L&E 4th July
I just thinking, the leadership theories and approaches we are using for WaveRiders can be used for our real life.
I am using both Hoshin Kanri and Balanced Scorecard to analyse WaveRiders to make it become a successful company once again. I think, maybe we can use these theories for ourselves, isn¡¯t it? Use Hoshin Kanri as example, collect the information, SWOT analysis, set up a long term strategy, devide the long term strategy into more detail mid-term plan, breake down the mid-term plan into annual plan and make annual review. We can plan our life like this. And for Balanced Scorecard, choose some most important aspect for our life. For example: Family, career and love. Create a vision, set up the target, collect the information, measure them, and develop an implementation plan. Is it a good idea?
Another thing, while I am reading our web-material, I found some word to support my oppion in previous blog " Leaders have some thing make them different from others and make others follow them". DuBrin(1998) consider there are 8 types or sources of power leaders may have: Leadership power;Power granted by organization (position power);Power arising from characteristics of leader (personal power);Power from ownership;Power from providing resources;Power arising from taking an opportunity;Power from managing critical problems;Power from being close to power.
