I created a category called “weaknesses” for this blog. The purpose for this is, for me to be able to sit down, reflect and think through the areas in my working life that I am not good at and hopefully be able to improve on them.
To start off, I know that I am not the greatest communicator. I have less than perfect English, but that's only the part of the problem, I think my inability to explain complex concept (orally) in a clear way is one area that I can improve. That's why I tend to write long e-mails at work to explain things that I know I cannot explain clearly by speaking them. This weakness will be detrimental if I am moved into more of a consulting position when I have to speak to clients often, luckily I don't find myself speaking to clients often so far.
