Today during the leadership hotel exercise, there was a very mixed feeling in two completely opposite role i was involve in today. I started out being a deputy leader for the team and was able to spot many strengths along with improvement gap that was possible for the current leader. However, the story changed completely when i was transfer to another group which was actively and running which made it quite difficult for me at first. One of the biggest barrier that i've face during this investigation was that the first quarter i manage, the hotel profit have increase significantly whihc was a sign of hope along with setting standard for everyone team members. However, the second quarter wasn't as beautiful when the result was dissapointing. AT this point, people have their own view of how it went wrong and was not as motivated in comparison to last quarter. This situation have create huge amount of pressure for myself. Despite knowing what i think should be done when i was observing, when i got to the situation myself, i was indecisive and didn't controll situation like i hope i could especially when things was goin wrong.
This have been a great learning experience from me. FUrthermore, feedback from observer have really enlight me on the mistake that i was making when i never notice it before. I was trying too hard to satisfy everyone and sometime biased toward people who follow my idea without knowing. THis can be very costly in the real world situation and further pratice will need to help me lead with the right attitude and mindset.
Overall i was really glad i raised my hand for this experienced and really look forward to work with more new members to keep improving!!
