What two concepts or ideas can be construed as relevant to improving your personal performance?

The assigned reading for this unit initiates with comments regarding the established mission statements of an unnamed organization. This spawned a thought of the multiple processes I had participated in while a member of the New York State Police. The intent associated with the creation of a mission was often well intended by the leadership. The problem arose with the leadership setting policy and designing the mission statement with little or no input from the rank and file. This type of scenario does not serve the true intent of an organizational mission statement, to represent the goals and values of the cause they serve. The importance of such a statement has sometimes been undersold and the leadership just goes through the motions. This can have dramatic effects on any type of organization, but it can be especially problematic in service organizations. You should take special note of the six primary ways to demoralize and not motivate the organizational personnel. The continuing thought in this course is that performance begins ultimately with each individual person. The performance of a particular organization can reap immediate results through better utilization of its human resource.

Learning Objectives
At the end of the unit, students will be able to:
Summarize in writing the term of mission statement, as described in the assigned reading for this unit.
Describe in writing the importance of leaders adopting a position of becoming mentors and coaches to facilitate performance improvement in an organization.

Unit 9- Reflection Paper
Prepare a reflection paper of approximately 500 words evaluating your organizations established mission statement. If your particular organization does not have a mission statement, you can discuss the positive and negative implications that result from not having a statement. The questions to be answered are rudimentary, does it represent the organization? Does it illuminate values as being an intricate part of the organization? How does it or does not truly represent the principles of its personnel? You should remain objective in completing this written assignment and utilize your personal experience along with the assigned readings in presenting your thought.

(The personal reflection papers provide an opportunity for students to offer their own assessments of the problems posed in the unit.

In addition to the reflection paper which must be 2 pages long, on the 3rd page these questions must be answered
