it is diffult to stay calm

What an amazing game we had in the morning! Everyone enjoyed it so much and even though we didn't have any relax during the game, all of us were asking for more time to finish it when Paul stopped us. I really had a strong feeling about controlling our emotion in leadership. For me, I think it was the most stressful and challenging exercise we had so far. Time was so limited and we had to totally concentrate on the game and do everything as quickly as possible. So you can image the pressure we got. I was just a follower so that most of the time I didn't feel stressful at all and only wanted to focus on it without disturbing. However, I became irritable sometime and seemed to have offended my group mates because I had already used all of my attention and energy in doing the game and didn't have any space for extra efforts such as keeping calm. If a leader is responsible for a high pressure task and probably he needs to completely throw himself into his job. How can he always remain such a space for keeping a clear head?

Besides, I don't think it is necessary and possible for every follower to understand each step in a task. For example, it is impossible for a fresh employee to know everything that he takes part in and it is likely that he nearly have no idea what he does. Obviously, he couldn't know what others talk during meeting. Can he always interrupt the boss and require explain? Will his boss and his colleagues explain everything he questions? Of course, no. What he should do is trying to find out answers by himself and catch up with others in future work instead of always asking for answers.

  1. Hi, Rong. I agree with you. Yes, leaders should try to find out answers by himself instead of always asking for answers. Wonderful!
