To begin, you will first need to use the provided assessment tool to evaluate your current state. Once you have determined your scores, you will then need to complete a 2-3 page paper addressing the following points:
1. Discuss the areas in which you have strengths, as indicated by higher scores, and identify the areas that require further development, as indicated by lower scores.
2. Identify two strategies that you can employ to maintain or maximize each identified strength. These strategies should be specific and actionable.
3. Similarly, identify two strategies that you can utilize to strengthen each area that needs further development. Clearly explain how you intend to implement these strategies.
