Essay: How my subordinate perceives me?
I have been working with a subordinate for a couple of years and would like to use this opportunity share how he perceives me. I think that my subordinate considers me an open minded and easy going person, honest and respectful. He would mention that in the beginning of his assignment I set a clear strategic direction in which he should be developing both his hard and soft skills. Furthermore he would recall me being quite open in giving constructive and actionable feedback during our quarterly performance review meetings. My subordinate would appreciate coaching, which helped him to grasp fundamental skills needed for his role, my patience in explaining complex matters and true satisfaction when I saw him progressing. He would describe me as a hard worker who tries to solve the problem himself if time allows instead of delegating it directly to him. My subordinate would appreciate high degree of freedom in his projects. He asked me for an opportunity to have increased freedom and responsibility and I have supported his intention. He would say that I am kind hearted and friendly and mention that I am setting clear focus for his work thus avoiding additional pressure coming from secondary projects. My subordinate would receive positive feedback when I see that he exceeds my expectations by completing a project that requires him to get out of his zone of comfort. Also I find it fruitful to cheer him upon flawless completion of regular duties. At the same time when he is underperforming he will see me speaking in a more stern voice outlining flaws of his task and directions to improve. My management style is adaptive therefore my subordinate will see me soft or harsh depending on his attitude and performance. We make good team and he truly respects me for my skills, knowledge and respectful attitude. We form a symbiosis: I am energizing and leading him to achieving his professional goals and he frees up my time to pursue strategic business targets.

Note: this reads more like a collection of sentences mostly starting with "My subordinate" than an actual essay.

Hi, thank you for the comment.

I tried to look back into past, describe working situations and based on that share how my subordinate may perceive me.

What do you mean by collection of sentences and what is the difference vs. an essay?
LavrbalavrWhat do you mean by collection of sentences and what is the difference vs. an essay?
I mean you should develop some of the points you've mentioned. organize your writing into one or two paragraphs. Each paragraph should start with an appropriate (broad) topic sentence. You could then include some of the points you've listed above in supporting/example sentences within those paragraphs..
Thanks a lot for your comments, I have completely reworked the essay.
The topic is the same - how would your subordinate perceived you.
Thank you for your comments

It has been two years that we have been working together with my subordinate and would like to use this opportunity share to share my thoughts on how he may describe me as a person. He is coming from XXX which means that his attitudes, value and social code is different to what we are used to in Europe.
When we first met I think that he expected me to be similar to managers in his homeland: strict, bossy and harsh. He thought that I was self-confident, arrogant and not listening. Over the time that we worked together we got to know each other better and his perception has changed.
In personal life I am a kind-hearted person and have been very kind with him as well. On many occasions when he needed to take a day off with a short notice or to come later to the office, I supported him on a condition that he delivers his job on time.
Amongst my strength he would mention openness to other opinions. I believe that truth is born in debate and foster open communication. I have no problem changing my position if I hear a convincing argumentation that persuades me. Over the years I have learned that in order to be respectful I have to start respecting others disregarding their social status or cultural values.
One of my weaknesses is lack of trust and desire to ensure that each project is completed perfectly. This leads to lack of delegation because am trying to accomplish as much as I can myself and often get overloaded. Some people find me cold, closed and not interested in happenings in their personal lives. We spend a lot of time together at work and I think I should be paying more attention to colleagues and be more involved into activities outside working hours.
Over the time I have managed to establish good working and personal relationships with my subordinate by being trustworthy, respectful, honest and caring.
