(Refer our High Quality Management Encyclopedia “Management Universe” at:
http://management-universe.blogspot.com/)

Take Ownership for Improvement with Guidelines

(You will benefit a lot by reading articles at: http://humansoftware.blogspot.com/ (Effectiveness Management: HSoftware), http://shyam-bhatawdekar.blogspot.com/ (Competency Matrix), http://knol.google.com/k/shyam-bhatawdekar/management-in-life-profession-family/6txz9nck6g3/3# (Effectiveness Management: HSoftware) and http://knol.google.com/k/shyam-bhatawdekar/competency-matrix/6txz9nck6g3/4# (Competency Matrix)

  • Become a learner
  • Take responsibility for your own learning and growth
  • Find out your own needs for your development, better work performance and overall personality growth
  • Use a range of formal and informal learning methods (it does not necessarily mean taking addition college or university degrees or joining various training courses/programs)

Learning Cycle

  1. Experience something
  2. Evaluate that experience: what happened, why did it happen, what is my learning from it?
  3. Conceptualize and conclude from experience: check validity and relevance of learning
  4. Experiment it: implement it by trying it out and plan the next steps

Skill Building Cycle

Also refer: http://shyam-bhatawdekar.blogspot.com/ (Competency Matrix) and http://knol.google.com/k/shyam-bhatawdekar/competency-matrix/6txz9nck6g3/4# (Competency Matrix)

  1. Create a desire to learn and build skill
  2. Learn the why, what and how of that skill from authentic sources
  3. Practice that skill, again and again, as per the knowledge gained on how to perform it
  4. Gain mastery over that skill and make it your habit

Types of Learning

  • Intuitive: Almost automatic learning without your being aware that it is taking place
  • Incidental: Conscious learning. Event takes place, you think about it deliberately; why, what and how did it happen?
  • Retrospective: You make a habit of thinking about events and activities, analyze about them and learn
  • Prospective or proactive: You plan your learning and learn before having an experience from an event or activity and review the learning experience afterwards (This type is highly recommended).

Main Styles of Learning

  • Activist style: Actively involving in new experiences
  • Reflector style: Thinking carefully and taking time to think things through before taking step to act further
  • Theorist style: Exploring the linkages between situations, event/activities and ideas; comfortable with concepts and theories
  • Pragmatist style: Practical. Seeing clearly the linkages between learning and the jobs they are doing

Process of Managing Self

  1. Introspection or self audit: Introspecting on where you are right now and where you wish to go; your exiting status and your ultimate goal. For this, checking up as to what you are and what are your competencies and what competencies will be required to achieve your goals. In a way, doing SWOT (strength, weakness, opportunity and strength) analysis.
  2. Goal setting/target setting: (Also refer: http://goal-target-setting.blogspot.com/ Goal/Target Setting) Set your goals/objectives/targets that you want to achieve over a defined period of time.
  3. Identification of developmental needs: Identify the additional knowledge and skills/competencies you will need to achieve your goals.
  4. Plan: Thus, identify your knowledge and skills/competencies gap and based on this construct a plan through which you will bridge that gap. Plan it over the time line. In your plan, build in review, monitoring and control mechanism.
