What is the value of doing this assignment? For the last nine weeks, you’ve been learning how the 10 Skills are an essential part of being successful in the future world of work. In Week 4 Assignment, you began to reflect on your skills and goals and how the 10 Skills have helped you reach accomplishments. Your understanding of the skills have been refined, and now it’s time to reflect on your strengths and areas for growth again in order to develop a plan moving forward.

For this assignment, you’ll identify three skills that you’d like to focus on and develop a plan for. This could be the three skills you wrote about for Week 2 Assignment, or three new skills. As you think of which skills you’d like to improve upon, consider choosing skills at varying levels. You might, for example, choose a skill that you are already strong in, but would be excited to continue exploring and building upon, as well as a skill in which you might have more room for growth in. At the end of the assignment, you’ll leave with the beginning of a tangible plan for personal and professional development that you can review with the Career Center team.

Your goal for this assignment is to: Practice your communication skill by using the Week 9 Assignment Template to outline a plan for developing skills to support a successful learning experience and career. To truly develop your communication skill it is important that you write using your own words and do not cut and paste from the Skills Definition table or any other source. (See the Skill Development Plan Sample.)

Steps to complete: In Week 9, complete and submit your Development Plan for Three Skills using the following steps:

STEP 1: Identify the targeted skill. Summarize your strengths and areas of improvement in this skill area. Then, identify your desired outcomes around this skill area and write a positive goal statement. Review the Skills Definition table if you need a quick reminder of the 10 skills. Complete the following sections of the template:

• Target Skill
• Strengths
• Areas of Improvement
• Desired Outcome
• Goal Statement

STEP 2: Specify the actions you can take to work towards your goals, with specific strategies and practices that you can apply. Identify any potential obstacles and challenges to achieving your goal. Complete the following sections of the template:

• Practices for Growth
• Action Steps
• Potential Obstacles and Challenges

STEP 3: Keeping your action plan in mind, identify trusted supporters and university resources that can help you in your skill development plan. Complete the following sections of the template:

• Key Supporters
• Supporting University Resources

STEP 4: Reflect on the connections between skill development and your overall personal, academic, and professional goals. Complete the following sections of the template:

• Benefits From Change and Connections to Personal, Academic, and Career Goals.

STEP 5: Complete Steps 1–4 for the two other skills you have identified. When you are done you should have three plans filled out in the template for three different skills.

STEP 6: Save the template with your completed responses as a Word file titled Your Name, WRK100_Week 9 Assignment Skill Development Plan and submit in Blackboard in Week 9.
