30 minutes to the deadline of submitting final pieces of group works, we’ve just done and which means we’ve done with all group work! I have to say I really love my group members and we did a great job, from my own opinion. It seems we are the most relaxed group and always having fun, laughing, taking a lot of ‘coffee break’ during the day, but also working to 4am in the middle night. We chatted on Facebook as a group meeting at 3:30am in the morning! This is awesome and I feel we are like ally which fight for the same goal, with a funny way. We’ve learned a lot while laughing and debating, this is how we learned, much more than taking a class by a lecturer!
This is also impressed me as I was always soooooo serious and direct while working, I could be a totally different person while working, I thought I can call it as ‘professional face’, but I’m totally wrong. People is human-being, and to be a ‘professional face’ as before, most of my colleague are scared of me, that they can only make fun after work, and said I was a totally different person when out-of-work time. And my employees are having distance with me while I took a leadership role when helped my family’s business. That is exactly a good example of ‘how to use emotional intelligence to improve employee’s performance.’ I learned this from my group members, we are having fun while study and we’ve learnt a lot from each other, emotionally, and won’t forget it in lifetime. Probably, sometimes, professional does not mean serious and strict, it can be fun and relax, this is another way to let others respect your work.
