Abstract: This paper reveals the experience of a young member of a non-profitable organisation in managing a team of professionals in Brunei Darussalam. In a team, the experience of managing has not been as scary as expected; positions taken, however, must be firm and effective. Being a leader of the contingency approach type, actions and responses are based on circumstances. Marketing and managing changes need to be pursued as a new leader of a voluntary organization. Careful considerations and risks had to be contemplated to achieve progress. Decision making and trendsetting are not simple but can cause explosive reactions. A clear approach should be followed to influence positive argument in the collegiate group; the approach should be related to the strategic goals and, more importantly, is feasible in terms of financial stability. Her learning experiences in managing a voluntary organization are worthwhile as a prerequisite to managing an institution. The experience gained has taught her well how to be a manager; however, more knowledge will further improve and guide her in being an effective manager.
