A skill is defined as “the ability, coming from one 's knowledge, practice, aptitude, etc., to do something well.” My three strongest skills would have to be teamwork, problem solving, and leadership. I exemplify my teamwork skills by serving as a team player and creating positive work relationships with everyone in my department to help achieve organizational goals. One example of this would be assisting my fellow co-worker with a work project that she is unfamiliar with. I’m also a good problem solver. I have the ability to identify problems in my department and generate alternatives and implement a solution to preclude the problem. I look at problems from different angles and try to see what would be the best solution. An example of this skill would be a recent change I suggested in my department. There were multiple occasions where employees were scheduled for training sessions, but were not being notified before the date of this activity causing them to miss their training session. Many supervisors stated they themselves did not know the dates when their employees were scheduled for training. To fix this ongoing issue I now print out a training schedule every month and post it in the lunchroom and main office so that it is visible to everyone in the department. I also send the schedule out in the beginning of the week of the scheduled training session via email to all the supervisors. This has eliminated missed training sessions and it also gives the opportunity for
My transferable skills are interpersonal skills, integrity, time management, creative, helping motivates others, being able to evaluate my work and others, and multi-task, My first transferable skills are interpersonal skills which is being able to communicate and work well with others. The second transferable skills I have is being integrity which is another way of saying being honest. If say I'm going to do something I keep my word and do it in a timely manner. Third skills is being able to use time manangement wisely. I will do all assignments in timely pace hen waiting to the last mintues when there are due. Im very creative, so even with a small budget I'm able to make an excellent project. I very much enjoy helping motivated others to
Planning and organizing skills, I enjoy figuring out what is required in getting a job done and working out how and when it can be done. This can be seen in how I develop a personal study timetable and managing time around work and studies.
The three-skill approach argued that effective leadership required three skills: technical, human and conceptual skills. Technical skill refers to proficiency in a specific activity or type of work. Human skill refers to being able to work with people and conceptual skill refers to the ability to work with broad concepts and ideas. The three-skill approach asserted that,
The Clifton Strength assessment I took listed my top five talent themes as Responsibility, Achiever, Learner, Focus, and Connectedness. Three of these top five fit into the executing domain; Responsibility, Achiever, and Focus. They deal with working hard and getting the job done. My strategic domain is as a Learner; this skill allows me to think outside of the box and tailor the approach to the specific situation. The fifth theme, Connectedness falls into the relationship-building domain. This is the strength that I feel is most important in my life and would like to continue to develop it throughout my entire life. It is the summation of all aspects and who I strive to be.
I do not believe that skills can be thought, person either poses certain skills or not. For example people skills, it is very hard to teach someone to be polite or respectful to clients and co-workers.
The three skills I would like to work on are converting “YOU” statements to “I” statements, Responding to Criticism and Assertive Communication. I wanted to work on these particular skills as I need to be more outspoken at work with my manager and would like to improve my communication with my family and friends since they are the ones I socialize with the most.
Overall, I feel that our team is working well together. At first, I was very skeptical going into a group of five people and not knowing anyone. Yes, within the group there were familiar faces, but I had never talked to any of them. It turns out that the one thing about our group that makes us click so well, is that none of us were friends before. This allowed all of us to get to know one another and understand how each of us work in a group. I love the fact that we don’t have those two people who are very close and agreeing only with each other. It allows us to truly pick the best ideas without thinking that we’re hurting our friend’s feelings by not picking theirs. This has made the project beneficial
The greatest skill I have would be my determination. Determination to me means never giving up and to always give nothing but my best. I have developed this skill through my school work and my parents showing me where determination could truly take me in life. Growing up, I've always been taught to give nothing but 100% in anything and everything I do. I've always been told to do it right the first time or I'd regret it the second.
Being a team player is more than just working well with a group of people. Playing softball has taught me its true meaning. Being a team player is about staying positive, helping others do better, and lifting up a teammate.
The single most important ingredient in team success is a clear, common, and compelling purpose. Too often, a team’s purpose is ill-defined, uninspiring, or foggy, leaving the team to figure out what success is supposed to look like. Teams are merely a means to an end — a method of achieving desired outcomes that are too big to reach through individual efforts; they are not the end itself. And it is team purpose that provides the reason for collaboration. A clear, compelling purpose gives reason for people to commit to a team. A common purpose not only calls the team together, it also holds the team together during the inevitable turbulence that will be experienced on the journey.
I would have a positive influence on the team I would be working with because I am genuinely committed to my legal career, thus I would be committed to Lindsays and the team. I would be willing to take on more responsibility and extra initiative. I would create positive work relations with everyone in the team. I would work hard and produce work of a high quality. Furthermore, I have a confident approach to all tasks and I am approachable. Therefore, I would ensure team members can approach me if they needed me a hand or wanted to provide me with some feedback. I am a positive person, so I believe I would bring positivity to the team.
One skill I have that I believe to be the most useful would be my dedication/motivation. When I set my mind on something, I do not stop until that task is done and it is done sufficiently. If something is left undone
The first positive role I feel that I could assume in a team would be the encourager. George Manning and Kent Curtis (2012) define an encourager as a person that is friendly and diplomatic, while making valuable contributions (Manning & Curtis, 2012). I think I would be great in this role as this is essentially how I try to run my team of direct reports. Of course I try to provide far more direction and guidance but since they are very tenured and experienced, it is better to not micromanage them. Encouraging members to bring ideas and their talents to the group promotes synergy and cohesiveness amongst the team.
My supervisor, who I work with directly every day, states that my best leadership strength is my ability to teach. I seem to be able to take a complicated process and turn it into an understandable concept. She also thinks that I have a creative side, with the ability to work out a convoluted problem in my head. For my third strength, she notices that I am extremely patient, but consequently it borders on slow reaction to crisis. Another leadership weakness is that I need to be liked by others and have a difficult time holding others accountable. She stated that I am at times too helpful; this can stifle the learning and ability of my
One of my greatest strengths at work that I have recognized would have to be my ability to be a well-organized individual. I tend to write what I have to do down on paper and prioritize what is more important to least important. In doing this, it helps me organize and accomplish my work and meet deadlines that are important. A personal strength
