Organization behaviour Reflection
Ducker, managing oneself has been effective in developing essential knowledge about my strengths, weaknesses, learning style, values, and identity (Drucker, p. They are critical aspects and attributes that are crucial in the management of organizations and ones that have seen me evolve into a more assertive manager over time. Also, through being an active member of the sporting club and reading widely, I have been able to understand the major weaknesses and strengths that I possess several areas and even learn how to improve them for better effectiveness. Moreover, by understanding my negative and positive sides, I have been able to adequately understand my personality and motivation aspects that have helped me succeed in working in a college setting (Drucker, p.
The highest point in my career working in the college was when one day the manager of the college was away for some duties, and I was supposed to cover up for him. I had to stand up for what I felt was rights and to ensure a good working relationship I talked to the executive officer, and I was agreed that those promoted to the temporary positions be added some benefits pay. After this was implemented, the two workers became very friendly, and working relationships improved (Drucker, p. In the past, I had never realized that I possessed any weaknesses, strengths, values, learning styles, needs, and motivational aspects. I came to realize all these attributes when the working environment turned harsh on my side, and I was triggered by circumstances to think creatively and critically.
Some of my strengths involved working hard even when the support from my subordinates was little, holding apposition I had never held before effectively and also putting the lives and considerations of my fellow working colleagues above mine. Values are meant to change with circumstances, and the environment is in the most case shaped by an individual's emotional status. For instance, throughout life, I have had critical instances when I felt my values were changing. In most cases, difficult moments were essential in enhancing these changes (Sutton, p. For instance, while working at this high position in the college, I realized that when my emotions conflicted even attainment of duties was difficult as my actions became reduced. This is the reason I had to do everything possible to ensure the financial aspects of us all are meant to get motivated into action.
The office work is also too demanding which makes a person lack time for leisure and personal duties. After holding the high office for some months, I was ready to leave the job as it had become unbearable always to pretend to be happy and emotionally stable while I was suffering from inside. For instance, at the end of every school week, I was feeling drained, tired and physically worn out (Drucker, p. The urge to leave the job was not because the performance was poor, but because I wanted to have a break and explore other better and even more challenging jobs. I further, wanted to get enough time to reflect on my future roles as a manager and think about ways of developing weaknesses into strengths.
Through the use of coaching and leadership styles my desires to make an impact in other peoples' lives are evident. Also, my personality traits, values and motivation attribute through the many departments in learning institution depicts my ability to establish lasting relationships which make ones work better. These behaviours have taught me to always work hard in any positions and promotions will automatically be awarded. However, lack of values and motivation elements makes a manager powerless and ineffective in bringing the most desired changes in an organization. Such aspects of motivation, learning styles and strengths and weaknesses make me better positioned to work in more challenging institution and environments in future as a manager (Nelson, p. Peter, Managing Oneself, Harvard Business Review, 1999, pp.
