SELF AWARENESS EXERSICE # 1.
For this exercise I chose my current organization U.P.S.
#1. My attitudes and feelings towards U.P.S are great, due to the fact that every morning we start our meetings with the phrase “safe by choice not by chance”. They care about their people and they let them know on a daily basis. I have these feelings partly because the few jobs I have carried I have never had an employer been more involved in their worker’s safety.

My manager is always asking me how things are going, and always letting me leave in time so I’m not late for my other job. This concern is reflected greatly. He does not have to let me leave early or ask how things are going. Just the mere fact that he is working with me when he does not have to is much appreciated, and more than appropriate.
#5. My supervisor always has a positive demeanor in both his private life and professional life, and comes to work everyday with a desire to accomplish the day’s task in a teamwork mindset. My boss is always smiling and making others happy. This positive outlook helps me concentrate on being the positive factor for my team’s day and helps their productivity go up. I have learned to…
