VARK Learning Style Inventory

This week we began our study of Career Strategy by taking the VARK Learning Style Inventory to determine our individual preferences on how we acquire knowledge. Please comment on your indicated learning style, and explain how you think you can put it to the best use.

Dq2

Self-Awareness and Career Success

Why is understanding yourself important in your career development? How can you ensure that an employer will realize that you have a clear grasp of who you are and what you have to offer?

Life Skills

In “What Color Is Your Parachute?” (2007, now in its 36th printing, Ten Speed Press), Richard Bolles suggests that there are three life skills that schools should teach but don’t: (1) How to find a job, (2) How to choose and find an appropriate partner, husband, or wife, and (3) How to think and how to make good decisions. Do you think the author is correct? You do NOT need to read the book to discuss this question.

Dq2

DISC Personality Profile

This week we began our self-analysis by taking the AMA DISC Personality Survey (TM) to establish a personal baseline for our work in the course. Your full results will be filed in the Dropbox by the end of Week 2. See DocSharing for the report format. Please comment here on any perceptions or conclusions you wish to share with the class at this point. What does this work mean to you? Did you recognize the person described in the DISC results? From your knowledge of your classmates, and what they said in class and report here on their DISC, do you think this report is accurate?

Role Models

Class, let’s discuss any conclusions that you reached on your research and writing about role models. What did you find that was important to you, and what most surprised you about the individuals in your report on role models? What can you begin to transfer to your own perceptions of career tracks? Will there be any “shifts” in direction on your work at Keller?

Dq2

Career Aspects

Class, let’s discuss our progress in submitting our assignments for the Dropbox this week. How did you find 1) setting longer term goals, 2) setting short term academic goals, and 3) anticipating obstacles? Also, how do the results of your Stress Processing Inventory affect these three lists? Do you have any comments you wish to share with the class?

Emerging Global Trends

Class, in this thread please discuss your perceptions of the research into international organizations and issues. Let’s keep this focused and start with three questions. What most impressed you in this research? What emerging trends did you find that may affect your career choices? How has this research affected your choices, either in terms of timing for transition points in your career, for possible career changes, or for global locations for your work?

Dq2

Career Futures

Class, in this thread we will discuss what we anticipate for career outlooks three, five, and ten years after your date of graduation with your MBA degree. Become a career consultant for this thread. With the additional knowledge gained from your research this week, imagine you are making a “time line” to advise someone with career ambitions similar to yours. What would you tell them? While our discussion in the other thread for this week may involve large global issues, make your recommendations here specific. What are three key points you would make?

DeVry CARD 548 Week 5 Discussions Latest

Dq1

Global Leaders.

In the book Global Literacies (Simon & Schuster 2000), Robert Rosen states :

“Leaders are kept awake at night by hard business realities: the need to generate profitable growth, reach markets quickly, protect their reputation, and anticipate the unexpected.

But their deeper sleeplessness comes from the human challengers: How can they acquire and retain the best talent to lead their companies through change? How can they promote teamwork across boundaries and borders? How can they develop executives to lead in the world? ‘Our scarcest resource is globally literate leaders,’ warns Alfred Zeien, chairman and CEO of Gillette, one of the Unites States’ most global companies” (page 25).

Class, in this thread, let’s discuss key elements of leaders operating within global organizations. What are some key skill sets and personality traits of “globally literate leaders?”

Dq2

Meaningful Work

In the book The New Global Leaders (Jossy-Bass 1999), Manfred F.R. de Vries (with Elizabeth Florent-Treacy) states:

“Work in organizations, directed toward achieving shared goals, also answers another human need: it allows us to feel useful.Individuals need to commit themselves to something that is valuable, that has a positive impact. Through usefulness is a highly subjective experience, it is linked to the particular objectives and causes that drive individuals to transcend their customary abilities.Because a search for usefulness–for meaning–largely determines a person’s life course, it also influences life in organizations. Once again, this poses a challenge for the global leader: how to find a purpose or objective that employees from different cultures see as meaningful, inspiring them to strive in ways that simplistic formulas of return on investment and profit maximization cannot.”

Is there some truth to the author’s contention? What is it that we would find meaningful to our life’s purpose in the midst of an organization or work setting?

DeVry CARD 548 Week 6 Discussions Latest

Dq1

Leading Change

In his book Leading Change (HBS Press 1996), John Kotter states:

“A strategy of embracing the past will probably become increasingly ineffective over the next few decades. Better for most of us to start learning now how to cope with change, to develop whatever leadership potential we have, and to help our organizations in the transformation process. Better for most of us, despite the risks, to leap into the future. And to do so sooner rather than later.”

Do you agree with the author? If he is correct, how can we apply that to our own career plans?

Dq2

Learning To Keep Learning

In an article titled “Learning To Keep Learning” in the New York Times, dated December 13, 2006, Thomas L. Friedman states:

“I listened to this with mixed emotions. Part of me said ‘Gosh, wouldn’t it be nice to have a government that was so focused on innovation — instead of one that is basically anti-science.’ My other emotion was skepticism. Oh, you know the line: Great Britain dominated the 19th century, America dominated the 20th and now China is going to dominate the 21st. It’s game over.

“No question, China has been able to command an impressive effort to end illiteracy, greatly increasing its number of high school grads and new universities. But I still believe it is very hard to produce a culture of innovation in a country that censors [Google] which for me is a proxy for curtailing people’s ability to imagine and try anything they want. You can command K-12 education. But you can’t command innovation. Rigor and competence, without freedom, will take China only so far. China will have to find a way to loosen up, without losing control, if it wants to be a truly innovative nation.” (access through ProQuest Data Base in the Keller library-article 94 of 239 listed therein for that issue)

Comment on how one can stay abreast of changes that will likely affect a career plan. How will we keep up to date in time to make effective career transitions?

CARD 548 PREPARATION GUIDE: DISC Assignment

Personal Styles Analysis:

The AMA DISC SurveyTM

INTRODUCTION:

The DISC Survey is designed to measure four basic styles of behavior. Those are Directing, Influencing, Supportive, and Contemplative. Each style has strong points, and possible weaknesses, to an individual’s effectiveness. The survey materials will show both productive aspects of each of the four styles, as well as counterproductive aspects.

Take the DISC Survey online using the instructions found in the Week One Assignments page. Then, complete the following assignment that is due in the Dropbox by the end of Week Two of the session.

YOUR ASSIGNMENT:

Write a 3 to no more than 5 page double-spaced paper [be sure to use subheadings to identify each section] in which you use the results of your DISC Survey. The content of your DISC paper should include, but is not limited to, answers to the following questions:

  1. I.Describe your personal styles (25 points)

Describe your strongest style(s) and your weakest style. Provide examples to illustrate how the strong styles characterize you (or, in the case of your weakest style, do not characterize you). If your profile is balanced, describe either how the four styles equally characterize you or how your styles change depending on circumstances.

  1. II.Discuss how you developed your styles (25 points)

Consider the possible effects of family, school, organizational memberships, and/or culture on the development of your self-reported styles. Discuss the factor that you think was most important in shaping your personal styles.

INTRODUCTION:

The Stress Processing Report is designed to assist you in uncovering thinking patterns that may be limiting your personal success or causing you distress.
