Finally, my decision fairness empowers others to be involved in our daily tasks. I scored highest in action under core leadership skills, which include: decision making, communication, and mobilizing others. I feel this supports my frame of leadership as well. Moreover, I feel mobilizing others generates employees to feel respected and valued. When employees feel their leaders are emotionally invested in them it empowers them to do well for the leader.
In the above example, we saw the possible consequences that lack of emotional intelligence can cause. Moreover in as organizations carve out their businesses in global markets more, the degree of diversity in the organizations, it is more important than ever before that organizations and its employees become emotionally intelligent. Thus, emotional intelligence is a term being used more and more within human resources departments and is now making its way into corporate boardrooms where it enjoys one of the top agendas of top management. Emotional Intelligence Quotient can be defined as competencies that demonstrate the ability to recognize one’s behaviors, moods, and impulses, and to manage them best according to the situation. It involves emotional empathy; attention and discrimination of one's emotions; accurate recognition of one's own and others' moods; mood management or control over emotions; response to appropriate emotions and behaviours in various life situations.
When finding evidence to support my argument, I believe it is very important to be as persuasive as possible, in order to sway the reader to see the positives of your stance. Finding this passion so easily comes as a strength to me as it sets a standard for my writing. My highest disadvantages as a writer is that at times I struggle with wording of my papers, which can lead to repeated words or phrases a lot of times in my paper. Although it is a reoccurring problem, it can easily be helped with the work of editing and the use of a thesaurus. Another disadvantage of mine, which affects me both in writing and in my personal life is that I can be too much of a perfectionist at times.
This helped me acknowledge I can be empathic with people in diverse circumstances without being judgemental. I also perceived that I appreciated attempting to help people by provoking their own instincts though solicitous but incisive questioning. I had a tough time with the uncomfortable silences while waiting for a reaction from the coachee, I feel I did not give enough time to the coachee to think about things before I went into other questions. Giving for reflection in the session is portrayed as being vital in coaching by Dembkowski, Eldridge, Hunter (2006, p. 49). “A moment of silence is often helpful for the client to dive into his emotions and think about a specific topic or circumstances.” From what I have practiced this statement is correct but it is very difficult to accomplish this as a new coach.
(Deardorff, 2006) With that being said, knowledge is my substantial weakness while skills and attitude are my strengths regarding intercultural competence. Being able to effectively engage with others from different backgrounds and communities relates to skills and attitude that allows me to interact and work with people from different culture. For me, being able to listen, observe, analyze, interpret, respect and think beyond average alleviates me to engage with others from different cultures adequately. But my weakness does with the aspect of cultural self- awareness, sociolinguistic awareness and grasp of global issues and trends. For example, working on group project illustrate one ability to be able to communicate and accommodate beliefs from other
Having completed the shape test it has become apparent that I am a Squiggly Triangle – as a result the following are my strengths and weaknesses: Strengths: • I like to get to the point quickly with minimal fuss involved • I use positive language • I like to create a vision for the team • I am able to present to groups • I focus on goals and objectives Weaknesses: • I can often find it difficult to understand the feelings of others • Listening to others can sometimes prove difficult • I struggle to connect to people who are maybe not as imaginative as myself • I can sometimes divert from set agendas • Meeting deadlines can often prove difficult A box is good at following an agenda, focusing meetings on the detail and presenting in a calm
While helping others, I am also able to improve myself through experience and teamwork. By exposing myself to various individuals around my job, I am able to grasp how certain people will act in a given situation. Once I was able to understand someone, that will allow me to exert a specific amount of effort to complete a task with that person. I can tell if that person is willing to complete a project halfway or if I need to do more just to finish it. Eventually, when I make the leap to the professional world, these experiences will allow me to coexist and work along with any person that is the polar opposite from me.
The underlying issues might come to the surface so that it is much easier to resolve. I always avoid evaluating individuals; on the contrary evaluate situations and their personalities. I always try to be a good listener. Listening is an active process and needs good attention and an active emotional mode. I also identify the key reasons of conflict and make a priority list to resolve it.
