What is the value of doing this assignment? For the last nine weeks, you?ve been learning how the 10 Skills are an essential part of being successful in the future world of work. In Week 4 Assignment, you began to reflect on your skills and goals and how the 10 Skills have helped you reach accomplishments. Your understanding of the skills has been refined, and now it?s time to reflect on your strengths and areas for growth again in order to develop a plan moving forward.
For this assignment, you?ll identify three skills that you?d like to focus on and develop a plan for. This could be the three skills you wrote about for Week 2 Assignment or three new skills. As you think of which skills you?d like to improve upon, consider choosing skills at varying levels. You might, for example, choose a skill that you are already strong in, but would be excited to continue exploring and building upon, as well as a skill in which you might have more room for growth. At the end of the assignment, you?ll leave with the beginning of a tangible plan for personal and professional development that you can review with the Career Center team.
Your goal for this assignment is to: Practice your communication skill by using the Week 9 Assignment Template to outline a plan for developing skills to support a successful learning experience and career. To truly develop your communication skill it is important that you write using your own words and do not cut and paste from the Skills Definition table or any other source. (See the Skill Development Plan Sample .)

Complete the following sections of the template:
? Target Skill
? Strengths
