3. GENERAL QUESTIONS
Why have you decided to stand for the Executive Board of AIESEC AUB/ LAU and what qualifies you for that? First of all, as an LAU student I would like to share my experience to students who are not fully aware of AIESEC to get them to get engaged in a youth organization that is placed in 111 countries around the world. Show the students that if they have the will they have the power to work on themselves and develop their own character through interacting and participating in every discussion being held by their team leader or team member. Try to change their lives by coaching and monitoring them step by step until they find what they are really searching for. I am qualified for this position because I have the will to take responsibility of students who have the potential to get engaged in every task that is given to them. Not only that, but also I have the experience until now to be able to handle critical situations and obstacles that might interfere in my goal settings. 1. What are the three most important personal developments you have made through your AIESEC experience? How has AIESEC s learning environment helped you develop in these ways? The three most important personal developments are self-confidence, patience and time management. Being a team member in OGX has helped me listen and learn from my team leader how she expresses her ideas according to a certain outline. The pre-preparation of a functional meeting was really effective because it organizes ones ideas thus the main goal is achieved. Using time management was never important to me, until now when I realized that nothing can be fulfilled unless I set a specific duration for a certain task to be done. Moreover, my team leader pushed me towards expressing my-self over and over again so that I can be able to share my experience in AIESEC in front the team members. When being in a functional meeting a person has to listen carefully from his/her mates so patience should come along as well. 2. What is an ideal EB team in your opinion? What characteristics do you have that can contribute to that? An ideal EB team is like a bubble if it doesn t go through the right path it will bump into something and pop. Collaboration and organization is the key to a successful EB team; each individual should set his/her own goals and try to combine them together so that they produce an effective and efficient plan. My contribution to the EB team would be giving them new thoughts and ideas that I have already gained in my major s background such as lowering cost, sales management and human resources. . 3.

Mention three strengths and three weaknesses in the current MC. How do you plan to maintain + develop the strengths further and avoid the weaknesses? In my opinion, the current MC team are multitasking, goal oriented and persistent. However, they have their own weaknesses such as; lack of time due to their university exams and projects, absence of training lessons to members and lack of weekly meetings which should be instead followed on a daily basis. In order to maintain well established team and to avoid weaknesses we need to create a website like a synergy so that each member and MC posts his/her own news and others can comment and additional experience. 4. 5. Do you consider yourself a result or process oriented person and what is the difference between the two for you? Can you please give an example of your type of personality within that respect?

I consider myself as a process oriented person; the difference between them is that the first one only focuses on the result of a certain task while the other one concentrates on the approach and the path that this task is taking. For example, when I did my internship in Crown plaza I wasn t exposed to a field work before so the only way to acquire experience was to put limits to my colleagues so that I would be able to focus on developing my hospitality skills rather than listening to each person complaining about his/her job. Setting rules from the beginning is very essential because it creates a border between you and the other person which doesn t interfere in your process to success. Please mention ways in how you could motivate yourself and your team members considering the different motivation peaks and drops throughout the 6 months. Motivation is a weapon that is used to boost what you really want to achieve and believe in. In order to motivate myself and my team first we need to set our goals and what we as a unit need to achieve for the upcoming 6 months. Try to make a deal with them to inspire them to work harder by pushing them into things they have never done before so that they will have more self-confidence and a reason to give more. Set examples of people who were an Aiesecers and who got high positions in their dream companies. Act like a hero and listen carefully to them. For example, focusing on a task they did and try to give them positive feedback so that they feel special and creative. Show them that failure doesn t exist in our team work since every mistake they do is a reason to succeed in another task. Face our challenges by going out there and experiencing them directly for instance, recruiting in a university and trying to approach students by sending them the right specifications about AIESEC. Feel free to talk to me and share a problem that they are facing since I am a leader to lead them on the right track rather than deviating. 7.
