In may ways, some of my greatest strengths are my greatest weaknesses. I struggle with delegation, I do too much care taking of feelings and may not delegate sufficiently or push hard enough for results. Most importantly, I dislike disappointing others and I agree to do too much. This leaves me over tasked, and I am not sufficiently organized to manage it well because I struggle to delegate.
Imagine living in a world where people are not content with who they are, and as a result are always striving for perfection, which as learned through Oryx and Crake is unachievable without consequences. This world, portrayed in Margaret Atwood’s book, displays the different factors of how society has changed through time and displays the negative effects of people’s need to be flawless. This aspiration for unattainable perfection leads to the destruction of the society through unethical behavior, segregation, and technological advancement. Although these repercussions may seem like a small price to pay for perfection they will ultimately destroy the world as they know it. Perfection is something people strive for, but it is these ambitions that inevitably create a society filled with unethical behavior.
I know that some of those weaknesses will soon arrive to give me problems and hinder me to attain my goals in life. One of my weaknesses that I can admit is that I don’t meet standards of some people, I can’t handle multi-tasking, and have a lot of problems in being a perfectionist, sometimes I solo my work and don’t ask for anybody’s help even though it requires a group work, and I can probably say that I am lazy, I can really admit that, I also believe that one of my greatest weaknesses is that I still lack the knowledge that I’ve requires me to be the best of myself, I know that there is still a part of me that is missing that I have yet to find. Though I have weaknesses, many weaknesses, I also have my strengths and those strengths I am so proud of because it has all has something to do with my weaknesses, I can say that I am sometimes a perfectionist, however my strength in being a perfectionist is I can see the better out of things. Yes I do solo work though it requires a group work, however I learned to be independent to
I was confused by the number of roles described and did not see how this complexity contributed to simplifying conflict resolution. As a helping professional, I need to be convinced that I have a key role to play and this long list of roles made me feel like I cannot contribute in a significant way. My confusion increased when Barsky (2014) described the role of penalizer and stated that some helping professions would prefer not to penalize their clients. Does this mean that my use of grades as a teacher is somehow bad professional practice? Barsky (2014) also suggested that penalties may be morally wrong in some cases and that professionals must decide “whether the ends justify the means” (p. 14).
I feel as though I need to work on trusting others more, and following-up with situations. It is very difficult for me to trust people. Although, it could be considered a good/bad thing based on the situation, I want to be able to open-up to others more, and it is something that I am working on. There are also a lot of times where I refuse to ask for help because I think I have the situation under control. When in reality I need some sort of extra help.
In some aspects that is true, my database management and spreadsheet software skills are out of practice and are a current weak point for me. However, I am determined and eager to fix these weak points. What I do excel in is having sound judgment and strong discretion
Lencioni presented in the book three virtues that make up the ideal team player; they are as follows: humility, hunger, and smarts. Ironically, these traits must be taught, and not inherent. However, it is through life and work experiences that will implore these traits in people’s lives.

Poor Interpersonal skills: it is paramount to be a great listener, and to be self-conscious of your choice of words. Inability to rebound by not taking responsibility for your mistakes by figuring out where you went wrong instead of blaming your co-workers. Independent and accomplishing everything on your own is a major reason that branch managers fail, delegating tasks is necessary and part of the job. Delegating can be challenging in the context that you must find the appropriate person for the task, and be fair with all the team members.
