PERSONAL SWOT ANALYSIS
This activity has been designed for team leaders, supervisors, managers and leaders. It can be used during training, management team meetings or individual one-to-ones. It can serve as an 'inventory' of organisational capability and as the basis of discussions around improving leadership skills.
When conducting your SWOT analysis be very thorough and make it evidence based. Also identify those areas of information that are lacking and where you might find such information.
Here are some possible topic areas for you to consider and draw on in developing your SWOT.
Business and Organisational Issues
- What are the key issues?
- What are the trends and results in these key areas?
- What is happening in the market?
- How much influence does this group have? How would you define or recognise influence?
- What are the critical success factors?
- Where are the areas for improvement?
- How effective is your management? How do you make this assessment?
- What are the key skills of management and how well do you measure up?
- Are there areas where key personnel in your team need to develop?
- How effective is your communication and where are the failure points if any?
- How would you measure communication effectiveness?
- What would be different if communication were better?
- How well do you manage change?
- What approaches and strategies are used for managing change?

- What would be the most useful areas for you to develop in terms of culture?
