Analysis on your skill competencies and how they may impact your role as an effective, ethical leader

It is now time to reflect on the results from your PAMS assessment. Many times, we see ourselves differently than we may be perceived by others. If we are honest with ourselves, analyzing our own skills and traits can provide valuable information about our leadership potential. Self-analysis can help us identify our strengths and weaknesses, as well as the areas in which we need to improve.

Based on your PAMS results, write a summary outlining your strengths and weaknesses. In your summary, include an analysis on your skill competencies and how they may impact your role as an effective, ethical leader. In addition, develop strategies and/or recommendations for improvement as to how you can become a more effective leader and communicator.

Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Length: 3-4 pages, not including title and reference pages
