Progress on the Study Programme

Considering the above professional goals and objectives, there is need to identify the skills required and to use them correctly. When I first started my career as Web Designer I had not realized that to be successful in professional life along with making a career do not only require the professional skills in the field but also need other skills such as working in team or group environment, using effective communication with colleagues and managements and work and time management as the most important key skill required to make path for career. Throughout, the professional period I had I understood the significance of these skills however it was difficult to perform all of them without any guidance.

I planned to improve my little expertise in those particular areas and started with enhancing the effective communication skills. However, enhancing the skills require the personal assessment and evaluation, I came up with the target to manage conflicts in working environment by communicating with the team members and team leader.

Moreover, time management has been the significant component to achieve the career goals as my career depends on the project management. I learned that time management through planning my tasks with the given time, with prioritizing and arranging my do’s and don’ts. The prioritization of task helped to understand the way tasks are prioritized using tags like “Important”, “Urgent” or “Neither Urgent nor Important”.

Team Leader / Manager / Operational – Workplace Performance

After assessing and evaluating the requirements and undertaking the performance my performance improved at workplace in every role. As a team coordinator I learned to manage the time for performing extra responsibility as before I was unable to manage my two working responsibilities. Now I plan my tasks and duties before I initiate any work and prioritize them accordingly. Initially I found it difficult due to inability to realize the importance of right tasks and estimating the time required to finish particular tasks. After some time, I identified the mistakes I was making in prioritizing and then did the practice for not to repeat them.

General Workplace Development

General workplace development had been the achievement of the project management by managing my time appropriately. By planning my time and tasks together I was able to perform well even in short period of time. Initially, I found it difficult practice to carry out the planning while maintaining the quality and quantity both as I found it challenging to find a way to cope up with the appropriate time and project management. With the constant practice of 3 weeks, I learned to manage the difficulty with the time management but still I have found that more practice is required to meet the career objectives.

Progress on Achieving Goals

As described above the professional objectives and goals, I needed to know the work management and it is not possible unless I learn time management. I analyzed my progress on the time management along with assessing my professional skills. At first, it was not easy to analyze my personality but then I started with personal and professional weaknesses and strengths. The understanding with personal as well as professional strengths and weaknesses assisted me to comprehend the way I could plan my task with the given time for finishing the work.
