This is really never accomplished up to par because of what is lacking in the other areas. Goals and plans to reach them has been the main project on my plate, because of how difficult it is. For the most part, I’ve used my own management instinct to lead the group, and have been successful, to certain degree. But my influence on the group is quite limited as I struggle to plan for goals and methods of achieving them. My measurement of the completion of our goals has hap hazardously been reported on Monday mornings as second priority to certain tasks that need to be completed before I could even call my group successful.
Work is no longer a place where I accomplish goals, thrive, and push myself to succeed at a higher level. My experiences with negative leadership include poor communication, indifference, and distrust. Personal Experience Poor Communication Poor communication is one of the root causes for anguish that I have felt over past two years. A very simple issue was raised over a grey area of my company’s vacation policy because it was not originally communicated properly. This issue could have been easily resolved with effective communication.
The employment process at my company is not the most pleasant for candidates as well as hiring managers. The process takes a long time, and quite frequently human resources are unable to take the time to understand the job requirements or follow up with candidates after the fact. ... ... middle of paper ... ...hat person could be in a position to purchase our goods or services and could remember how our company treated them. Interviews are frequently conducted virtually so it is sometimes difficult to get an open dialogue between the candidate and the hiring manager. The greatest opportunity for improvements is changes in the human resources department.
To be a successful team, I learned that trust is the most important piece; a lack of trust would have led to different results. Prior to this class I did not think I had strong communication skills. I learned that even though I come off as shy during the first and second meeting, I would feel more relaxed throughout the semester. This helped me produce superb work quality. According to my MBTI type, I am an Introvert; I feel that this does not help much in cases of meeting new people and requiring a strong bond since the beginning in order

After, Ms. Estrada finished with her duties and she took me to her office. She introduced me to Ms. Abete, who is a part-time school counselor helping her at this time. She explained me her scheduled for today because she mentioned that it changes every week due to being the only full-time elementary school counselor for the school. She mentioned she has to make changes constantly to her schedule in order to meet her administration requirements and the children’s needs. Then, she proceeded by showing me her room around and the little stations she has for children to do activities depending her grade level.
For instance, I took my O levels last year and I did not score as well as I expected it to be. I worked really hard for it but my result shows otherwise. This of course, dampened my spirits and made me reconsider whether or not I should continue working hard. My ideal self is to achieve everything perfectly as I planned. Having second thoughts about whether or not to continue working hard shows my lack of perseverance.
Not rewarding myself after spending numerous hours on a hard assignment made me feel unpleased after finishing all my work. Rewards may not necessarily be expensive gifts or trip to Europe, but it’s always important to satisfy yourself as an incentive to get something done with. After completing all my work, I usually never had time to reward myself by going the Cinema or going out for dinner with friends. By the time I finished all my work, it would be too late to do anything. I would sometimes feel guilty if I rewarded myself as I believed that even if I was done with my assignments, that I should still sit down and study for any future tests.
This required another whole set of training. I was trained for the first time at a banquet hall a few hours before a meal was served. My boss and my other supervisor were very clear as to how each step should be performed. I was taught how the table should be set and how the silverware should be wrapped. I was also taught how to interact with the customers.
The group started off pretty strong by following the team strategic plan fairly closely. We were unable to follow it as we had hoped because of our conflicting ever changing schedules and the lost track of time. Our ideas were slow coming and the two breaks within the semester lead to this loss of time. I believe that our plan would have been very effective if the subject was one that we were more motivated about. For these reasons I find our plan neither effective nor ineffective, but rather our plan was not entirely executed as we had planned.
