You will write a 5 page, single spaced paper that includes two elements: 1) an summarizing the concepts from specific chapters of our book that are most important from your perspective and 2) for each of the three chapters that you summarize you will write detailed action steps describing how you will apply the information in your current work roles, school, volunteer or other activities you are involved in on a regular basis. You will identify specific steps you will take to expand, adjust or change your approaches when working with others to achieve important organization/team results. In this final paper you will demonstrate your learning from this course and your ability to integrate the concepts from the text/classes with the actions you will take to apply them. You will select THREE specific OB concepts from three different chapters in our text book and:
- Summarize the importance of this concept to you/your team at work (you will use the formal theories, resources shared in this class)
- List 3 – 4 specific actions you will take to enhance, improve, change your approach to apply the concepts at work. Since you will select THREE specific concepts from three different chapters and you will have 3 – 4 specific actions for each one, you will have a total of 9 – 12 specific actions in this final paper. All actions you include in your final integration paper should be what you are personally committed to doing and within your ability to make change (e.g. focusing on how to make your supervisor a better leader is not within your “sphere of influence”, however you can focus on how you will communicate in different ways with your supervisor to prevent miscommunications).
