Before selecting specific competencies to develop, it may be helpful for you to spend some time thinking about your work life, personal life, and goals for the future. Your analysis should include an honest self-assessment of the aspects of your job that you find satisfying and those that are less satisfying, plus an assessment of your strengths and development needs. The kit contains these forms to help you with this self-assessment.
