What’s on for next week?

In this video, A/ProfMarcus O’Donnell outlines what you'll be covering in Week 2 of this course.
MARCUS O’DONNELL: Congratulations. You’ve completed the first week of this course on self-management for career and life success. And that’s something to note. One of the ways we can motivate ourselves to complete projects and build on them is to celebrate small achievements along the way. This week, we looked at employee and employer stories and why self-management is important in your career. Next week, we’ll look at a framework for more than just managing ourselves. How do we become self leaders? How do we become our own coach, driving ourselves forward and keeping ourselves motivated amidst life’s challenges? We’ll look at behaviours we can build into our routines that help us to become better self leaders.
We’ll look at ways we can motivate and reward ourselves. We’ll look at why we need others in our self-management journey. And we’ll look at how we can integrate self-care into our life. I hope you’ll build on what you’ve learned this week by taking the next step and join me in the next stage of this journey.
Next week, we’ll be looking more closely at some of the key skills associated with self-management, and what you can do to develop these capabilities. In this video, Marcus O’Donnell shares how we’ll help you to do this in next week’s activities.
Now that we’ve explored the relationship between self-management and employability, we’re ready to explore the unique capabilities associated with self-management and how to improve your skills.
We’ll reflect on your current self-management skills and practice how to pitch your experience and skills to employers.
We’ll also let you know how you can apply for an internationally recognised Deakin professional practice credential in self-management so you can showcase to the world the self-management skills and knowledge you’ve developed through learning, work and life experience.
Meanwhile, if you’d like to find out more about how professional practice and/or digital micro-credentials work, drop us a line.
