Self-Assessment
The effective use of qualitative research

When I first embarked upon this course, I only had a vague idea about the purposes of the different qualitative research methods. While I knew the distinctions between grounded theory, case studies, phenomenology, narratives, and ethnographies on an intellectual level, when I assessed different studies over the course of my own research, I was less concerned about the different processes used to reveal the results than I was about the results themselves. By virtue of taking this course, I am much more process-oriented in my analysis. Now I see it is impossible to understand the results of a study without an intimate understanding of how those results were achieved. Critiquing and understanding the final conclusions requires a full understanding of the assumptions and methods of the researcher.

A researcher's choice of methods can affect the accuracy of the results and the standards by which those results….

Self-ASSESSMENT OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Intelligence

Overall, my emotional intelligence score is 82. Scores of 80 -- 89 are considered strong, and those people with scores in that range can count their emotional intelligence as a strong upon which they should continue to build. This is interesting news for me. Emotional intelligence is an issue in education and in the professional world that has garnered increased attention in the 21st century. Gardner's theory of multiple intelligence is now two decades old. At first, considered radical and tenuous, now is considered practical and growing increasing more necessary in order to function in this 21st century society, as well as a sought after commodity and skill. I do have confidence in my score, but very good scores are sometimes difficult. They are better than average, yet they are not outstanding. Very good scores require very fine tweaking in order to push them just a few….

Self-Assessment and eflection
According to Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More than IQ (July 1997): "Self-awareness includes the competencies of emotional awareness, accurate self-assessment and self-confidence. Skill in knowing about personal strengths and limits and self-worth are related to these competencies." Various professional tests I have taken have provided me with some insights into my own personality characteristics and personal and professional strengths. For example, according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, my personality type is ISTJ (introverted, sensory, thinking, judging), which I find useful in assessing my own personality style and strengths. The Fundamental Interpersonal elations Orientation-Behavior (FIO-B) test, an assessment tool used for improving working relationships and individual effectiveness, places me at the midway point between 'need for inclusion' and 'need for total control'. In other tests I have taken, results indicate personality characteristics including self-confidence; adaptability; initiative; empathy; service orientation, and ability in conflict….


Assessment Synthesis

Some of my mistrust may come from my personal timeliness, and my sense that teams can occasionally procrastinate and pull other people back. Accepting others differences is indeed difficult. (Kroeger, Thuesen & Rutledge, 2002, p. 3) I need to make the differences of others work better for both myself, and my organization. Even if I am doing a good job, I must make my internal criticism of others less judgmental. (Kroeger, Thuesen & Rutledge, 2002, p.7) Instead of just buckling down and working harder, as I have always done, I need to strive to make the work styles of others work for me, rather than against me, and combine the mutual skills of everyone at the office to realize the goal of a project.

Of course, I would like to retain my strengths as an individual. My desire to exercise leadership potential and to learn more at work could be….

There are no good or bad personalities, and diversity creates strength. This is particularly true in terms of teams, where having D, I, S, and C-types working harmoniously together enables all tasks to get done by the individuals with the greatest core strengths in specific interpersonal areas. Different team members can compensate for one another's weaknesses.
One problem with team-building between different types, however, is the fact that the different types often have radically different communication styles. The C-type's focus on facts and data may conflict with an S-type's focus on people. But many people, including myself, are made up of a conglomeration of different types and merely exhibit tendencies towards one type or the other. This means that there may be more points of commonality than one might initially suspect. Still, in a diverse work team based upon DISC principles, it might be a good idea for people to….

Self-Assessment Progress Report Three

Attribute 1:Outgoing Attribute 1 Score

Attribute 2: Decisive Attribute 2 Score

This report summarizes my post-assessment reflections and my progress while working on change activities to develop personality attributes of sociability and decisiveness. I feel confident that I have achieved Level III. I have invested my time and energy to be able to progress to this level, and now that I have been exposed to this kind of growth, I plan to continue on my own.

I can make this claim because I consistently applied the Three Rs change model so that I could improve my OPQ scales. I also put a lot of effort into reading books that my mentor suggested, along with doing recommended exercises and activities. Every day I try to push the envelope a little further, to push myself outside my comfort zone in….

The all Street gurus who had trumpeted deregulation were now seen demanding a bail-out from the federal government. For business enterprises to thrive today demands an astute understanding of philosophy and ethics, which is why professors are weaving Rousseau and systems theory into enterprise courses.
To understand the nature of business ethics, it is also critical to understand systems thinking. A business does not operate in isolation from the environment in which it operates. The University of Denver publication "The Essence of Enterprise" points out that "Every system has a purpose within a larger system." The business is therefore a system within a larger community. Ethics begins with an awareness of how businesses impact more than just their shareholders. Businesses impact the environment, the social and political climate, and the economic stability of whole regions.

The managing of risk is a constant ethical dilemma in business. How much risk is acceptable….

