M2) Analyse the personal development needed to run the business successfully In this assignment, I will try to analyse the personal development needed to run the business successfully. Communication skills To begin with, I believe that I possess a set of skills which will allow me to run my business efficiently.

Furthermore, following both Bruffee’s and Dewey’s beliefs, I have gained further appreciation for the group work I had done in the past. Group learning was imperative for my growth as an individual in a society where working with others is inevitable, and an essential ability. Knowing this, I am going to communicate this as much as I can to any students I encounter who are anti-group
As our focus shifts from being on the best corners of Main & Main, to being America’s most loved health and beauty destination, we must ensure our leadership internalize and practice our cultural beliefs as well as share the cultural beliefs with team members. Our cultural beliefs should guide our daily actions as they are incorporated in all aspects of team member engagement and store operations. Cultural beliefs determine the way in which we conduct meetings, generate and execute ideas, and solve problems. Moreover, talking about the cultural beliefs in a consistent way will help us gain momentum in driving our cultural beliefs and re-energize the Walgreens culture. My recommendation is that we engage our leaders to use two simple tools
It is important that I acknowledge these feelings and deal with them right away before it can effect therapy with the client, by seeking personal therapy or consolidation with a colleague or professional. Through me becoming aware of the situation it enables me to maintain a professional healthy relationship and bias with the client. Therapy will allow me to learn how to observe, acknowledge confront, and deal with the situation ethically, and right away when it starts to happen. It can also allow me to identify and explore my blind spots that I am confronted with through my clients, and will allow me to help set my personal life away from work, and help succeed professionally. I believe that through personal therapy, it will enable me to engage in my own personal self-awareness and overall well-being, and decrease the possibility of burnout that comes with the profession.
A leader needs to adapt to situations and use techniques that are inclusive in order to avoid conflict and aids decision-making. Building relationships, considering others feelings and celebrating their successes with them can maintain strong leadership. By encouraging my team to participate in the decision making process I empower them, which inspires job satisfaction this reduces conflict, poor time keeping and absenteeism.

After completing the learning style inventory, I discovered that I am both an Active Experimentation (AE) and Abstract Conceptualization (AC) learner. Which makes a lot of sense based on my life experiences, I learn best when I am thinking and doing. I love to take my time on assignments and think about what I want to accomplish. Making sure to tackle a problem from various angles is always something that I naturally do. Once I figure out a strategy I apply the doing piece, trying and tweaking my approach until I have found an optimized route.
Through the educational experiences I receive from the MSW program I plan to contribute a professional, eager, and hardworking student in pursuit of a higher education. The educational experiences I received through my BSW program opened me up the scope of social work and provided me with the basic needs of a generalist social worker practicing in any field. The program was very student-centered to all my educational needs and this trait passed through me as I became engaged in an active community. I too made sure that each client and their problem were the center of my focus. When I started practicing my skills, through a field placement, my goal was to make people aware of a social and/or economic problem that deserved some type of justice.
