Paul addressed we are in safe environment again. In this safe circumstance, we are going to simulate leadership in the coming weeks. Based on leadership, team leaders will be trusted by the other members even though he is not given the position power. As result of leadership, team leader has chance to motivate colleagues’ potential. Therefore, efficiency can be expected on their works. However, it is a critical task to learn how to share the vision with colleagues. Furthermore, managers have to establish the trust which the target is achievable.
We took a trial for selecting leader and deputy for a life boat. After demonstrating the result, we got some discussion in the class. Although I was a little bit surprised at the different results under the same condition, I indeed enjoyed listening to different opinions from the colleagues. If we are aiming at the leader position, we cannot avoid similar discussion happening. That's reminding me 'understand before being understood'. Listening is the first lesson of leadership. Personally, the introduction was interesting to me. Hopefully, these characters will be further investigated in the near future.
