I had an experience of being a leader in my university life. In my sophomore year, I was elected as a team leader in a student organization in my university. I was responsible for holding seminars to attract young adults to join the international volunteer program hold by my organization. "Holding seminars is not an easy job. Without the cooperation of team member and other PR supporters, preparation will become complicated and time-consuming." I didn't understand the meaning of these words until I faced my first major frustration. There're few members in my team. I remembered that it's around the time of the midterm exam, and I was going to hold a seminar. To my dismay, every team member was busy in studying, and rarely came to the preparation meeting. I was upset and thought, "Well, maybe I shouldn't bother them. I could do it by myself." But I was wrong. Flows of jobs overwhelmed me. With the seminar approaching, I found out that I need to clarify what's the problem of my leadership and urged my team member to come back to help me. As a leader, I shouldn't take all the jobs as my personal responsibilities without giving a clear guidance and work division to my team members. Realizing that, I set up working schedule and dividing jobs to each member. With the effort of every member, finally, we managed to finish the preparation and hold a successful seminar. If I could hold the seminar as a team leader again, I would listen clearly to their opinions and clarify what I wanted them to help me at the first moment so that I wouldn't be that exhausted but inefficient. With a clear and efficient guidance and the cooperation with team members, I believed that we could overcome one after one challenges and reached the success through a more efficient way.
