-analysis is an abbreviation for an assessment analysing process to identify and determine our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.
A personal LDP and reliable SWOT-analysis should happen hand-in-hand, because no SWOT-analysis has any real significant value without the guiding parameters of a LDP and no authentic LDP can be accountably compiled in the absence of a contextualized SWOT-analysis. This often give rise to a potential catch-22 scenario and the question remains what should be done first…. the chicken (SWOT-analysis) or the egg (LDP). However, its of little importance and merely of academic value, whether a SWOT-analysis leads to a LDP (&subsequent vision statement) or vice versa. As a matter of fact, both should be conducted simultaneously. This “parallel” approach will allow any to compile a list of verified to serve as a reliable source to ensure an accountable and responsible formulation of a subsequent CPD, PLP and SDS.
A responsible and accountable SWOT-analysis is only possible when sourcing from reliable and validated assessments (qualitative and specifically cumulative assessments) conducted. Such assessments - depending on the purpose and objective of the analysis - can be either be conducted by a or structured and conducted by the individual him/herself.
- To determine Strengths/Weaknesses (Key Focus = Archetypes) and Opportunities/Threats (Key Focus = Habitats) that would allow us to manage and actualize our personal potential more productively and limit the destructive influence or impact of blind spots, future shock and plenty of resulting traps in life by establishing a results mentality supported by accelerated learning.
- Using the information as collected and digested during an authentic SWOT-analysis, also provide us with the scope to conduct risk assessments to identify which factors, components, aspects or issues are either nourishing for or toxic to our personal growth, development, self-empowerment and psyche management strategies in a broader global context.
