Introduction

Explain how a person can identify those skills which need to be developed, and how they can develop these skills (Pass Criteria) Identifying weaknesses is important because complacency is a person's biggest enemy. If someone has false satisfaction in themselves then they would fail in the long run because they aren't improving themselves. Whilst others do, they could be left behind. There are several ways in which people can identify weaknesses. One of the easiest methods of doing this so, is to get another person's opinion of you. Through feedback, one can get honest answers about what their weaknesses are. The best people to start with are your parents as they have known you the longest. They would also be more likely to be honest with you. Friends could help identify bad traits of a character because a person is more likely to be their true self in front of their friends. ...read more.

Of course, these are more expensive than asking the people stated above. However, they can provide far more insight into life than other people because they are specifically trained to do this. Personality or aptitude tests could provide a rough outline of what you are lacking presently. Many of these tests are online but the important thing is to answer the question as honestly as one could. If you don't do this, then the result would obviously be flawed. Your successes and achievements are a good way of finding out your weaknesses. They can show you areas where you are lacking. For example, a low grade for maths shows that you have a weakness in numeracy. Ultimately, your personal opinion can provide you with answers nobody could. There are things you do that other people would not know about and essentially, you are in the best position to judge yourself. ...read more.

Conclusion

By working even harder at your weaknesses, you give yourself the best possible chance of improving them. A mentor is an excellent way of improving a weakness. A mentor can guide you and tell you what ways and methods can help you turn your weakness to your strength. Essentially, a mentor can be anyone you want it to be; it could be someone you know and trust or a professional such as a psychiatrist or therapist. Many books have been written on an enormous range of subjects from work ethic to punctuality to body language. Getting to understand your weakness better by simply reading about it is a good idea. One final way of improving your weakness is to identify a role model- a person you want to be more like. By being more like your role model you may find yourself with fewer weaknesses to contend with. ?? ?? ?? ?? BTEC IT Unit 1 Assignment 3 - Task 1 Aman Harees 12B ...read more.
