Last week I told you about crisis situations and how to recognise, deal with and respond to crises. Today I present my second toolkit. This will help you realign your line of thought from “I am, therefore, I can” to “I can, therefore, I am”. I am not getting even slightly philosophical here, because this is how things are. All of us get to the positions and job titles because of our abilities not the other way. So, how does this work?
A SWOT analysis is nothing new. It stands for analysing your Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. I would like you to go back in time to when you delivered something phenomenal in your career, and do a SWOT analysis of yourself at that point of time. The best way to do is as shown in the image below.
Now that you have done the SWOT analysis for a time in the past, I would like you to repeat the SWOT analysis for right now. Do exactly the same thing, but in relation to your Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, now.
After you have done this, I would like you to compare both these SWOT analyses and see if there are any differences.
Again, if you want to know more or share your SWOT comparison, feel free to get in touch.
