reflection on leadership after kbam

The most impressive thing that I have learnt after these few weeks is about the humanistic influenece in a business.  This thought might be a result of the PMA + OPP + MOC.

I remember when I did my LE module, I kept thinking which style of leadership suit me the best.  My conclusion was it should be flexible according to the situation.  Sometimes, when things are not going in the "ideal" path that allow me to go for the "ideal" management style, I thought we should be flexible to do the "wrong" things.  For example, there might be times that using authority is the best to manage a business.

However, my mind has changed a bit now.  Rooms for flexibility should still be available.  But now, I go for the side of putting human at the first place more.  I hope to be a leader that listens because I understand the feeling of people is closely related to performance.  OPP teaches us to pay attention to the socio-emotional factor.  After the PMA, I understand that even for managing health and safety, the input of employees affects a lot.
