100 Days of Self Discovery Day Fifteen – What Are You Good At?

I asked Jordan and he said:

Reading, team leading, consoling, listening, dealing with awkward situations.

I’ve always been told that I’m a good listener. I’ve learnt when to stay quiet and, when it’s important to be vocal. I did a Management Essentials course a few years ago and, we discussed the importance of active listening on this course. Basically what it means is that when someone is telling you a story, you will automatically want to share a similar experience you have had. When you do this though, it draws attention away from the original story and, on to you instead.

I learnt from this that sometimes it is important to just take a few extra pauses and, see if the other person has got anything else they want to say.

I have gained a lot of experience over the last two years in regards to being a team leader. I still have a lot to learn, but it doesn’t intimidate me as much as it use to. Now I just follow my gut instinct.

I cope well under pressure. This means that I’m quite good at coming up with solutions to problems and, not letting people give up at the first hurdle.

I like to think I am good at baking. I do enjoy making cupcakes, flapjack, cake and so on. So far, I’ve not had any complaints either! I made these Rudolph cupcakes at Christmas and, couldn’t put them down! They don’t have any antlers because I couldn’t get any mini pretzels 😦

I do enjoy cooking in general as well. I like to create something that is easy, but that we’ll both enjoy. My go to meal is spicy chicken pasta, but I also like roasted vegetables, fish, omelettes and, you can’t beat a decent fry up!

It might not look like much, but it taste exactly like Nando’s!
