The Competing Value Framework Survey provides a platform to conduct self assessment on management skills. It is also an important tool for assessing personal skills and can be used for improvement. In my case the CVF, it shows the four quadrants in my spider web is not equal. It is therefore, means that I have unique management skills and based on the self assessment report it is evident that I have areas of strength and weakness.
Based on the self assessment, I am good in mentoring, producing and facilitating. This means that I can work efficiently with other employees to achieve specific organizational goals and objectives. Having worked for an airline company, I can confirm that my skills in producing and facilitating have improved and I found in the quadrant. My jobs with airline involve training and interacting with different people, and therefore, it helped me to gain experiencing in mentoring, facilitating and producing. Most of my work involves advising clients and ensuring that specific needs of clients are meant. It is therefore, proved that my style of leadership is democratic where I involved people in making decisions on various managerial matters (Andrews & Higson 2008, p. 13). I consider facilitating and mentoring quadrants as the best management styles which can build employees through motivation to ensure their performance is improved.
However, my areas of weakness is on directing, and monitoring of employees. This could be because I believe in freedom of employee to work at their own pace and provide report with less interference from supervisor. Based on the result I can conclude that I am following human relations model and the open system as well (Leiper 2004, pp. 172-174). Therefore, in my career I would like to achieve a balance working on my skills to provide direction and supervision of other employees.
