I hold my own view before I did the Jungle exercise. Without being offensive to other views, I am personally convinced that a leader should step back in any time he/she feels loss in his/her capacity of leading.
In my appointed role as a leader for mini-project, I started my position from being a stranger to someone who is welcomed by my adorable team mates due to several principle qualities I carry with. From building trust by respecting all their contribution to lifting them all up with opportunity to shine, I have shared the leading role to various members in particular mini tasks set. I can see the enthusiasm of my team mates in leading, and they all did the best I appreciated the most. This rewards me to be well respected due to this quality- the decentralized power to others. Is not it that worth?
Nevertheless, this concept of mine contradicts with Jungle exercise when a situation where a leader was supposed to give up is not the correct answer. From this point of view, I start to question myself that whatever is right when you can find a good reason behind that. However, a leader should make sure that the reason should not be utilized to protect his/her EGO.
