Meet the Participants
Family Status: Single with one daughter
Occupation: Level 2 system analyst
Strengths: Training. I love to train people on all levels, whether it is a life lesson or a work-related issue, and I feel great while doing it.
Weaknesses: Repetitive tasks. I do not like to do the same thing over and over again. I have learned to minimize this for me by forwarding these tasks to others that enjoy this more.
Biggest lesson from workshop: The greatest lesson I learned is that a strength is something that you feel invigorated from after completing it and not drained.
Update since workshop: After the taping, I began teaching training classes at my current employer. My manager forwarded a very nice review of me to the technology training manager. She decided to allow me to help her department, moving forward to train me to be a trainer. As a result, she believes I am a great fit for a coaching trainer position that is not yet available. She is awaiting approval of her department budget to hire someone in this role. In this role, I would be training attorneys in a smaller setting on our computer software. I have also received a promotion from my previous role of team lead to a level 2 system analyst. This promotion was a step up from my previous role as far as responsibility and pay. My manager now allows me to attend more training classes. I then train my team on what I have learned. This is allowing me to use the strengths that I have. I love attending the classes. This gives me something to look forward to.
Goal: My current short-term goal is to attain the position in the training department and finish my master's degree in secondary education. A long-term goal is to open a state-of-the-art daycare facility that is Christian-based.
