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. Time Bound

    For a specific task to work it should be time bound. Hence i have set myself a goal and have i have to work towards it in a particular amount of time. Hence having a time frame in mind helps one to achieve a goal systematically and in an efficient way. So before starting with a task now i always question myself, "How much time should i spend on this task?". Hence it makes things easier for me.

  2. Leadership

    If i get an opportunity to lead a team i will make the most of the opportunity to gain something significant out of it and help me improve further in life because by being a leader you have to be confident of what you speak. Think before judging other peoples ideas and be more specific and hence speak wherever appropriate and to have the most interactive ideas of them all. I will be looking forward for a chance to show my leadership skills and to be able to communicate my ideas to a group of people and working together to achieve common objectives.

  3. Measurable

    This action point leads me to measure the things i do in day to day life. To be able to measure the number of articles or the number of companies i have applied to for graduate job positions. Hence measurability is of a significant and distinguished importance for myself because it get me more and more organised and efficient.

  4. Achievable

    A goal is achievable if its something that you know you can achieve hence i have set myself an achievable goal to finish my project dissertation and thesis by the end of july so that i get plenty of time to apply for graduate positions and i think it is something i can commit to and i know that i am time bound hence need to calculate the optimum amount of time i should put in to get the optimum results.

    Hi Fahad,

    I can see that you have considered my last blog comments here. What I would like you to do now is to write a reflective blog about some specific actions you have carried out since the P1 workshop. For example, in your first blog you said that you wished to improve your academic skills further. Have you attended some other workshops to help you do this? If so, reflect here on how this has been: what went well or not so well? Has it affected how you will do things in future? Also, you said you wished to plan and prioritise…what specific things has you done to carry out this action point? Which aspects of you life have been involved and what has been the effect? What opportunities have there been to self-promote? How have you felt about this?

    One key purpose of the WSPA is to encourage you to reflect on your experiences of particular actions and events and what you have learned from these. I shall look forward to reading your next blog outlining your detailed reflections on carrying out each of your action points using actual examples of things you have done.

    Best wishes
