Leadership Self-Reflections & Career Development Plan
The purpose of this paper is to complete several self-reflections found in the course textbook, Management, 13th Edition, by Schermerhorn, interpret the results and create your development plan.
Completing the self-reflections will help you to get to know yourself better and how you interact with others. The reflections will help you to focus on what is important to you, your likes and dislikes and more. When interpreting the results both individually and then overall, they will assist you in identifying career paths that may be a better fit for you. Keep an open mind and don’t over analyze the questions when taking the assessments. There is no right or wrong answer. This is all about you, who you are and what may be a good career choice for you.
There is a 3-Step process including 1) Self-Assessment, 2) Overall Findings and 3) Development Plan. The grading of this assignment is about the quality of your work, not quantity. Please take the assignment seriously and provide thoughtful, insightful interpretation of your results and provide realistic actions that you could personally commit to do for your development going forward.
