Leadership and the Change Process

Posted on Updated on

What examples of leadership have you seen in working with others at your practicum setting as well as in other situations? What have you observed that inspires you to be an effective leader? What challenges have you noticed? How does this relate to your personal leadership style? How can you, as a leader, facilitate the translation of evidence into practice? What leadership skills aid this process?

For this Discussion reflect on what makes a leader effective and how insights from theory as well as previous endeavors can be applied to planning for and implementing a change related to the translation of evidence into practice.

To prepare:

  • Consider      evidence-based changes currently underway or recently achieved in your      practicum setting. Analyze the practicum environment, examine data, and      refer to theory to identify a need for a change you would propose.
  • Reflect      on examples of how leadership influences the translation of evidence into      practice from within your practicum setting.
  • Identify      an evidence-based change appropriate for your practicum setting.
  • Think      of two or three instances that demonstrate how you have been able to—or,      if not applicable, how you could—apply leadership skills in your practicum      setting. Then, reflect on the results of your DiSC Assessment, completed      in NURS 8300. What strengths and/or challenges have you encountered, or      might you encounter based on your personal leadership style? In what ways      do you need to grow as a leader?

By tomorrow Wednesday 3/6/19 6 pm write a minimum of 550 words essay in APA format with at least 3 references (see list or required readings below). Include the level one headers as numbered below: 

Post a cohesive response that addresses the following:

1) Based on your practicum experiences, discuss the influence of leadership on the translation of evidence into practice. Provide specific insights gained from theory as well as from changes currently underway or recently achieved in your practicum setting.

2) Propose an evidence-based change for your practicum setting. Be sure to justify the need for this change using data.

3) Explain how you might apply theory as well as observations gathered from your practicum site to planning for and implementing the proposed change.
