I always think that leader is not to lead the team but he need to coach the team members to do the right thing. In Wednesday¡¯s exercise, people think coaching is providing options rather than suggestion. It makes a different idea what is leadership. I still kept the habit talk to others my ideas at first until this year, that makes me less listen to others ideas. Sometimes I try to persuade them do things according to my way. This is dangerous habit for a leader, because if I tell my opinion first, other team members will not tell their ideas in order to avoid conflicts. I suggest the way which may be the best, if they do thing only because they are afraid of me rather than they indeed accept that, this definitely causes lower efficiency. Give them some options, and let them choose which they like best. People involved in decisions will feel more responsible for this task, and they generally pay more attention and energy to fulfill this goal.

  1. Given the opportunity to others may given them confidence and strong feeling of their importance and if you put your point in the first place, when you are leader, then others may take that as decision and that the leader already have made up his mind…. I take it more physiological and this behavior may have different effects in different situations. There are times, when leader has to listen to others and there are times when he/she need to follow his own decision.
