What is interesting about re-learning an important self-evaluation strategy is what happens when you re-evaluate your strengths. Then observe the weaknesses. paying particular note of what you are allowing to hold you back.
After reading this in one of the modules “Without a concerted effort to identify your strengths and weaknesses, you won’t be able to improve upon them in your professional life. Fortunately, there are techniques you can compliment to find these traits so you can align your actions accordingly.” something positive had to be done.
Every one of us develops things that they are good at. Sometimes there are ‘bits that are not understood’. Usually, people ignore these bits .. avoid them like a plague. Managing to do without the use of them for years. Then an awareness creeps in. That “action what you have learned” step would be the next logical sequence in events. Time to face the fear of not understanding the jargon used within the instructions. Open the platform and get on with putting it to use.
Holding onto that fear is not a great way of building on your strengths. In order to build on the skills and then evaluate your strengths, you need to open up the platform and work out what and how and where things go. To ask a friend means interrupting their daily life and routines. Sorting out all the questions needing to be asked when the topic is not known to you these days means lots of research. Taking hours out of the week.
There have been too many times where the confusion of data and information has occurred. That there was little opportunity of going over things one more time without the confusion of other words being used. With this training though the supplied video transcript made it easier to find the ‘gap’ while following along. No more trying to choose an optimal time to discuss the topic as the timetables clashed and sometimes it was hard to wake up for that local time 3 am appointment. The topics of these videos are 24/7 350 days a week for the DEA Silver members.
Where are the opportunities? To evaluate your strengths look at your weaknesses. What is missing from the workflow? What is hindering the reaching of a goal? Is there an automation process available able to be utilized like the micro-learning step by step ‘playback-able’ HootSuite modules. Simultaneously play that lesson micro-video through. Stop and starting where the process needs working on.
Having a friend say to you “let’s try to find something special in your own field” was different from having a mentor bring the conversation around so that you are wanting to ” find something special in your own field.” It’s harder then to ignore the obvious tools that are out there enabling people to learn how to use the tool that will move the project forward towards the goal
These few things were revealed when progressing through the DEA’s Silver Platform training “Identify your strengths and weaknesses’ micro-learning topic.
Now today the tackling of the Hootsweet is something that is looked forward too. By the end of the implementation and setting up the scheduling the weakness will have turned into a strength.
Have a terrifically uplifting day
