Create and present a visual representation of your future leadership development.
Discussion: Analyze Leadership Development
The purpose of this assessment is to discuss and analyze your leadership development based on the Kouzes and Posner (2017) model. This model includes five (5) Practices of exemplary leadership (modelling the way, inspiring a shared vision, challenging the process, enabling others to act and encouraging the heart). Each Practice is supported by two (2) Commitments.
This assessment has two (2) parts which includes creating a visual presentation(Part A) and written assignment (Part B).
Part A: Create and present a visual representation of your future leadership development. The visual representation is a creative analysis of your how the five Kouzes and Posner practices relate to your own leadership skills and can be used to plan your own leadership development. The visual representation can be presented in variety of ways and you may choose any presentation format with the exception of PowerPoint (or other similar programs) as these are not acceptable. It is an expectation that all participants bring the Visual Representation to workshop 4.
Part B: Briefly describe an example of leadership from your own experience (it is best to provide a personal example).
Analyse your example using each of the five (5) exemplary leadership Practices and ten (10) Commitments. Use Kouzes and Posner (2017) and other literature to support your discussion and illustrate an understanding of the role and nature of effective leadership in health.
Discuss how the five (5) exemplary leadership Practices and ten (10) Commitments could be used to contribute to the development of your own leadership abilities, including specific strategies.
Provide support and consolidation for the ideas presented in the visual presentation (Part A).
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
