Please select one of the fictional dictated worlds below where you most prefer to to live in.
A. living on a planet, under the rule of Galactic Empire, led by the dictated emperor and his apprentice named Darth Vader.
If your planet is doing something against the empire's law and order,
the entire planet can be wiped out of the galactic map by the Death Star's super laser cannon.
B. living in the Wonderland, where the Red Queen rules her kingdom through fear and intimidation;
her solution to all problems is chopping off the head of the one doing anything opposing her thoughts,
no exception, even for the king (her late husband).
C. living in the Far far Away Land, ruled by ruthless Lord Farquaad who captures and exiles fairy tale creatures
to Shrek's swamp.
......sometimes people turn into dictators becuase they are prepared to do anything for what they believe as greater good,
the mean justifies the end
All the chioces represent leaders who're drunk with power, there is only who actually has a vision...guess who?
One of my friend is working in a global orgainization, meaning that people under one department are located in several cities (in this case, Bangkok, Budapest and Curitiba).
A while ago, each location was given a budget, equally in amount, to organize team-building activitiy.
My friend was appointed into the team-building committee, organizing a two day and one night trip to the beach near by, staying at a decent 3 stars hotel instead of having everything done in one day as it used to be.
However, the proposal was not approved by the big boss. As she was told, the reason behind the rejection was because in the same budget, the colleagues in Hungary and Brazil were not able to pull off an overnight team-building.
Thus, Bangkok employees were only allowed to have a one-day teambuilding activity.
Did the boss show a good quality of leadership by not approving Bangkok employees from having an overnight event in order not to create any inequal feelings to the employees based in another two locations?
To me, he (the boss) limited the employee's good initiatives; when his subsidiaries were able to come up with something creatives, out of the box and likely to promote the team unity (amoung Bangkok employees), I don't think using the term 'creating unequal working atmosphere' is really applicable under this circumstance.
Yes, my friend went berserk over the decision....lol
