Do I See Myself as a Change Agent?In general terms, I do see myself as a Change Agent because I ask a lot of questions and am interested in listening to people's stories. I have taken quite a few Cultural Anthropology courses in college and am always interested in why people do what they do.
When I was a teenager, I watched my mother go into a company, interview all of its administrative employees and write several procedures manuals for their positions. In some cases, the workflow was changed based on her recommendations. She even hired me to help her with the filing.
Although I can be rather pessimistic at times, I strive to maintain a positive attitude. I think about many possible scenarios and look to other people for sides of the story that perhaps I missed. In the Myers-Briggs Career Personality & Leadership Tests, I scored so close to the middle in all categories that a Human Resources Specialist described me as truly being able to understand all points-of-view.
With further professional training, I think that my natural skills could be honed to develop the Change Agent characteristics in any position I hold or even as a viable career choise in and of itself.
