LE Reflection – learnt a lot
this blog is not about why what i learnd is important and how i will use it, but about the course just change the way i see leadership.
I was advocate of those autocratic leaders and addicted to them. I read schiteler Mein Kampf and always love those leaders who are aggresive but productive and wise. they just dont talk but tell you in their actions. I also once led a team in a business immersion program, in which there are lots freshman and sofermore students. I tried to assign jobs because I know how to do it, but they obey me silently and at night a supervisor lead them do it again through disscussing together. Me and another older one both know the new answer is shit... but I then understand that their aim is not to find the anser, they need to exoerience these things. I miss what they want.
Paul also said that, which is totally opposite from my previous thought, if you team choose a wrong way, I think you still need to be with them.... This is what I never ever thought about before I come to this class. For me, its like what we should do is ignore those idiot and do it in right and effective way. But in this class, I was told to obey, to stand with my team no matter if we are wrong.
To be honest, I can see some advantages of this point of view, but I still cannot say I really agree. I dont agree, but its really good that I have a chance to experience this. I dont know how, but I think this will definately benefit me in some time in my life.
