Which job is best suited for you? Why?
Discuss briefly the job that would suit you the best based on your Career interest, Personality traits, leadership style and values. You are required to use self-assessment tests and describe yourself based on the findings.
The report will include:
1 – Introduction (Discuss your key skills, work experience and career goals.)
2 – Use a minimum of 2 (maximum of 3) self-assessment tests such as Holland’s test as well as any personality test. Attach the test results in the appendices. Critical reflect upon of what the self-tests are showing.

The following points should help you form a comprehensive message for the development team:
1.The development team will be more effective if members have some idea about how groups and teams typically operate. Review the dominant perspectives on team formation and performance from the concepts from the module for the committee so it can know what to expect.
2.Given the profiles of candidates for the development team, provide suggestions for who would likely be a good group member and who might be less effective in this situation. Be sure you are using the research on groups and teams in the module to defend your choices.
Using principles from the section on groups and teams, describe how you will advise the team to be cohesive and emerge as a high performance team.
The following points should help you form a message for the program team:
1.Leaders of the new combined organization should have a good idea of the culture of the school district, the NCPIE, and the Woodson Foundation because they will need to manage relationships with all three groups on an ongoing basis. How would you describe the culture of these various stakeholder organizations? Use concepts from the topic on organizational culture to describe how they differ and how they are similar.
2.How would you bring about change in the mindsets of the members and establish a culture that is conducive to the achievement of the goals of the new combined organization?
3.Consider how leaders of the new program can generate a transformational message and encourage employee and parent trust. Using material from the section on leadership, describe how you would advise leaders to accomplish these ends.
