PERSONAL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PLAN (PLDP)-ACTION PLAN (AP) TEMPLATE
Name: _____________________________________ Student #:__________________________
Instructor: __________________________________ Date: ______________________________
PLDP DESCRIPTION:
A PLDP is done to cause deep reflection, writing, and re-evaluation. There are very few times in our busy lives when we take the opportunity to stop what we are doing to truly reflect. Not only does reflection increase our awareness of our personal strengths, weaknesses, values, preferences, and styles but it helps us understand how our behaviors, actions and decisions impact our relationships with others. This is all a part of Adult Learning and our thirst to continually learn about ourselves and how we affect those around us.
REQUIREMENTS:
· Each module entry must follow this format and the different tables should be filled in for each module. Note: Only the white space areas will need to be filled in on this template.
· You must upload this document each time a module PLDP is due, your final product will also have your completed Action Plan filled in.
· Refer to the student guides located under each Module to help you complete each PLDP entry.
· For each part where you will either answer a question or discuss your strengths or areas of improvement, unless otherwise specified a minimum of 100 words and a maximum of 350 words are required.
MODULE 2 “Self Awareness”
REFLECTION: For this module, 100 to 350 words are required for each lesson concept (e.g. 100-350 words for each assessment of Personal Profile System (PPS), Team Dynamics (TD), Adaption-Innovation (A-I) Theory, etc…under Part I & Part II).
Take a few moments to think about your experiences in the Self Awareness module and review your assessments. Self-awareness is important because when SELs have a better understanding of themselves, they are effective at managing and leading through change. As you complete the PLDP entry for this module, focus on building on your areas of strength as well as identify areas where you would like to make improvements.
PART I: STRENGTHS: Think about the things you do well in each of the below areas. If you have a low opinion of yourself, you may struggle with these at first, but we all have areas in each category that contribute to organizational and personal value. For those individuals that are very confident, it may be hard to just choose one, but there are things that will be your strongest asset in each assessed area. Even the most humble of people will understand their strengths and utilize them for everyone’s advantage.
Review the Self-Awareness Module core lessons (PPS, Team Dynamics (TD), A-I Theory, Full Range Leadership (FRL), and Critical Thinking) and your assessment instruments, then focus on one trait that you do well in each of the below lessons and explain WHY each item is strong:
PPS:
TD:
A-I:
FRL:
Critical Thinking:
PART II: AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: There is difficulty to see in yourself what others may see so easily. This is what makes the path to self-awareness so challenging. Acknowledging the need to become better at anything is only the beginning, and it's often the most difficult step in the whole process. In many cases, individuals successfully come to the realization that something's not working, but only when they truly reflect.
Review the Self-Awareness Module core lessons (PPS, Team Dynamics, A-I, FRL, and Critical Thinking) and your assessment instruments, then focus on one trait that you need to improve upon in each of the below lessons and explain WHY each item needs improvement:
PPS:
TD:
A-I:
FRL:
Critical Thinking:

ACTION PLAN
ACTION PLAN DESCRIPTION:
Most likely, your strengths are what got you to this point in your career. As your role in your organization changes, you must be careful not to overplay a former strength to the point that it actually becomes a weakness. For example, let's say you're great with detail (PPS: C) and have done good things for your organization as an individual contributor and get rewarded with a management role. Continuing to delve too much in the details once you're responsible for projects and people could cause you to lose ground with 1) your subordinates, who will feel unnecessary; and 2) your superiors, who may rethink your readiness for managerial responsibility. Think about this as you reflect on your PLDP entries and complete your Action Plan.
REQUIREMENTS:
· The Action Plan consists of six parts that will be graded according to the Rubric available in Blackboard under Phase III: CAPSTONE.
· While completing the plan, where appropriate, make sure to use all applicable elements of SMART:
Specific – What, when, why and how
Measurable – How are you going to know if you’ve met your goal?
Attainable – Can you do it?
Realistic – Is your plan really going to work?
Timely – How long is it going to take you?
· Turn in this entire document per the schedule
· Each section (Part I, Part II etc. will be a minimum of 100 words, maximum of 350 words)
ACTION PLAN
PART I: GOALS
Based on all of your PLDP entries, choose three areas that you intend to work on that will provide the most leadership growth and write specific goals:
PART II: ACTION/STEPS TO MEET GOALS
Identify what you need to stop doing, start doing and keep doing. These short-term actions will contribute directly to your long-term goals. What potential barriers can I identify which might hinder me in pursuing my goals? How can I overcome these barriers? These barriers may be internal barriers (within you) or external barriers (other people, environment, etc.). What strengths do I have that will help me achieve my goals?
PART III: RESOURCES/SUPPORT
How will I draw on my supervisor, mentor, peers and others to track my progress, gather advice and feedback and support my growth? Who will I ask to support me? Who do I know who already possesses the skill set I want to build? With whom will I share my development plan? Why?
PART IV: ACCOUNTABILITY
When will I begin taking action to meet my goals? When do I expect to see significant progress? (Milestone commitments) When will I review my plan to check my progress?
PART V: ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
How will my goal accomplishment impact me personally and professionally? How will my organization benefit from the changes/improvements I have identified? How will I celebrate when I meet my goals?
PART VI: LEADERSHIP VISION STATEMENT
Build a vision statement that is a condensed version of your Action Plan (i.e. what will you tell people in one sentence that describes where you want to be as a leader?) Note: there is no minimum/maximum word count requirement here, but brevity should be the focus. Your vision statement should be easy to understand and/or explain.
