Delayed LE PMA

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?!

shatter the glass ceiling

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.

what is your leadership style?

By accident, I searched a website provided a funny test on leadership

My result:

Delegative 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.

art vs leadership

i had a conversation with my housemate on leadership...hehe

he said leadership was too abstract. do i agree? terribly, i don't always feel bad when i don't know yes or no....

it is said leadership is an art not a 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.

Two key factors of Variation

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 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?
