Health Care Leadership Self-Assessment


Assess the development of your health care leadership competencies over the course of your MHA program, using a STAR Format Competency Rating Table. There is no page limit for this assessment.

This assessment is in two parts:

Part 1: Leadership Self-Assessment.
You will assess the development of your leadership skills over the course of your MHA program.
Part 2: Personal Development Plan.
You will identify measurable action steps for future career development. Review the NCHL Health Leadership Competency Model and STAR Format Competency Rating Table documents, linked in the Resources of this unit. (Note: There are 26 total competencies listed in the NHCL Competency Model. You will need to assess 19 of the 26 NHCL competencies, as they are listed in the STAR Format Competency Rating Table.)
Part 1: Leadership Self-Assessment
Complete a self-assessment of your health leadership competencies. Use the STAR Format Competency Rating Table, linked in the Resources of this unit, to record your assessment. Instructions for filling in the table are included in the document.

Note: The requirements outlined below correspond to the first four grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your self-assessment addresses each point, at a minimum. You may also want to read the Health Care Leadership Self-Assessment Scoring Guide to better understand how each criterion will be assessed.

Assess personal progress toward developing NCHL health leadership competencies.
Describe specific examples of how you have demonstrated NCHL health leadership competencies, with the intent of improving health care outcomes.
Provide the most current, relevant examples of how you have demonstrated these skills in the past, preferably in the health care and human services industry.
Consider, if you do not have experience in health care or human services, how you may have demonstrated these skills in a different industry or setting, a previous job, volunteer work, or other courses here at Capella. You may consider the following as examples:
You assumed a role on a strategic marketing team for a client organization and demonstrated analytical thinking, strategic orientation, and organizational awareness.
You demonstrated an information-seeking attitude and self-confidence during a health policy team debate on HIPAA.
You demonstrated financial skills, performance measurement, and human resource management when conducting a health care quality cost-benefit analysis.
Evaluate the outcomes of demonstrated health leadership that illustrate NCHL competencies.
Reflect upon personal, community, volunteer, academic teamwork, and workplace experience in which you have demonstrated each competency.
Determine how, if asked, you would justify your evaluation.
Analyze personal health leadership competencies.
Reflect upon your baseline and current competency levels.
Explain any new insights from your competency assessment.
Discuss, based on this assessment, what career development steps you might take in the future.
Part 2: Personal Development Plan
Reflect upon any insights for future workplace relevance that you have gained during your capstone project, obstacles that you may have encountered, and the strategies you employed to overcome them. Then, formulate a 1–2-page personal development plan that bridges the transition from your academic studies to leadership development strategies for future career advancement.

ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS: Assignment: Health Care Leadership Self-Assessment 5 of 5


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.


Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
