The skills pertaining to my field are literally everything except negotiation, areas i would however like to improve on are, communication, time management, knowledge of regulatory environment and continual personal development.

    In all the companies I’ve worked, one salient lesson I’ve learnt is to communicate to your workers at their level, be it their language or level of eduaction, most don’t even have a degree or ond or hnd so one must learn to not just talk but understand them as well. In the aspect of time management ofcourse timing is crucial in poultry rearing, i believe i will need to work hand in hand with my workers, have a plan of the tasks for the day and why we need to do those tasks at that specific time and what they would achieve by doing that tasks at that point in time. Knowledge of regulatory environment is crucial as well, one has to know the legal aspects of every business what to do and what not to do. Lastly, continual personal development is definitely a requirement for everyone in their different fields because of this technological age, things get outdated pretty fast, in my field there are courses, workshops, agricultural event centers this helps to sharpen one’s skills as keep you updated about the happenings on the field and ofcourse courses like this curated by DEXA is one i know will skyrocket my project management skills to the top.

    COMMUNICATION

    Communication is essential in project management for planning and executing the project for the purpose of achieving the organizational goals and objectives, managing risks and issues,and for delivering pertinent project information to the stakeholders.

    It is crucial to conduct an audit to determine the gaps in communication that need to be closed in order to prevent misunderstandings.

    Create a communication matrix that lists all the relevant communication channels, how often the information will be conveyed, and who would be the target audience.

    Establish expectations for convergence and properly apply the use of the instruments such as emails, messages, and video conferences.

    It requires that managers organize periodic meetings as well as one-on-one checkups in order to establish a platform for saying the difficult things. As for the communication, which is one of the key issues mentioned by the authors, it is needed to offer the staff to learn more about communication skills and to use other means such as Gantt chart and dashboard for their updates.

    Ongoing Planning for Feedback: Develop feedback systems, appoint a coordinating officer, use technology, document and disseminate knowledge, consider the targeted group, and review communication methods and the process constantly.

    Time management because you’ll have to work with the time frame in passing your message to individuals trying as much as possible not to exceed time limit, understanding the regulatory environment as there are rules guiding every team, for instance; a group of health educators are sent to sensitize students in a school about personal hygiene, they make plans concerning how they’ll speak, who introduced the topic, who concludes e.t.c. Also there are rules guiding health educators in a medical organisation or school
    Ethics and adherence to standard; Standards are set which must be met as health educators work towards bettering our health and lastly, continual professional development as learning is a continual process and for us health educators, there are a lot of certifications that can be obtained.
