What is your greatest weakness? What are you doing to improve it?
Pick one of your weaknesses that is not a necessity for the role. Be candid and humble in your answer recognizing that you really aren't great at something and acknowledging your need to improve. Be sure you have an action plan in place for improving on this weakness too. Perhaps you are watching TED Talks about the weakness, reading the latest-and-greatest book on the subject, or maybe you are taking a seminar at a nearby community center in the near future. We are all human and all have weaknesses, so don't be afraid to share yours!

What is your greatest weakness? What are you doing to improve it?
My greatest wekness is that im very hard on myself. I try to do the best and be the best and I sometimes upset myself or sress myself out if I feel im not bringing enough to the table. I am trying to stop thinking about it so much because with my eork experience if I was that bad or a horrible worker I would have been reprimanded by now.
My greatest weaknest is that I am high critical of my self. I strive for perfection. I dedicate time to my projects and sometimes I need to allocate to others.
Trying to multi-task. I just handle one thing at a time to produce best results.
Jump in and do it myself - learning to delegate and not micromanage.
My greatest weakness is not being able to accept defeat. I'Mm learning the art of acceptance and redirection.
I would say getting very ambitious and attempting to complete a bunch of tasks at once. I need to pace myself and complete one task at a time. I'll start several and then stress myself.
