Successful Career Approach Uses
you will reflect on recognizing characteristics of personality theory in a professional context and its importance. A successful career approach uses strong emotional intelligence skills, including knowing yourself and your needs, as well as being observant of your team around you.
You will create a professional blog post highlighting what you have learned about personality theory applied to yourself in the workplace. The purpose of the post is to promote and encourage similar reflection from peers. You can include personal examples or take a more hypothetical response in your blog post. The Project Two Milestone you completed in Module Five has helped prepare you for this assignment.
