MANAGING INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOR
The SLP for this course involves making a personal assessment of a relevant set of skills, focusing on your strengths and identifying any weaknesses that may have been revealed. You will then create a plan by which you can “grow” your strengths and shore up your weaknesses. By the end of the project, you will have a personal management profile and action plan.
As we have discussed, your values and attitudes interact with your personality to create a strong effect on your work life. The fit between an individual’s personality and a company’s “style” is essential to job satisfaction. Someone who is risk-averse, for example, would probably be unhappy at 3M, a company with a reputation for innovation and risk-taking. Understanding the impact of your own personality on others helps you build productive work relationships with peers, subordinates, and bosses, alike.
Refer to the required and optional sources for this module (see required sources at the bottom of this instruction), and any other materials which will help you in understanding personality styles and how they affect organizational effectiveness. Remember to follow Tridentâ€™s guidelines for masters-level writing. (See The Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper.)
Click on this link http://www.humanmetrics.com/personality to access and complete the Jung Typology personality test (See Attached results for reference). After you complete the test, you will want to read the description, but in order to fully understand what this test measures, you should also review â€œPersonality Type explained.â€ Then review the pages on career choices, learning style and communication skills. Incorporate this information in formulating your responses to the questions below.
Prepare a 2- to 3-page essay that addresses the following:
**How does my personality type affect my career and effectiveness at my job?**
***What did the test reveal about you?
***What can you infer from this test about your strengths and weaknesses?
***How does what you have learned from your module background materials about your personality type affect your motivation? Is this limited to a specific type of situation?
***What specific steps can you take to increase your strengths and build up weaknesses?
***Refer to at least two module readings plus any other materials to help you in understand personality styles and how they affect organizational effectiveness. Complete the assessment according to the guidelines. Include the actual results in an Appendix section as the last page of your paper.
**Include the actual results (See Attached) in an appendix at the end of your paper. (Note: This appendix requirement will likely increase your paperâ€™s Turnitin similarity score; however, your professor is aware of this.)**
