Transcript of Personal Business Plan - Leadership and Self-Assessment Module AMP (Susan West)

Leadership Strengths
Excellent ability to listen and to understand people's wishes, concerns, goals
Able to draw coherent and efficient rules and to help people to respect those
Hard worker, conscientious and endeavour
Ability to lead teams (until 25 people so far) and to empower members of those teams to fulfill the organization goals
Open-minded and thrilled to learn
Committed "compromiser"
Motivated, passionate, vigorous
Leadership Weaknesses
Trend of not being sharp, incisive or assertive enough : being too "kind", naive or soft with colleagues or challengers when it comes to promote myself or my work
Lacking of self-confidence
Sometimes lack of focus or lack of clarity in my personal goals: what do I really desire ?
Leadership Threats
Leadership Opportunities
The Leadership SWOT : My Personal Analysis....
Almost unlimited ambition: momentum to always go beyond and to push the boundaries
Life companion who is willing to follow me wherever I go, for whatever I choose
Participation in the AMP and other programs in the future : ability to develop knowledge and discover new ways of thinking
Misguided sensitivity: Willingness to believe and help people playing with my feelings
Misplaced perfectionism : desire to cover and do everything at best, whatever the cost
Fear of facing intrinsic obstacles: Am I intellectually and spiritually capable of going further ?
Transform being impulsive and entrepreneur by being reckless and irrational
What could be the global summary of all this ?
At 25, you are full of dreams and plans, which are difficult to write down on paper, but even more harsh to fulfill => the path will changed a lot and surely won't be easy, so keep your head up and try to move on, whatever the obstacles
Nobody is perfect, failure has to be experienced but has not to define yourself: try to assess and adapt as often as possible
Do not let your ambition drive your entire life and make you do bad choices
You produce your best work when you are passionate about what you do, and passion is linked to happiness, so try not to forget both...
Perseverance, tenacity and courage
Justice and fairness
"Seamos realistas, pidamos lo imposible"
(Che Guevara, Auguste Blanqui)

"Le sport va chercher la peur pour la dominer, la fatigue pour en triompher, la difficulté pour la vaincre. Plus vite, plus haut, plus fort"
(Pierre de Coubertin)
"Heres to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. Theyre not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you cant do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do".
Think Different - Steve Jobs

....and Through My Colleagues' (and Partner) Microscope
Actual position within the company which can push you to explore new ways and do them well
Really ambition: never stand down in front of obstacles and ability to push the boundaries
Conciliatory life partner ready to move with you
Possibility of being headhunted or to favor an application for another job with participation's in the AMP and other trainings
Trusting people playing with my feelings
Being too much influenced by people's judgment and look and forget about my own goals and values
Kevin, 25 years old
In a couple for almost 6 years
Working for a bit less than two years at ALL INVEST S.A., a private equity holding, as Executive Assistant
Co-running 4 SME's by taking care of all financial, administrative, RH and strategic aspects
Lots of autonomy and responsibilities
Ready to move forward
My "Big 5" Personality Factors
Finishing the AMP
Almost 2 years within my company
Want to take on new challenges
Vivid ambition and desire of discoveries and new learnings
3 professional choices in front of me
Go further within personal relationship ?
Today' situation
Real turning point in both professional and personal life!
Important Remark :

For the PBP development, I will only go further into the 3d alternative development, for several reasons:
The first alternative will conduct one day to the second or the third, because I believe it is not an end in itself;
The second path should be really interesting to shape, but more in terms of business development, getting idea's to market, company growth, global management, etc. Of course I need to have an extra-detailed plan to undertake this journey, with personal development, assessments and timeline, but at the end, I guess that my personal goals should be similar, whatever the path chosen;
The third choice is currently the one I am targeting, in my thoughts, but I have not decided yet, so I want to put my feelings in writing and see what it takes if I have to follow this direction.
Alternative 1
Stay in my actual company and taking on more responsibilities : play the role of a COO for all the shareholding businesses (by a 3 years commitment to the company)
Alternative 2
Alternative 3
Take the "dreamy path" : Commit to a company playing at international level
Pros Cons
Great work environment
Perfect relations with colleagues, employees and my boss
Possibility of new trainings (Solvay, Vlerick, ...)
Possibility of financing a MBA in the US
Comfortable for social life : close to my flat, my family, my sports club, my friends...
Isn't the role COO already mine today, in a way ?
What could change in my responsibilities and autonomy ?
What's next ? Would I close the "international door" by choosing this path ?
Big changes within the organization today : would it still be attractive after those ?
Pros Cons
Take the bull by the horns : Launch my own business!
Always wanted to create something on my own
Be the decision-maker and the strategy-shaper
Comfortable for social life : close to my flat, my family, my sports club, my friends...
Too young to succeed ? Lack of experience ?
Which idea to pick ?
No big multinational experience
No international experience (at the least at the beginning)
Let's not sweep it under the carpet : a small fear of failure
Pros Cons
Always wanted to work at the international level, either as "expat" or "travelling worker"
Might fulfill the desire of leading big teams, having an important position and making strong and "Kevin-driven" changes within the organization
Possibility of launching a true career path
Might be hard to have a good balance between work and family
Maybe not so comfortable work environment
My partner might no agree, depending on the proposal...
Big change for my social life if expat : new flat, no family nor friends, new sports club...
Importance of quick adaptation
Focus on goals first, not directly on environment
First phase of observing, learning and accumulating data's of all kinds
Work straight on the ideal image by showing quality work and "global relevance" : you are not there by chance, but because you own it
Am I working in a sector which pleases me : finance, fashion, sports ?

From Today to Tomorrow
Now that you have a great and highly diversified learning background, how will you use it in your daily worklife ?
Essential to maintain the use of those knowledge and alsways looking for other learning resources which could help you to "jump the curve" if needed!
Translate Theory into Practice
My Distinctive Leadership Competencies
No limit motivation
Open mind
Accelerate the preparation: narrow down the school choices, read reference publications in the fields you might be studying, look for specific trainings, gather lots of exercises for GMAT test, request for recommendations, try to think about the way of presenting yourself, search for grants, etc.
MBA Preparation and Management Position Development
Assess the opportunities of moving forward in the future : Is this really what you want ? Is it enough / too much ? Does it still fit to my needs and motivations ?
Try to be as specific as possible by defining what you need to climb up : readings, trainings, coaching sessions, soft skills development, etc.
After that, take a new challenge within the company : Possibility of leading a team or a project by taking new responsibilities
Time to develop your expertise (focus on trainings) and develop your management skills
Express your feelings about what you want to achieve within the company => if you want to lead, show that you are capable of doing so!
Keep an open eye on external competition and try hard to be the best, despite what is going on outside your "comfort bubble"
Phase 2 : Try to Put Your Label on the Organization
360° Assessment
Work on team spirit- team building to answer the following questions: how are working people together ? Are they confident about the goals you set ? Are they enoying working with you ?
