Describe ways to ensure that your personal attitudes or belief do not obstruct the quality of your work I have to ensure that I understand and respect all the policies and procedures because that is going to help me in my personal attitude or belief and because of that is not going to obstruct the quality of my work. For example in the pre-school where I am placed as a student I work with many children’s and I have to ensure that I don’t discriminate, I respect them, I treat all the children equally.
I need to have positive attitudes in the goal I seek and my goal is working with children’s. If you want to be accepted even more quickly by colleague and the manager and others you can only ask for example “Is there anything I can do to help? ” When was the finish of the year in the pre-school were I am in placement I ask the manager if they need me to come and help them with the cleaning so the children can start a new school year with everything clean and they were amazed first because I ask and the second because I want to do it even if I didn’t have to do it because I am a volunteer. The children’s can fee for example you are upset and that it means you do not have positive attitudes.
Wherever I work I don’t show my personal issues because children can feel it and also my colleagues and people around me. For this reason it is best to avoid and to behave normally as if nothing happened. One of the ways I am using my personal attitudes is for example: When I am playing or choosing a game I include boys and girls. Some children’s are intimidate so I am trying to persuade them to join us by telling them that they can do it as well like everyone else but if I can’t manage I’m using one at one method to make them understand better. Life has a funny way of responding to those efforts if you have a positive friendliness because of that you can become a role-model.
