The most important thing for me can be called a united and cohesive team. In my opinion, this is the most effective way of working together. In addition, group work with other people inspires us to achieve better results. This is due to the fact that the primary motivation is both the desire to justify the expectations and trust of colleagues and that the very teamwork is able to take into account even the most minor nuances of the task (Kriek, 2018). The most crucial thing in this kind of work is the presence of a leader with purpose, effective time management, and the psychological skills to bring the team together and resolve conflicts quickly. I believe that I have all of the above qualities and am well suited to become a leader in our team. This is my goal and I will do my best to achieve it within the next five years.
First, I plan to fit in and show my colleagues that I am competent and diligent. This can be done by completing difficult tasks, helping other employees, and meeting deadlines. The next, and most important step, is team building and cohesion. To do this, colleagues who are skeptical or who prefer to work on their own should be shown how effective teamwork is. This can be done as follows:
- Each employee is highly professional. It has to be shown. Having a specialist in each field in the team can prevent the slightest mistakes, as well as speed up the fulfillment of specific tasks (Leitch & Harrison, 2018).
- Distribution of responsibility. Too much complexity and commitment lead to anxiety and stress. Equal distribution of complexities between all team members allows for avoiding overwork and emotional burnout.
The most crucial purpose of achieving the main goal is to identify the pain points of colleagues, such as conflicts or grievances. The fulfillment of this task is interpreted as achieving a positive atmosphere in the team without colleagues’ complaints to each other. It is also essential to eradicate all misunderstandings and identify factors that create conflict situations. The fulfillment of this task is interpreted as achieving a positive atmosphere in the team without colleagues’ complaints to each other. It is also essential to eradicate all misunderstandings and identify factors that create conflict situations. I believe that this goal is achievable. This requires psychological and observation skills that allow you to notice negative aspects of your work. Psychology helps establish contact with people and break down possible internal barriers, and observation allows you to quickly uncover complex, demanding situations. I have these skills, so I am confident in my competence in this matter. This goal does not contradict but helps to achieve my main goal: to lead and unite the team. A normal team cannot function properly if there are unresolved conflicts or animosities (Wheelan & Akerlund & Jacobsson, 2020). The key date is the day when all conflicts and strife are resolved. This should happen within one year, feasible if enough resources are concentrated to resolve the issue.
Finally, the main goal is a promotion to manager. The key factor that would show me the opportunity to take up a managerial position could be either the promotion or dismissal of the previous boss or when I feel that my skills and knowledge are sufficient to take control of my activities. I believe that my aptitude for learning and development will ensure my professional growth over the next few years. In other words, the development of competence and professionalism will help me to be able to perform larger tasks (Buckley & Wheeler & Baur & Halbesleben, 2020). Far-sightedness and purposefulness characterize the future leader. Two of these characteristics will allow me to improve as an employee, which should lead to a promotion. Thus, this is entirely in line with my main goal. In the five years I set out to accomplish this task, it is possible to excel in various professional and social studies, thus establishing oneself before one’s superiors.
