From the desk of the Leader…

After the simulation of the Hotel Business, must say, experiencing so many ups and downs, right and wrong decisions, success and failure (of both the business and leadership), there's so much food for thought..

The most important thought, that is again reinforced in my mind through this simulation, is the importance of understanding the diversity within the team. This was a team of my friends, whom I had known for a while, if entering in a new team of unknown people, which would be the case for most of us after the course, would it be easier or more difficult? An instance of this comes from my previous module (an elective) in which I was in a team of absolutely unknown people, though we did not have a leader, but leaders did emerge. At first it was difficult to trust anyone in terms of their capabilities, but eventually, we realized each of our potentials and areas of interest and worked accordingly..

Another important thought that comes to my mind is Stress Handling. I still have to admit that though I have learnt alot about leadership, experienced it too, and rather I have gained a new insight about the topic, and have now been able to understand it from its two ends, i.e. the leader's and the followers'; But, one thing that I have not yet been able to control is the stress! As I learnt from the feedback from my team, and from retrospection, I realise, when I am the leader, I have this stress taking over my mind, which causes some panic, which eventually decreases my efficiency to some extent. We realised (from the team) that I did not manage information very well in the beginning. This too, as I see it was a result of the stress, and a bit chaos prevailing in my mind; in the beginning, we even thought we fell short of time, and we had to rush to conclusions in order to meet deadlines! This stress, sometimes even hinders my thought, and I find it difficult to arrive to decisions.

It really bothers me now.. Need to do something about it! suggest guys!
