The Johari Window is for improving self-awareness, and mutual understanding between individuals. It can also be used to assess and improve relationships with others. Recognizing what others see in us is something that we may not be aware of and accept. One must believe and trust an individual before sharing personal information ("Johari Window," 2010). This paper will discuss some profiles of my personality characteristics and evaluation results. Also summarize assessment results. Then analyze how the scores play a part with relationships and career choices. The profile of my features displays my personal preference and is consistently decisive. I tend to get work done under stressful conditions. I show a lot of positive feedback as a manager. I am extremely confident with my work and decisions. Managers are not perfect, so we tend to make mistakes and learn from them. Being able to take criticism makes an individual a better person and a good manager. Being able to work long hours and with standing prejudices and biases situation is one of my strong points (Schermerhorn, Osborn, Uhl-Bien & Hunt, 2012). My primary mission as a leader is change. I have a lot of concern on what my employers want in life and always thinking of the long term. In this position, I am not only a leader but a teacher. Employees tend to strive for success under my guidance. I am extremely inspirational and love to increase the hope and expectations of all. Getting everyone to agree with my thoughts comes from my power of influence. I make the views where it is a winning situation. Everyone benefits and succeeds from the ideas (Schermerhorn, Osborn, Uhl-Bien & Hunt, 2012). When dealing with a…...

...Wk4, Self-Assessment What did this exercise reveal about you to yourself? The description of the four types of personal orientation to others, named as competitors, individualists, cooperators, and equalizers is another way to understand our unique preferences and how we respond to others (Greenberg, 2013). This exercise indicated an individualist disposition with cooperators coming in second. Since the overall concern or motivation for an individualist is the outcomes related to self, the question now is regarding job motivation. How does this relate to the current job choice since this exercise ended in a self-revelation unbeknownst to me? Regardless of ones personal orientation, effective communication has key elements, which is accountability, professional, brief and sincere (Marques, 2010). Prior to this assignment, if asked about job choice motivation it appeared that it was to help others; therefore the self-assessment gives a total different view. Persons high in individualism cooperate only under some conditions when there is a benefit to self. Were you surprised at what you learned, or was it something you already knew? After reading the chapter it surprised me arriving at the higher score of individualist due to the overall emphasis and concern for others depicted by working in a non-profit whose main objective is helping those who cannot help themselves. Cooperative is not a word that would be used to describe my personality but could be......

...Self-Assessment essay The essays I did were The motivation essay What motivates me on the What about me? section, The What’s my leadership Style on the Working with others section, and How satisfied am I with my job on the job section. I agree With all three outcomes from them, I got a 20 for growth, a 18 for relatedness, and 20 for existence. I’m always trying to expand my knowledge and learn new things at work, I don’t really care about what other think or say about me but I do like to develop friendships with my co-workers, I am looking for a job that pays well and has nice benefits but I’ve shown that when I don’t get that (like the job I have now $40 dollars a week) I still work my hardest and try to fulfill my responsibilities. For the How satisfied am I with my work I agree, I actually like what I do at my job, I love working and fixing computers. I lied on the coworkers part cause I don’t have coworkers but I got a 4.6 on the work part, 3.8 on the supervisor part, and 1 on the promotion and pay part since I only get 40 dollars a week for 6 days of work. He’s a good boss but he is always out and if he’s in store he’s on his phone or texting most of the time and when he is I can’t talk to him to bounce ideas off of him. For the leadership assessment I got a 11 on concern for people and 17 on concern for task. While I do believe a happy worker is a good worker the most important part for me about a group project is getting the work done right. I’ve already had two...

Self-Assessment

...By doing the self-assessment, I learned that I am good at adopting life long learning, and discovering self-motivation. On both areas I scored an 80. I think I scored higher on these areas because I have always been a very independent learner. In school and in life if I did not know how to do something I have almost always been able to figure it out with little to no help. I was not surprised at all that I scored higher on these then other areas. I am the type of person that likes to learn something new every day. I do not require other people being on me about doing the things I need and want to do. All I really need is someone to point me in the direction to learn what I need to learn to be able to do the things I want to do in life. I did not disagree with these scores at all. The areas that I scored the lowest on were employing interdependence, with a 52, gaining self-awearness, and mastering self-management, both with scores of 67. I don't think a 67 is really that low but they could be better. I think I scored lower on employing interdependence because like I said before I have almost always been able to figure things out with little to no help from others. Growing up I did not really have a support group, that had the abilities to help me. My mother grew up with dyslexia, but graduated from high school with help from her friends and her mother. My stepfather has an 8th grade education, due to the family situations he went through growing up. I don't blame them. I......

...Self Assessment Diane Jackson COM/200 Version 3 December 19, 2012 Prof. Kelly Price Noble Self Assessment Gathering evidence to form a perception can be a difficult task. People can misread signals and take things I say wrong just like with anyone else in the world. I thought it would be more meaningful and insightful if the peer reviews were done by people who know me. The people I asked to do the surveys are close to me. I know they gathered their perceptions over time by coming around me and interacting with me through conversations and actions. They got their information to gather a perception from how I am on a day to day basis and how I carry myself everyday in my life. One of the peer perceptions was done by a person that does not know me as well. This way I got a chance to review what was said to see if I am viewed equally across the board with those that do know me very personally and those who do not. I am confident in the way I present myself to others as a whole. I wanted to make sure I come across as the person I am inside. I reviewed my face-to-face communication styles survey. It said that when it comes to dominance, I am neutral. I don’t always have to be in control. My dramatic score revealed that I am for the most part neutral, but that I am a bit less dramatic. My contentious/ argumentative level showed that I am again neutral, but a bit less contentious. When it comes to my animated score it was flat at zero saying I sometimes use sustained eye......

