Leadership Assessment

Leadership Assessment

Final Project:

Earlier in the course, you were asked to informally evaluate your leadership skills and qualities. In this Final Project, you use formal assessment tools to identify your areas of strength and areas in which you need further development. You may use the results of this self-assessment to develop a plan to gain the skills and experiences that will help you move toward achieving your short- and long-term professional goals and objectives.

Using the assessment tools provided in Introduction to Leadership: Concepts and Practice, conduct a self-assessment of your own leadership characteristics, style, and skills. Complete at least four assessment tools for this self-assessment. In addition, select one tool to give to a colleague or supervisor so he or she can assess your leadership skills.

Final Project (2–4 pages in APA format)

Evaluate your current leadership characteristics, style, and skills based on the assessment tools you and your colleague/supervisor completed. Be sure to:

Potential Community Health Interventions

Potential Community Health Interventions

Select one of the specific health improvement needs that you identified in the first assignment. Conduct research on the specific problem and describe two possible approaches to address the problem in your community. One approach may be the same one that you identified in your Unit 3 assignment, or you can select two new approaches. Each must be evidence-based. One strategy must be based on a treatment model and the other, a wellness model.

  • Treatment models provide care to patients who exhibit a problem.
  • Wellness models take proactive steps to prevent development of a problem.

Note

Be sure to differentiate between these two models explicitly.

You may wish to research how other communities are addressing the need and locate national data. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Web site (linked in Resources) may be a good place to start.

Write an eight-page outline that includes the following:

  • Restate the specific health improvement need that you are researching.
  • Identify the salient characteristics of the affected community.
  • Assess how social determinants affect individuals relative to the specific health need.
  • Assess how other factors may impact the health need.
  • Present two approaches to address the identified problem.
    • Describe an evidence-based treatment model to address the health need.
    • Describe an evidence-based wellness model to prevent future development of the health problem.
    • Be explicit in your descriptions, pointing out the identifying characteristics of each model. How can you tell whether the model belongs in the treatment model or the wellness model?
    • Assess the advantages and disadvantages of each model.

Assignment Requirements

  • Written communication: Should be free of errors that detract from the overall message. It should be clear and well organized, with correct spelling, grammar, and syntax.
  • APA: Comply with current edition APA style and format guidelines, including citations and reference page.
  • Length: 8 pages plus title page and references.

While the text does not really deal with personnel questions in the area of budgeting, consider this one question based on your own thoughts and experience:
5. Why are personnel management, pensions and health care critical to governmental budgeting?
6. How would you define intergovernmental relations, and what is its importance to budgeting?
7. Since the federal government does not control the states in most areas, how does it get them to follow federal policies and mandates?

9. There are significant differences between the relationship of the federal government to the states and the relationship of the state governments to their local governments. Discuss that issue and its impact.

Andrew’s Case

Andrew’s Case

Discussion Topic

Andrew wants to eat healthier and went online to learn about MyPlate. He came away overwhelmed at all the information and was turned off by reading about ounces and cups-concepts that are unfamiliar to him. He is clearly interested in changing his food habits but is stuck on the idea that that isn’t possible unless he weighs and measures his food. He is wondering if eating healthier is worth the trouble.

  1. How would you encourage him to approach the goal of eating healthier? What information would you gather about his usual intake? His willingness to change?
  2. How would you use MyPlate to help him make better choices without overwhelming him?
  3. Andrew’s wife thinks he is not consuming enough vitamin C. Andrew is worried that he will develop scurvy. Can you assume that he is at risk for scurvy if he isn’t consuming the RDA for vitamin C?
  4. Why may his wife’s assessment be inaccurate? How can you determine if Andrew isn’t consuming enough vitamin C? What would you tell Andrew to calm his fears?

IT Governance board

IT Governance board

Among other things, the Chief of Staff’s organization is responsible for organizing meetings and providing support to the various internal governance boards and executive committees that comprise the internal governance infrastructure. Last week, you had a brief introduction to the work of one of these boards — the IT Governance board — when you helped the Chief Financial Officer and CFO staff put together a briefing to inform the board’s members about a technology problem.

The work of the company’s governance boards and committees is extremely important since these groups plan, design, negotiate, implement and provide oversight for the processes, policies, procedures, and other mechanisms used to guide,  monitor, control, and assess the operations of the company. Each board is comprised of executives who each represent their functional areas or a group of internal stakeholders. Usually, there is a chair position that rotates among the members. If you would like to learn more about corporate governance in general, Deloitte’s report Developing an effective governance operating model: A guide for financial services boards and management teams provides a brief but comprehensive overview (see https://www2.deloitte.com/content/dam/Deloitte/global/Documents/Financial-Services/dttl-fsi-US-FSI-Developinganeffectivegovernance-031913.pdf). You may also find this article What is a management system?, from the International Standards Organization, helpful as it explains what a management system is and why standards are needed to define repeatable steps that organizations can use to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of their management activities.

The IT Governance board operates under authority delegated by the corporate governance board. This board’s charter gives it responsibility for governance, risk management, and compliance management (GRC) for corporate IT processes, policies, and technologies. Members of the board each serve for a three year term. Of the 24 members, 8 have just begun their terms.

The IT Governance board focuses upon ensuring that the company achieves maximum value for each dollar spent on information technology capabilities. The board’s members must exercise due diligence to ensure that the company complies with laws and regulations that apply to the use of Information Technology (including privacy and security requirements). The board is also charged with ensuring that the company complies with voluntary standards such as PCI-DSS since these have an impact on the company’s business operations (non compliance could result in the company not being permitted to receive payments via credit cards).

The next meeting of the IT Governance board will include a set of orientation briefings for the new members. Your assignment, as a support staffer, is to help prepare for this orientation meeting by developing a short (5-minute) briefing on one of the following IT management / IT security management frameworks, standards, and models.

  1. COBIT
  2. ITIL
  3. ISO 27001 (ISMS Program Management)
  4. NIST Cybersecurity Framework
  5. NIST Security and Privacy Controls (NIST SP 800-53)
  6. NIST Risk Management Framework (NIST SP 800-37)

See the weekly readings for information about your selected topic. Then, find additional sources on your own. (Each of these standards and frameworks is discussed in freely available materials on the Internet or in articles available through the university’s only library. There is no reason for you to pay for copies of any materials for this assignment.)

Note

After you have researched your chosen framework, standard, or model, develop a written script for your briefing which you will deliver verbatim (as written). You should also prepare a one page handout for the board members to follow as you present your speech.
