Assignment 3: Self Reflection Report
PART 2 – 50%; Due date: October 25th, 2018 – 23.30 PM
Length: 3000 words (Word count Excludes Executive Summary and Appendices)
Topic: How do my behaviors impact on my approach to management?
The idea of this assignment is to merge the topic and content knowledge you have gained throughout the unit with your understanding of your self-awareness activities that you carried out throughout the semester (in class experiences and/or in your workplace). In this assignment three you are required to write a reflective report in which you address the following question:
“How do (or might) my behaviours impact on my approach to management?”
? that you have explored, assessed and reflected upon your constructed behaviours;
? that you understand management roles in relation to working with and supervising others;
? that you became conscious of why your group members behaved* in certain ways in different contexts*; and
? that you have considered how your behaviours impact your individual approach to management
You should choose to focus the assignment around two of the following topics:
? Organisational deviance and Misbehaviors
? Working with different personalities
? Emotions and authenticity
? Difficult conversations and effective feedback
In doing so, for example, you can frame the assignment questions in the following ways:
“How do (or might) my behaviours impact on my approach to working with different personalities?” (OR)
“How do (or might) my behaviours impact on my approach to having difficult conversations and providing effective feedback?” (OR)
“Howdo(ormight)mybehavioursimpactonmydisplayofemotionsandauthenticity, ormyacceptanceofothers’display of emotions and authenticity?”(OR)
Any other question that may be appropriate to write your reflective report.
As part of your reflective report, it is expected that you should include the following information:
? Further reflection and interpretation of your self-evaluation of self-awareness completed during week 2;
? Discussions or and/or learning outcomes from week to week;
? A record of observations/insights/conversations/findings or anything else of relevance as you undertake the unit – these are
known as artefacts and include photographs, cartoons, visual images, YouTube clips, or other material to support your findings. For example, you can insert visual images such as photographs/pictures into your report to demonstrate or illustrate particular points or experiences. You might also find that reference to a particular video clip provides a good way of articulating your point (such as you would in Assignment Two).
? Reference to unit content is a must to reflect your key learnings*. In addition, how you approached the team learning processes and your contribution and support for the weekly discussion* based on given readings.
? Use of references (a minimum of 15 refereed journal articles) is necessary for this report and follow the Harvard referencing style.
*Note: It doesn’t matter if you have never been in a management role. Your reflection should include managing yourself, people and processes. For example, you may be an introvert and avoid speaking up in group situations. You may be from a culture where it is disrespectful to question your boss’s decisions.
