- Identify a specific point in time: for example when you made an important decision (e.g. to join or leave an organization or a team), or when you were highly satisfied or unsatisfied, or when you came to a realization about yourself, etc.
- Reflect on the “whys” as it relates to who you are as a person and your tendencies and preferences.
- Provide empirical evidence for this description (specific examples).
- Include what you have learned about yourself and future career implications. You are to make at least 3 connections drawing on the personality traits, emotional intelligence, learning styles, motivational drives, and other individual OB concepts when reflecting and writing this paper.
