READ THE INSTRUCTIONS HERE CAREFULLY!Personal Development Plan (PDP)The purpose of the PDP is to help you develop and chart your political strategy as you enter your career. Furthermore, it serves as a mechanism for understanding how people currently working in sectors and organizations you are interested in have built power via concepts related to the course and navigated social/moral dilemmas when exercising power in their careers.This PDP forces you to project yourself into the future. Creating a PDP enables you to set a range of short and long-term goals, and contemplate how power and politics are likely to impact your career objectives.As part of your PDP, you must conduct at least one, and preferably two or three informational interviews with professionals who are currently in careers that you are interested in pursuing. From these interviews, you will learn about their strategies for dealing with issues pertinent to power and politics and integrate these insights with course concepts, case examples, and class exercises to chart your own strategy.Based on what you have learned in the course and in your informational interviews, your PDP MUST Include the following:1. Overview of your career GOALS;2. Description of the person / people you interviewed;3. Exposition of your strategic plan for developing power (e.g., choosing where to start, building networks, etc.) as you start your career (i.e., before taking your job and in your first year on the job) and transition into your future goals. You should develop, detail, and analyze a strategy that fits the political environment in which you will be working. Your goal should be to have a coherent strategy that is supported from topics discussed in the course and what you heard from your interviewees;4. Ethical and social dilemmas (i.e., 2-3 potential dilemmas) that you might encounter as you implement your strategic plan and the concrete steps you will take to handle these dilemmas; and5. A “top 10 list” of notes to yourself about power and politics that you want to remember a year from now (on your cover page).6.
