Most people think they know what htey are good at. They are usually wrong. More often, people know what they are not good at – and even then more people are worng than right.
The only way to discover your strengths is through feedback analysis.
Whenever you make a key decision or take a key action, write down what you expect will happen. Nine or 12 months later compare the actual results with your expectations.
Do I produce results as a decision maker or as an advisor ?
Do I perform well under stress, or do I need a highly structured and predictable environment ?
Do I work best in a big organization or a small one ?
Do not try to change yourself – you are unlikely to succeed. But work hard to improve the way you perform.
- What are my strenghts ?
- How do I perform ?
- What are my Values ?
