Differences in perspective and self-criticism

<Differences in Perspective>

When I was in Dell Korea ten years ago, what my manager said was still memorable.
I talked to the manager for a while about many issues, problems, and troubles in the workplace. Then, the manager said, ‘Seonghwan, do you know the funny thing? More than 70% of workers think that they are working harder than the company or their managers think and do their job better than the company or their managers think.

However, in reality, the company or the managers recognize only 10% ~ 20% of people who work well and the rest do not know what they are doing.

Could it be compared to the ‘difference of view’ that my experience is now being talked about 10 years ago? It seems to be a parallel theory. The difference in position can lead to a difference in individual performance. In other words, in my position (perspective), ‘I work so hard …. I work so well, why do not you know the company?’ But about 70% or more of managers think they do most of the unnecessary work. Is the story going too far? Anyway, I think it is necessary to have the ability to see what you are doing objectively from the manager’s or company’s perspective.

<Ability to self-criticize>
One day, junior, an expert in the field of personnel, comes up. “Sir, do you know that a person is a genuinely talented person who has a strong self-criticism ability? Those who know how to objectively identify their own abilities and positions, who are critical of themselves, have great growth potential, We have to pick talent. ”

It is not an era of solitary pride that only oneself is proud of their ability in this age. The ability to empathize with other people’s opinions, that is, the EQ should be high, and conversely, those who communicate their opinions unilaterally are not aware of it in easy words. EQ is low. Such a person will usually try to occupy more than 70% of the conversation without understanding the atmosphere around him. If I think I’m occupying most of the meeting or conversation time, I should be able to stop quickly. Let’s look around. Do you still think your colleagues listened to your story?

One of the ways to switch topics is to ask the other person. You have to ask participants questions and draw others.

Let’s develop self-criticism ability from an objective point of view through various perspectives.
