Self-assessment requires a realistic image of your performance compared to the standard set by the other members of the group.  In real life terms, rank is often dependent on finanical gains, plus the measure of potential earnings combined with a degree of human satisfaction.  In this case the future earnings are determined by the level of learning, performance and social interactions during projects.

When we consider our world from the viewpoint of  becoming an expert in field of  organizational behavior,

I understand that everything is a organization and nothing is an organization. 
I understand that the self-interests and need for self-preservation are primary motives that underline individual , group or an organizations behavior. 
I understand that the self is a universal term across the set of all potential forms of organizational perspective. 

The inital reaction of one not well versed in organizational behavior, is from a limited viewpoint.  The structures and stragegies we know have been shaped by our past training.  The reality is to assess why we are here, and what we need to experience to get our desires fulfilled.  Unconsciously we are continually assessing our situation, setting goals and adjusting behaviors in accordance with the fundamental desire succeed.

The focus of the self-assessment has to be based on the personal and professional values assigned. The questions range from:  Is your goal focused on leadership?  Is your goal to foster collaboration?  Is your goal to rank yourself in comparison to other members of a class or organization?  Are you working against university standards?   Are you a learner or are do you consider yourself to be an expert?
Business management requires we adapt the values of the organization.  In more general terms, leadership skills begin with learning about our potential to adapt to the values by framing to the 4Es.  The 4Es are envision, enable, empower, and energize.    The examination of the real self in relationship to the ideal self is an assessment that requires the comparison between the real goals and the ideal goals to achieve perform effectively. The motives and abilities are examined and in some instances we consider our sense of self-responsibility and desire to gain power and influence in a community. 
During a self- assessment, our methods must adjust the gap between our ideal vision and the real vision of the self.  The goal is to ENVISION the future, which implies we set strategies that lead us to meet the goals within a realistic time frame.  Small steps help us work through tough situations, enable change in personal style and bring us in harmony with the values.   Set the goal to ensure the gain of competitive advantage requires realistic evaluation of our immediate talents and abilities.  Goal setting will determine where we end up in the future.  Potential for gaining leadership depends on how we define ourselves today and in the future.
ENABLE the process by finding methods that bring the means to the end. 
The proper use of tools that accomplish tasks are designed to meet the goals.  Building skills that enhance our abilities and refine our motives help with defining clear goals that align with the ultimate objective.    Time management and lifestyle preferences structure our lives. The work-life balance improves productivity, and maximizes long-term satisfaction.  Taking time to form the network, and learning to listen is key to building influence.  Networking can make opportunities, gain mutual respect and foster collaboration.
EMPOWER the community to influence by forming professional friends that work together to build success.  The group agrees to a common goal, since they share values.   Learn to rely on others; each person has special contributions to make to a project or team, since individual talents may vary considerably.  Freedom from excess control can spur innovation.  Releasing the desire to control situations requires good listening, and willingness to accept change.\
Breathing life into projects, ideas or an organization requires proper use of feedback.  Accepting feedback in all forms helps us evaluate situations and decision making processes.  Evaluation of feedback speeds up the process since studying how decision-making relates to behavior.  Stalling on decisions can cause missed opportunities and extend the inevitable.   ENERGIZE positive emotions and optimistic attitudes to stay motivated, and get protection from damage of doubt and adversity.  Game play and risk create a challenge.

To create an organized plan or strategy.  To begin to predict the
Finding the right framework to set goals, evaluate decisions, and study behaviors begins with honest self appraisal
