One of my strengths is organization and I would always seem to be doing something. This couldn’t be truer. Looking at my work experience, most of the time I would plan my daily tasks, communicate with my colleagues, manage and motivate them to work as a team to towards certain goals. From time to time, once I made decisions, I would act on them straightway. One of my weaknesses is that I get bored easily. I totally agree on this point. Probably I made my mind up so easily and acted on decisions so quickly, that it would impact on the results and show that I wasn’t thinking carefully, thus I would certainly get bored very …show more content…
In order to progress myself I would need to communicate with my teammates more often, be open-minded and to fully participate in the group work, instead of staying in my comfort zone. On the Belbin assessment, I have learnt to be more thoughtful and pensive, to face challenges instead of feeling fear to shrink back. In the mean time I will have to develop my interpersonal skills, to be unemotional and be more prudent. To be more accurate and concise in my work I need to be calmer and always listen to others’ opinions. I believe watching some relevant videos and reading books will benefit this endeavor. On the personality assessment, I would need to develop thinking before acting skills. In order to do that I will need to plan ahead of tasks. I have to be accepting of the weaknesses in myself, and work extra hard, spending more time on my weaknesses. On the work turn on and offs assessment I have learnt to be free from bias, to acknowledge that I can’t let personal feelings overwhelm the facts. In the future I think I will talk to someone about my feelings and get a mentor to guide me when I am losing the direction due to an over-emotional

    I have learned from the textbook and class that it is best to establish a close relationship before confronting a person so it would be easier for them to hear the confrontation. I always like to find the root of the problem before I jump to conclusions and confront too early because I could be wrong about the situation. I have a type of discrepancy where I like to use defensive strategies to avoid change. I like having my free time so I tend to push my friends away and come up with excuses.

    I feel that I can change to like to work with others more by participating, getting myself used to sharing ideas and training myself to talk more and getting engaged with the work. That way, I wouldn’t feel awkward if I were to do group work later on in the future. But changing is hard, you need determination and perseverance in order to be able to change. I like to stick with my habits because I’m comfortable with doing things the way I like to do them. But, I know that if you don’t change, then you wouldn’t progress, may not succeed or may even be a laggard.…

    (167) Since it can be seen as easier to question the subject matter of this course I need to strive for intellectual humility to learn as much as possible in the course. How will I achieve this goal? I will keep my mind open to ideas that I may not agree with and I will not allow my own perspective or knowledge to get in the way of looking at new ideas that can be used to build my knowledge and learning. I will keep a journal to list the information I do not understand and with the journal I will focus on the information I do not know to learn more about it.

    The more gifted students I come across the better I will be at adapting my lesson to challenge them. I also plan to continue asking the teachers I am placed with what suggestions they would have. Another weakness of mine is I tend to move too quickly through my lesson plan. I need to be able to really drive an idea home once I notice that my students are understanding the concept. It isn’t enough for them just to understand; I need to work beyond this and get them to fully grasp it with additional problems that are not included in my lesson plan.…

    I understand the importance of proof reading, researching, editing and composing my writing to create a higher quality than before I commenced this course. Effective writing is being aware of the value of taking an audience into consideration, as a writer I have learnt the importance of staying on target with your chosen audience.
