Monday’s Class: Leadership Reflection
I am glad we spent time talking about our legacy project in class on Monday. Dr. Bill’s insights helped me reflect on what type of leadership style I was displaying. Up until our talk on Monday, I had been a relaxed leader. I issued assignments but was waiting for results. I was being more of a friend than a leader because I did not want to be perceived as bossy. After our class discussion I realized that I need to be a more aggressive leader.
I have posted on the Legacy Google doc the assignments for my team and each member’s responsibilities. I have also sent e-mails and forwarded them to Caroline so the content section knows our plans and everyone’s responsibilities. I am hoping now that my team has clear responsibilities and deadlines, we will be able to accomplish our tasks before April 25th.
I also enjoyed the second half of class, when we had a yoga session. The breathing techniques were very calming and I have continued to do them. I also enjoyed the stretching we were taught.
After these two exercises I felt more alert. Listening to the instructions and laying on the floor with our eyes closed was the most relaxing and rejuvenating part of our lesson. During this exercise I was able to clear my mind and feel at ease. Afterward I felt energized and ready to complete my tasks.
