Assignment 2: Individual Power Plan

What can you do to develop your individual power base? This week, you have heard and read about several types and sources of power. For this Assignment, consider your goals and how enhancing your own power may help you to achieve them.


To Prepare

  • Reflect on your personal current sense of power within your organization and the profession;
  • Do a self–assessment of your leadership skills by doing the How Good are your Leadership Skills? assessment at http://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newLDR_50.htm

    • How did you score? You do need not to reveal this in your paper, but hopefully it will guide you in how to apply the concepts to your own situation.
  • Reflect on your motivation for increasing your power within your organization and/or within the nursing profession.
  • Do a self–assessment of your leadership motivation by doing the assessment The Leadership Motivation Assessment found at http://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newLDR_01.htm

    • Again, it is not necessary to post your score but hopefully it will guide you in how to discuss your motivation at this point in time.
  • Review the information on power in the Learning Resources and conduct additional research on your own to examine strategies that seem relevant and worthwhile for helping to enrich your power as a nurse leader.
  • Identify specific strategies you can use to develop and leverage sources and types of power to achieve desired outcomes.


To Complete

Write a 2– to 3–page paper, not including the cover and Reference page, describing:

  • A self–assessment of your current sense of power within your organization and the profession;
  • A self–assessment of your motivation for increasing your power base;
  • Write a detailed plan for enhancing your power as a nurse and a leader–manager, including specific strategies for achieving that plan.  Be sure to include strategies for mobilizing the power of nursing for social change, empowering others, and building a personal power base.


Reminder

The School of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, and references. The Sample Paper provided at the Walden Writing Center provides an example of those required elements (available at http://writingcenter.waldenu.edu/57.htm). All papers submitted must use this formatting.

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.
