Life is a never ending learning experience. One of the most important lessons we can ever learn from comes from yourself. We as people go through alot ina life time, it is essential that we learn who we are, and have the ability to recognize and grow from our own personal strengths and weaknesses. Knowing what we are good at and what we are weak in is the only way we can truly grow as individuals. This knowledge helps us to accomplish the goals we set for ourselves in life.
Through taking this personal experience of my strengths and weaknesses, I have determined what I need to do not only to better understandwho I am, but how to improve my life. One of my greatest strengths at work that I have recognized would have to be my abilityto be a well-organized individual. I tend to write what I have to do down on paper and prioritizewhat is more important to least important. In doing this, it helps me organize and accomplish my work and meet deadlines that are important. A personal strenghth that I have is patience.
Im a child of 5 other kids on my dad’s side, and being the oldest out of the bunch, I have to be the one to set out a good example for my younger siblings. There for I show patience to my father because my siblings and I can be a handful, but instead of hassaling him all the time on things instead I help him out when he’s out working, i am a dedicated hard working child, while my father isnt around I make sure that my little brothers get the love and support, teach right from wrong, and constantly on top of them for there school work. Also in my active learning, my personal strength is having good people skills.
I meet and get involved with new people everyday whether it be work or school related. I enjoy speaking, listening and giving input to my team members so that they are aware that they can count on me to participate as a team player in our Softball Team. Not only that but im always the one to give the inspirational speeches not just because im team captain, but because aslong as everyone had a good time, did the best of there abilitys then they shouldnt feel any less about themselves, and if they believe that they didnt try hard enough then I always tell them to never give up.
“Quiters never win, and winners never quit” Good people skills are very important in a group setting because of all the different personalities that at times can be conflicting. My personal weakness has to be relieing on other people, such as group work for example, lets say if you were a architect and your boss was to asign you and one of your co-workers and assigment to blue print out a new elementary school, now you and your parnter not only have to decide on the same ideas and agree with the samethings. But how do you know if that person is reliable?
Because now if you have done your part, but your co-worker didnt do his/hers now that just makes you look bad which isnt proffessional at all. There for im more comfortable with always taking matters into my own hands, that way I already know how I am, and ill be able to get things done the way i prefer, so if ive done something wrong with the project that my boss doesnt agree to, id be able to know and improve on that on MY OWN. In conclusion, the main focuse I need to work on is building up my interacting skills (group wise) I’ll need to communicate to the best of my ability with my peers and my environment.
Manage information in my field & when problems arise, be able to think creatively to come to appropriate conclusions. My attitude will have to be positive and responsible. My confidence and capability will have to project outwardly. Managing my priorities & time will be hard to my success. But i’ll take full responsibility for my actions, & the actions of my group & projects that I undertake. I will have to take the initiative while working with others to ensure that our purpose and motives are met. Also I will respect the opinions & perspectives of my team members as we work together.
