  • May be less group-think depending on peersE.g. RECMGMT-L, blogs
  • In other words, sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not so good – and sometimes it’s in the eye of the beholder.
  • Review/tie to the competencies by pointing out the arrangement of the Self-Assessment: Domain & LevelYou do not have to complete the entire Self Assessment at one time. However, we do suggest that you complete an entire domain at one time.The entire process could take anywhere from one to two hours depending on how many Domains and Levels are covered and how introspective you are. We recommend that you begin with the level that you want to be proficient at and complete that level for all domains. If the results are that you have mastered most things at that level, then move up a level and self-assess. If there are too many gaps then move down a level and reassess.
