Leading the team for KM
During this module, I was selected to be the leader of the group, and I completely enjoyed the experience.
I wanted to talk about this learning process, because I consider it important. I found many strong personalities in the group, and we had some difficult moments when discussing the topics, everyone had different ideas and it was hard for me to lead a group with everyone having strong basis for their own points of views. I just let everyone present their concepts but we would never agree in anything, until I relized that one of the members started to collect all the ideas and present a summary of what we were proposing, finding common points of view among all the members and proposing a way to conduct the presentation. This is what we call in class "emerging leaders", and I never thought it could work out because I have been in charge of people before in other jobs, but I usually try to impose my way of thinking and working, or at least having a strong influence on them. This time I let this person conduct a big part of the presentation, and we were finally able to agree with most of the points and work as team.
All I wanted to say is that, I consider this an important "knowledge asset" for myself as I knew about the concept of letting people participate and having emerging leaders, but hadnt experience it thus far. So I can say that I linked the theorical side to the practical side.
