As we have learned in Chapter 8, employee development through performance management is important. However, we must not ignore the importance of ensuring our managers and leaders are developed. Just like subordinates are measured using performance standards, managers should also be measured against set standards.
For this assignment, you are required to create a self-assessment of yourself. Specifically, pretend that you’re a manager. Discuss the following:
Overall Strengths (2 minimum)
Overall Weaknesses (2 minimum)
Accomplishments in your Employment
Two (2) personal goals and two (2) professional goals that you hope to accomplish
Feedback that you can apply to achieve your goals. For this requirement, consider the feedback that you have received from parents, friends, classmates, instructors, etc. and how this feedback will assist you in improving/accomplishing your goals.
Think about your overall strengths and weaknesses in terms of competencies you need to be an effective manager at work.
