On Tuesday, our class was ‘hotel simulation’ and at the beginning, we need a leader but I don't really want to be leader because I know it will be very hard and long day, I afraid if I can handle it. But thanks to my teammate: Fatima, Francis, Hussein, Saisha, Carina and Dev, they encourage me to be a leader, and I raised my hand to do it.
During the paper reading, I found it is a little bit difficult, that make me realise I need to improve my reading skill. And when the reading time up, we back to classroom. I try to make our team member together and give them a brief, but it seems not esay to go through. I only can stand a corner and explain to them. When my Deputy leader Fatima came back, she shows her strong leadership to organise the team member, and all the time they did their job, I stand back and sometimes point out the mistake.
I found the leader have a clear strategy is one thing, and the actual implementation of the strategy into reality is another matter. Even you have a gold but organise very bad, it cannot be success. And lack of confidence is another problem of me. Because this is the first time I be the leader, I totally have no idea how to do.
After the excise, I think a lot, Perhaps at the beginning of the simulation, I need to set up the role for everyone, just like a real company have advertisement sector, financial sector, marking sector etc., they give the result to two leaders to make the decision.
Even that is not a very successful experience, but I did try my best. And in the future, I will never afraid to be a leader. So, thanks to this module and thanks to Pauls, Pauls let all people to be a leader at least once.
Maybe in the future, not every one can be a leader, but that experience will has affect to them all the life.
