Chapter 6. Deciding What to Pack > Your Personal Inventory

Your Personal Inventory

Your personal inventory is what you bring to the group. Of course, every other group member has a personal inventory, too. Often members arrive thinking that their inventory is more valuable than anyone else’s. The types of things that you have in your personal inventory, to one degree or another, are:

  • COMMUNICATION SKILLS—The ability to share information clearly and accurately and listen to understand another point of view.

  • PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS—The ability to break down a problem or issue into its components and offer creative and timely solutions to resolve it.

  • EDUCATION—Knowledge gained through formal classroom time or book study.

  • EXPERIENCE—Knowledge gained through hands-on work.

  • POWER BASE—Strength of position earned by providing recognized leadership, which can be used to gain support.

  • PEOPLE SKILLS—Ability to work effectively with diverse groups of people.

  • CONFLICT-MANAGEMENT SKILLS—Ability to draw on skills that can aid you and others to manage and resolve areas of disagreement.
