Personal Management Strengths and Weaknesses
Compare your own performance against the pointers below to see how you are doing – and then, depending on the outcomes, do something about it!
You want to make sure that something gets done and that it meets the requirements of the customer, whoever that might be. In this way Dependability is built through consistent follow-through day after day.
Setting up processes and people to efficiently get the job done. This is all about the ability to connect people together in order to complete a task and usually have a great understanding of process. Timelines and deadlines are set and followed.
Be passionate about your ideas and values. This enthusiasm usually helps bring other people aboard and inspires people to follow.
Always look for new approaches to old ideas and think in ways that others do not. Once done build a plan around your new approach.
Getting so caught up in the details that the bigger picture is lost. Here there is no push to look for better solutions and innovations which is a key management responsibility.
Resistance to Change
Once comfortable with a system, managers tend to resist any change to the system. The push for improvement and using change as a positive agent for change is ignored.
Lack of logical thinking
Jumping straight into your ideas without much forethought or planning. The result is oftentimes a slow start or more likely failure with a loss of face and reputation quickly following.
Not letting go of your ideas or projects, even when you really know that this needs to change and things will not work the way that you want them to.
Evaluate yourself and make the changes that you need to make.
