Self-Assessment

Selfawareness  is essential for developing leadership skills. Recognizing your own  strengths, weaknesses, and values, and understanding emotional  intelligence and learning styles can help you to be a more effective  nurse leader.

For this assignment, you have the opportunity to  take a variety of self-assessments to learn more about yourself and  identify your assets and weaknesses as a leader. This will assist you in  discovering how you can improve your own self-leadership skills. You  will be asked to think critically about your results and submit a  reflection as directed below.

Refer to the topic Resources. Select  and complete three self-assessments. Be sure to document the results of  each assessment to assist you in completing the reflection portion of  the assignment below.

Self-Assessment Reflection

Becoming  self-aware is an ongoing process requiring introspection. The more  often people practice self-reflection, the more opportunities they have  to understand their own behaviors and adapt their approaches to working  with other people, which can improve both your own and other’s abilities  to meet their professional goals.

In a 1,000-1,250 word reflective essay, address the following:

  1. Provide a rationale and brief summary for selecting each self-assessment. Summarize the results you obtained on each assessment.
  2. Identify the leadership style that closely aligns to your philosophy of care and explain what appeals to you about that style.
  3. Reflect  on how you might incorporate elements of that particular style as you  exercise leadership in a practice or health care organization setting.
  4. Discuss  any particular areas for improvement the assessments helped you  identify and some steps for improving your leadership capabilities.
  5. Analyze  the characteristics of an effective professional nurse leader, or  individuals in nursing leadership. Discuss the characteristics and  explain why they are effective for leadership in nursing.
  6. Analyze  different leadership theories and leadership styles. Select one theory  and leadership style, different from your own, and explain how they each  support a professional nurse leader or individual in nursing  leadership. Consider how the theory shapes the nurse leader in such  things as collaboration, conflict resolution, decision making, and  negotiation.
