Do you consider yourself a leader?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
My leadership style is to engage and empower others. This I believe is exactly what is required for DSR in the early stages and is characterised by the work I did with the BP discipline directors when I slowly eroded away their resistence to building processes by working with them to build workshops which showed them what processes could do and allowing them to step up and lead. That way my challenge was to stop them deploying processes until they were complete rather than the directors going through the motions and then the programme dieing after I left.
2.
I am considered by others as a leader and naturally appear to end up in this position - never a forced issue.
5.
Describe what you have done to achieve a personal goal.
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I always push myself to do different things so every year make a plan of what I want to achieve in all areas of my live and each month do something towards that. Once I have set my mind on something I will get there, eg travelling during my vacations as a student, and spending 3 years achieving a crystal structure to prove a compound I made in week 3!
2.
Dedicate 3 years of my spare time to acquire MBA degree.
