“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” – John C. Maxwell
In yearbook there’s journalism, photography, and creative. However, all of these different little groups are guided by specific group, which is people and project management. This people in this group are seen as the leaders of the pack (credit to Emily and Issa). These people help and assist each and every one of us whenever we need their help with anything. This group completes our puzzle (reference to the picture above XD) and makes sure nothing goes missing of out of place. It may not seem like it, but being the leader of anything, not even just yearbook, can be super stressful and very challenging. It takes a lot of time management in order to get everything that you need to get done as well as help others continuously. Although the people in this group are the leaders, it does not mean that are just watching others do work. People and project management involves constant hard work and continuous working on end. Most people want to be a leader, but not everyone can be due to the fact that it takes a certain kind of person with a certain kind of a qualities in order to handle it all. Such qualities include: dedication, confidence, determination, and concentration. Some people that take on the role of being a leader crack under pressure due to all of the overwhelming amount of stress thrown their way and not knowing how to deal with it all at once. When something like that occurs, everything comes crashing down at their feet causing the team to suffer just as much.
While taking this course, it was nice to have a second opinion from the leaders when it came to my work. At times when you create something it’s harder to notice if there’s something wrong or missing from your work, so the leader looks over the pages and makes comments to pages to let the creator know what should be changed or added to makes the page (or pages) better. People and project management takes a lot of skill and they must make sure that all of the other groups are producing their best work at their highest potential. Even though this class is not exactly a paid job, each of us treat it seriously.

Every group, no matter what it may be, will always come across people and project management. When it comes to yearbook, the class can at times get out of hand and a little crazy, but at the end of the day each of us know how to get our parts done right and meet the deadlines that we have to meet. As a team we can break down any kind of wall that tries to get in our way or stop us from getting our work done (get it , Trump, wall.. XD). Plus, who else would control all of those minions??
