I trained as a moderator by being a subber, exactly as I trained as a mother by being a daughter: taking mental notes on what I liked and what I didn't, telling myself "let's remember to do that/not to do that, when my turn comes".
I question myself all the time, especially (of course!) when something bad happens. How could I solve this, how can I prevent this next time?
Therefore I wanted to start a discussion not so much on what a good moderator is (I think we already had a topic like that), but of the different sorts of moderators, the pros and cons of each style.
I just happened to read a couple of articles about leadership.
Here are, according to one article, the words that define a leader's job:
And this is from an article about the two types of leadership.
Oops! As for me, I have the last two from transactional and surely the first two from transformational (not sure about the others, the team members should say that). Am I a hybrid?
And two final thoughts about how to inspire others...
