Where you are now

Before you start on your programme of self-development, you need to have a clear idea of where your starting point is. The first exercise in this section is about identifying and documenting your past achievements. Then you will have the background to the picture you are building up of yourself. Of course, you will already know about it, but you can start analysing it in terms of what it says about you: the skills and knowledge demonstrated. As a bonus, you could be pleasantly surprised at how good you look on paper when you see all the data together. You will be using the information later, when you develop your personal profile.

In the previous section, you were introduced to the concept of personal competence: the fundamental skills that contribute to the process of management: how a job is done rather than what is done. These skills are transferable to any management position and are also known as personal transferable skills.

The second exercise in this section concentrates on the trans-
ferable skills and competence you have, by asking you to log
current activities, identify the skills you are using daily and map
your personal competence. In the process, you will also be able
to identify competence gaps so that you can address them in
the next section.
