Choosing a Leadership Style
Human service and public service leaders determine, develop, and maintain an organizational culture that can best meet the expectationsâ€”if not thriveâ€”in the external environment.
In this assignment, choose the leadership style that best fits you, and translate your leadership style into action by writing a paper in which you analyze how your own vision, mission, and values relatesâ€”or do not relateâ€”to the continuum of care services you identified in Unit 2.
Complete the following three parts.
Part 1: Select a Leadership Style
From the list below, choose the leadership style that best fits you personally:
You will have to look up information on each of the leadership styles above; the Capella University Library’s Summon search engine is a good starting point. Peer-reviewed articles may provide information on the leadership styles as part of the introduction to a study, but you may also have to use other scholarly sources, such as textbooks, dictionaries, and so on. Note that transformational leadership is not an option; this is an opportunity for you to learn about other leadership styles.
Part 2: Explain Your Leadership Style
Complete the following:
- Define the leadership style you chose and explain why you chose it.
- Explain how you can use this leadership style to improve one major problem area in the long-term care continuum. Address how this leadership style addresses ethical dilemmas related to this problem area. Support your work with academic references.
Part 3: Develop Your Personal Mission, Vision, and Values Statements
Complete the following:
- Design your personal vision, mission, and values statements related to the long-term continuum of care.
- Using the continuum of care services you identified in your Unit 2 assignment, provide a brief summary of the vision, mission, and values of the organization that offers the services.
- Compare and evaluate how your personal vision, mission, and values fit or do not fit within this organization.
- Include a title page and reference page.
- Writing should be free of grammatical errors that detract from the overall message. Writing should be clear, concise, and well organized.
- Use a minimum of 8 scholarly and professional resources to support your work.
- Follow APA guidelines throughout.
- Use Times New Roman font, 12-point.
- Your paper should be 6â€“8 pages, double-spaced.
