Usually an individual through its life period covers two life one is individual and other is specialized. It becomes very significant to sense of balance both these life sections. As per my anxiety I trust that only ethical belief can maintain both these section. I have constantly kept ethics as my code which continuously provisions me power and boldness towards life (Larkin, 2010).

The name of our team will be “Hercules” which is the symbol of power and strength. In our team the standard which every member will follow will be the quality of work, working with integrity and dignity. One of the most important aspect on which every member will be judged will be the strict follow of working ethics in which no member will be discriminated on the basis of their belongings as well as their religion believes, each member will be given equal opportunity to express his/her opinion along with an individual performance appraisal system which will be unbiased with each members of the team (Sarkis, Meade and Presley, 2012). Our team will follow the SOP which the team has decides for every task which will go through number of processes to achieve the final outcome. Team has decided that in addition to SOP the team will also use Mind mapping tool to address the task properly The team has fixed an action plan according to which if the things will not go as per the standards then in this case the team will evaluate the task and analyse where things have gone wrong and will take action accordingly like managing context, reshape working methods and follow a clear communication system in which a proper monitoring process will be carried out to ensure that the message intensity and its reach at every team member will be at par (Williams, 2009).

Focus on the reasons why ethical awareness is important in your industry and present examples where it could affect professional conduct. Reflect on own ethical awareness you have developed and how you can use it in a professional environment in your industry.

As this world is working in a dynamic business environment in which ones weakness can become others opportunity. Hence it becomes very important from individual point of view that an individual should possess one such unique competency which can be proven as the one of the strongest pillar of the team at the time of difficulty (Banks, 2013). As per my anxiety I trust that only ethical belief can maintain both these section. I have constantly kept ethics as my code which continuously provisions me power and boldness towards life. I have faith that each individual which has taken birth in this world merits same esteem and fairness for any aspect. I have faith that humanity is one of the main gift that god has given to every person and it is that entity which makes us dissimilar from rest of all kinds.

Discuss the role of ethics in the industry and how it affects professional conduct

I also learnt significance of administration in lashing ethics in the corporate organization. Leadership as we all know is the applied skill surrounding the ability of the person to lead, achieve, inspire, impact and inspire people to attain the administrative goals and purposes (Hajli and Lin, 2016). Ethics play a very significant role in pouring leadership, an ethical leader will always safeguard that ethics are skilful in the organization and no damage is imposed upon the client, staffs and other stakeholders. I also have faith that this universe is an eco-system in which whatever belongings we do gets mirrored in the whole universe and one of the significant ethical code for me is think better. In this believe if we take this universe as a sign of loveliness and constantly in a try to spread love and carefulness for the other, same caring of action will be mirrored from the side of the universe (Jin and Drozdenko, 2010). This universe is all about provided and get back.

Portfolio Evidence 3 Project Management [weeks 5-8]

This task consists of two parts:

With your team use an Excel spreadsheet to create a Gantt chart for the Professional Skills presentation and paste it in the space provided. In your Gantt Chart:

  • detail the steps you will take to prepare your Professional Skills presentation/video in week 9;
  • identify the task(s) for each group member and decide how you will know the task has been completed (i.e. will they email to the group/will someone have to check progress?);
  • consider the stages and deadlines that have to be met by your team in order to successfully deliver the presentation;                

Resource investigator will work up to three weeks in which the member will try to collect as much data related to the professional skills which are required to convert in to practical aspects. From week third the Plant will create a unique idea from the gathered resources and try to give it a proper shape with the help of implementer whose work will start from week five to week seven to set up the role and regulation for the team related to the task and ensures that the team must follow the ethics set up by the combined agreement of all team members (Geraldi and Lechter, 2012). From week six to week seven with the continuous touch with the implementer the coordinator will allocate the available resources connected to the responsible person. The coordinator also focuses on the activities related to the chosen idea for presentation from the collected data. Finally the role of completer finisher will come in to play which will analyse the whole steps and try to find out the possible errors in the plan and accordingly prepare an action plan which will take care of the task if it will go on the wrong direction as compared to the set up path (Gruenther et al, 2009).

Discussion

You have created the Gantt Chart with the purpose of planning and managing the Professional Skills presentation preparation and delivery. In this evaluation:

  • explain the rationale for the plan you have created with your team and the expected progress of your team;
  • recognise where you may need to monitor your team’s progress closely and potentially allocate more time;
  • explain and analyse your contingency plan for the presentation taking into account specific strengths and skills of the various team members;
  • discuss the role of planning and managing the project, specifically in terms of the need to meet the deadlines and moving the project forward considering skills, strengths and weaknesses of team members

Team project is actually the repetition of introducing, preparation, performing, regulatory and final the effort of a team to attain particular goals and meet particular achievement standards at the particular time. The chief challenge of our team project is to attain all of the plan objectives within the specified controls. Our team will plays most significant role in completing the objective of this project. To understand any project, the team should be aware of current business market (Thomas and Mengel, 2008). The team should have clear understanding of the skills which is needed for the completion of this project. For having a look on the demanding skills for the market the team can make use of technology which will facilitate the team to develop the knowledge of organization thinking process, its working and how they are expecting appreciation from this specific project. As a team member I can make use of my strengths like I am a strong believer of the saying “ Network is the net worth” , hence I focus on building a network full of people with high relevancy and strong content which would be of help to me in my professional development and learning (Demir and Kocaba?, 2010). Through these channels, I am capable to get in touch with people who would help me in my professional development, learning and growth. I believe that this systematic approach, used in creating goals and the training or the skill gap analysis will help me in being an asset to the organization. The similar process will be utilized in our team, where goals will create for the team and small training will be provided to achieve those goals. Hence, this exercise will help by creating a foundation over which we can easy lay the pillars of our professional and career development (Pant and Baroudi, 2008).

