I now realize that I should vocalize my needs, especially when I become overwhelmed or need to get away. Because I can appear detached at times, I should tell the employee that I am just thinking things through and perhaps explain how I came to my decision so they can understand (if possible) my reasoning and thought process. Good analysis of the
Once I figure out a strategy I apply the doing piece, trying and tweaking my approach until I have found an optimized route. Being aware of my learning style is important because not every child will learn the same. As a teacher, I need to be able to teach to everyone. When I placed my learning style scores into the grid, I
Having completed the shape test it has become apparent that I am a Squiggly Triangle – as a result the following are my strengths and weaknesses: Strengths: • I like to get to the point quickly with minimal fuss involved • I use positive language • I like to create a vision for the team • I am able to present to groups • I focus on goals and objectives Weaknesses: • I can often find it difficult to understand the feelings of others • Listening to others can sometimes prove difficult • I struggle to connect to people who are maybe not as imaginative as myself • I can sometimes divert from set agendas • Meeting deadlines can often prove difficult A box is good at following an agenda, focusing meetings on the detail and presenting in a calm
I understand the people on the floor first before I tell them anything. I need to be careful in what I say to them and I usually need to explain myself first and listen to what they are obliged to say before I can judge anyone. Being compassionate for these people is a sizable responsibility, as a result, I cannot let my politeness succumb the extra fitting ¬of myself. There are times, however, where it is fundamentally necessary to be a bit strict, so I can show that I’m someone that is able to take charge and be a guide for others. One last trait that I show from being a leader is sacrificing a considerable amount of my free time to support the floor, and also my trade.
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
These leadership styles were defined as the manner and approach of providing directions, implementing plans, and motivating people. Leaders are hands-off and allow group members to make decisions. A free rein leader does not lead, but leaves the group entirely to itself such a leaders allows maximum freedom to subordinates. Freedoms are freely determined by group goals, techniques, and working methods. This leadership style promotes team work and on good interpersonal relations.
The Army defines leadership in APD 6-22 as “the process of influencing people by providing purpose, direction, and motivation to accomplish the mission and improve the organization.” I agree with APDs definition of leadership but my own definition expounds on this definition slightly. For me, leadership is a privilege and not a right. The privilege of leading Soldiers carries with it the enormous responsibilities of inspiring, working hard and effectively, earning and maintaining Soldiers trust and holding yourself as well as your Soldiers accountable.
The first part is that I want to make sure that every team member in my group projects has a specific responsibility or role right from the start. One reason I struggle with delegating is that it is more comfortable for me to just do an assignment rather than explain and give it to someone else. I believe that making sure that everyone has an assignment will go a long way in helping me learn to communicate responsibilities. It will also help to delegate meaningful responsibilities to everyone in the group. The second part of the plan is that I want to give positive feedback to every single person I work with on teams.
A schedule may also help me outline my day and highlight things that I would want to accomplish for each day, and that will cultivate a culture of discipline. The support that I will need should mainly come from within me though I would also need the support of others around me. This involves being around people with the same vision as me, to avoid falling off the rail. The people that I need to surround me are people that will constantly push me to do better and try to be the best version of myself and these are mainly friends as well as
You can begin to see the things which you can change and the things that you have to learn to accept. Recognize your own resources: assessing your strengths and weaknesses can help you to see what you have at your disposal to help you cope. You do not have to cope alone: we all feel pressure at different times and to different degrees. Talking with family and friends and listening to them can help you to get through difficult
