What do you think the most important take-away is from this course? PT
REPLY TO MY CLASSMATE’S RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE QUESTIONS AND EXPLAIN WHY YOU AGREE? (A MINIMUM OF 100 WORDS or MORE)
I have observed and learned quite a bit in this class. I have observed that even though we all are different, we still have a lot in common. Just by reading the posts and responses each week, I can see that we are all leaders in different ways, with or without a formal title. I've observed that some us are leaders on the job, at our place of worship and in our personal lives. I really enjoyed reading everyone's posts and responses because I learned different ways to do things that can help me further improve my leadership skills and abilities. One thing I will take away with me is that in order to be a good leader, you must first be a good follower. I already knew this before I took this course, but that same theme is continuously played out in the different discussions and videos we have had in this class. An effective manager has to be balanced and have a heart not only for the organization but also for the people. I do believe that the average person takes pride in their work and really wants to do well on their job, but they have to be treated with respect and be able to feel that their concerns are heard when voiced. We have seen in the various videos how much productivity and morale remains high when those business owners and managers treat their employees as an asset instead of just a body.
