Follow–up on Getting started on skills development and the Warwick Skills Portfolio

Workshop Tutor: Amanda Randall

Heres a summary of how I've been getting on with my action points

  1. Improve my leadership skills by motivating others in a team to achieve common objectives

    The appropriate solution i believe in getting better leadership skills is having a great idea and motivating a team to bring your own idea to life. Firstly, to be a leader you should be honest with yourself and your team and make honesty and ethical behaviour a key value and then the team will follow suit. Effective communication is one of the most significant quality that distinguishes you from a normal person and a leader. To be able to clearly describe what you want to get accomplished is extremely important.

  2. Self promote myself by speaking wherever appropriate and be in charge of the situation

    One of the key things that can help you to self promote yourself is getting an effective feedback from people around you. Secondly, having the self confidence in you can help in a big way in promoting your work. Joining a conversation with keys ideas in mind and interacting and delivering your ideas can help you gain better self confidence and help you promote yourself and be more open in delivering ideas in your mind.

  3. Planning and prioritising things and thus saving much of my valuable time

    The benefits of planning and prioritising things are many. The first and most effective being more responsible about your time better and managing it efficiently.Planning defines a better course of action. A well thought out and planned day helps us to make the most of our time while doing multiple things effectively.

  4. Improve my academic skills further

    Academic Skills is all about helping ourselves become a more effective learner at University level and developing the research and study skills that will help you now and in the future. Developing good academic skills will help us achieve the academic success that reflects your full potential. Most of the skills we will develop during your studies are transferable to future careers.

    Hi Fahad,

    You have written some interesting thoughts and ideas related to your action points, but you need to re-read my comments on your first blog which ask you to set yourself some SMART actions. If you don’t set yourself SMART action points, you will not be able to reflect on specific achievements or measure how you have progressed over the weeks.

    So in your next blog, identify some specific ways that you have tried to achieve your action points and write about what went well (or not so well) and how this will affect what you will do next time. Don’t forget the reflective writing handout and guided reflection bookmark from the workshop can help you with writing down your reflections. Good luck.

    I shall look forward to reading about how you have got on.

    Best wishes
