Rating Success in Applying the Principles of Leadership

The purpose of this assignment is to reflect on how groups collaborate to be agents of change and make group decisions.

To document your leadership experiences, team collaboration, and learning, you will complete a series of weekly journal entries that will be used as the basis for the Topic 6 benchmark assignment. Strong leadership is important in the strategic planning process. The ability to lead and collaborate with a team to create a shared mission, vision, and plan to guide decision making can directly contribute to the success of a public health initiative. In a 250-word reflection, discuss the following:

  • Thinking about your group’s collaboration, how would you rate your success in applying the principles of leadership, governance, and management in the creation of your vision and mission and in the decision-making process used to create your action plan? Provide a specific example that illustrates how your team performed effectively and a second example that illustrates an opportunity for improvement in team collaboration.
  • Based upon what you know about your own leadership style and traits and those of the other group members, explain two ideas you have about how you could help other group members develop their leadership skills.
  • Considering the leadership styles and traits of your teammates, discuss what you have learned about leadership from your teammates and provide an example of one new leadership strategy or technique you can implement to improve your leadership skills.
