The in class excercise today had similars results as to who should be the leader (Roger and Lyn) but the reasoning was different. Some felt that a leader should know how to manage different people with different skils while some felt he should have the skills. Lila then said he should be the comination of a good coordinator with good skills. That was a very interesting point.
Paul later told us in class that a leader if a function of leader, team members and situation. That made a lot of sense. I strongly feel that the leader should change according to the situation. Say after the survival operation is over and Roger and Lyn suceed. Once they reach the island then may be the leader should change then. May be Lyn should be the leader as she is a good orgainsational leader and will be able to make strategi plans to escape from the island and Ann should take over as deputy who has medical skills an good at calming people.
Alan is the leader of our group this module. He comes up with interesting ideas. I like innovative leaders :)
