Professional Answers Preview
"I do evaluate myself personally after most calls. Generally with the more unique situations, or high stress calls. After hanging up, I will check with myself on how I feel about my performance. If there was a situation where I felt rusty or unsure, I will write it down and revisit it at the end of the day. I am really open to feedback and will often ask other dispatchers how they would have handled it differently."
Being able to look critically at your own performance is a really important skill to have. How do you keep yourself in check for strong performance? Are you open to self development and improvement? Discuss how you do this.
