Read my journal in 2010. When I had my first video conference call interview. I was asked the 2 questions:
1. Describes the 3 strengths of yourself
2. What is your weakness(es) if any?
My answer at that point of time, the 3 strengths of myself are 1) flexibility 2) dedication & 3) creative
Why flexibility? I believe in any business environment, we need to be flexible to adapt any kind of requests (different business model adaptation), culture (as worldwide business, different culture will expect different response) and changes around us (these changes could be anything, political situation, rules & regulations changes ….etc).
I’m a very dedicated person, any assignments and goal set I will use my way to get it done.
Creativity, one should not blindly follow the book. Creativity and innovation way of work and ideas would lead to some unexpected results (sometime this could be negative or positive).
Weaknesses. I would not say there isn’t. Everyone has their own weakness, there is no perfect person in this world. My weakness can be annoying to someone else. I’m an impatient person and this could be the cause of my bad tempered. Well I will not throw a glass or punch people. However I choose to be silent. Silent treatment may not be the best solution, but for me this will be the best for me to control my emotion. This is what I learned over the years.
After 3 years, I have seen my improvement in emotional control. Maybe what had happened in the past, I’ve lost 2 loved one, lost some good friends (those whom i thought are closed), betrayal and accusations. Stress has never left me, but I found a way – diving to help me to release it.
There is still long way to go but I will continue to learn and control my emotion.
