At our first few meetings, team building was key. In an effort to overcome the initial shyness, we took the time to understand and get to know our fellow team members; in doing so, establishing a welcoming and encouraging environment for everyone to share their ideas whist too ensuring everyone felt appreciated. Getting the team to gel was essential for the team to get results. We met at regular intervals, usually weekly, to discuss and reassess our progress. However, finding the time to meet proved quite difficult, between everyone’s busy schedules and with the plenty of other assignments we all had going on simultaneously.
As long as I kept studying and increasing my knowledge of my job I would always be put in a leadership role. By encouraging me to come out of my shell, take charge and prove that I could recover from my incident it gave me a lot of hope knowing that I could make this job into a
I learned in this activity how crucial time management skills will be to my ability to complete this course successfully. The analysis from the questionnaire (Table 2) as well as keeping a record of what activities I focus on for a couple of days, opened my eyes to a few areas of improvement. From the patterns observed I could see that most of my time was taken up by work and commitments as well as procrastination. Not being able to juggle theses successful led to irritation and was unproductive. Research suggests that managing ones emotions, being self-aware and self-motivate can be factors for success for a student (Allan, 2009).
As a team member I was able to present myself and was able to put my views and ideas. This project helped me to understand myself better and I realised that I can work in any situation with anyone. I will always try to work in similar collaborative approach and try to improvise myself. It was a good learning opportunity for me. I have gained experience and skills from my teammates during the project.
OWNERSHIP Destinee is a motivated worker who takes the initiative to seek innovative and creative ways to improve the workflow for the whole team. Once when coming on shift, Destinee discovered that there were several tasks that hadn’t been completed. She didn’t take the “blame game” as to why the task were not completed. Instead, she took ownership and responsibility for the situation and completed the task before the change of shift. . INTEGRITY
During my internship program although our team had no leader, I took the responsibility to distribute the work among our team to ensure we finished on time. I am always a team player who believes in ‘Teamwork makes a Dream works’ – The benefit of accessing more ideas, working in harmony and helping each other for achieving mutual goals. I also never restrained myself to curriculum and participated in many seminars on topics related to computer science, information technology, and entrepreneurship. I underwent training in programming language and was also exposed to the practical nature of
From Mind Tools, I came up with my first intervention, the basis, a To-Do List. The list is essentially a written paper to prioritize tasks written in order of its importance and urgency. When used effectively, it can eliminate negative stress and help with focus, increasing productivity. This method was effective in attaining its proposed goal, which is to help me be more organized and serve as a constant reminder of the tasks I needed to complete.
It is always important that I am diplomatic, respectful and tactful and I have displayed this on a daily basis for most of my life. I can communicate with a positive manner and on occasions I have been in situations where a client is not able to speak clearly and so by establishing a good rapport I am able to make the client/staff member feel calm and not be embarrassed by their lack of ability to communicate well, by doing this I am able to effectively acquire the required outcome for them. This can be managed by simple things such as; having empathy, a memory of previous encounters, eye contact (if comfortable for the client), watching for hand gestures or displays towards certain items and with common sense approach the desired result is
Regarding the extent to which I became flexible through my voice, I believe that this part of my writing remained static throughout. Although my voice isn't degrading to the entirety of the essay, it stayed the same in terms of performance. For the future, my hope is to bring more curiosity to the reader in terms of the topics I discuss, and the way I go about discussing them. It is essential that I include multiple tone switches during the dialogue in my essays, so I do not lose interest from the audience. Using everything that we have learned in this class--like creating a mood and having an engaging voice--it is my goal to become more self-aware
What I mean by specific is that it is time-specific and nature-specific. In addition, I have always heard of the term SMART but I did not give it my attention because I thought it would be just like many other useless methods of time management. However, the way this lecture illustrated this term or method is very unique and has helped me in implementing this method in my daily life. For instance, a goal should be time-based, for years I used to set goals or tasks and never put a deadline or timeframe, so I keep procrastinating until I lose track of time and eventually finishing the task in as imperfect way or not finishing it at all.
Givens’ was able to see patterns in employees as well as understand how each one viewed their job. Givens also noticed that their were not job descriptions- which left employees confused on what they were and were not allowed to do. Givens however did not decided to define their roles alone- she invited her employees to make these descriptions along side her. Givens also invited them to come up with a mission statement for Westlake Lanes.
From what I have heard from them, everyone has a different experience — some positive and some negative. I think that this is largely due to the fact that the job is multi-faceted. As an RA, you have to juggle many, many different roles, both within the job and in your personal life. RAs are mentors, friends, supervisors, mandated reporters, event planners and paraprofessionals, to name a few. RAs also have other
I came into my internship at ForKids aware of some of the programs and resources they provide to the homeless community. What I really found helpful, and informative about my site, was when I attended a department meeting. I was able to meet the supervisors of the different locations of ForKids, from Suffolk to Norfolk. Attending this meeting gave me a better understanding of each individual’s role, and how the agency is run. I’ve already interned for a week, but the meeting made it more clear of the agency’s mission, and how they run their programs.
Hi Angel & Dave, "That 's not my job" is a common quote for those that do just the minimal at work. When I orient new employees, I always share with them their duties but I also inform them that they should become familiar with other employee 's job duties because it may give them an opportunity for growth. I share my personnel experience that I was an entry level employee that was promoted due to doing beyond my duties and they may be given that opportunity too if they want to grow within the organization. Angel, You may have not experience the BQS, but with your disclosure of being the first to share that your a guy that happens to be Hispanic and gay, you are a
For example in the workforce if i am communicative to customers they will most likely feel welcomed and appreciated. If i am commutative with my family they can understand me and help me if i need any help. I now know what my strengths are and I am going to keep them up. Although I also have weaknesses I now know how to strengthen them in order to progress in life.
