SELF MANAGEMENT

You would be described as competitive, enterprising, assertive and goal oriented. At times you may find new and different ways to reach your personal and work objectives and you can be critical of your own performance. With appropriate training, you would find that for many aims, objectives or requirements, you would be able to develop your own plan, manage your time and focus your effort on a daily basis to reach those goals. You have the potential to become a good self manager if you build your strengths in such issues as self evaluation, self motivation and directing your own activities more effectively. You would be well suited to most environments that balance responsiveness to internal or external customer and organizational needs combined with the need to plan and execute other tasks and activities. You will likely work well with a manager or project leader who provides clear guidance and coaches without being overly directive.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Use your initiative when you are caught up on your work.

  • Make a habit of planning your daily activity and reviewing it on a daily basis.

  • Demonstrate your ability to work effectively on your own so that you can make effective use of time spent with management. (Managers like to coach effort rather than monitor activity)

  • Review your weekly goals before committing to them but remember that you must live up to your commitments.

  • If you find your workload is too heavy, either discuss it with your management and provide alternative targets which you can meet or try to view it as a challenge which will help with your organizational skills.

MOTIVATIONAL PROFILE

Your motivation is balanced between your concern for the needs of other people and meeting the long and short term goals you have set for yourself. You are most comfortable in situations that offer the opportunity to do both. You would enjoy working in an environment where you are able to meet short term targets which lead to your longer term objectives.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Make certain that you have clearly defined goals and if they are not, define your own.

  • Challenge yourself to meet similar standards each day.

  • Make a commitment to your daily goals and if you find that you are not meeting them on a regular basis, evaluate whether your goals should be revised or whether you have been doing all that you can to achieve them.

  • If you are meeting your daily goals consistently, you will achieve greater satisfaction by increasing your goals slightly and meeting them as well.

  • Record your accomplishments each day so that you will be able to report your progress more effectively to management.

ENVIRONMENTAL FIT

You would be described as somewhat strong-minded, stubborn and reasonably independent. You can accept moderate levels of supervision, and in these circumstances, you would develop some practical alternatives for achieving objectives. You will generally follow existing systems and procedures unless they seem to be holding you back rather than helping you to do your job properly. You will assess the existing systems and procedures regularly and may provide your feedback to management. You could follow your own instincts to satisfy an internal or external customer when the existing procedures do not do so. This approach could be a strength in areas where there are few guidelines and individual initiative is an important aspect of satisfying a client. You would be most comfortable in an environment that permits change.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Seek an environment that is not too highly structured for you.

  • If in a structured environment, look for ways to simplify structure so that you can meet its requirements with less non-productive effort.

  • Develop simple systems and procedures that will enhance your work environment for both you and your peers.

  • Look for situations that will allow you to innovate.

COMFORT WITH CONFLICT

You tend to be comfortable in situations where there is potential for conflict. You may even occasionally create conflict to further your own goals. Comfort with conflict can be a strength and is often found in strong managers but it can also be a trait that is difficult for some managers to handle.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Your comfort with conflict will help you mediate in situations where there is conflict.

  • Develop your conflict resolution strategies to become a better mediator.

ANALYTICAL ORIENTATION

You would be more comfortable in an environment that allows you to learn only what is needed to do your job effectively but does not focus exclusively on analysis and technical matters. You would find it difficult to fulfil your potential in a highly technical situation that does not interest you. You would be more comfortable in a technical environment that allowed you to investigate the general nature of a customer need and then direct the problem to a specialist if it was outside your area of expertise.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Look for work opportunities with less emphasis on technical issues and more emphasis on dealing with people.

  • Focus on your technical strengths and define a strategy to develop yourself in the areas of critical importance to the organization.

  • Identify the key competencies you will need to grow within the organization and the industry and develop these.

  • Make a sincere effort to understand and appreciate the responsibilities of your colleagues.

SOCIAL ORIENTATION

You are generally sociable, friendly and outgoing. You have little difficulty in building relationships and are generally comfortable with other people. You should be able to work well in an environment where there is regular contact with new customers or with a well established client base.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Evaluate and build upon your strengths as a listener. Make it a regular practice to let other people explain themselves thoroughly before offering your views.

  • Evaluate your performance as both a listener and a contributor at meetings with customers and peers. Do you respond to others or follow your own agenda?

  • Some career opportunities require strength as a public speaker. You can develop this skill in yourself by taking part in community service groups, coaching and other similar opportunities.

  • When making a presentation, work on such skills as timing, breaking the ice with humorous remarks and speaking directly to members of the audience.

1994-2002, Quality Profiles Ltd.
 
 ServicePro: Personal Feedback (#000000 for Sample Person on August 19, 2015) Page 4 


SELF CONFIDENCE

You have healthy self confidence, which allows you to feel that able to handle most situations through your own efforts. You accept responsibility for your own performance and expect to succeed in most things that you attempt.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Build on your self confidence and continue to feel good about yourself.

  • Continue to feel responsible for your performance because you can make an impact.

  • Commit to achieving agreed-upon job performance goals.

  • Confidence is good but be careful to avoid the appearance of arrogance.

STRESS MANAGEMENT (MANAGING ENERGY)

You appear to manage your energy and deal with stress quite well. You will be able to work to deadlines and manage difficult situations and demanding customers without suffering the negative effects of stress. Pressure and the ability to cope with stress effectively should even enhance performance in challenging situations.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Identify and understand your own stress coping techniques so you can use them in other situations.

  • Continue to manage stressful situations as challenges that you can meet.

  • Share your stress coping strategies with others if they ask.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Look for a career that provides a clear path to the type of role that you are seeking. If you wish to be an individual contributor in a team environment, look for a relatively structured opportunity that will allow for some individual initiative. If you are planning to grow into a management role, develop your self management potential to its fullest and focus on meeting your commitments to yourself and others on a consistent basis. Improve your leadership skills as you continue to improve your communication skills and career related competencies.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Evaluate how the technical skills that you are developing will lead you to your long term goals.

  • Be prepared for frequent change by anticipating and planning for it.

  • Determine whether your current style of dealing with others is conducive to a leadership role. (see Communication Style)

  • Develop your self management potential to its fullest. (see Self Management)

RETENTION

When considering any career move, you should also consider how long you are willing to stay in the new position and whether it offers the variety and growth that you will need. Some mobility is acceptable but too many moves within too short a period will hurt your career growth. Your profile shows that you would be best suited to a loosely structured environment where you can create some of your own structure and systems as needed.

Developmental Suggestions

  • Look for situations where the overall direction is clear and where your suggestions will be appreciated.

  • Be very careful about committing to a position which that provides the right structure for you. If you are developing properly you will feel more satisfaction.

  • Look for projects and organizations that have clear goals that will bring you a sense of achievement.
