Personal and Professional Development Portfolio

Part I (500 word limit in total)
Short reflective answers

It was an airline simulation in which we had to make a group of 5 people and manage an airline. We had to make decisions together in daily operations of the airline. Overall the team got along really well. All members contributed equally. However there were few disagreements and how we resolved was by listening to each other explain why they stand with a specific decision and then later final decision is made by voting.

1. Reflect on your professional development activities during your programme of study. What do you understand by the concept of personal resilience? Give an example to evidence your own capacity for resilience using your work or personal experience. You can use the PDP template at Appendix VII to help you but you do not need to submit the PDP template as part of the portfolio (200 words).

Part II (500 word limit)

Critically reflect on your strengths and weaknesses around your self-awareness and personal resilience. Consider how these may impact your personal and professional development and your personal challenges in engaging in organisational change. (Here you might consider your learning across your programme of study, for example Managing Organisational Change, Strategic Management and options).
