Your “Initial Leadership Communication Reflection” is the first step during week one of the
online course in creating a confidential and living communication development plan that you
will progressively update throughout the course to assist your future professional, leadership
and personal development.
The starting point is to answer the 10 reflection questions below. During your course you will
update and refine your answers through further reflection, feedback, diagnostics, course
content and insight generation. The answers you provide here will be automatically
transferred by the My Development Space (MDS) system into the first full version of your
Communication Skills Agenda (CSA).
In answering the questions below, try to be succinct and clear, using words and language that
makes sense to you. There are no right or wrong answers. The most value is created for you
in this reflection, by being as open and honest with your responses as you can. You are free to
read through all the questions first before answering to get an overall sense of what you will
cover in the reflection and then answer; or just work through these questions one by one and
come back later to amend or change before you fully submit your document. Please Save
your answers along the way through in the system . The Save button is at the bottom of the
screen. Once you are satisfied with all your answers (as you can amend and re-save these as
many times as you like) only then select SUBMIT. Please note that once you Submit these
answers, your initial reflection is set, and a copy of your PDF report of these will be found in
the Documents/ and its Diagnostic tab.
