Essay 1: Success Zones– 700-1,000 words
Consider your department or organization’s mission, and the problems you face in the workplace. Identify 2-3 problems you would like to work toward solving. Using the steps outlined on pp. 149-151 in Puccio, Mance, & Murdock, analyze the degree of importance and probability of success for each problem, as well as the “success zone” within which each falls. Based on this evaluation, identify one problem you’d recommend working on resolving, and provide a rationale as to why you chose the problem.
