Start with a pretty honest self assessment ("I am going for manager, I've had great experience in these areas but I think I need to do more of x y and ") and acknowledge a few areas that need work. Then ask if they have any different or additional areas for development. Then ask if they have any rec's for how to develop those areas - how did they learn them, for example?

Great replies so far. Additionally, can the LCSP help you take on manager-level responsibilities now? It will make consensus that much smoother.
