    Individual Feedback Report

    based on Group Work Feedback from December 2014

    March 2015

    Dear Student,

    This is your individualized feedback report, based on the Group Work Feedback collected in December

    2014. It is intended to help you confidently discuss your strengths with your potential employers,

    providing clear and compelling evidence of these. And with the same confidence, discuss your

    opportunities for further development, and the progress you have made already.

    This report will help you further recognize your strengths, identify areas where you can improve, and

    define concrete goals and actions to move forward completing or revising the plan you devised on the

    Assessment Day. It will help you make practical use of the feedback you are receiving, by helping you see

    the patterns and focus on meaningful actions to expand your skills. Here you will find:

    I. Peer Feedback: synthesis and detailed results (including comparison with Assessment Day)

    II. Acting on your feedback: making sense of your individual feedback, identifying your development

    goals, and creating / revising your action plan

    Appendix: Practical Ideas to Develop Relevant Skills

    We recommend that you use and update this action plan periodically. Furthermore, in order to grab the

    opportunities you desire and enhance your career success, we encourage you to invest your time and

    energy in your personal and professional development. Developing skills takes deliberate practice and

    persistence, and may yield extraordinary new possibilities for you.

    Our purpose is to support you in this process - please let us know if we can help. May you enjoy a great

    growth time with us at Catlica-Lisbon!

    QUALITATIVE PEER ASSESSMENT OF GROUP WORK

    Participant's name: Francisco Rocha Barros Peres CorreiaStudent Code:

    Nothing captured my eye to be honest.

    Notes

    1. Note that qualitative peer feedback is reproduced verbatim in the report: spelling and other mistakes were not corrected.

    2. Qualitative feedback may include incomplete feedback to maximize the number of students that receive feedback.

    Leadership. He could take the lead of the group more times than he does, given his knowledge about the subjects discussed.

    Should improve his leadership skills to become even better. This is based in our Methods in Finance group project.

    Francisco obviously lacks leadership skills. He is not able to assume the leadership in any project. I believe this is so because he feels very insecure, afraid that his colleagues will judge him for not being a

    good leader. I have encouraged him to step up many times, but it seems to be a barrier he faces.

    Very methodic and very effective at executing tasks. I observed this in our Methods in Finance and Financial Modeling group projects.

    Francisco is a very knowledgeable person in the field of corporate finance. I can tell his present knowledge comes partly from his great talent with numbers and his innate financial thinking. His finance skills

    were outstanding in our methods in finance papers, where he always provided the best idea, (in trying to understand how the reputation of an investment bank can affect a mergers announcement stock

    price in case of a hostile takeover between financial firms) and in our derivatives project, (in proposing a structured product on the commodity feeder cattle, targeted at fast food burger companies).

    Informed/Prepared. He always prepares himself very well to the group meeting where he presents structured and valuable insights.

    Bernardo is highly intelligent and very capable.

    Proficient in several complementary skills (e.g. Excel, Powerpoint, VBA) which add value to the work. I observed this in our Methods in Finance and Financial Modeling group projects.

    Francisco never gives up. He was always ready to help in the group projects, sacrificing his social life if necessary. Very often we ended up spending long nights at Catlica working in group projects. Francisco

    never complained and always stood up, staying the longest possible in order to perfect the project.

    Listen to others ideas and help to improve them. He was always interested in listening to everyones ideas and give valuable feedback in order to improve it

    Allied to his knowledge and skills, Bernardo is very hard working, thus making him a person that I am sure will have great success in the future.

    IV. Acting on your feedback: making sense of your individual feedback,

    identifying your development goals, and creating your action plan

    We encourage you to follow three steps to make use of your feedback: 1. Identify your key strengths and further development opportunities;

    2. Make your strengths and development opportunities clear for employers (and yourself);

    3. Draft / revise your action plan. 1. Identify your key strengths and weaknesses Go back to your scores (previous pages) and identif y the top 3 scores with a + as well the most important opportunity for improvement with a -. You may consider using percentiles to help you find a pattern (for strengths use percentiles higher than 75 and for opportunities use percentiles lower

    than 25). Then put those impressions together with the qualitative feedback (also in previous pages), and

    summarize your top strengths and areas of opportunity for further development in the following table. Examples:

    My top strengths My top opportunities for development

    Energy Creativity

    Cooperation Listening

    My summary:

    My top strengths My top opportunity for development

    1.

