SKILL SET OVERVIEW

FUTURE DEVELOPMENT

A personal success plan can serve as the foundation for a successful career. In fact, there are so many qualified professionals in the workforce today that a personal success plan is more of a requirement than a luxury. With this in mind, coupled with the training I recently received, my personal success plan was prepared in various stages. I first identified that my career ambitions and working style place me in the adhocracy field of Mintberg's model. I then used this as a background that offered other insights that are also included in my personal success plan including items such as working to be more disciplined in different areas of my professional requirements as well as learning to better manage conflict with personality types that are not naturally compatible to….

Personal Success Plan
Personal success begins with determination and the utter most desire to achieve something in the coming time. This also includes chalking out plan for a long-term career-growth and shedding some sprinkles of reality on one's dreams and aspirations. As Stephen Iscore (1998) thinks, "You are here for a purpose; God doesn't just make extras to fill in the scenery" (para.2). Having a clear mind set is very necessary to polish-up one's talents and hone any further skills which are required for the accomplishment of a successful career. One has to determine of what specific goals he or she has to achieve and then dedicate one's self into the attainment of those goals with unswerving singleness of purpose like the trenchant zeal of a crusader (Meyer, 2011). This discussion will elaborate on the role of tools, techniques and experiences one may have to concentrate deeply on to augment the….

Where I see myself being prevented from climbing the business ladder was in the fact that I did not have a master's degree. This is really what I knew I needed to obtain in order to get where I wanted to be professionally. I had the experience that I needed, but I also needed the MBA. My ambition to go far in business have always been great, but it wasn't until I got to a certain level in my career that I realized I needed the full package in order to compete on the level that I wanted.
I would love to build a company that matches government subsidies with private money to build green residential and commercial structures. One of the reasons I went to Wells Fargo was because, unfortunately, financing is nearly impossible to obtain for development projects due to the present economic climate. This is, perhaps, one….

Career Plan
After some serious, and not-so-serious, formal, and informal, types of soul searching, I have a much stronger sense of who I am and where I am going. Over the past ten weeks, I have encountered, interacted with, applied, and leveraged a number of core principles that will help me succeed and continually reinforce what I have learned. For example, Terrace Martin never uses the word "failure." Will I be able to stop using the word failure in my life? All it takes is mental discipline, and the courage to say no to negative thought patterns that create failure in the first place. There is no such thing as failure, because just the act of pursuing our dreams each day is a sign of personal success. Likewise, pursuing our dreams each day means taking personal responsibility for our lives and our reality. We do not need to blame others for….

Multiple Intelligences on Personal Success
Multiple Intelligences

In the early 1980s, Howard Gardner first developed his ideas regarding multiple intelligences. His theory posits that each human has pluralistic intelligence -- that intelligence manifests in many ways at once. The theory of multiple intelligence leads to new ideas and perspectives regarding topics in education including types of learners, methodology, and philosophy of education. Gardner classifies the types of intelligences as follows: logical-mathematical; spatial; linguistic; bodily-kinesthetic; musical; interpersonal; intrapersonal; naturalistic; and existential. In an ideal world, each person would develop all their intelligences evenly and developed into truly well-rounded people who are highly capable and flourish. Just from reviewing the list of intelligences, a reader can easily imagine how the development or retardation of certain intelligences play out in one's life and how their development (or lack) has the potential to contribute to a person's success or failure. At first review of the….

A pattern of personal success begins with a plan. Planning is, in fact, one of the core principles of leadership in any field. In Principle-Centered Leadership, Stephen Covey (1992) states, "careful planning helps us maintain a sense of perspective, purpose, and ordered priorities," (p. 77). Without perspective, purpose, and ordered priorities, one can become distracted, discouraged, and dismayed when their goals have yet to be met. Covey's flagship book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People includes several references to the importance of planning. In fact, several of the Seven Habits are related to the importance of planning and strategizing for success. The first set of habits is related to self-mastery and independence. Cultivating self-mastery and independence requires three core habits, according to Covey: being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, and putting first things first. A personal and professional development plan hinges on these three habits of highly….

Team Communication
Best and Worst Practices: Team Communication

In today's workplace there are an unprecedented number of ways for team members to communicate. These options can range from face-to-face meetings, to email, to video chat, to instant messaging, text, and the list goes on and on. There are so many different ways to communicate that choosing one can be a daunting task. Each form of communication has its own set of inherent advantages and disadvantages. Both email and text are both efficient and convenient however it is often difficult to place the information from these sources into context. Much of the information in emails is subject to misinterpretation or sometime it is glanced over altogether.

One worst practice that I have witnessed is a group member sending an email to try to convey something urgent and really important. However, when the receiver gets this email they do not interpret the information correctly and….

