3. Leadership and the Need for Evidence and Innovation- PowerPoint Presentation


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?
