What is the lesson I will derive from the occurrence of this problem? At this time I’m already spurting out stuff different from what I was thinking up until now. This helps me feel resourceful and trusting that this life coaching experience is taking me somewhere. 3.Identifying Potential Obstacles If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere - Frank A Clark This stage is for identifying potential threats both internal and external that I will end up facing if I move down a certain solution path. My job is to cover all of them so that nothing comes off as a shock down the way.
I would prefer to ‘think’ about it, ‘feel’ it if there’s a chance and then make an attempt to ‘do’ it. I have always learnt better when the theories are explained along with their practical associations. I learn best when application of those concepts can be experienced with getting my hands dirty. Practical application of concepts and Hands-on experience of the same (when possible) were always crucial in the process of my learning and I believe this is the way which will take me forward in life. My learning model is to explore and experiment through the following processes that I am or wish to be a part of: • Academic
Also the effectiveness of self-management will directly affect time management, self-management is a key skill that will help me throughout my life. It involves setting goals and managing your time. Developing my motivation and concentration skills will help me to overcome the lure of procrastination. Effective self-management will help me to avoid stress and provide me with more opportunities to get times to finish my
Requests result in an outcome and we need to be clear in advance of whether we desire an outcome to our question and if so, which outcomes we want. Knowing that in advance will help me phrase the request in a positive way which should solicit a positive response. Both NVC and SCARF are great frameworks for leading and managing social interactions. Being aware of them will change how I interact with others, both peers and subordinates. I believe, they can help me “manage up” as well with people I report to.
I am constantly trying to come up with new ideas and new ways of doing things that are more efficient. When making decisions as a leader, I often make fair, but also un-researched decisions, based on my intuition if an answer is needed quickly. It 's my belief that simply being more aware of my strengths and weaknesses will make me a better leader. Furthermore, by taking the SCARF and NVC tools and making minor changes in the way I act and perform, there is no doubt I’ll be able to implement positive change. In looking at my weaknesses based on my personality profile, which include being fickle in my attainment of
Leaders “need to surround themselves with a team that complements their own strengths, and compensates for the skills that they lack” (Gottlieb et al., 2012, p.43). I am currently using my leadership strengths with developing a new protocol and education for manual proning in the intensive care unit. I am strong in areas of research, sifting through information, and compiling it; however, I’m not great about speaking in public. I made sure to include a member of my team whom was comfortable with public speaking. By having a team comprised of different strengths, we will have a greater chance of sharing our vision on the importance of manual proning with the
It is important to the society that students should learn and acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that will in turn make them contribute positively to the development of the general economy of any nation. It is important for the institutions to maintain well balanced academic environment conducive for better learning, with the focus on the students’ personal needs. Students have different expectations, goals, and values that they want to fulfill, which is only possible if the students’ expectations, goals, and values are integrated with that of the institution (Goodman,
Reflecting on my actions will be central in improving and changing current practices. It is apparent that my main obstacles to my end-of-academic-year goals are not due to lack of skills and ability to achieve my goals, but rather, to find the motivation, and drive to do what needs to be done. Information is key, and having awareness of my own thought process will give me the ability to find solutions to problems. This means actively acknowledging moments when negative thoughts overpower positive ones, and attempting to address them. At the same time, I will continue to cultivate positive skills, believing firmly that there is always room to
Then, I also made my own timetable so I could be able to handle my time better. To illustrate, if I create a schedule to list all my plans and important things to do in order, I’ll be better in manage my time so then I can be flexible and comfortable to do everything I want without worry of missing something or scare about wasted time. And then, I can use the time that I have saved to study more or try to obtain other goals. In short, this is an important goal too because if I can’t achieve it, it might impact on my long-term goals later
Why? As I mentioned earlier, the best way to achieve quality learning is to work together, so we have expectations and tasks from both parties, I believe that the expectations presented in the document are very conscious and try that both students and instructors are committed to learning in an arduous and committed way. I just hope they are very understanding because I am very new in this and I have not felt so much affinity with writing, but it is in my favor that I always try hard with my tasks. • What expectations do you have for how instructors and classmates treat your
I always start out with higher order concerns in their comments (after providing some positive feedback) before moving into lower order concerns, if that is necessary. I also do use the terminology of higher order concerns (focus, development, organization are the most frequent). Mostly for the papers that are really struggling or failing, I tend to move away from lower order concerns and focus on helping them with the bigger concerns. However, if there is a serious issue with lower order concerns, I usually include that in the end with a note that reminds them that while this doesn’t have a huge impact on their grade, it is still important information for them to keep in mind while writing. The tone in both the A paper versus the R paper is the same.
