Hotel practical class

Yesterday, I had a wonderful practical class: Hotel. In our team we have two leaders, Awal and Thomas. Both of them are pretty goood. Awal and Thomas' style of leadership is totally different, this made me so happy to enjoy them leading. Awal goods at listening and encouraging. haha... I like this. Wonderful, Awal. Thomas goods at making a decision. Haha.. he  lets me feel a strong positional power. This positional power doesn't mean he likes to control. At least, I did not feel his control. Thomas indeed good at making a quick decision at the end. I admire this. Wonderful, Thomas. I enjoyed the two different styles. Thank you, Awal. Thank you, Thomas.

Your ways of leading made me realize that the leadership indeed is a process. Leadership needs some time to influence followers thoughts. We can easy to improve performance if we realized some behaviours are not so good. But it is indeed hard to change mind. Because our mind is from heart. Do we easy to change heart? At least, for me, the answer is no. So it is hard to influence the thoughts. Indeed, this is a process. I can totally understand "leadership is a process of influencing followers' thoughts and activites"(Paul, 2011). Paul's difinition is wonderful, I just fully understand the first pharase. The latter pharase I cannot fully understand it now. I just understand the words meaning, not deeper understand the inner meaning.

Thanks Pauls' wonderful class. Thanks our leaders, Awal and Thomas.

  1. And thank you Yaqin for your feedback :) like you said, leadership is a long process of failures and success’s and hopefully we will all become leaders that can influence the followers “thoughts as well as activities”

  2. Thank you for comment, Thomas. Yes, leadership is a long process of influencing the followers ‘thoughts and activities’. It is hard, but we have to do it if necessary. You would be a good leader, my friend Thomas. Yes, come on!!!
