I’m an easy guy to get along with; I can become friends with just about anyone. I try to find the good things about a girl, and when I do, I find myself eventually falling for them. I get used to the way they act and the way their personality is. Demi was an easy going girl; she kept to herself a lot, staying out of things that didn’t concern her. It was good at times because I wouldn’t have to worry about her getting into sticky situation’s with ... ... middle of paper ... ...ur families never had a problem with each other until I broke up with Demi; then her mom, for some reason held a grudge against my mom, as if it were her fault me and her daughter didn’t work out.
Maria and I never really have deeply connected emotionally but we still have such a great friend ship. With all of these components of her personality is what really bonded us together for all of these years. We still hang out and do crazy things just as we would when we were kids. Her consistency in her life has never changed and I admire how true she stays to her self. She has made me realize the need for balance of keeping a relaxed but cheery attitude, and to never live a boring life, always excite things up as much as you
Leadership is about being versatile and being flexible enough to be both extroverted and introverted when situation calls for it. Leadership is also about influencing others and providing a greater meaning to shared values. I lead and follow best when my relationships with people have a high level of openness and trust. A leader should possess self-confidence and versatility. I believe that leadership evolves from those people who are willing to learn, grow and develop from those who participate in their vision.
Talking to others is not a talent that I have, but it was something I noticed Cheyenne did with ease. She could talk to anyone about anything. I like to flatter myself in thinking I’m a good listener, because people come to me to just talk about their day, and all they need is someone to listen to them. So Cheyenne and I were a good combination. A good talker and a quiet listener.
I expected yelling, crying, and possibly even hitting as the scene unfolded. Sarah is truly very laid back. The most apparent trait that stood out to me during my observation was how easy-going and flexible Sarah was. There was a lot going on, and she just seemed to go with the flow. When one child was having a hard time and being grumpy, it never affected Sarah 's mood.
From this situation, I learned that everybody makes mistakes and all can be learned from. No matter how bad one messes up, there is always time to fix the mistake. My sister is now living on her own, has her own vehicle, and has a job she enjoys. I am so proud of the amount of progress she has made within a short few months. Through all of this, I learned to never make rash decisions on life changing situations.
Introverts do not have to be around others for their energy and are seen to be quiet but that doesn’t make them shy. On a spectrum for Extroversion the two ends are extravert and introvert. Agreeableness is how agreeable a person is and how well they get along with others. People who are highly agreeable tend to be helpful, generous, kind, trustworthy, and considerate. On a spectrum the two ends would be uncooperative and helpful.
I deducted that some of my communications strengths are: I remember people and things they do very well, listen to people well, and engage with people to make them feel important. I do my best to genuinely treat people the way I would want to be treated, and not judge based on stereotypes. On the flip side of those strengths, I am aware I have many areas of communication weakness that I need to improve upon. Some of those areas are: being patient when communicating with others, and letting people know I value their opinions and ways of doing things, rather than acting like my way is the best. Sometimes I tend to come across that my ways are the right ways, and another person’s are not worth consideration.
Communication is something we all should know is ne... ... middle of paper ... ...ong with those words. Listening means that your interested in learning more about what the people in your life making an effort to tell you and making the efforts needed in order to achieve your relationship goals together. However, it is very important to know all communication between partners has to be open, honest, non-judgmental and patient, if you are to succeed and maintaining a happy and healthy relationship. The importance of being a good listener has brought me to realize the consciousness of how to be more considerate of my friends and family when they are trying to communicate with me and I am in turn trying to communicate with them. Communication has taught me to remove myself from the picture sometime and see in the eyes of people around.
As far as trying new verbal communication skills, I will attempt confrontation more often so I become comfortable with the skill. When giving feedback, my stronger points include being specific, timely, and generally observant. I plan to improve on giving objective constructive feedback that focuses on one’s actions rather than one’s innate qualities. Further, I will concentrate on giving feedback that includes a what one needs to improve upon, together with what one is successfully executing. Both of these aspects will come with practice and paying careful thought and attention when communicating.
