BSBWOR501 Manage Personal Work Priorities and Professional Development


This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to create systems and process to organise information and prioritise tasks.

It applies to individuals working in managerial positions who have excellent organisational skills. The work ethic of individuals in this role has a significant impact on the work culture and patterns of behaviour of others as managers at this level are role models in their work environment.

Role Model

For organisational success, it is important that all leaders inspire and encourage the people around them. To be a positive role model, leaders need to understand the different leadership styles that will inspire workers to be a part of the team and to actively work to improve the organisation’s work processes and procedures. To be a good role model it is important to become more aware, both of yourself and others so that you can then manage yourself and others.


Before we can understand and manage others, we must understand our own preferences and priorities, values and goals and be able to manage ourselves.