Create a Gantt chart for the Professional Skills presentation

In our team work project is on tightened timelines as they have deadlines which have to be adhered to, hence in such a case, it becomes pertinent for us to have a good time management skills so that I am able to manage the time available at hand. My one of the weakness of individualism during academic can stop my progress because it sometimes restricts me within the boundary because of which I will not be able to consider more experience as compared to me. My weakness will be covered by my other team members thought their different skills and strengths.

Section 2: Written Tasks

Professional Skills in Action and Your Professional Skills (1,600 words)

There are two written tasks for you to complete:

1.Task 1 – Professional Skills In Action (800 words)

2.Task 2 – Your Professional Skills (800 words)

In the course of this module you were placed in groups of 4-6 and tasked with creating and delivering a presentation. In your evaluation discuss what you would consider to be effective and what areas needed further development in terms of building this team and completing the project. Focus on the roles various team members played and explain how flexibility and creativity were encouraged. Describe how effective communication was achieved and its effect on team building. Review the decision-making processes that took place and recognise where flexibility, creativity and acting on initiative were effective. Provide the rationale for the contingency plans in action and link it to the team’s strengths and weaknesses.

You should link this to your knowledge of professional skills relevant to your industry. 

In your discussion you must consider the following: 

  • Teamwork, team roles and team forming
  • Interpersonal skills / effective communication
  • Resolving conflicts / intercultural awareness 
  • Ethics / professional conduct
  • Leadership skills
  • Other relevant professional skills

Write in full sentences and paragraphs and ensure you include an appropriate number of references for this level. You must refer to the reading list and ensure you have evidence for theory and ideas around professional skills. Refer to the marking criteria about how reading and research affects your grade. 

As we know that an effective team is a team in which all the members of the team are open to their strength and weakness with each other as well as they have a strong sense of mutual trust as well as understanding. They also share the supportive nature among each members of the team. If a particular group lacks all these necessary characteristics, then the overall performance of the team will get affected (Suddaby and Viale, 2011). As, we know that a team is a combination of different individual with different thinking, reacting and understanding. Because of these differences all the members will not have same opinion about a particular thing. Here, the role of effective team comes in to play. As per given team, we also have a different set of personalities and strength. According to me all these set of different combination will surely provide us an upper hand as compared to others because we do not want those members in our team which will always node their head in yes and will not oppose in any situation (Harris and Jones, 2010). So, having the team combination of creative or innovative thinking, daring, insightful, wide variety of interest, resourceful, energetic, planner and ambitious .I am sure that we are fully capable of handling any kind of task. Building an effective team in not an easy task, it requires lot of efforts and dedication to combine the different thinking, style of taking decision and understanding in to align format (Wopereis, Sloep and Poortman, 2010).

Reflect on own ethical awareness and its application in a professional environment

People behave differently when they work in a team or group in respect to their role and responsibility. Group dynamics often tells about impact on team members and also on whole team. The overall dynamic of team remained positive and each member of the team has completed their responsibility according to their role. I understand that if we have to work in a team, first of all we have to develop mutual understanding along with trust within the members of the team and also we have to develop such a working environment in which each member will feel that the activity in not only important to team only but it is also important on the individual level. So, for the success of this team I have to increase my inter-personal skills along with information gathering skill (Moylan, 2008).

As, I have mentioned that I have to improve my inter-personal skill along with information gathering skill. For this I can take participation in activities which can help me in improving the same so that I can be play a very important position in the team when required.

Initially, I was aware of some of my strengths and some of my weakness like panic. However, the realization came into reality when I faced some situation in my projects where I have to work as a single individual and have to take personal responsibility. But after this self-awareness test picture got cleared about my real strengths. One of the talent which actually resonated with me was restorative after futuristic. Whenever faculty asks for voluntary participation, I am the first person who also takes imitative for any program due to my confidence but reason of this confidence was not known to me, which was cleared by this test that I have approach of problem solver and looks for challenging job (Busse, Aboneh and Tefera, 2014). As one of my strength is strategic at the same time, I have one weakness that is panic in the situations when the scenarios are sudden. In under pressure, there are possibilities that my work will get hampered by losing my ability to take decisions which will ultimately hamper my productivity to some certain extent. Nevertheless, one of my talents, which are a good planner, will help me to overcome these situations. I only thing is that I have to put my extra effort instead of coming with one plan I have to keep one extra plan so that I can use this plan in case of sudden change and this plan can only be created through regular practice (Marie, 2015).

