1746 WordsDec 3, 20157 Pages
Introduction: This paper is my personal SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis discusses four specific categories to evaluate a project, situation or in my case my personal and professional life (Hay, Castilla, 2006). In this analysis I will look at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that I need to address in my life. The concept of this type of analysis is a great way to find out ways to improve, but at the same time is a difficult task for someone like me who has a hard time outwardly expressing self attributes. That might be one of my weaknesses or threats, on the other hand it might be what makes me a good listener to others. I will refer to the SWOT analysis chart throughout this paper (figure 1.1) the list was difficult but, I feel it is pretty close to complete. STRENGTHS • Ability to learn quickly • Adaptable • Great interpersonal skills • Ability to read people and listen with intent • Diverse work history within several industries • Ability to lead or follow • Have helpful opinions WEAKNESSES • Speaking in front of large crowds • Fear of failure • Lacking management skills • Not always self-motivated • Fear of career change/unknown • Not always receptive to others ideas • Ability to say no • Not managing time to allow for experience growth OPPORTUNITIES • Volunteering • Continued leadership classes • Shadowing • Willingness to learn • Diverse work history has allowed diverse network of people THREATS • Financial loss due to no management experience
