RE: Sample Response & Peer Reply
Where I need improvement at in my career or in my life, is being able to hold a conversation in a huge groups of people. I’m a great debater and I value other opinions, but I was always that person that was so geared up to talk. When time to talk I was mostly was shy at the same time. Normally I freeze up if I talking to unfamiliar people. Normal 75% it is because I don’t know no one, or I feel like I’m going to start talking and get off topic because I’m too nervous.
I know if I was to come out of my shield a little, and start challenging myself to start talking more to unfamiliar people and share my opinions and listen to others this will play a big part in my career and have me ready for challenges ahead of me. My confidence also be well develop by then.
RE: Week 2 Discussion
The area that I chose that needs work is being able to speak up in front of a large number of people. I can’t say that I am shy, because I’m not. I have thoughts, but would rather speak to someone one on one instead of in a large group. I am trying to work on this and have started small. I set up small group sessions and am working to get comfortable about speaking up in those settings. I’m bad about staying quiet unless specifically asked something point-blank. I want to be able to speak the ideas or thoughts that I have without having to be singled out and asked. I feel this will have a positive impact on my career because then others won’t see me as “quiet” or “shy” and will know that I do have things to add and improve things for the team.
