Writing Process for improving by feedback analysis (find out your strengths in up to 2 years): 1. 2. Work on improving your strengths. 3. When I'm working with a group of people I will make sure our values are aligned. I will also keep in mind in the future, that if people's values are not similar to mine, I can always find other people who's are.

A person can perform only from strength. The only way to discover your strengths is through feedback analysis. Work on improving your strengths 3. But work hard to improve the way you perform. Given my strengths, my way of performing, and my values, how can I make the greatest contribution to what needs to be done? To be effective you have to know the strengths, the performance modes and the values of your coworkers. Personality conflicts arise from the fact that people do not know: - what other people are doing - how they do their work - what contribution the other people are concentrating on - what results they expect Do this with everyone you work with: "This is what I am good at. This is the contribution I plan to concentrate on and the results I should be expected to deliver." Q to ask: "And what do I need to know about your strengths, how you perform, your values, and your proposed contribution?" THE SECOND HALF OF YOUR LIFE Three way to develop a second career: 1.

This book is a great reminder on how to be a better person.

Drucker aborda la cuestiĆ³n que todos podemos hacernos sobre nuestros trabajos, y que casi ninguno nos hacemos.
