The paper will be a 6-8 page analysis of three specific goals for improving your personal skill, understanding, or knowledge that you consider most important and attainable for you to improve your cross-cultural management effectiveness.
The paper must include a set of specific, concrete steps that you can take to make improvement in meeting those goals within the next three years or less.
The format of the paper should be three sections, one for each change you need to make. Within that should be the following parts:
What is the specific goal that you need to meet in improving your cross-cultural management ability?
Briefly describe the goal so it is clear what it is specifically you aim to achieve.
Why is this an important change for you personally in your context?
What about your current strengths and weaknesses, cultural context, personal interests, and career make achieving these goals important and/or fulfilling?
What specifically do you need to do to move towards achieving your three goals in the next months?
What is attainable for you to do?
Are there obstacles or opportunities that affects your choice of next steps?
How will you know you are succeeding in moving toward your goal?
