Good Essays

With this type of personality, I have very high standards for my behavior and setting goals is natural to me. I am highly motivated to achieve, especially when I know I am doing that make sense to me or my career.

But over this assignment, I have realized that before the way I set and manage my goals wasn’t the good way. In fact, I have left many potential successes because I failed to set SMART goals. Sometimes, I didn’t set important goals because I didn’t have the SMART approach to my goals, and didn’t realize that they could be important to me. This is nice to do only what inspires me and to let life unfold.
However, there is much more inside of me. Creating a vision is inspiring and it suits my personality. If you want to do your vision a reality, you must do some of that work of setting goals. During the assignment, I have used different supports who help me to write my S.M.A.R.T goals such as Moodle, videos, blogs and a book by Stella Cottrell named «The Study Skills

    I still put great emphasis on building and maintaining relationships, but not as much as I would in a leadership role. This is important because I will strive to achieve the goals that the leader sets forth in the most efficient way possible, even if that seems initially to contradict the leader 's wishes and plans. I also always devote myself to one task at a time, and see that it is done thoroughly and correctly before moving on. This dedication goes right along with the goal orientation, and the two together keep my focus, engagement, and quality of work high, which is ultimately good for all of the stakeholders. Also, my desire to learn, as was mentioned above, is ultimately beneficial to me, and to the organization, even if it is not immediately of use.…

    I feel that I am extroverted, agreeable, conscientious, emotionally stable, and open to experience. I feel that I scored very high in the conscientious category because I consider myself to be responsible, dependable and goal oriented.
