Already completed the assessment?
Discuss your results with your manager, mentor or a trusted colleague. You may also find it helpful to ask your manager or colleagues to complete the assessment and rate you against some or all of the competencies. Coming together and comparing their ratings with your self-ratings can provide valuable insight into your level of competency.
Next, you may wish to develop a personal action plan to help you consolidate your development areas. An action plan template is available below.
