Personal audit & transferable skills

Activity 1

Rate yourself (1=Not very well developed; 3=very well developed)

Skills and Abilities




 Self-confidence                     X
 Take risks                       X
 Organise and plan                      X
Manage Time                      X
 Make presentations                      X
 Act as a leader                      X
 Listen to others                      X
 Debate formally and informally                       X
 Take notes                      X

Although it is important to identify where we are now, it is not enough to stop there. We need to reflect upon how we can develop the skills where we are less confident and how we can transfer the skills in which we are confident and competent.
