WOW - Words of Wisdom
Are you ready to team lead?!
The good news is that nobody expects you to be. Not being ready is the best thing to ever happen to you. I thought going into my LCP term that I was prepared for this. After two years as a VP and three years in AIESEC, I was sure that there was nothing I wouldn't be ready for. A month and a half in I am proud to say I was extremely wrong. That is the beauty of this experience, everyday I get a new challenge or learn something new about myself or the people around me. The opportunity to lead a team is something that I appreciate so much and wouldn't trade for any other opportunity right now.
In your roles you are even luckier. Everything you do next you can try for the first time and see what happens. You have me and the EB here for you to help you achieve your own dreams and get to you where you want to be next. You are in the perfect role to continue your leadership development. Being OCP of Skyline (the closest thing I had ever been to TL before VP) was one of the most powerful leadership experiences I had in AIESEC. I truly do believe that a TL role in our LC can be the most developing experience we have to offer, if you make it that. I can't make this the best experience you have had so far. You have to do it yourself. You have to make time for that to happen and put all of yourself into the role. If you do I promise you won't regret it.
Are you ready to take the leap?
