Leadership Challenge; Strategy 2

In this exercise I have tried another strategy which is more involved a leader style. In this task the different situation was leaders is not allowed to take briefs paper with them to the team.

This situation was just like the real. In the real business life as a leader you get the information and explain to your team. If you don’t understand what are you going to do or you are confused there is no possibility to understand by team members as well. The time was also limited as we could decide the result.

I have used about 20 minutes to understand the information that has been given and then backed to team members to brief them but actually I was confused which means I was not too sure about what I am going to do. Therefore I could not inform them effectively and they have also confused. They always came with question that wanted me the answer. This gave me a lot of pressure and this reflected to the team members as well. I have tried to solve problems by myself with focusing team works unduly. I gave some duties to the team members but I couldn’t observe them if they are doing properly. I could not use time management because I was no time to measure it. In short, as a leader I have messed up everything.

This experience made me realised that as a leader whatever task is given to you it must be understood very well and then brief to team members. Confusion gives you and your team damage with time, money, and the important one is wrong direction. You cannot set a goal and vision in that situation. Secondly, if you involved too much to processes you are not able to observe around that what’s going on. Even if you delivered duties to each team member you are not be able to observe them and control them in appropriate direction to achieve the goal. This gives them lots of pressure to each member and they just expect you to solve problems and wait answers. Therefore we couldn’t use our time and we’ve lost but I have learnt a lot key points as been mentioned.

Especially this exercise provides me a ground to observe how easy a leader can make a mistake and go to different direction without a vision. After analyse those points and write some blogs I can deeply see the situations very clear. These key points will help me to find out my personnel leadership style in terms of my future career.
