Organization skills are very important because the tasks of life run a lot easier when you know where to find something as opposed to stressing out over finding something in a mess. Teamwork is also an important skill I have learned, when you do something as a team, you can get it done faster. Through cooperation, a team can do just about anything. Out of all the life skills I have learned, discipline has been the one that I have benefited from the most. I have acquired a lot of discipline through drill and ceremonies.
I also scored high on scale-A (agreeableness). This reflects well on my leadership skills, as I am known to have a good relationship with team members. I tend to be understanding even if there is an issue with progress within the team. Within reason, I like to forgive and give second chances to team members who do not meet expectations the first time around. This is usually well received by people I interact with, in a team setting.
Characteristics of a transformational leader are providing vision and direction, gains trust from others, communicates expectations and critical purposes, motivate and influence rationality, advises, and guides individuals (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 383). I tend to be creative with the task given to me and I have the ability to think outside the box. Although I have a high attention to detail, my critical thinking and problem-solving skills make me an effective leader amongst my peers. “[T]ransformational leaders also show greater agreement among top managers about the organization’s goals, which yields superior organizational performance” (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 383). According to a study conducted by Gong, Huang, and Farh (2009), employees who work under transformational leaders had more self-confidence in their ability to be more creative and perform higher (pgs.
I try to avoid conflicts and protect the least advantaged without creating unnecessary hassles for the rest. One of my weaknesses is that I trust reasonable systems to solve most problems. Because of that I run the risk to be considered authoritarian and assuming that my way is best, which is not at all my intention. At some point I could become isolated because not everyone can guarantee equality. My obsession with justice could drive those I care about most away from me.
I believe that as a senior carer I have great responsibility to be a role model for all team members. My team members working under my supervision learn professional knowledge, skills, good attitude and proper behaviour from observing my work as a team leader. I have to make sure that I work as hard as possible or even harder as a team leader to give good example to everybody else. Giving example to others is one of biggest responsibilities of mine and I need to make sure that I am giving very good example so everyone else can learn from me. I know that good leader is one who also inspires other team members by my deeds which contribute in positive outcomes.
Personal & professional development not only benefits me, but it also benefits the Company, as well as the staff & service users I support. I like to focus on training that is relevant to the role I am carrying out and also ensures that I am able to be effective in my role. Continually professional development is important for my career I feel it increases my employability, and also helps me progress with better prospects and to hopefully gain promotion. As a Team Leader I am responsible for others this includes Staff, service users, visitors that come on site including contractors and other professionals, so it is very important to me that I am knowledgeable and effective in my
Thinking in positive ways not only makes me feel better about situations, but I know it also helps other people dealing with the situation too. So if people ever need help with something I might be the person they will like to come too. All in all I am glad I took the survey and got this little outlook on my strengths. I do believe they fit me and I will use them to better prepare for my
When working in a team setting I find myself wanting to start ahead of everyone else and leading the group to obtain the best results. The D style personality weaknesses can include when I over step authority due to control issues. My listening skills are often poor in certain situations, which results to overlooking the important issues. The dominance personality style person is motivated by new challenges and achieving goals. Dominance personality leaders are humble but enjoy verbal recognition as well as rewards.
Avoid insincere weaknesses that are clearly strengths disguised as weaknesses. Statements like: “my driven nature sometimes leads others to dislike working with me because I am always the strongest member of the team” certainly exhibits a weakness in interpersonal skills. The candidate may have intended communicate a strong work ethic and willingness to take on additional responsibility with such a “weakness” but the attempt can easily backfire. Overall, honesty and self-awareness will be noted and appreciated in the process whatever your strengths or weaknesses may be. If you have difficulty knowing your own strengths and weaknesses, it can help to read through past performance reviews at work, think about projects where you were particularly successful and speak with your colleagues and friends about what their perception.
