Feeling Sun Shine in Leadership Excellence….

First of all I would like to thank to Ben who has encouraged me with his comment in my blog. Feeling empathy over the my blog with a stranger is amazing. Ben makes me feel  visible person on the earth with his wisdom and thoughts.

Second point that I would like to mention here is what I felt in Leadership and Excellence module today.  Working with a different team was a bit of fresh air after long dark ages. Since the beginning of my master course first time I have learned something. Not only did I enjoy the simplicity of the game , but also I felt my power on someone. All these feelings remained me what I have got.

I think  digging learning part of the story will be useful for everyone. Today question was  do we have to be  followers , before to become an affective leadership ?  We try to find out an answer for this question , we had a long discussion session. My answer was  to combine them together like science and art, because I do believe that everyone can be a leader and also follower at the same time it depends on point of your view. Moreover  thinking about followers or leadership  over and over is pointless like egg and chicken story which one came first. This part of the lecture was not an important  part which was a reason to think about it.

Time management and making a common agenda were profound learning points for me. I felt that If I had a good time management plane and common agenda before meeting for the team , which was leading by me , I would have felt more accomplishment of a task after all. I would be able to lead more cleverly , If I had handled with these two main issues before meeting. 

In the end I can say that I will never ever forget or underestimate what I have got. Also I will ever never be unaware of common agenda and time management.

One more thank for Paul as well. When ever I share my idea about something, he listen to me without any prejudices. I read his body language and gesture that makes me and my idea as important as others. It was such a tremendous feeling which encourage me to participate more in class.

Here is my another favorite quote for Paul .....

''  Since in order to speak, one must first listen, learn to speak by listening. ''
