Undergraduate Competency Development part 3

Competency and specific behavior

The competency I’m working on developing for this project is initiative. I’m also working on specific behaviors like limiting distractions, avoiding multitasking by prioritizing my work, and dividing my labor into milestones (Valamis,2022).

S.M.A.R.T goal

My smart goal for this competency development project is to improve features related to finances, especially when seeking ways to save income. Saving around 10% of the income I earn is very important. It will help me work on a budget, track my spending, and seek the best ways to save. According to Latham,2020, My goal of improving the financial aspect is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant to the development of saving, and time-bound as the share plan has a time perimeter.

Update progress

To achieve my goal, I prepared an 8-week plan. In the first week, I found the best practices for saving income from an advisor and started practicing them. In the second week, I opened a savings account and began biweekly saving some of my income. In the third week, I created a budget and began monitoring my spending by reducing my expenses. In week four, I found a SMART employee share with a four-month withdrawal time limit (China & Lu,2021. In week 5, I started saving weekly by participating in the employee share plan. In week 6, I reduced my budget expenses since I made adjustments and monitored my expenses. In week 7, I normalized the budget and expenditure, and lastly, in week 8, I completed the project by reviewing my progress. Nonetheless, I will not make any changes to my plan as it is an effective saving plan.


At this point, I'm so proud as I had the privilege of finding a financial advisor who helped me achieve my goal. I have a smart goal to help me achieve my financial savings goal (Dirani et al., 2020). However, I’m facing some challenges and one of them is temptations to use the money I saved and a need to stick to a budget. To solve this challenge, I need to monitor my spending and ensure that I stay within the budget I set for my expenses. I should also stick to the weekly plan I developed to help me develop my initiative competency. Another challenge when researching saving ways is the need for a financial advisor. Lacking a financial advisor makes me make bad decisions when developing a plan. To solve this challenge, I can look for a financial advisor who can help me develop an effective and logical savings plan. The financial advisor offered support and guidance as they have experience in saving, making a budget and solving obstacles in case they occur. In my CPL1, my strengths were being creative and formulating new ideas when making a plan. Therefore, using my mindset and grit can play an important role in solving my challenges using initiative.

Appendix 1.1

The above appendix 1.1 demonstrates how I have progressed in my development project. Through my eight-week plan, I have progressed from finding the best saving practices from an advisor to opening a saving account to begin saving. This photo illustrates that the saving plan was effective and progressed in each weekly plan. The weekly plan I made will help me save my biweekly income in the saving account that I opened. I will also develop a budget that I can follow to the end. The project progress also indicates that I have researched and found the best ways to save my income semiweekly through a financial advisor. Therefore, the weekly progress will lead to success in that I can demonstrate my comprehension of how to save without facing obstacles.

The success of my project is because my competency development project aims at developing my initiative. It starts by attempting to save a small percentage of my income biweekly in my savings account. By embracing this plan, I can effectively attain my smart goal. I will also be able to face any challenges that may occur by asking for help from financial advisors. Therefore, to complete my project, I have to complete the competency development project by reviewing my progress which shows that it goes up, as shown in the appendix 1.1.

Personal Brand

Define your Personal Brand (Research)

A personal brand is an individual's reputation and image in the public eye. It reflects who they are and what they stand for, and it is a powerful tool for networking, job searching, and reputation management (Borman-Shoap et al., 2019). A personal brand is essential because it can help individuals stand out from the crowd, build trust and credibility, and create a unique and recognizable identity. It can also establish relationships, attract opportunities, and open up new opportunities (Vițelar, 2019). My brand, The Creative, represents my passion for turning ideas into reality. It stands for my zest for life, my ability to discover beauty in everyday experiences, and my knack for creating something inspiring. It expresses my artistic side, an affinity for getting my hands dirty, and joy in sharing my masterpiece with others. It represents my ambition, creativity, and excitement for the world around me. My brand summarized in 3 words is Innovative, Artistic, and Inspiring.


My website from CLP1 communicates a lot about myself. It emphasizes my skills and education while also showing some of my personality. Through my website, I demonstrate my ambition and drive to succeed in anything I set my mind to. It also showcases my creativity and willingness to learn new things. My website shows that I am an organized and detail-oriented person, and I am passionate about my work and my academic pursuits. It also shows that I am open-minded, cheerful, and eager to take on new challenges. This Brand still represents me today. I have maintained my ambition, excellence, and positivity, all of my Brand's core values. What has changed is my level of experience, knowledge, and skills. I have gained more experience in my academic studies and the workplace and have also acquired more knowledge and skills as I continue to learn and grow. My Brand continues to evolve as I develop myself and my skill set, but I have remained true to the core values that define my Brand.

Aligning to Industry Expectations

My Brand of ambition, excellence, and positivity aligns well with the competency expectations of my discipline/industry. According to the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario, the core competencies for accounting are communication, problem-solving and decision-making, technical skills, professionalism, teamwork, business acumen, and leadership. My Brand reflects my commitment to excellence in all of these areas.

I have strong communication skills and can effectively express my ideas in written and oral form. I am a problem solver and have a knack for making decisions quickly and efficiently. I have developed various technical skills, from accounting to cooking, and I am always eager to learn more. I strive to be professional in all aspects of my work and am a team player who values collaboration. I am business-minded, and I understand the importance of understanding financial statements and industry trends. Finally, I am a leader who is passionate about helping others reach their goals and succeed. I can bring a unique contribution to the industry by leveraging my Brand and my diverse skill set to make a positive impact. I am confident I can use my knowledge and experience to become a successful accounting professional.

Your Brand and CLP Portfolio

I will use my CLP to reinforce my Brand by highlighting my academic and professional achievements and my skills and experience. I will also use my CLP to showcase my enthusiasm and passion for learning and growing. I plan to update my CLP regularly with new experiences and accomplishments. I will also be sure to include any relevant information that will help demonstrate my Brand's core values. I will also use my CLP to connect with other professionals in my field and build my network. This will help to establish my Brand further and create more opportunities. Finally, I will use my CLP to link to my website, which will help ensure that my Brand remains consistent across all of my platforms.
