Skill areas chosen for development

The two identifiable skill areas that I have chosen to develop are the areas of self-awareness and managing stress. Both these competencies were unanimously low in comparison to the other management competencies. Particularly, a specific component of managing stress that I would benefit from developing is time management, which was rated very low in the managing stress category from my associates and me. This self management skill was also missing in my Chandler Macleod Strengths Report, which only regarded my approach to work, integrity, responsibility and self confidence as self management skill strengths. An integral part of self-management, in my opinion, is time management. Developing this area specifically will encourage positive results in my ability to manage stress.
