Question Description

We have learned in Unit Eight of MSL 601 portfolios provide an excellent tool for self-assessment and review. In my career, I am regularly required to create proposals, visual presentations and compose articles but rarely do I make the time to collect these items in a portfolio. There is a constant battle between what is imperative and what is needed, and it does not leave many opportunities to develop a portfolio.

According to our course text, "a surprisingly small percentage of people actually write down, review and or update their short or long-term goals." (Baldwin, Bommer & Rubin, 2013) The process of taking stock of my current situation would be much easier if I could efficiently analyze my efforts. With a well-developed portfolio, the ability to appraise my efforts would be encouraging and help maintain a course towards my ambitions.

To combat this issue, I am resolving to create a folder on my computer desktop where a copy of these items could be saved quickly for future reference. By scheduling a quick review of them when the folder reaches a preset capacity, I can quickly weed out what is profitable to keep and what is best to remove. This practice will also provide more opportunities for brief reviews which will lead up to a more thorough one later. A good time for this more extensive process would be at the time of my annual performance evaluation.

Another issue that arises is my self-criticism. Although my work is praised by others, too often, I find myself reducing the value of what I have written or developed as "not good enough" or "not important enough" to keep for a portfolio. This thought process is a weakness on my part and one that Baldwin, Bommer & Rubin tell me to take ownership of and acknowledge as part of me. (pg. 32) In doing so, I must commit to accepting acclaim for my work and be resolved to incorporating those items in a portfolio.

The need for maintaining a portfolio far outweighs any excuse for not keeping one. And I believe, the commitment to keeping one and utilizing it is an essential part of becoming an effective leader.
