How to guide by CMI

A simple approach to help you to assess your personal effectiveness and identify areas for development is offered here.

This checklist is in the form of a simple test, which allows you to assess your personal skills across a wide range of tasks and activities, including teamwork, presentations, stress management, influencing others, planning, relating to others and prioritising of objectives.

It should take no more than half an hour to complete.The test summarises a personal competency framework designed by the European Management Association, formerly CECIOS, the European Management Council, for use in profiling managers’ personal skills.* It can be used to assess your own generic management skills and, if you get others to complete it for you (boss, colleagues, staff, customers, for example,) as a feedback tool.
