I believe that the SWOT/PLOT tools would be instrumental in helping me to understand my skills and develop a vision for the future. My goals is to create a product or service line in technology based on the creative disruption and innovation paradigm. I want to be instrumental in bringing the change for the community. A SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats) is a matrix that is used to analyze the strength and weakness of the self (Gallagher, 2013). It would enable in the focusing of the strength and to convert the areas of weaknesses into a form of advantage. This would enable me in looking for the areas of opportunities. I conducted a SWOT analysis of myself and determined the following. As a first step, it’s important to understand the threats that I face on a daily basis. The threats that I would face is the competition from people from across the world. In the current times, people are employed from across the world. I need to harness my talents and work on developing my technical skills to survive in the markets. There are a number of natural leaders and spontaneous speakers who speak with clarity in this class.
I should be able to sustain amongst talented people and look for ways to create a niche for myself in the corporate world. The important factor that holds me up is the public speaking skills. I need to develop this skills as it creates a sense of apprehension. I have noticed that when I speak to people I tend to not have the skills that are required to convince a person. I need to develop this skill to express my thought clearly and instill confidence to the people about myself. In other words, my nervousness is my biggest threat. I need to develop this skills. My areas of strength are that I have the ability to be creative and spontaneous. I can spark interest in people and am deeply passionate about my work. I have the clarity of thought to look into the big picture. I can be a visionary leader or a team player depending on my situation. I have the ability to adapt myself to the circumstances.
