Each student is required to conduct the following personality self-assessment activities from the self-assessment library:
• Myers Briggs Profile
• Costa & McCrae Big 5 Personality Traits

And then, document a “Critical Analysis” of their findings of their personality self-assessment activities .
The critical analysis requires you to:
• Present a brief review of your personal self-assessment findings.
• Present a detailed critical analysis of the findings. A detailed critical analysis includes the use of 3rd party evidence and references to explain and support the meaning of your findings.
• Reflect on your critical analysis, discuss what this means for you as a future leader or manager.
• Outline an action plan based on these findings to develop your leadership skills for the future.

• One Action Plan using SMART processes based on perceived weaknesses. (300 words)
• Conclusion (only one conclusion is required for the report). (100 words)
