Discussion Two: Self-SWOT

he purpose of this section is to evaluate your own strengths based upon the characteristics of a good manager (as you explained in the Management Philosophy section). This self-SWOT should ask the following questions:
Strengths

What characteristics of a good manager do you possess?
What aspects of your personality or style translate easily into management skills?
What aspects of your background and experience have prepared you to be an excellent manager?

Weaknesses

What characteristics of a good manager do you lack?
What aspects of your personality or style contradict the management skills you described in part 1?

Opportunities

How can you capitalize on your strengths? How can you capitalize or improve upon your weaknesses?

Threats

What experiences or characteristics LIMIT your ability to perform as a manager?

Everyone should be able to identify weaknesses and threats in their own management style, so be honest.
