A tool for self-assessment, aiming to help your ATTITUDE development as a professional. It's based upon an allegory that compares a professional to a cup of tea in terms of freshness of smelling properties (why should one hire you?) and taste (why are you the one we remember when we need to promote someone?).
Enjoy your TEA! level.

  • Hi, Pilar!

    Que felicidad es poder sentir que aún estas VIVA!!!
    (How wonderful it is to feel how ALIVE you are!!!)
    Thanks for the positive feedback, and: may I count on your help to improve this tool?
    One more thing:
    Have you noticed that I have prepared this as a workshop so that anyone who asks me can use it at their 'neighbourhood'?
    YOU, Pilar, are certainly one of those cases! So, if you do want to use it, inside your company or at a café or tea-house in Barcelona, feel FREE!
    Best regards,
    Luís

  • Hi Luis,
    Still alive in Barcelona!!
    I like very much your asessment tool!!. Just in line with Gino's observation, to make it interactive, maybe it could be useful to use an 'on-line' survey tool..
    You can also use it in coaching processes..
    Kind regards.
    Pilar.

  • Thanks for the support, Gino.
    I'm still a young user of these fantastic tools, and I don't yet know how to make it interactive...
    But, now that you've given me a tip, there's a new item in my improvement plan!
    Best regards,
    Luís

Transcript

  • 1. My TEA! level The following series of questions is meant to help you to self-assess. All we want is YOUR personal development, as a professional. In order to answer this poll you shouldn’t need more time than what it takes to take a revigorating TEA cup. The alegory we pretend to achieve is the one comparing your actual state as a Professional, seen as the product of a series of factors, to a cup of TEA. As you know, when we choose the herbs we will take we are defining a series of criteria, that, most of the time, we don’t even consider individually anymore. As a Professional we’re also a possible choice to others. You’d probably agree that our success depends upon the quality we achieve to get and our ability to show it to others (the freshness of our TEA). Congratulations for taking your time to invest in yourself, and take the ‘pain’ of self- assessment! We believe it will be worthy! Your future will surely tell it.
