Jay’s Personal Strengths and Weaknesses

There are a number of strengths which I possess that contribute positively in my work environment, in my personal life, and in my Learning Team.

I must be able to move things around.

My first weakness is organization. I am not very well organized. Everything is in disarray. I leave my clothes all over the place. I keep all my books mixed up. My thoughts are everywhere, rarely focused. I plan on improving this weak area by