Self-Assessment of Academic Development
In today's wold it's the desie of almost evey individual to have good education and a bight futue. To follow and accomplish this desie the individuals look fo an institute which is up to the standads of moden innovations in the discipline of leaning and knowledge assisted by the pofessional instuctos, poject manage and in geneal whole of the faculty. Like all the othe individuals, I also had the simila goal to attain best education and leaning in the most pofessional style. This aim of mine has esulted in the selection of this institute.

Questions egading self-assessment in academic development:

Adopted stategies and thei significance:

The accepted stategies that wee employed by me to manage the leaning equiements of my teaches wee dependant on my ability of leaning as I eckon that each individual's ability of leaning is diffeent fom the othe. Some students get the teache's point ite duing….


Another option is to run a nursery school. This would be more intellectually challenging, as preschool preparation is often an integral part of these facilities. Also, it demands a more structured day, more experienced and competent teaching personnel, and often children stay longer at the site. Parents feel comfortable leaving their children in the care of others for longer periods of time when the children are older. For this business, advertising is likely to be more formal and less on a word-of-mouth basis than for a home or group day care center for young children, as parents wish to find the most competent individuals to prepare their children for entering school. This would be more ideal for my previous sales, marketing, and managerial experience. I would be able to make decisions about how to shape and have an impact on the children's lives.

An after-school child care center would make further….

Careers in the corporate sector, especially those within multinational organizations, NGOs or government agencies would be the ones most suitable for my personality and value system. Similarly, my ability to deal with change and stress make me well-suited for careers in the global business environment, in which I would be expected to travel and communicate with people from different cultural backgrounds than my own.
The Gospel and Personal eflection" offers advice on how to navigate through the world with greater self-awareness. As an ISTJ, I know that I work best in a structured environment. I expect loyalty from others because I exhibit it myself. Thus, I would do well to avoid individualistic work environments or situations that incite competition due to a lack of internal consistency and cooperation. At the same time, Fischer suggests developing a sense of understanding for different personalities and communication styles. An ISTJ does tend to….


Another problem is that, in the light of the volume of information, I also find it difficult to construct sensible paragraphs to present my ideas and information in a logical way. Because academic writing depends upon the presentation of ideas in a logical and concise way, I believe that this will be one of my main areas of focus when I attempt to improve myself.

Growth Plan

One of the most important element of a growth plan is self-knowledge. I now have a knowledge of my precise strengths and weaknesses, which I can use to construct a self-development plan.

The first part of my plan will then involve finding a way to use my strengths in order to improvement weaknesses. In research, my major strength is my ability to find relevant, high-quality academic information. A weakness is that I find rather to much of this to allow time for a concise and well-constructed….

Self-Assessment in a Group

Self-Assessment in a Group
Recent experiences with a team project more clearly demonstrated my general strengths and weaknesses when working with a group of people. The particular team research project involved investigating a small internet advertising company with three Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and forty employees. Our main tasks can be divided into three significant categories: finances, interpersonal relationships, and specific tasks. For example, we determined the monetary feasibility of the company, taking into account salary levels, benefits packages and bonuses for employees, as well as turnover rates. We also analyzed interactions inside and outside of the office as well as the feedback and performance appraisals given by employees. Finally, we investigated the distribution of tasks and clients and examined the type of direction in which the company was headed.

We held several team meetings to discuss our research projects. One of my strongest points was an excellent attendance level. Because I….

Even if there is a world hereafter, because that world will be so inconceivably different, I cannot enter it calmly, with open arms. Part of me is glad that I cannot, like Emily Dickinson say coolly: "Because I could not stop for death/he kindly stopped for me." hen I am older, perhaps, I may be able to confront death with resigned acceptance. I have known people facing illness and old age who say that they have no regrets, and simply surrender and bow to the inevitable. But I can only think of all of the things I still wish to do in life, when I hear the world 'death.' I think of my loved ones, of children whom I will never be able to see grow old. I even wonder who will take care of my pets.
Our culture and other cultures deal with death through euphemisms. The metaphors of….

Self-Assessment
Many of my greatest weaknesses and strengths can be attributed to my being an international student who has spent only one and a half years in the United States. Because of the language barrier and culture shock, I have often had to contend with shyness in my relationships and especially in group settings. I am still learning a lot about American culture and customs and feel often that I lag behind in terms of understanding certain ways of life and means of communication. However, learning how to overcome my weaknesses has also created much self-confidence and strength of character. Although group settings are still difficult for me sometimes, I try to maintain a positive attitude and sense of humor. I have noticed immense improvements since I first arrived here and am sure that these improvements will continue as I immerse myself even more.

Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to….

self-assessment of any familiarity with ethical codes, principles and laws and personal professional development goals for the semester in relation to these topics and your growth to date. You should discuss your strengths and weaknesses using these, and your plan for enhancing your assets and reducing your limitations.
I am familiar with the general principles of ethics that are mainly intuitive, for instance, respecting the other, treating their coincidences confidentially, and not manipulating them in any way as well as not having dual relationships. The ethics of counseling / social work / related disciplines are actually intuitive and built into the system with all the details revolving around this.

On the other hand, I do need to gain a greater in-depth familiarity with the various nuances so that I familiarize myself with different situations and know how to apply myself in particular situations that may differ from the rule. I will….