Personal Success I Do Not

Ideally, I hope that my formal education will enable me to identify the best use of my natural talents and interests so that my eventual career goals allow me to pursue a direction that is intrinsically fulfilling, but in some field or position where my work also serves a purpose that is worthwhile in terms of accomplishing something more than making a profit. I would consider my life to have been "successful" to the extent I was able to provide for my family's needs and also contribute something meaningful to others as well. Achieving those two goals in a manner that also happens to fulfill a personal interest simultaneously would be the ultimate in personal success in….

Personal communication skills, as exemplified by talk show host Larry King, are crucial to success in today's interconnected world. King, one of America's most successful communicators, provides a valuable example of successful communication skills that have brought him world renown as a broadcaster, successful book career, and influence in the political arena. It is through the example of individuals like King that we can learn not only the value of personal communication skills, but the specifics of some of the most important of these skills. King himself notes that personal communication skills are based on a number of factors such as honesty, interest, attitude, and openness. Successful adaptation of such skills can help the individual both on a personal and professional level.
Larry King is one of America's best known talk show hosts. He hosts the well-known Larry King Live, the world's first phone-in television talk show. Larry King live is….

Personal Perspective on Changes That Occur Throughout Early, Middle, And Late Adulthood
One of the more interesting things about aging is just how differently people go about the process. In my experience, many people seem to grow older and change very little from their early to late adulthoods as a result, keeping the same interests, friends, spouse, home and job for years and years. For instance, I know one elderly widower, "Mark," who has conducted petroleum engineering seminars in several states nine months a year for more than 30 years. Besides some minor administrative work and continuing education, Mark has the rest of the year to himself and he participates in a number of leisure and recreational activities, some of which he takes seriously. For instance, Mark is still an accomplished ballroom dancer despite his somewhat advanced age (73 years), and he has played tournament bridge games in Las Vegas with….

I studied there for two years and then again relocated to complete three years of college at California State Northridge.
My five years of education at these two universities, as well as my education in Australia have exposed me to many varied international peoples and has further broadened my understanding of the diversity of language and culture. As a student I am clearly focused on group work as an essential element of success in education and demonstration of knowledge and this has been greatly influenced by my exposure to many cultures and friendships with many diverse individuals. Group work is also essential in business and I hope that my focuses as a business/finance major in group work success will aide me extensively in my career.

Within the development of my personal and educational life I was drawn to Finance as a professional and degree goal. I have extended this commitment by….

My work as a research assistant in a cognitive psychology lab added to my theoretical knowledge by giving me practical experience in encoding and analyzing data. This experience provided me with the opportunity to use analytical tests and interpret statistical data. Bookkeeping of participants' demographic information also further developed my organizational skills. Having been a research assistant, I have gained a reasonable understanding of research design and the statistics needed to conduct research. For my senior major project, I wrote a research paper on an empirical study that investigated the role of change detection in studies of visual attention in the field of cognitive psychology. This paper was awarded the Sharon Borine award for the best major project in Psychology because of its successful presentation of research and adherence to American Psychology Association guidelines. I strongly believe my research experience will help me attain success in conducting graduate research….

Despite the fact I was preparing students for a standardized exam, I take pride in the fact that I tried to grasp what unique pedagogical strategies were required to enable them to master the material.
A seek further education in developmental psychology and general educational theory to build upon my natural strengths as an educator and communicator. My experiences have been diverse, spanning all grades as a substitute teacher in a variety of areas as well as my preparatory work with adult GED students. This exposure to students in a wide range of developmental stages has helped me see how the learning process develops over time, as basic skills make a foundation for students to learn new concepts. But sometimes, if these core concepts are lacking, a teacher can learn to help the student remedy past academic deficits. I have also worked as a tutor on a one-on-one basis with….


Given my experiences at Chinatown Teen Post and Blue Phone Wireless, I am very excited about my future prospects in management. Academic skills are valuable for learning business operations, but real-world experience adds missing ingredients needed to fully understand success such as knowing how valuable personal happiness, social responsibility and customer satisfaction really are. I am eager to contribute my wisdom and leadership to the business community after receiving formal business training at the University of California.

I believe that the most important contribution I can bring to the University of California is my great respect for all individuals. Many people assume characteristics and create an image of a person they don't even know. As humans we tend to judge people very quickly based on their sex, race, ethnicity or social class. And, we love to judge people according to their image because it means so much in our society now-a-days.….

Positions such as Administrative Assistant and Front Office Manager for Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International consequently strengthened my job qualifications and established me as an effective communicator.
My main goal as a Front Office Manager and Customer Representative was to establish credibility. Due to my people-orientation skills I was able to effectively measure - with maturity - those circumstances surrounding my communications, including situational and cultural context. Through hard effort, patience, and serious consideration of the multi-national environment in which I was required to operate and engage, I consequently adopted an individual style of communicating.

My daily tasks included messages conveyed through channels; verbal face-to-face meetings, telephone, written letters, e-mails, memos, and reports were but a few of the communication opportunities encountered.

Clearly recognizing the actions or reactions influenced by my message, I worked to ensure that my communication was always unambiguous and clear. Keeping in mind that people receiving my….
