leadership in salvagethe black swan
In this game nick is a really aggressive and talent person. I really appreciated the contribution from my team members, Roy, Sid and Nick. I learned a lot by working with them.
I found a common drawback of leaders in this module, people always forgot to clarify their plan and goal at first. So team members do not know what to do next. Although the leader has clear idea of whole plan, team members cannot follow and support him due to lack of knowledge.
As a capable leader like Nick, he can do the whole game by himself, but team members feel a sense of loss because of less contribution to this work. We were discussing about how much work should be done by managers? It is fine for a leader to do work overtime in a day or in a week, even in a month. However, work is years by years, do you want to work overtime for years. This is not only practical but also rational. Cleaver leader like to delegate his jobs to suitable person and support him to finish it.
I commit the same mistake in SM module, and I am too aggressive in the game and make a lot conflicts. I know it is hard for aggressive person to follow other's ideas, but if you want to be an excellent leader, you have to support others' ideas and delegate your authority to team members.
