11/05/2010 To understand how leaders….

In the morning I  just woke up in a good mood with lovely nice sunshine. when I was suping my delicious coffee from one of my favorite mug  , I thought how much I neglet blog writing and still I am trying to run away from blog.  Then I decide to get rid of all of my conrens about everything and to do something with  pozitive energy. Believing pozitive energy will affect my perception which makes me more poverful than ever like shield carried by a warrior .

So when checked module web side to find a topic which will be able to talk about it, I stuck in the begining of the module aim.

''Leadership and Excellence module aim is to understand how leader develop, facilitate and manage the achievement of the mission and vision via a clear stakeholder focus strategy, supported by relevant policies, objectives, targets and plans implemented  through apropriate action and behaviours that conform to developed values reguired for long term success, thereby ensuring that the organization's management system is developed and implemented. ''

When I read all these big words,  I thought that It is  nicely writen a bounch of words and this aim does not look like real!!

I think that this is the biggest problem about this module , nothing is simply understandable and nothing is conrete.  Since module starts my group have been gone through two case studies and we did not have firey arguements or challenging things or something joeyful and suprising or something  torturing. If I have to be honest about learning part , I did not learn anything so far.

Last case study my group ( team 1)  realized that  our strategy was not the most reasonable one within all stratagies and  it does not have enough opportunities to rescue or improve company ( WaveRiders ) as financially. Therefore  couple of team members suggested to change our strategy , I suggested that we should stick in strategy 5 , because It will be much more creative one for us because of difficulties. Also  If we find ways to survive our company with this strategy , It will impress others.  Then everyone agree with me , we decided to stand behind strategy 5.

Yet the problem is we could not extend or change anything in strategy , because we have to fallow 5 doing steps in it.  I did not want to develop new product for liesure times sector.  I thought that we should produce a new product for military sector because less competiters and company has good connections in the government.  Also developing new product takes almost 2 years and It is expecting that militory sectors will pick up wtihing two years.  It might be good opportunity for our company.

During the team meeting , I asked so many times silly questions to conflict our strategy .  I do remember that I think Oliver could not bear with me and he asked me that did you read strategy 5 ?  and I answer to him with silly glance yes.

In the end we just wrote the most reasonable and possible points which we should write for it and that was it . If I have to be honest , I did not learn anything and It was not the most creative case study for me.

In conclusion I am not blamig anyone for anything , also I am not the person who makes a criticism about everything like machine.  Yet I have joined in Leadership and Excellence module to understand how I can improve and enrich my leadership skills. I have never  made doubt about my leadership skills , because It is naturaly gifted and I can not  fly in the face of nature. 

The summary of four days ;

What I did learn from two case studies -  nothing

Do I have any questions in my mind  after class, seminar and four days ? I do not have any question ( nothing )

Do I worry about it ? ???? Yes

What should I do to make this team work and module more exiting than as usual ??? I have still no idea

Am I bored ???? Yes

I would love to share one of my favorite quotes ;

'' Brother stand the pain; Escape the poison of your impulses. The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do. Learn to light the candle. Rise with the sun. Turn away from the cave of your sleeping. That way a thorn expands to a rose. A particular glows with the universal. ''