Every individual is different, so as I. As I have spent good amount of time in self-analysis and have gone through various situation in which I was able to understand, interpret and learned a lot of thing (Tschannen-Moran and McMaster, 2009). By going through all these experience I am able to understand that I have strong control over myself motivation level as compared to other team members. I have observed many times that I am able to perceive things exactly as compared to other students. Earlier I was thing that this is because of my interest in studied and learning that I gained from them by repeatedly studying but I was wrong, this happens because of psychological formation which is a part of level of analysis. In this level an individual is able to develop qualities like innovative thinking, memorizing thing for long time along with problem solving skills.

In the course of this module you have been placed in groups of 4-6 and tasked with creating and delivering a presentation. In this task choose ONE from the following two options:

1.Select a critical moment in the course of Professional Skills module and using Kolb’s (1984) reflective cycle, discuss your evaluation of the situation and how you deepened your understanding of your own professional skills in the process.

2.Evaluate your contribution to the team considering your individual strengths and the role you played. In your discussion you must consider the following: 

  • Decision-making
  • Leadership skills
  • Acting on initiative
  • Flexibility
  • Team-building

Your writing should be underpinned by reflection on what you have learned about yourself from the portfolio tasks as well as in the course of this module.  

Write in full sentences and paragraphs and ensure you include an appropriate number of references for this level. You must refer to the reading list and ensure you have evidence for theory and ideas around professional skills. Refer to the marking criteria about how reading and research affects your grade. 

Kolb’s reflective model is mentioned to as “empirical learning”. The foundation for this model is our own understanding, which is then studied, investigated and calculated methodically in four stages. Once this procedure has been experienced completely, the new involvements will form the preliminary point for other cycle.

Concrete experience:-

In this I will deliberately and substantially understanding a condition, which makes me comprehend that I want to replicate methodically in command to pick up something novel or progress on my current skill and repetition. At this step I will make a footnote of the precise condition and just label what I understand, how I sense and what I reflect.

Reflective observation:-

Having engraved downcast the explanation of the understanding, it is now time to replicate more intensely on what has occurred in that circumstances. The queries I want to ask myself are: what functioned? What miscarried? Why did the circumstances rise? Why did other team member and I perform the mode we did?

The directorial query for this step clues on from the queries in the reflective thought step: what might I have prepared well or inversely? How can I progress? Originally, I attempt to find dissimilar means for dealing with the circumstances and think up approaches for when I will face a similar condition again. Also, this is the step where I will consult my team members and notify in command to get an enhanced understanding and additional ideas (Kolb and Kolb, 2009).

In this step I will now working the newly learned theoretic understanding. I will take my own replications and opinions about enhancements as well as the philosophies spinal into my exercise and try out the novel approaches. Some of them will clearly function; others won’t, so this is then automatically the foundation for the innovative cycle. As the familiarities inside the lively investigation step become the novel “concrete experiences” (Abdulwahed and Nagy, 2009).

Specialized skill always helps an individual to grow and give a person a competitive edge over others. The Specialized skills of an individual vary from each other, based on the personality a person has. One of my specialized skills is Team working skills. Team working- Team work results in better results in comparison to an individual working alone. It also leads to creation of positive synergies in the work environment and teams, which lead to motivation and enhanced productivity of the whole team. I have always been a team player, and strive to contribute towards the goals of the organization or the group. Team work by all standards is one of the most sought after skill a team head looks into the team members (Lim, Anderson and McGrath, 2012). A good team member is never self-centred and thinks of the goals of the team, before anything else. A good team member I am dedicated towards my team and always aspire to give my best for the benefit of the team. Thus, seeing the high relevancy of the skill, and the need of the hour, Team work is very essential skill which all the stakeholders of the organization value.

I have been always focused and pay attention to even the smallest of the details provided by my team members and combined team. These two skills are extremely important as they provide a foundation for team work excellence (Desimone, 2011). I am not being a pompous individual here, but I would like to say that my perception of myself, which was backed by findings and the same, was resonated by the feedback from other team members. This makes me delighted that I am on the same page as team members perceive me as; it also gives me motivation and confidence to excel in my life. The world has truly become global, thanks to globalization and proliferation of Internet (Husain, 2010). Good listening skills is a sub skill which comes along with being focussed, my listening skills would benefit me in understanding the concern, query or grievance of the customers. And being attentive will further help in providing the right solution to my team.

Team work skills as mentioned are the skills which are relevant in the present times, these skills help an individual to embark on the journey of success. Apart from focus and attention, I believe my second Team work skill is Negotiation. Negotiation-Negotiation in the simplest of terms can be understood as the method by which people settle their disputes. Dispute in the team arise due to various factors which are internal and external to the team. I am of the opinion that I am a good negotiator as I always focus on the technique of Integrative negotiation which has benefitted me immensely in the past and present. I am certain that as the business world is changing, there will definitely be a need for better negotiators in the world. Negotiation is the method by which the parties involved in negotiation come to a win-win situation while avoiding dispute and arguments (Supiano and Berry, 2013).
