CAPELLA FPX 8002 Assessment 3 Instructions: Personal Leadership Portrait


Create an 8-10-page personal leadership portrait that reflects an in-depth assessment of your leadership skills and abilities.

Leadership may be one of the defining factors in influencing organizational culture. Leadership impacts quality of care and addresses the well-being and development of employees and those served. In health care, successful leadership is aligned with ensuring access to care, safety and quality of care, affordability, ethical practice, and creating a culture of inclusion that honors diversity.

The research reports a link between type of leadership and outcomes such as patient satisfaction, organizational performance, staff well-being, engagement, longevity in the field, and quality of care (West, Armit, Loewenthal, Eckert, West, & Lee, 2015). Effective leaders and their organizations deliver high quality and compassionate care that meets the needs of the population served.

The health care environment is complex, requiring leadership that is collaborative and embraces interprofessional communication and ethical practices. Leaders in the field must have a good understanding of the emerging health care market, be passionate about meeting the needs of the population served, and act as change agents, inspiring and motivating others in an organization that provides quality services at an affordable cost.

It is essential for leaders to be well versed in a range of areas (practice, research, education) as a means of effective engagement with interprofessional communities. Effective leaders have heightened awareness of self and leadership styles, leading to professional growth, career advancement, and the ability to develop ethical leaders for the future across fields of practice (nursing, health administration, public health).

This assessment provides an opportunity for you to create a portrait of the effective health care professional and leader you aspire to be.
