You are to write a 3-6 page paper (not including title, abstract and reference pages) in proper APA format. For your paper, you will create a fictional character for a movie. The character should be in a management position. Your paper should utilize appropriate course material (and from your own research). Please review the rubric above prior to writing this paper.
Ensure you address the following topics in your paper:
Describe the personality of your character (this is to help the reader understand the challenges your leader faces).
How did your character develop their management traits?
Identify three management traits that the leader possesses, and explain why they are necessary to a successful manager.
How you can develop each skill or trait in your own life? Training, education, experience, etc. – but be specific (if you create goals they should be SMART).
What are possible disadvantages to having these traits?
How have you seen the selected traits utilized effectively in your own experiences in life?
How can you market the traits (for this I would like to see resume bullets for each of the traits)? – Put yourself in your character’s shoes, as if they were writing a resume.
How do you relate to your character? Could you be managed by him/her/it?
Paper must include (all in proper APA 6th edition format):
Two additional resources from APUS online library
Two additional resources from the internet
Wikipedia, or similar sites are NOT acceptable sources for this paper
The bolded text below is from the previous assignment explaining what my character will be like:
One of the most effective techniques that had the most impact on me was when my boss showed empathy and had a realistic point of view. He looked at everything as a learning experience, and when I made a mistake, he wouldn’t lash out at me, or make me feel like I was worthless. He would first do some probing to find out why I did it the way that I did, really understand what was going through my mind, after that he would explain to me how he could see why I would have approached it that way with my point of view, and afterwards he would explain how I could approach it better next time, so the same issues don’t happen.
