Hotel Challenge; Strategy 1

In this exercise as a Leader I have decided to apply Paul’s strategy to observe what does going to happen. Time was given to understand Hotel situation and first I have tried to understand the system. Otherwise I knew that no one in team will understand anything at all.

When I backed to my group I have explain the situation and separated all team members in different positions and gave them duties. Thus, every team members knew their duties. After I did all briefing I have set our goals and vision for our group and then step back and observed them. I didn’t work before in any project with people in my team that’s why I didn’t know their psychology as well as their strengths and weaknesses. The observation would give me some clue to see that.

The other issue which happened naturally that team members come to me with question but also with some answers as well. I was expecting opposite way actually but it didn’t happened that way. I realised that if team members comes to you with appropriate possible solutions first you gain time which is very important, second you give them chance to use their brain to think about it, and third they will feel that their thought is valuable. This also give chance to understand their capacity in different situations and how they are using their knowledge to predict future.

As a Leader I have also motivated them and encourage them to provide far from pressure environment. Because I knew that everything will be messed up. If in every decision they made I go and judge them I could lost their potential. In that time I could only give them stress but not joy. This would affect the variations in our strategy and either way we will lose.

Finally I have learnt lots of learning points from this exercise and at the end of the day I had felt that something changes in my leadership concept. System of Profound Knowledge also helped me to analyse situation and see my vision clearly. I can see better how Leader should be now. This change opened my vision and I can see now something much more well. I had outstanding chance to observe my potential with this exercise as well. Therefore I would like to thank to Paul to give me this opportunity.
