UNDERSTANDING YOUR RADIAL DIARAM

Your radial diagram has provided you with a profile of the skills you already use in your current job. It enables you to see at a glance the profile of Spotlight skills you already use in your present job, and also the skills you would like to develop in this job in future - your training and development goals in your current job. 

In addition your Spotlight diagram contains two lists. 

Understanding your two lists

Your workbook has also generated two other lists of skills. These are the skills where you have chosen options F (skills you already have but do not need in your current job) and option G (Spotlight skills you would like to learn in a future position). 

List 1: Skills gained from past work experience - option F

These are Spotlight skills gained from past work experience (paid and unpaid) which you possess but  do not usually use in your present job. 

These skills might be useful in another position or role, so you want to add some of the skills to your CV.You may also have other relevant skills not on this list. If so, add them to the list, and if appropriate, add them to your CV.

 

List 2: Skills to develop in the longer term - option G

They could be vital in your future career and/or your personal development.

It may be that most of these will be at levels 4 and 5. If so, as you become more proficient in your job and learn to solve problems the next logical steps for you will be sharing your knowledge with others, perhaps as a team leader, and in time creating new and improved systems based on your experience of what works.

Unless you work in a very small organisation and have a great deal of autonomy it is likely that you will have to work in more senior positions to acquire these Spotlight skills.

Or it could be that the future development goals you choose are concentrated in a particular area, such as connecting across cultures.
