How your own values, beliefs and personal experiences might affect your working practice?
Everyone has their own values, beliefs and preferences. It is recognition of who we are and what we believe in. Your value, belief and experiences may not be the same as others. The way you work, the things you believe in and the way you think can be different from others. However, you may have come across service users and colleagues whose view or method of work you do not agree with or they never seem to understand your view. It is the crucial part of your practice how you react to the differences and affect the service you provide. Disagreement and conflict easily may arise when your personal experiences or views are not agreed by others or you are not agreed of others views. But standard of service should not be affected above all. Compromising attitude and respect to others are vital to eliminate these variations.
You may bring some personal experiences from your previous employment which may not be allowed in your present service provision. Your belief is everyone should go to church on Sunday or do their religious tasks when required. And you may find yourself disappointed when most of them do not like to do so. Also you may not be honoured according to your intellectual level as you expected which may cause change in your behaviour towards others. But always remember you are there for a purpose. And purpose is to provide service according to agreed ways and national framework notwithstanding all of the differences and disagreements. -----
