Core Competency Reflection
As an active listener, I notice that I pay close attention to both verbal and non-verbal cues, empathize with the speaker’s emotions, seek understanding before responding, maintain eye contact, and engage in reflective listening. I strive to create a safe and supportive space for meaningful communication.
I am clear on the difference between simple “group work” and collaboration as evidenced by the collective effort and shared responsibility exhibited by team members. Effective collaboration involves active participation, open communication, leveraging diverse perspectives, and a unified commitment towards achieving a common goal.
I remain open minded as I explore viable options or alternative approaches, like when my partner and I were doing the Comic Book project we had some disagreed on a couple of things that we wanted to do so we weighed our options and we came to a agreement that allowed us to get the best work that we could have done.
My strategies for collecting relevant information for specific tasks include. My goal is to conduct thorough research using credible sources, utilizing various information retrieval methods, critically evaluating the gathered data, and organizing it in a systematic manner. The goal is to gather accurate and comprehensive information to inform decision-making and enhance task outcomes.
