Alvenia P. Singleton, Faculty
Did your personality spectrum profile and competency results surprise you? Why or why not? No. The reason why my results didn’t surprise me is, I know that I am a overbearing person who likes to take charge and make things happen. I love to follow the rules set forth, by the establishment. The other reason it did not surprise me is because I’m a soldier and statistics show, most people who played high school sports desire to be on a team. Most of the police officers, firefighters were once on a team and the team concept is what intrigues them most of all them desire this.
How can you alter your study techniques to take advantage of your particular abilities and competencies as determined by these activities? I learned that even though I prefer to follow rules when it seems like no one is around my discipline always takes over. The learning curb I have in this class, and being not-so-computer-savy, it brings about many frustrations. I realized I have to confront this head on and make the best of the positives about my competencies to be successful at everything I do. I essentially have to look at it no different from a mission given to me by the US Army. *
How can knowing your abilities and competencies from the My Career Plan help you prepare for professional environments? In my professional environment I learned thing don’t always necessarily go my way. I also, learned things that do have to be looked at in a more positive way. I sometime over overwhelm people with my “Grandiose” attitude and I sometime can’t understand why the work did not get done in a timely manner. I sometime think people are not giving full effort when they are. I sometime forget most people idea of effort is not exactly what my ideas are.
How would you approach collaborative work in the future given what you now understand...
