Are you Work Ready?

The checklist looks at your current work readiness.   It will help you to identify areas that need the most development or require your next action.  

 

For each question mark yourself out of 0 (no confidence/competence) - 10 (totally confidence/competent).   Then ask someone who knows you well to mark what they think your confidence and competence is.  Is it the same? Where are the work-on areas? 

 

Another option is this template which allows you a graphical picture of your work readiness.  Contact us if you need help.
