philippines. The place is rich in culture and history. The mayor of the city posses the quality of a leader who determine the needs of its people of job and development .

    They should create laws that will strengthen the promotion of tourism just like a law that protects the organization from illegal logging and “Kaingin system”. Also projects like “Clean and green environment requiring all Bacolaños to plant trees like students, government employees, private sectors, etc at least 5 plants each so that we can build a better tomorrow for everyone in Bacolod.

    Based on our discussion on leadership, what things should the leader of the City of Bacolod do to promote our tourism industry?

    Last time we discussed leadership. I remember a quote that “The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.” So, I believe that in order to promote the Bacolod tourism industry the leader of the Bacolod City must be an influential person. The leader can promote industry by touching every people’s interest about tourism. Giving enough pictures to every person’s mind is like giving some attractive facts that can catch attention that they will really want to explore. Let tourists experience how wonderful and amazing the city is. Also using social media platforms we can widely promote tourism by spoiling them some places that are pleasant to visit . Some delicacies that can be tasted only here in Bacolod City. Let them know how ecstatic to experience different festivals only here in Bacolod City. Not only that there’s a lot more you need to discover by yourself.

    What Traits of our leaders are needed to influence Bacolodnon to promote the city?

    There are different traits that every leader acquires. Each and everyone of them has its own uniqueness and capability to lead. I believe that the leader of Bacolodnon possesses these following traits: compassionate, influential, good communicator and serves as a good example to all Bacolodnon. Being compassionate is really important; it makes the leader unique. Influential is also a trait that can help to promote a city. Being influential to bacolodnon is a big help to promote the city. Good communication is a way to promote the city effectively. A lot of bacolodnon will listen to you and in return you as a leader need to listen to their opinion as well so that it can have a good impact on your relation with the city and its people. Lastly, being a good example to your people may affect good ideas and perspectives to promote your city easily to avoid any issues.

    City of bacolod should improve their cleanliness campaign ro improve also its tourism industry. Being clean in the streets of bacolod and in other tourist spots will get good compliment to tourist. It will also attract vlogers that will help its tourism industry becaise social media is a big factor to lift it up.

    Being responsible of the leader will influence its constituents. People who are accountable for their actions take command for their lives. They device strategies and create objectivea for developing their talents and skills.

  19. Kent Nicholas Bertolano

    To promote tourism in a already popular or rather a well known city in visayas, the capital of Negros Occidental, Bacolod city. I should always consider using my influence first over authority and power. Influence is the key factor to successfuly promote the tourism in Bacolod city, both nationally and worldwide. With the use of current technological advances that we have such as the web or the internet I can start promoting it to foreigns and locals. Websites, blog and articles such as the one that I am currently in are perfect example. Social media will be useful too, facebook and tiktok are the most popular social sites the feeds our hunger to socialize in the mist of pandemic. It’s good place to start there because once the pandemic is gone people may check this place through social media. I would also add tourism office like what we have here in Talisay near our plaza. It represent the culture of talisay in such small scale. Lastly with the use of authority, I’d like to fund the tourism to ensure succes.

    Being innovative, a innovative leader could influence his people to try doing new ways to attract tourist, new gimmicks and trends can greatly improve the tourism here in Bacolod. Persuasive is a unique skill of a leader, being able to convince or persuade tourist is a must if you want to improve the tourism of Bacolod City.

    A.
    – As a leader you need to know on whats wrong with the industry and figure out a plan to solve its problem. To promote the industry i will suggest cleanliness. Cleanliness make people remember on how clean the enviroment is which gives a high chance to attract more people. And also safety. Nowadays safety is important to all, having safety protocols in Industry will surely improve it.

    The traits of leaders are very important in order to influence their followers. Bacolodnons are tractable so that leaders of Bacolod City should have a trait of being open-minded and being flexible at all times. Leaders of Bacolod should also be responsible for their actions. The actions of the leaders can reflect on how they influence their followers. Being optimistic is the most important trait of a good leader because in order to lead you should always have a positive mind.

    A. There are a lot of things should the leaders of the City of Bacolod do to promote our tourism industry. The first thing should the leaders do is to reconstruct or transform some tourism spots especially the museums. Thenceforth, leaders should advertise the tourist spots to the social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and other social media platforms. Through social media platforms, leaders should manifest the essence of the tourist spots of Bacolod City.

  23. A. To promote the city, the mayor must lead and stand in this situation. Inorder to attract foreigners and to improved the tourism, we must beautify our city first so that many tourists will be attract. With the use also of the technology, by using social media we can easily spread and endorse our most famous attraction in the city. Like our famous inasal here in Bacolod and masskara festival. I think mayor should also focus on cleaning of our environment, including bystanders in many corners of Bacolod, especially in public plaza. Mayor should discover more attractions to catch the attention of many tourists.

  24. being an empowering leader should be a leader who has power and can influence other people, and he should share his power with others to make tourism better.

    the attitude that our leader needs to be able to influence the people of Bacolod must be a smart leader, know what is good or bad and must know how to promote the city of Bacolod

        For me Bacolod leaders should prioritize it’s people to maintain a healthy community to lower crime rates and decrease poverty in this case if people saw that Bacolod is in good shape opportunities will come in, tourism will bloom by good leadership step by step Bacolod will be a City great once more.
        The traits needed are the Positivity, Honesty, and Care for its people. Positivity for having a confidence dealing with such problems, Honesty is for the greater good of all if all officials and leaders are honest things will go smoothly, No corruption means more budget for the Bacolod and it’s people creating a healthy environment for us all in that way officials are taking care of it’s people properly.
