Personal Development Plan
Part 1 Personal Analysis (collegiovolta, 2016)
Prior to setting goals for the short, medium, and long term of my personal development, the following analysis regarding my strengths and weaknesses was conducted to determine any external opportunities or threats I may encounter which could affect my personal development plan along the way.
I developed great confidence through my public speaking experiences During my time in a Political campaign and my volunteering at my church community.
I also developed good skills of communication through my customer service practices during my short career in the construction industry as a project coordinator.
This experience also enabled me to cope with working under pressure and perform as usual even under the circumstances of sleep deprivation and other possible challenges.
I always treat people with respect, honesty, and decency. Having the opportunity to supervise works on site and liaise with material suppliers and sub-contractors I demonstrated my ability to provide clear and practical directions and manage limited human resources to assure that task set to be achieved.

Aspects for further development I do have difficulty managing my work/life balance which sometimes results in situations where I struggle to finish my assignment, personal commitments, and other essential tasks on time.

My skills in task planning need to be improved as I still occasionally encounter situations where work activities clash with each other.
Future possible opportunities Through more academic training and mentorship that I receive from the workplace, I would have a better-structured management system to identify, analyze and resolve issues that I encounter in order to create more value for the organization or company I work for.

Threats on my impact my personal development plan Balance my working life can be a difficult challenge when the workloads in academia and employment increase at the same time, this danger can mean that I will be more exhausted after finishing a phase of tasks and become less focused and productive for the next phase of work.
Personal development in regard to the improvements in management skills for better work and academic performance would require more time to be put into relevant research and studies. This would further increase the difficulty of balancing personal life and work commitments.
Accidental injury at a construction site can still be a possibility at work that could result in the suspension of all works and studies.
