October 17, 2008
I came to the University of Warwick for my Msc degree studying started from July in pre-sessional English course. Learning is my job on campus which makes me so exciting in learning everything in new but useful. It's so nice to join Warwick Speakers society club. There was a induction meeting helding at 7:15 pm last night. I find that it not only helps me to improve my English and my speech ability but also shares the wisdom words with me from these speeches.
It was fantastic speeching demonstration Meeting invited the speakers following the time role and presenting their topics in brief introduction, good voice, posture, and body language, most of all, linking and adding some jokes to the speech with good pronunciation. One of the speakers who he is talking about "Leadership". I was shocked about his speech because he is only half of my age, 21 years old, talking about "Leadership" with his personal performance style. How can he make his outstanding speech about "Leadership"? I was very impressed by his speech. I took a note from his speech. He made a conclusion of "Leadership" in these words below:
"The only way to keep the good will & high esteem of the people you work with is to deserve it. No one can fool all of the people all of the time. Each of us, eventually recognize for exactly what we are, not what we try to appear to be. The position doesn't make the leader, the leader makes the position.", Gaston Chee said.
The boy, Gaston, also addressed the difference between "Leadership" and "Management". It is hard to forget he talked that management which means to manage from A to B, one kind of process, but leadership could change that part. What a wonderful evening to me! I will learn something new from him. I feel quite so young with him, the undergraduate from WBS-B. Eng Engineering with Business Management. He is excellent in speech. I am so lucky having a new friend with him.