...Self-Assessments MGT/311 July 1, 2014 Donald Ratliff Self-Assessments Within every organization, management must be cognoscente of need to periodically assess their employees overall job satisfaction. This requires an ability to connect with them on a personal level for unlike in the past, an organization that is successful understands there are many facets in effective management that go beyond mere job performance. As the operations manager of a construction firm, the need to delve deeper into an employee’s mindset can make the difference in what management style is most effective and can lead to greater production and overall job performance. Self-assessments can be a useful tool in determining where an employee is at in their work-life balance and can lead to a manager’s ability to effectively manage them. Randomly, I selected three employees to take self-assessments of job satisfaction, engagement, their current emotional state as well as their emotional intelligence, affect intensity, and their ability to be a deliberate decision maker. The results ranged dramatically in some areas with some coming in around the same. Below are the findings of each employee’s response within the respective categories. How Satisfied Am I With My Job? Within the area of job satisfaction, the scores ranged from a low of 65 to a high of 83 illustrating some dissatisfaction with their current job. As the manager, this provides valuable insight into how my employees feel...

Self-Assessment

...As unique individuals we all learn differently, every person has their own learning preferences. Some people have a preference for seeing material in order to learn it, some people have to hear information to absorb it, and others must have their hands wrapped around the subject. Each and every person has a process by which they learn. The following paper will be a Self-Assessment and Reflection Paper of my learning style. I will also assess my strengths and opportunities, available to me, for growth. Finally, knowing my learning style can dramatically expand my knowledge base and putting myself in situations favorable for my learning style will allow me to succeed. I will formulate a strategic plan that will allow me reach my goals. But, what is a learning style? Learning styles are defined as “individual consistencies in perception, memory, thinking and judgment across any stimulus condition” (OMIDVAR, Bee Hoon, 2012, 269). Based in Kolb’s (1984) learning model, I am a visual learner. Visual learners may have artistic ability as they have a strong sense of color, pictures, flow charts, diagrams and visualization, and they write everything for frequent and quick visual review. The Visual learners may have difficulties with spoken directions, sounds and spoken words. (Amran, Bahry, Yusop, Abdullah, 2010/2011, p.328) Learning to me depends on the setting, depends on me, and how my processor is “feeling” at the time of contact. I prefer to work independently, I dislike working...

...Questions: 1. What is the Purpose of conducting self-assessment? The purpose of conducting a self-assessment is to see the faults that individuals are making, this is a way that in the future they can correct whatever mistakes they may have made. This helps an individual move forward in a company, showing progress is a great thing to do in a company because it shows the growth that you have overcame to get to the point where you are. Self –assessments are typically conducted by the manager to employees from hearing the mistakes they are making. If an individual was unaware of what they were doing wrong then it would never be correct and the mistakes will become frequent if not corrected. In the hospitality and tourism industry my plan is to eventually manage a real estate agency in hospitality. With the internship that I have at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices this semester has taught me an incredible amount of useful information about the business.

My plan to get to the management department in the real estate in hospitality would to start off by getting my realtors license after my internship to jump right into the industry.

...Self-Assessment: Communication Style By: Shequita Kelly COM/200 Rose Farmer 6/1/2015 Introduction Communication is a two-way process of reaching mutual understanding, in which participants not only exchange information, news, ideas, and feelings but also create and share meaning. In general, communication is a means of connecting people or places. Nevertheless, taking this self- assessment has helped me learn a lot about myself, it has helped me to identify my strengths and weaknesses, and has also helped me in learning how others perceive me. Now, I know what areas I need to work on, and in order to progress I have to make some changes in regards to my communication style, and how I relate to others. In addition, after taking the self-assessment and reviewing how others perceived me, I was very shocked. At first, I was angry and upset because these are people that are very close to me, and to be honest it hurt my feelings. However, I was able to see the big picture of it all, and I knew that they were just being honest with me. While most people perceive me as confident, professional, positive, and reliable. Other’s perceived me as, closed, unfriendly, and dis-interested. The interesting part of it all, is when I got my results from ‘’what’s my face to face communication assessment, my results and the results from the peer perception survey were identical. Therefore, I knew there was some truth to how they perceived me. I always thought I was friendly, open,......

Of course, no plan of performance improvement is complete without the inclusion of practice. I plan to utilize the turn it in tool to refine my writings with each assessment.

...Self-Assessment Self-assessment is a test that is taken so as to strengths and weakness in a certain area. The test is very significance as sit and lets an individual understand what areas they need to improve and what they are good at. Nothing is as important as understanding one’s self. When you understand how you are and how you are likely to behave in a certain situation, you get to understand how you will react to such a situation. In the self-assessment that I took, it was about knowing what an individual’s decision-making style is. Every day we are faced with b circumstances that dictate that we must make decisions. The quality of the decisions that we make plays a role in shaping our lives. According to the assessment, there are four styles that an individual could use in making their decision. The main aim of this assessment was to identify the style of decision-making that suits me. In the final results, it appeared that my decision-making style is analytical. In the ten questions that were provided for self-assessment, I score six times for the analytical style. This style was the one that I had most scores, followed by directive style where I score three times, behavioral style where I scored only one time, and finally the conceptual style where I did not score any mark. Going by the scoring criterion, the style in which an individual had a lot of scoring is the style that they use wherever they are making their decisions. Therefore, my style of......
