My long-term professional goals are the achievement of a managerial position in a public service. However, my most preferred public service position is working in a Government sponsored community activism firm or the general Governmental administration. The development of this goal was influenced by the passion of contributing to the positive growth of our society. Apart from working for the public service, I would also love to venture into private managerial positions. However, working with a private organization that is directly linked to public service is my preference. Before coming up with the goals I assessed the different positions that would enable me to provide public service without only relying on public or governmental institutions. Acquiring skills from an MBA program will help me achieve everything since I will stay updated on the technological and theoretical changes taking place in the managerial positions. Attending a higher education facility in order to acquire an MBA in management prepares a person for his or her future endeavors. As a management students, I had four man goals that would help me realize that I have acquired the best skills to become a level five manager.

The fifth goal, is the ability to apply critical thinking skills when making decisions. This is an important section in management. The success or failure of an organization depends on the decisions made by the management. Managerial duties can be overwhelming sometimes. For instance, an era where employees are using mobile applications to track and record their working hours will require me to have enough knowledge on the technology so that I will be able to provide the best service. Enlightening myself on the changes experienced in global affairs will also be beneficial to me (Eva, 2013). Achieving my educational goals will help me take bold steps towards any managerial position that will contribute to the growth of the society. Reflecting on and developing a self-assessment plan would also help me develop a strong foundation for my future managerial positions.

In order to come up with the best analysis of my strength and weaknesses, I filled out a VARK questionnaire. My English skills are not at the best level. In order to address people well in future, I will be required to converse and write proper and understandable English. Being a native English speaker some people will not understand my statements since some of them are linked to my native way of thinking. Getting rid of my native accent will make oral presentations easy and people will be able to understand me well. Writing will also be easy since I will have advanced from using my native writing skills and learned how to write using grammatically correct sentences. For instance, I am currently reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R.
