“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.” –John Quincy Adams, taken from www.brainyqoute.com
Management, an ability that can be applied in all aspects is a great skill that one person should develop. Time management, Financial management, Stress management, and Team management—these are some of the things we are likely to organize in our daily life. But time, financial, and stress, these are personal or more private aspects we deal with; while team management involves not only our selves but a larger group of people.
Whether you are a student or a professional or anyone thereof, we cannot avoid dealing with people. Some of us are confident, while some are timid in dealing with a group of people. But usually, the ability to communicate and participate well in groups gets developed over time and with experience. However, let’s not confine that growth to only that.
With the prevalence of gadgets and the internet, online courses are a trend now. Yes, it’s possible to learn how to manage yourself and your relationship with other people through the internet.
Then the Digital Leaders Bootcamp (click on the hyperlink to visit the site) is for you! According to the site,
The FREE: Digital Leaders Boot Camp – a leadership workshop online (#digitalleaders) is a venue for insights and lessons learned sharing designed for the aspiring start-up entrepreneur or marketer with minimal resources and plenty of challenges including dealing with people (politics, relationships, misunderstandings).
There are five courses, four of which can be taken for free. The courses are subdivided into different sections, each with a different topic. There are also questions at the end of each topic to help you reflect, understand, and see how it applies to your life.
I personally took one course (since it was free). I took Digital Leaders Bootcamp: Leader as Influencer. Before you begin the course, there is an option if you want to know your personality archetype at http://www.howtheworldseesyou.com/you. The offer is limited, so I suggest you visit and try it now. Anyway, the personality archetype is the areas where you are most capable of and where other people see you excel in. For my result, my personality archetype is Prestige and Power. The site will explain all of these to you, and will also add advices on how to improve these skills.

The thing here is that the course will not make you an effective leader (well, not right away). In the end, it will all be up to you. All these topics in the course are meant to guide, inform, and open up your mind. The key is to try the Digital Leaders Bootcamp (it’s free anyway). I tell you, it’s worth it.
While reading, you may say, “I already know this” or “What is this talking about?” You might find it boring or too common. But on the other hand, reflect on yourself. Do you possess all the qualities listed in the course? Are you able to easily and effectively manage all situations related to team management? Are you then able to inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more like John Quincy Adams said? See, because the point here is knowing how to accept your inadequacies and opening room for improvement.
