Reflection on my first delayed PMA
At the beginning I thought it would be a funny process to make a rich story, as rich as i can. So I felt relax and put more time on the project and other PMAs. I was WRONG~~~~it is so hard~~~~I alway doubt that was off far away from the correction direcion indicated by Paul, but I only knew I was not on the way but didn't know how to go back to it .
my brain is totally stuck now. the PMA is stuck now. ....why time isn't stuck?!

I noted a funny thing in this world, that is more and more women engaged in leading position for business. i thought, men lead people by power(exclusiveness) whereas women lead people by inclusiveness.
As B.M.Bass and B.M.Avolio said that "women managers, on average, tend to be more transformational and more proactive in addressing problems. As a consequence, they are likely to be seen as more effective and satisfying as leaders by both their mail and female followers. ¡.because they are characterized as being more open with colleagues and are consensus builders who encourage wider participation in decision-making. " (1994, Shatter the Glass Ceiling: Women May Make Better Managers, Human Resource Managerment, 33/4,549-60)
hehe,,it might be a good factor to secceed, caz modern perople already willing to consider the unique charasterictics of women or men when chosing a appropriate leader.

By accident, I searched a website provided a funny test on leadership
Delegative leaders allow group members to make decisions. This style is best used in situations where the leader needs to rely on qualified employees. The leader cannot be an expert in all situations, which is why it is important to delegate certain tasks out to knowledgeable and trustworthy group members.
During the struggle PMA work, I believe I have no chance to be a leader...My previous colleagues called me "superman", actually the reason was not I was super for work, it was because I imitated a behavior from Superman....I am not at all....especially after the leadership course. So I told my bf, now I had only one vision left----to be your housewife for the rest of my life.

i had a conversation with my housemate on leadership...hehe
he said leadership was too abstract. do i agree? terribly, i don't know...it always feel bad when i don't know yes or no....
it is said leadership is an art not a science...no matter how many theory/traits leadership possesses, a successful leader alway has his/her own way to be different from others. the only same thing is they all could be successful or great!
like an artist who imitates others art-style could only make his/her works sold. but people say it looks like Vango/Picasso's style. ... not all the people understand art but they all appreciate the unique artist who creats his/her own style. ....that's probablly the same characteristic between art and leadership.
The common causes and special causes arose my interest on them...
i always thought the common causes could be predicted. coz people know the what and where and when could happen if estimate the process with sound experience....like people know it could be roadblock at rush hour from monday to friday. and they cant predict if there would be a terriable jam...
actually, i m still confused.....
and the common causes could become the specical causes without performing good control on common causes...although the special causes usually transient, it could be vital to the whole process.
if these causes need improvment activities. which would be conducted as normal continuous improvement and which would be conducted as breakthrough?

Paul's one question in this year's first class impressed me very much that is ' Are you looking forward to this class?'---here is the first SHOCK! Are you the guy who knows what we are thinking?
'cause I exactly did look forward to it the day before the first class no matter how bad my English is...I prepared something including going to bed early at 10pm however, God, I just can't fall into sleeping and I can remembered I lied on the bed awake all night...worrying about the future or just because of the noises around my room?
English, always English. I need keep improving my English. As a part of team 2, I am really afraid of impacting negatively performace during team work beause of English issue, as I know Hiren and Alice is quite excellent in English mastering.
For the video, I know who is Deming and Juran, but I was not quite clear about the information from the video including the game conducted by Deming in the video. I know Maslow in Chinese, but this time it occured to me until the requirement triangle showed up by Paul..SHOCK. ..I ALSO CREAT MY TRIANGLE. I might wander between UNDERSTANDING and COMMUNICATION...so many steps i shall climb up...cry!
I write blog in chinese for years in at least 3 different blog websites, including one special for my dog(http://www.aigou.com/blog/larla)...I searched with my unique net usename in google and baidu, BTY,I think there is only one person in this world using this usename, and it reminded me 2 (4 in google) pages with at least 5 blog website that i used to use.... and now this is the first time that the blog would be assessed as the part of my work during this academic year-- SHOCK....now can I write some interesting things or non-reletive to courses here?Paul?
I always think I have the born problem in writing which proved true during these years...:)..I still remember the conversation with my father 15 years ago.'I don't how to write and writing is too hard for me';'is it? it's quite easy. when you got a topic, just create it then write them down!' --SHOCK till now as well as I know I need to wirte so many articles this year.
Paul introduced lots of information about PPE, these information is put in different website, sometime different places in main EEE website,sometime in Forum. What shall I do if I forget to check one navigation? SHOCK, IS THERE ANY SHORT CUT TO COLLECT ALL INFORMATIN TOGETHER?
So many things, do I have enough time to manager? Timemanagement,Timemanagement! And a detail standard procedure.
