today we had two exercise on leadership. i was behaving as followers both times.
problems are easily shown up in real practise.
for the first exercise, leader of out team did quite good at beging-brief objective well and mind the time.
however, more people voted for 'highest' than 'artest', we finally went for 'artest' because of leader and member with strong personality voted for that. as process went on, we keep changing our objective and didnt make a plan.
this problem let me realise that how important a plan is! before i always thought that plan is useless because i never do things follow my planning. than problem raise, eg time managing, achievement of objective and results.
another exercise we start a meeting with our leaders. Leader was good at focusing on objective and didn't lose the direction.
however, the way we talked about the problem was not nice somehow. leaders tended to be aggressive sometimes and not at good listenning.
here one thing has to be pointed out, leaders assume followers know all information ,in fact, they don't.
because of this, I was misunderstanding during the discussion and can not agree with the option which actually would work out.
Leaders listen to people seems nice and on her side , not actually listen to those negative or have opposite ideas.
this will cause serious problem. if advises can not be heard in all, leaders just can lead in the way agreed only by himself. no improvement or correction will happen.
