Personal Strengths and Weaknesses.
"Great leaders know their personal strengths, and look for people who will offset their weaknesses."(Maroney) One of the most important lessons we can ever learn from comes from within. As we go through life, it is essential that we learn who we are, and have the ability to recognize and grow from our own personal strengths and weaknesses. My objective is that through reinforcing my strengths, and overcoming my weaknesses, I will be more successful in both my personal and professional life. .
In my work environment, I constantly reinforce my strengths in the skills that I have acquired. One of my skills at work is the ability to follow directions without having to be reminded the next time I need to repeat that same task. I like to get things right the first time and in order to do that I need to ask questions. This allows me to focus on the task at hand and remember how it needs to get for next month the same task must be performed. Another skill I have at work is the ability of multi-tasking. My boss greatly appreciates this because if I"m on the phone it doesn't mean I can't keep typing in data into the computer. Being multi-tasked can also be used at home.
When making supper there are several things heating up at the same time and I need to make sure nothing gets burned. Strengths I posses in my personal life are appreciated by my friends and family because I"m a good listener. My family and many of my friends like to come and just talk with me about anything. They like the way I just listen to what they have to say without interrupting with my comments or suggestions.
