Today,while I write down " A leader should not better than all the followers " I remenber a chinese story.
A king asks his general "how many soldiers you can control in a war?" the general says " the more the better" . Then the king asks " how about me ?" The general says " no more than 10,000 , but you can control numberless generals like me , which I cannot."
2 points: 1.There is different skills in leading different teams. 2.We are no need to better than the followers we lead, but we have to good at leading them. Some one said something like that, I employ who is better than me" I think, it should be " I employ some one who I can not do better in their job". Besides, I think find out some who is better in some areas is a very very hard job. There are genius every where, but it is real hard to recognize them. This not only requires knowledge, but also experience . So, I am considering is it a good idea to have a travel? To meet or talk to many people, many different types of people ? :)
That is not the end, it is another start....(never end..)
"life is about making chooses" " If you don't want to be a leader, no one can make you become you leader" Therefore, what you thinks make where you are.
Here is a little review of what I learn. What is leadership? It is quite hard to answer, i try to answer in another way. What is different between a group having a leader and a group without a leader? A team have a leader is expected to be more efficient , productive and objective. So what the leader is some one influence the team toward the goal and efficient (maybe everyone work 120% efforts). How does a leader do this. Comunication,behaviour, influence. And what is the relationship between a leader and excellence?Organization needs good leaders using some tools to achieve excellence. Balance scorcard, Hoshin Kanri and Re-engineering is good methods deploy leaders strategies.
