Critical Thinking Model
2. A good follower does not make a good leader. However, a good leader will be a good follower. I could imagine the situation can be very chaotic without the instructors giving firm instruction that only the leader can make decision. Members who are more vocal would try to assume the position of the leader and the leader without a stand will give in.
3. Always make plan for unforeseen circumstances but do not over think and cause delay. Don’t regret on the decision that had been made wrongly but remember.

Limit the people you like to seek opinion to 2 at most. That person shall be the one you feel that has the relevant experience on the matters. Any more opinion you seek will cloud your focus.
5. Always hold your temper no matter what kind of situation you encounter.
6. Having a good plan is no use. The ability to sell your plan is more important.

Everyone went to look for her which had drained our energy even more. We could have made use of the time to rest and recuperate if we had seen through the plot much earlier.
12. Plan your speech before you attempt to ask for a favor. Prepare an answer for three most possible questions and the rest will come naturally. It may help you when you need assistance urgently.
13. Never assume what you think of the other is correct. Always give a benefit of the doubt and clarify when you have chance.
14. Build rapport even when it is an urgent situation. When we were on the taxi, William was building rapport with the driver. My intention was to keep quiet so the taxi uncle will have more capacity to concentrate on driving and we might even reach the destination faster. The moment I received the fake money, I kept quiet because I wanted to reach the destination first and sort out the money later.
However, William took over and asked for a favor. The uncle let us go without paying a single cent. The rapport built by William might be the reason we were able to go off so easily and we were also lucky that we had met a kind