    2.

    3.

    2. Make your strengths and development opportunitie s clear for employers (and yourself)

    Now that you have identified common patterns we encourage you to complete the following table to

    synthesize and clarify your findings.

    Look at the qualitative peer feedback for specific behaviors both describing strengths and areas of opportunity for development. If the peer feedback that you received is not as detailed or useful as you

    might wish, consider eliciting further information from colleag ues with whom you worked during the previous academic period and also asking the colleagues with whom you are working now to give you good feedback.

    Examples:

    Energy Creativity

    I use my hands when I am talking; I smile a lot; I use different

    tones of voice

    I contribute with ideas during group discussions

    Cooperation Listening

    I help others with their work I listen to others opinions, without major interruptions

    My summary (based on the feedback I received):

    STRENGTHS evidence: How are these strengths observable?

    What do others see/hear?

    DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY evidence: What would you

    like others to see/hear by the end of the program?

    Key strength 1: Opportunity for improvement area:

    Key strength 2:

    Key strength 3:

    3. Draft / revise your action plan If you don't know where you're going, you'll probably end up somewhere else. David P. Campbell.

    Taking into consideration the present feedback and analysis, identify one specific behavior that you will work on for the next couple of months:

    Choose a behavior that will make a difference for you, for the people around you, and that you truly care about shifting.

    Choose one behavior that will make the most difference (more the same time is too difficult).

    Keep in mind that this may entail making the most of your strengths a nd/or correcting or compensating for some deficits . How can you ensure that you will actually act on your intentions?

    We encourage you to complete the following action plan.

    When considering ways to develop non-technical skills, you may wish to explore the suggestions in the

    APPENDIX: Practical Ideas to Develop Relevant Skills. Also, if you google your goal (e.g., listen to others),

    you will surely find useful ideas too (e.g, . in each meeting / conversation I will wait for others to speak first

    and I will share this plan with my colleagues / friends and ask them for feedback).

    We also encourage you to you search the internet looking for practical ideas to advance your goals (e.g.,

    how to become more punctual / how to listen better). What is important is that you identify a few

    specific and practical few steps to start practicing right away.

    My one most important development goal

    What do I want to become better at (leveraging a strength / handling a challenge)?

    What success looks like - what will I be doing (that others can see/hear)?

    more of?

    less of?

    In which contexts may I notice progress? (e.g., group work, in class, with friends, home)

    Who could I share my plan with, for support and challenge? When I will do it:

    Should you experience difficulties in understanding your feedback or in changing patterns of behavior that

    might undermine your development or cause you distress, we encourage you to reach out to The Leadership Lab Team ([email protected]).

    A note of balance

    In interpreting this feedback, we suggest you treat this feedback as one source of information among

    others. Remember that everyone has strengths and everyone can develop. Capitalizing on your strengths

    may be just as important, if not more important, than overcoming specific deficits.

    Personal and professional development takes time and effort. Do not get discouraged if you tried to

    improve in some area and the peer feedback you receive does not appear to reflect any improvement. Keep

    in mind that sustainable changes simply take continuous deliberate practice to become natural (just

    as learning to ride a bike does).

    Although we suggest you interpret the present feedback in a balanced way, we also encourage you

    not to dismiss it. Your colleagues perceptions of you are not the whole truth about you, but they can

    provide important information about how other people see you.

    We also encourage you to:

    1. Consider drawing on informal mentoring opportunities, from extended family, family friends,

    UCP alumni and other networks.

    2. Use teamwork and presentations for the MSc program to develop skills and fine tune

    behaviors.

    3. Enlist the support of colleagues for your development. Tell colleagues with whom you are

    undertaking group work about the specific behaviors you plan to increment. Ask them to give you

    feedback about these and to remind you every time you forget to do what you set out to do. Offer to

    help them in the same way. By doing this, you reveal humility and courage, and prepare yourself to

    lead and coach learning-oriented teams.

    We trust this will be a powerful tool, as you make time to

    make use of it!

  • Appendix - Practical Ideas to Develop Relevant Skills

    Joana Domingues, with Paulo N. Lopes

    When thinking about ways to develop particular skills or characteristics, consider a range of strategies,

    including engaging in activities that will take you out of your comfort zone. Here are some ideas. We

    encourage you to think creatively and explore other possibilities.
