"Leaders who develop agendas are more likely to focus a lot better to become successful. Leaders who are willing to work hand by hand tend to lead others better. Most importantly, a leader should be patient when it comes down to making decisions."
"Leaders who are able to interact on/offline will have the opportunity to make effective communication since online communities involves many elements: people, shared purpose, guidelines, collaborative learning, technology, and reflective practice. Using these elements will make a Leader an effective communicator."
My definition is different from last week since it focuses on the on/offline interacting. Since many people are involved in Internet interacting on/offline, it is important for leaders to be aware of many issues that they can encounter. According to Session, (2010) people who usually interact on/offline may have different approach when approaching the opposite of what they usually interact. So it is important to know that even though community meet their members on/offline to build better relationship, their meet ups will not affect their own experiences but with other community and other members as well. As for Palloff, I can agree on his belief that learning together as a community online can shape your knowledge to an extend of better opportunity and learning experiences.
