8 – 10 PAGES

An important part of your grade is your Final Self-assessment Paper. Although it

is not due until the final week of class, it is important that you begin thinking

about this assignment early on. As the course goes forward, I encourage you to

take notes or journal some of the ideas you intend to express in the assignment

below. You will notice in Lesson 9 that you will have to submit an outline of

your final paper.

In our Leadership and Motivation course you have the opportunity to gain

awareness of how different aspects of your personal behavioral, leadership and

motivational skills sets influence your management style and potential, whatever

your course of study at PSU has been.  By participating in the class leadership

and motivational exercises and reflections, many of your strengths and new

confidences may have been brought to light, as well as some compelling

challenges that may need to be developed further.

In this paper, you will collect your thoughts by revisiting and re-evaluating the

information you learned in this course and other courses, and then draw some

conclusions about your learning agenda for managing and improving your

leadership career path going forward.

 

In your paper:

A. Identify and what you feel are your two (2) best leadership and motivational

(managerial) skill areas and support this with specific examples of how they

will help you in the future.

B. Identify and discuss two (2) skills in this course that you would like to

improve and work on. Explain how you will do this and why you think they

are or will be essential to your leadership success.

 

For each of the skill areas you choose, discuss and tie them together into a

cohesive paper with an introduction, conclusion, and appropriate transitions. 

Back up your observations, experiences, current events, thoughts, and /or

analysis by relating it to the various theories you learned in the lessons, where

appropriate.  Also, you are to reference and cite at least three (3) new sources in

addition to those you were exposed to throughout the semester.

End your paper with the final page by discussing your career goals and what

skills you will need to develop to go beyond your current skill set and station in

life after you graduate….continuing education and learning should always be a

big part of your life.
