Executive Summary

Introduction

Welcome to your personal assessment course. Throughout the units of the course we will try to work out, together with you, your key personality attributes that make you the person you are today. With those achievements we will develop a personal development plan that you can use to achieve your goals on various levels of your personality. You will establish your values and beliefs, your core skill set, your passions and will use all of them to create a possible vision of your future.

Identifying Your Core

Countless workshops, research studies and management theories discuss various behaviors of successful and unsuccessful careers. However, when leaders recognise a set of desired behavior for a career, achievement is limited due to the collective rules of life that are unique to every single individual. In order to create your successful career you must first understand the collective rules of life. Your core belief and values systems are the foundation of the rules of life. Based on grounded theories such as neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), systems thinking, and emotional intelligence, this unit helps you create a deep understanding of what you are.

Identifying Your Skill Set

Simply as yourself: “What do I know, what can I do and what am I good at?”

Your knowledge assets consist of two parts:

In addition to the knowledge assets mentioned above, you certainly have gained knowledge through experiences including formal education and/ or training. Likewise, you continue to learn through informal activities such as reading, watching TV and by observing others.

The main assets that describe what you can do are your skills and abilities. For instance, you may have a lot of knowledge in certain sports like tennis but you can’t really play tennis as a professional. To enhance your tennis skills, you need physical strength, persistent practice and the understanding of the game.

Identifying your Passions

When you wake up in the morning, do you ever feel excited just to go to work? Are you happy when you are working towards something you believe in? Do you get paid for something you love to do? You would probably think such a possibility is hard to obtain as you would perceive work to be a task that everyone has to do. Probably, like most people you may be working at a job you dislike. On a positive note, there is an alternative to this; it is called the power of passion.

You probably think this is nonsense and a waste of time. However there is some important information you should know about passion and why it’s imperative to your work. When you work at what you love to do and it brings you happiness then this is called passion.

When working with passion, you have the feeling of desire, hope, dream, or a calling – these are all words describing the kind of work that is meaningful to you. To be able to work that allows you to express yourself in an authentic way.

Barriers

With a solid understanding of who you are and where you would like to be, it is time to assess the barriers or challenges that you would have to overcome to reach the career success.

Career Strategic Plan

You will create a Self-Leadership Plan to connect your overall development with the career/job specific strategies and tactics.

Strategies are high level directions that overcome a barrier, while tactics are the actions you take to make the strategy work. Compared to roads, strategies are like the high ways that get you from one city to the next with many lanes. The tactics are the specific choice of lanes and smaller roads that get you to your destination.
