February 28, 2011
Past weekend while i was out playing football in a public park, there was one thing i spotted which was very interesting. As the game goes on for an hour, competition rate was increasing and each team were quite exhausted approaching the last half hour. Each team had a so called "designated leader" which wasn' anything official other than that they were the person who come most often and know the most people around. It was clearly that one of the captain was frequently motivating his players by praising when they do something well along with cheering them up when they made a mistake. However, the other leader was more of a quite type leader but just work extra hard trying to cover for the mistake of his teammate. The result came out to be that the player in the quite leader team were trying much harder which reflect to me that leading by action might work better than leader by words... It was a very interesting situation because i really though that people might not even notice what the quite leader was doing and that the talkative leader should be more effective.
Overall am not to claim that it is just from one random very uncontrol situation, but just though it was quite interestin and wanted to share :D
