Addressing a Personal Challenge: Business Thinking
Understanding business thinking is integral to successfully advancing in your career. The purpose of this assignment is to analyze how personal traits may impact business success.
As you read the descriptions in the articles and view the media element, take notice of the consistent and dramatic understanding needed to evaluate personal strengths and weaknesses. In a short essay (200–300 words), examine the traits outlined in the article by Geldhof and Lerner, “How to Recognize a Budding Entrepreneur; New Research Identifies the Four Qualities that Founders-to-be Have in Common,” focusing on how they affect business professionals.
To complete the assignment:
- Read the articles and watch the media piece in this unit’s studies.
- Summarize what you see as the main ideas of the article by Geldhof and Lerner. Explain what these ideas mean to you.
- Describe how understanding personal traits might impact whether or not an individual decides to open a business. Ideas like the ones in this course reading may seem abstract, even removed from our own experience. However, if they are important ideas, they are related to something everyone can see.
- Explain how it might impact your career if you went into business today with the idea of developing personal assets rather than tangible assets such as warehouses, paper-based transactions, file cabinets and other hard assets.
Unlike other assignments in this course, this assignment will be graded by a checklist with four criteria. To see how your assignment will be graded, review the four criteria:
