Swot Analysis : My Personal Swot

1746 Words7 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.
