I feel I can give my full attention to the client without having them worry that their problems or concerns are being shared among a large amount of people. However, I plan on developing a network of other counselors to consult with should I run into a situation in which I feel I may need assistance. I am not fond of referrals unless absolutely necessary since this may result in the client deciding not to return to counseling. In regard to the second highest score which is relationships (a difference of .20), the O*NET Summary states that I should explore jobs that let me be of service to others. This score also coincides with my decision to pursue the mental health counseling field.
“Transformational leaders are able to increase follower self-efficacy, giving the group a ‘can do’ spirit. Followers are more likely to pursue ambitious goals, agree on the strategic goals of the organization, and believe the goals they are pursuing are personally important” (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 384). By evaluating and comparing my characteristics with my admired leader, Janet Mock, “People working for charismatic leaders are motivated to exert extra effort and, because they like and respect their leader, express greater satisfaction” (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 381). Developing those additional leadership skills and advancing the characteristics I currently possess, will allow me the opportunity to expand my horizon. Conclusion Understanding and evaluating leadership styles and theories can allow an individual to assess his or her capabilities.
You obviously cannot just give in to all demands an employee might make however and you have to discuss options in depth and try and find suitable outcomes to benefit both parties. It also needs to be considered that not everyone responds the same to motivational methods. All the things I have talked about so far are taking what may be considered a softer approach but this won’t work with everybody. Some employees respond to a harder line of performance management and aren’t interested in things such as on-going training
I have taught my children the importance of sharing and to always help each other out. I don’t want them to be greedy with their belongings as they grow up. I also have taught them to never be mean or talk rudely to anyone because it’s impolite. My family also knows the difference between right and wrong because if they didn’t they would grow up thinking everything they did was ok to do. I want them to know when it is ok to do something and when it’s wrong to do something because if it’s good you will always be rewarded and if it’s bad then something terrible may happen.
People need to take risk to achieve things on their own merit, but there are people who should support them but will discourage them from taking risks because of perceived perceptions of the persons limitations. Risk taking can have benefits for the individual as it will enable them to do things most people take for granted. 1.3) Sometimes we all have to take risks to get what we really want. It’s a part of living a full life. Supporting individuals to take risks to do what they have chosen to do is part of a person centred way of working.
That is my main function within the group, to facilitate the day-to-day actions of the other members. If something needs to get done, I assign a member that task and then follow up until completion. The only draw back so far is my aggressive attitude towards mission accomplishment has caused some of the other members to recent my approach. I do not always ask for things in a nice way, I think being direct is the quickest way to get something completed. The biggest affect that it has on the group is slowing down the amount of work that was getting completed.
To me this is absolutely true. Why should we spend our time fearing the inevitable? We are given only a few short years to experience the world, friendships, loves, and losses. Even the bad experiences teach us to appreciate the good ones. This doesn’t mean we should all go out and be terrible people just so we will appreciate our good experiences, but rather that we should learn from our mistakes.
Unfortunately, I’ve learned the hard way that sadly not all people are good. I tend to face myself against reality when I don’t want to see the negative in situations. Which is why I have set making good friends as one of my goals. I believe that a friend should never hold you back from your dreams and instead they should be there to help and guide you through the bad, the good, and the ugly. They should be a support system and be there for you as much as you would be there for them and it’s always nice to have good influences as you grow into adulthood.
The way he didn’t give up when he did not have to positive encouragement from his community is another reason why this piece stood out to me. It told me that even though that everyone will not be on the same page as you but you should not give up because you are making it count to not only you but someone else that may look up to you. Like when he goes to tell wife Michelle that he wants to quit she tells him that this project will be the most important thing they will ever do. She says that she understands that it will be hard and there will be a lot of sacrifices but she is willing to find out together. By his wife standing by his side willing to change all her ways made me believe that there is always someone there with you even if you don’t know
Exercise 1.1 Specific ways I need to change to be a more helpful person is to always look for the other person first and not just for myself. I have a tendency to put myself first instead of others and I really need to work on this quality. I have great listening skills and make eye contact but I don’t move around when I talk so I feel that would make me a more helpful person also because they would not be bored. Exercise 1.2 If I saw a professional with these labels I would think great they were except for the shrink because might make you think down on yourself instead of there to help you with your problems. These people are all very special and help to provide help in so many ways to help to get a job, a home, medical assistance, to just help with everyday living.
