3. Leadership and the Need for Evidence and Innovation- ATTACHED


1. Review the five competencies of leadership (chapter 1). Describe in your post what your process is or will be to meet the competency of “leading yourself”.  In addition, set a reasonable, small, self-care goal that you can accomplish every week for yourself for the next 7 weeks. Post your self-care goal on the discussion board thread this week. Please note: You will follow up with a progress report about meeting your self-care goal at week three and with a final post at the conclusion of the course. These self-care posts are part of your discussion board grade. 

2. Think about your role as a leader – either present or future role.  What activities or behaviors or activities could you demonstrate that reflect the seven characteristics (discussed in chapter 2) of the innovative leader?

3. Think about a change that is needed at your organization; Please use an idea not related to your scholarly project. Think about a needed change from a leadership perspective. How would you as the leader initiate this change/innovation  using the concepts of Complex Responsive Processes (CRP) (chapter 3)?

4.  Reflect on the values exercise. Did the value match up with how you make decisions, interact with others, and shape your decisions? Why or why not? How will this value influence you as a leader?

3. Leadership and the Need for Evidence and Innovation- ATTACHED


1.      Reflect on one of the four concepts presented in the reading in Chapter 4 of your textbook. The four concepts are:

               Organization as Conversation

               Working live: Improvisation

               Complex Relational Healthcare

               Complex Relational Being  

Choose one concept above and discuss the following:

What opportunities do you see in your organization for integrating this concept? What challenges might you face in adopting such a concept? What are some ways to overcome the challenges?

2.       Discuss an intervention, care modality, etc. in your practice setting that is based on evidence but needs a change. Using the evidence-innovation cybernetics model in your textbook as a guide (Figure 5.3 p.120) discuss the gaps (what is missing, what needs to be changed) in the areas of practice expertise, clinical values, and/ or culture of care.  As a leader how could you stimulate innovation to close these gaps to positively impact outcomes or changes?

3.  Post the results of your CliftonStrengths Assessment.  The assessment generates a report of your top five Themes/Strengths.  Post your top five Themes and discuss your thoughts about the results. Did the results surprise you?  Post the Ideas for Action for two of your five Themes. How will this knowledge of your Strengths and Ideas for Action enhance your leadership abilities?
