Heres a summary of how I've been getting on with my action points
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Improve my academic skills further
