Improved My Leadership Skills…
1. I have improved my leadership skills since joining the program, the monthly meetings gave me an opportunity to speak up without feeling embarrassed by creating a safe space. After I complete my graduation speech I believe I will have completed one of my top accomplishments. 2. Another accomplishment I am proud of is improving my confidence since I am shy and quiet. After a mentoring meeting I realized I didn’t have as many points when it came to being involved in my organization. After realizing that I became more involved in my organization like volunteering for RIF, and being part of the board for housing appeals. My networking skills have also definitely improved, and thanks to the mentoring program reaching out to people from different departments has been easier and faster. 3. Learning my strengths and weakness has also allowed me to get a better understanding of myself and gave me a sense of direction. It is good to compare what you see yourself like compared to what other people actually perceive you as. I’ve been working on getting better at prioritizing and for me finding out how to overcome blinds spots within strengths. This been an accomplishment for me because prior to the mentoring program I didn’t know about blind spots within strengths.
