May 04 2010 First day in Leadership & Excellence module
Today is the first day in Leadership & Excellence module, and there is no lecture and notes in the clasee. But during the module introduction, I pick up 2 views which is interesting:
1.There is no leader better than all team members. Therefore , it is no need for a leader to know everything his staff knows.
2.There is no poor workforce, only poor management.
In addition, I became the leader in team 3. This is my first time to lead a team out of china. I think, the first thing for a new small group leader is to know each team member well as quickly as i can. I found , although we 4 have different background , we always have same ideas on the questions.So there is seldom argument in our team. Besides, my team mates are really nice and easy-going. I like them point out my weakness directly in the Assessment period.
I found I have some questions in leading a team. I think a leader should influence team member to enthusiastic and efficient to achieve the target. So activities and communication is very important. Obviously, I was not doing well in these two aspect today. And I will do it better tomorrow.
At last, Congrats to all the teams for their excellent work today, but our team is the best ~right? Thanks Faisal , Thanks Lukasz , Thanks Julia!!!
