It is my desire to fully discover myself while enrolled in the Executive MBA program. First, I have a strong desire to develop a deeper understanding of the complexities of conducting business in a global business environment.
Second, I want to explore creative ways how I can best explore my inner talents and interests while having fun doing it. As part of my personal vision exercise I discovered that my strengths are writing, multi-tasking and social interactions. As part of my Belbin team role questionnaire, I discovered that I am a “Resource Investigator” and “Team-worker.”
Further Explanation of Team Roles:
The Resource Investigator provides the team encouragement and enthusiasm but is also keeps a finger on the pulse of the outside world.
A Team-worker is the lubricant that keeps the team machine pistons pumping. They are diplomats, listeners, but may not be very willing to take sides in an argument.
The overlying distinction with the Belbin test over others is that it focuses on how one performs in a team environment.
In addition, based on retaking a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test, I learned that I am mostly an ESTP (Extraversion, Sensing, Thinking, Perception). I am enthusiastic, extroverted, resourceful, witty, gregarious and quick to take action.
