As stated previously, challenging opportunities and the chance to make a difference motivate me, I tend to run towards those prospects opposed to less challenging ones. Taking on the Executive MBA program at George Mason University, at this current time is an example of that. 360 Assessment In 2012, I enrolled in Stephen R. Covey’s course, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This course was a week-long and went into a detailed discussion on what Covey considered the seven habits of highly effective people, and a 360-feedback Benchmark report was used to rate my personal and interpersonal effectiveness. I had 26 people contribute feedback (self, 2 supervisors, 10 peers, and 13 direct reports) which would be useful to me within my organization and in my personal life.

The impact of strong communication skills enables employee to be tactful and increase efficiency in workplace. Therefore, reading, writing, listening, understanding, responding, compelling presentation makes up good communication skill and employers seek to hire graduates with these abilities (Omar et al., 2012). 2. TEAM WORK SKILL Based on the findings in Asmaak, Shafie and Nayan (2010), team work skill stands at the second highest place, at 17%. Huhman (2014) mentioned that there 92% of employers found in Millennial Branding Report actually appreciate strong teamwork skills.
This came as a bit of a gut punch, as I have worked hard to implement time and task management practices to ensure that I don’t neglect commitments that I’ve made and that I can be relied on to do what I said I was going to do, by the time I said it would be done. You may be thinking as you read this sentence, this is all a bit ironic as I have not consistently demonstrated mastery of time and task management skills while I have been here at SELC. Nevertheless, these things are important to me and I will redouble my efforts to deliver on them. There are likely a few factors that led to this comment—and while its hard to tell for certain where it came from—I’ll assume that it came from the Coast
The definition of a caring person stretches far beyond the idea of being kind, and although it is important to be kind there are a few other key values behind this idea. Compassion is a key value behind the aspect of the idea of being caring. Having compassion for those around me is something I strive myself to do. As life has gone on, I have realized not enough people offer the empathy that those around them need; as an individual, I always give credit to those who have problems around me, and allow myself to step into their shoes, as I try and fix the problem. The idea of compassion flows into another key aspect of being caring, which is helping others.
He continued by saying that a manager has to treat each employee as a colleague and to be always objective beyond personal dislikes. Furthermore, the managers had similar opinions about feedback; more precisely, they affirmed that their subordinates are not able to receive objectively the negative feedback. Manager 2 added that the feedback plays an important role in creating a strong bond between a manager and his
Being from the administration, it is essential for me to be sure that information are well communicated to everybody and in a proper way. These would help in avoiding issues, errors and confusion, thus, leading to going in the right strategic direction of the organisation. Also, most of the time administration department provide working schedule or tasks itself to employees which implies that people working in that department including me need to make sure clear and effective communication are being done for them to carry out their work in a proper way and attain organisational objectives and for that I believe to know the significance of good communication “self-evaluation” helps. As mentioned earlier. I still lack communication skills depending on situation and depending on individuals.
Through this Personal Learning Paper, I have got an opportunity to retrospect as well as introspect with respect to the drastic twist that my life has taken in the past six months and the experiences that I have been exposed to. The key motivating factor to do my MBA was the need to grow in my career, to realize my potential, to receive an opportunity to prove myself. All the levels of hierarchy mentioned in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Work Motivation were the driving factors to pursue my higher studies. In my first Personal Learning Paper, I had mentioned the dissatisfaction that I had experience in my career. According to Maslow, the most basic need with respect to work motivation is the monthly pay or salary that one earns for their efforts at work.
As individuals, we must view our selves as a brand, a tool, and weapon in our life, and in our live journey. There are so many ways on knowing and planning for a successful life. Hard work and scarifies always pays off. Knowing where I come in strong and where I need assistance can help stabilize my personal life and nurture my professional interactions. Self-knowledge is a powerful tool that too many people disregard because it 's difficult or inconvenient.
Moreover to be an effective leader, we need to work along with the team mates and support them whenever they need it. One more thing that I have learnt while working in my previous organization is, to be a successful manager we must be able to effectively communicate our ideas to others. Being able to communicate doesn’t mean being over extrovert, but a good blend of introversion and extroversion must be there. Initially I was a bit reserved person, but after I came to job and realized that this characteristic of mine is effecting my performance, I decided to improve myself so that I can effectively communicate my ideas to others. Although apart from the above
