Begin this assignment by completing the Personal Assessment of Management Skills (PAMS). The Personal Assessment of Management Skills (PAMS) is a tool that will help you gauge your level of managerial skill competence. The PAMS include rating scales on sections regarding self-disclosure and openness to feedback as well as an awareness of your values, emotional intelligence, change orientation, and core self-evaluation. Overall you will create a profile of your leadership competence.
Then, share your PAMS assessment to at least three people who are familiar with your leadership qualities- a supervisor, colleagues, direct reports, etc. Ask those you select to reflect on your leaders’ skills and provide feedback that will help you to become a more effective manager. Include their feedback as you develop your Personal Development Plan to enhance your leadership capabilities.
Now, based on the results from your PAMS, feedback from selected individuals, and what you have studied in this course, create a Personal Development Plan to improve your leadership skills. The plan should include goals, objectives, timelines, and necessary resources.
Be sure to specify the following:
- Techniques you will implement to motivate employees and lead change, even when some oppose the change.
- An interpretation of your role in organizational planning.
- A critique of your skills in supervising a diverse workforce, indicating goals for improvement.
Support your assignment with at least seven scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
Length: 12-15 pages, not including title and reference pages. Include a copy of your completed assessment with your paper. It is not counted in the pages required.
Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
