self-awareness

in Greensboro this week, taking a week-long course about Leadership Development.. it’s not quite what I expected, as it is largely about personal assessment, getting feedback from peers that are also attending the class, and from asessments and instruments of my peers and supervisors from my workplace.. and by week’s end, I’ll start working on my personal development plan.. I had instead wanted a more systematic nuts-and-bolts on how to do the organizational and management stuff, strategic planning, decision making, and that kind of jazz, but to get that knowledge set without doing it via the overdone MBA route.. and a bit part of me, and confirmed again via the Myers-Briggs test (this time with subscales), I don’t naturally have the traits of T and J that a majority of managers (upper, top tier, and that kind of thing) have, and my score is more and more gravitating towards ENFP as I have taken the test during the past few years. This would suggest that for me to do the managerial stuff of thinking concretely and planning stuff is something I can do, but it’s not naturally fun, yet I probably do have the competency to do it. But it’ll never be fun.
