We had a very interesting game ‘leadership challenge’ on friday. It is about how a leader direct his/her team to arrive somewhere at the planned time with as many points as possible. I think it should be designed to test or practice the ability to lead, but when playing with this game, on the one hand, leader became just a information deliverer in fact, on the other hand, we as followers almost ignored existence of leader as well. Even so, we still collected the highest points among three teams. Does it mean that in the real world, such things might happen frequently in a sense. A leader doesn’t come into play as he should do. Perhaps, the success of project or strategy depends on the team cooperation more than being led by someone else.
I really enjoyed this module, and learned a lot in the way paul coach us, in which I was inspired to think a lot about leadership.Also, through dicussions in the seminar, there were many different but profound thought and reflection which all gave me deep understanding.As Ray said, the end of module is just a starting point to continue to learn more. I am on the way for ever.
