Short-term outcome may be important now, but building a relationship throughout a negotiation is far more important and far more valuable. I realized that the world is so small that we may actually meet our counterpart again in the future. With a bad impression on a previous negotiation, our counterpart is unlikely to make a deal with us again. This real-world negotiation enables me to reflect on what I did right and what I did wrong. I am glad to have such experience for me to apply what I learned throughout the readings and the negotiation
I believe that I have the makings of a great counselor and researcher, but my language may not demonstrate this. Many of the shortcomings that have been addressed are related, I believe, to a lack of exposure to the right terminology, as well as exposure to a new professional environment. Many of the requirements for communicating my thoughts and the language used in that communication, are different than back home, or in my previous training environments. Thus, I need to continue exposing myself to relevant models, in order to grow this skill. I have begun this process by introducing additional readings and research literature, as well as seeking out training opportunities that will boost my exposure to appropriate terminology, concepts, and
In this course I became more introspective about my current leadership roles and the tweaks I could make to communicate more effectively and be a “better” leader In this course I discovered to better understand the beliefs of others and understand how what you do can impact others. Self-awareness is a huge part of it is having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. Self-Awareness allows you to understand other people, how they perceive you, your attitude and your responses to them in the moment. Motivating others requires making others feel understood, leadership is not just a cliché about leading by example or other vague tenet, it involves more interaction and engagement. I think the most important thing that I learned was how to understand my own motivations / emotions and how to find
Guiding the clients through their goals, protects the client’s dignity and pushes them to achieve better and bigger things. Interviewing a client requires a lot of techniques. Exploring for exceptions represents the second main interviewing activity in the solutions-focused approach. Workers should focus on the who, what, when, and where of exception times instead of the who, what, when and where of problems. The consequence is a growing awareness in both workers and client’s strength relative to their goals, rather than the client’s deficiencies relative to their problems.
I had time to reflect independently and I started to develop my own opinion. This reflective diary illustrates that I have begun to develop my reflections by critically analysing my beliefs and thinking about what is best for students in my class. I became aware that my beliefs were biased due to my previous experiences. This is a practice I sustained throughout the year as I continued examining my own
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.
The plan includes description of current situation and suggests the idea that it is necessary to make some steps in order to improve it. However, the given teaching plan not only outlines the necessity of some actions, however, it also suggests certain steps which can help to do it. First of all it suggests several aspects which can help to determine the targeted audience. This list is the important aspect of the plan as it also underlines risk factors for people to know about them. Than the plan suggests certain learning theory which should be utilized during the course.
Knowing myself helps me to better coordinate responsibilities when it comes to doing group projects or even when it comes to helping someone else. I feel like this has made me a better citizen because I have learned and motivated myself to do things that past me wouldn’t even try to accomplish. I have learned how to deal with different scenarios and how to act differently to defuse or help the situation. This is why I believe being self-aware is my dominate emotional
Since the tests were composed of a multiple-choice question component in addition to a short essay, I was able to reinforce my past knowledge of concepts and course material when deciding if the essay answers were accurate. Also, I was able to strengthen my organizational skills when managing my time between my additional classes, volunteer work, and my teaching assistant responsibilities. My teaching assistant experience has made me become more critical of myself as a student. I am more conscious of the impact of arriving late to class on the classroom environment. Therefore, I now make an extra effort to arrive at class on time.
My perception of how to work with a diverse classroom has changed somewhat. As a teacher candidate, the initial thought of learning how to work with diverse students seems complex. Although, the process is involved, I was delighted to see that there are some suggestions provided to help students with learning needs that I employ as a substitute teacher. For instance, when I am teaching a lesson, the students are given instructions on how to complete a task. The instructions are repeated a few times but with variance in order for all students to gain an understanding.
