Additional Skills

Although I appreciate the fact that I will face a number of challenges while implementing my role and skillset into clinical practice, I believe that I will be successful in doing so because of my “grit”. The definition of grit is a firmness of mind or spirit – unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger. This term is used in positive psychology as a way to describe an individual’s passion and powerful motivation that allows him or her to achieve their respective objective. This perseverance of effort promotes the overcoming of obstacles or challenges that lie within an individual’s path to accomplishment and serves as a driving force in achievement realization. As previously mentioned, I believe that grit is my greatest personal strength.

My other strengths include optimism, curiosity, teamwork, and self-motivation. An optimistic and positive attitude not only promotes personal actions, but it also allows me to recognize achievements in others, thus inspiring fellow team members and making it easy to successfully work together as a team. My curiosity allows me to seek out new opportunities for learning, as well as provides me with the spirit to volunteer for new roles or participate in new projects. With regard to being self-motivated, once co-workers have an opportunity to get to know me, they quickly gain confidence in me and trust that the final product I deliver to them or their client will be quality and completed in a timely manner. When combined with grit, these traits allow me to better related to co-workers and clients, thus creating strong personal connections over a brief period of time.
