Leadership PMA – Blog 2 – Deciding leadership theories
When I started my PMA, I got overwhelmed by the huge amount of information available about leadership, then I remembered that to filter and discard theories I first needed to have a picture that will represent (for me) the universe of information from where I would start analysing. I finally got my picture but I was a bit insecure on how to proceed with my decision of the selected theories, then I remember that Paul once told me that all the resources that I need to solve my problem are inside me, so I went back to what I have learnt and I ended up using RDM info to reduce the scope of theories I would read on more detail. My reflection at this point is try to use the knowledge you already have, the things you have learned in the master until now are interconnected, so apply what you know.
I am only half way on the PMA, and I am finding it really challenging but at the same time exciting, the information available is too much, but you have your critical thinking and your knowledge, so make use of them. I am trying to do this PMA a bit different from others, I am trying to be a bit more creative and I am trying to make the process real.
I am learning to trust myself in the process and make decisions that make more sense to me, it has been a bit hard not to have much boundaries from Paul, but it is also good to have the opportunity to imagine and work in a non-prescriptive way, so…let’s keep learning.
