Reflect on your current leadership strengths and areas of potential growth and create a personal development plan in a 6-9-page paper.
Introduction Before one can begin to lead other people, they must first understand themselves, especially their strengths and weaknesses. For this assessment, you will have an opportunity to explore the concept of competency-based reflection.
The ACHE Healthcare Executive Competency Tool will be a key component towards completing your assessment. This tool was developed by the Healthcare Leadership Alliance (HLA), which is comprised of six member organizations: American College of Healthcare Executives. American Association of Physician Leadership. American Organization of Nurse Executives. Healthcare Financial Management Association. Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society. Medical Group Management Association.
This collaborative effort between both clinical and administrative organizations suggests the importance and applicability of the tool across professions (Garman & Johnson, 2006). The ACHE Healthcare Executive Competency Tool attempts to define the health care field by using five competency domains: communication and relationship management, leadership, professionalism, knowledge of the health care environment, and business skills and knowledge (Garman & Johnson, 2006).
