This is a reflective writing assignment and requires analysis of your current natural tendencies and behaviors. Your submission has no minimum or maximum page limit and should conform to APA standards. It should reflect both a scholarly exploration of the theories and models you choose plus your insights about what you could do differently and better to over deliver for your employer and grow in your ability as a leader. A way to frame this learning opportunity is to ask yourself, “why and how must I change if I want to be considered first for the next promotion in my department or area of responsibility?”
With this assignment students will evaluate the importance of their moods and emotions in the workplace.
