I found the session to be very informative and relevant to my situation. It has provided me with the tools to lead those who were once my peers. It reinforces the point that having a clear vision and being able to communicate are important aspects of leadership. Outlining the different phases that a team goes through helps me to understand the dynamics of my current team.

This leadeship journey has taken me on paths that i have not yet tread and have awaken me from my slumber. We are all leaders in our own right, but we can either be bad or good leaders. the training is teachin me that to be an effective leader, one that is trnasfromational and gerative requires deliberate thought and actions. 

The very essence of the forming and maintaining of a well oiled team was one that escaped me. Teams befre now were bodies voluntarily or unvoluntarily put together to work to achieveing a goal. But teams are more than that and to have an effective team takes planning and engaging each member is such a way to seamlessly integtarte them into the community that is being formed. If there is no leadership there is naturally chaoas, conflict and confusion ... Drucker. So my future. I now need to craft a future language that will frame my reality for  the establishment of creation and sustenance of a work family.

This session I found is vital to me as a Manager to prevent burnout and feeling overwhelmed by the many things that Team Members and Senior Managers require from me.  Although there are other ways to get things done by delegating, it is equally important that as Leaders we take the time to recouperate.  Our organization has an Employee Assistance Programme, but often times Managers do not utilize this programme.  Lately, I found myself saying that I need a mental break and sometimes people would laugh, but this session has definately confirmed the need for Managers/Leaders to not only know about resilence and good wellness techniques but to practice the same.  I take this as a lesson for me and an important one to pass on that we utilize the skills learnt so that we can be only be progressive and good leaders, but that we have good wellness techniques to aid in our resilence, good health and prosperity.
