Leadership

There will be another leadership symposium this coming Monday. I will be attending. Sometimes I wonder if I am fit to be a leader. I lack all the traits of a leader - I lack proactiveness as I am reactive. I have no vision, I love procrastination. I hate public speaking, I type more than I speak these days. So, how in the world am I even identified as a potential leader?

Perhaps it is I have this boh chap attitude and therefore not prone to emotional trap. Perhaps I can think things logically. Perhaps I understand the broader scope of things and yet can grasps things that are few levels deeper. Perhaps the rest of the people are worse in comparison to me and I am just a we have no choice. Perhaps I am more mature. Perhaps I show respect to the management.

Or perhaps I could identify my own strengths and weaknesses. But I procrastinate i.e. I won't work on improving myself. It's a catch 22.

Is this what leaders think about everyday? I don't know. Life's a mystery.

being a leader is not so great. Unless you have guidance. THis being my first leader type position. I find it horrible. Firstly I have no guidance what so ever. I think it depends also on the company. You're given the opportunity to be groom from scratch. Unlike me just dumped in. But all in all, being a leader is not that great and its a job that gets people hating you hehe
