Assume you are the manager of your learning team and need to develop a plan that will address the characteristics of your group and yourself as the leader. This plan can be used to determine the needs of the learning team and is a tool for members to assess their skills, strengths, areas needing improvement, and the resources needed to help them reach their career goals.
Use each Learning Team member’s DiSC assessment results completed in Week One.
Develop a combined DiSC chart of your Learning Team members for use in developing this paper. Based on the individual assessments, what are the characteristics of your team?
Create a professional development plan to address the characteristics of the Learning Team members both individually and as a group and your ability to lead them:
- 1500 words
- Formatyour paper consistent with APA guidelines
- Evaluate the individuals, including yourself, and the group based on the DiSC assessment.
- Use the research in the texts and readings with citations and references to support your approach to employee professional development used in your plan. Don’t just give your unsupported opinion. Use at least two peer reviewed journal articles to support your discussion. There is a list of potential journals in the Course Announcement section. Another approach is to look at the references used by the authors of your textbook and select a couple of those journals. EBSCO and ProQuest in the University Libary will hold many of these management type journals. Go to one of the journals and put in key words matching the assignment like “employee development”, “Disc Assessment” etc.
