Your development begins with self-assessment and binding objectives

As studious and dedicated project leader you always want to improve yourself and reach a steady evolution of your knowledge, your skills and your personality. I think the best way to find your own potential for improvements and to define your goals is a self-assessment. Within this article I want to give you an example of a possible self-assessment test. But of course you should adapt this test to the general conditions of your specific job and company.

 
Goal of the test

This test will help you to think about yourself and your actual market value. With a self-assessment you will see your strengths and weaknesses. Based on the results of the self-assessment you have to define your goals and derive actions to reach these goals.

Repeat this self-assessment test at regular intervals, work steadily to achieve the defined goals and you will evolve yourself and increase your market value. Therefore I recommend doing this test and the according definition of goals and actions every six months or at least every year.

 
Self-assessment

The following self-assessment test is an example. You have to adapt the test to your specific job conditions. The questions of the tests are divided into different categories. Each question is designed to see your actual status and define what you want to archive in the future.
