I’m Eric Philippou, and I’m writing this blog as part of my college internship at Metcalf & Associates. I recently completed a series of assessments and the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis. As usual, I like to finish each topic with some reflection questions. The “What do I believe” quadrant represents intentions, and “What do I do” represents actual behaviors. The “what do we believe” section refers to what our student organization, community, or major/department believe. And the “How do we do this” section refers to systems or processes of that organization, community, group, etc. In my answers, I am using the context of a competitive student-organization, in which I am an emerging leader among students, and there are hired professionals at top management.
Next week, we will cover the third step in becoming successful as a college student and as a leader – planning your journey. Do as many of the assessments as you can, so you have a full understanding of yourself, your strengths, and your situation going into the planning of your journey.
