Better self-esteem: Achieve your goals by managing both your skill and will (1 minute read)
This post Better self-esteem: Achieve your goals by managing both your skill and will continues with how you can improve your self-esteem by making changes in your life.
The last post has been about how to improve the chances of reaching your goals.
There must be a personal realization and insight about why it is necessary to change. This is important since all changes create some kind of discomfort making it easier not to change but to stay the same.
Better self-esteem: Achieve your goals by managing both your skill and will
Some useful dimensions in evaluating how you can improve to reach your goals is to think in the two dimensions skill and will.
Paul Hersey and Kenneth Blanchard have introduced a matrix based on these two dimensions that have been used in many leadership development programs.
This matrix has two axes which can be applied also to change projects:
One is the level of skill: how competent is the person in completing the specific task, hence the ability level. One can range from low ability to high ability in the different dimensions required to successfully complete the task or implement changes in behaviours.
The other axis is the level of will: How willing is the person to complete the specific task, hence the level of motivation. This is about both the confidence in own abilities and to what extent one sees oneself as responsible to complete the challenge. One can range from low motivation to high motivation.
