Personal Development Plan

1. Initial self-assessment and reflection

On the reflection of the last year long-term plan; I have been improving in different skills. Since I have been studying in PSB Academy for more than 2 years, thus my long-term goal was to get good grades in my studies. Within these two years, I had finished Certificate in Business Administrations (CBA) and Diploma in Business Administration (DBA). Both of the courses are given by PSB Academy. Currently, I m continuing my further studies in Business Management conferred by Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). As I m the student, getting good grades became the first long-term goal.

The second long-term goal was I would like to improve my communications skills. As I m an international student, I came to abroad not only to study but also to improve myself in every perspective.

Wheelen & J. David Hunger, Addison Wesley, 1998).

Strength and Weakness

I know how to approach and talk to a person in any situations. My friends accept that I am flexible, energetic and also I can actively involve in teamwork. Furthermore, I can take the responsibility and put all my effort to accomplish any tasks. Moreover, I am a people oriented person. In my opinion, people-oriented is my strongest advantage among my strength. I can easily observe others people behavior and understand their emotions. Besides, I found that I m really sensitive to others people emotions. However, this can become my strength and weakness at the same...
