Develop and submit a personal leadership philosophy that reflects what you think are characteristics of a good leader. Use the scholarly resources on leadership you selected to support your philosophy statement. Your personal leadership philosophy should include the following:

  • A description of your core values
  • A personal mission/vision statement
  • An analysis of your CliftonStrengths Assessment summarizing the results of your profile
  • A description of two key behaviors that you wish to strengthen
  • A development plan that explains how you plan to improve upon the two key behaviors you selected and an explanation of how you plan to achieve your personal vision. Be specific and provide examples.

My Clifton Strengths Assessment Results are below:

My StrengthsFinder assessment went in this order from one through five. 1). Achiever is a person that take great satisfaction from being busy and productive, 2). Includer is a person that shows awareness of those who feel left out and try to include them, 3). Consistency they try to treat people the same by setting up clear rules and adhering to them, 4). Positivity these people are upbeat and can get others excited about what they are going to do, and 5). Self-Assurance are people that can manage their own lives and possess an inner compass that gives them confidence that their decisions are right.

Two core values that I would like to work on is positivity and innovation. The reason I would like to change my positivity is because sometimes I’m not always positive about certain situations until I can see the bigger picture.  Innovation is another thing I would like to work on because I have ideas but sometimes never really follow up through with those ideas. Simple opportunities for improvement present themselves if we just maintain an open mind (Paige, 2016).

Two strengths that I would like to make stronger is the self-assurance and this is because I do doubt myself a lot even though it maybe something that I’m sure about. The other that I would love to strengthen is the relationship builder because I can really be bossy at time when I’m in a relationship. Nurses with high self-efficacy are more engaged in interprofessional collaboration (Costanzo et al., 2019).

Two characteristics that I would like to improve on is to have more patience with my co-workers because I tend to not have a lot of patience when it comes to dealing with situations that I think is unnecessary. The other one that I know I need to improve is being more approachable and that may sometimes have to do with my facial expressions that people think that I’m not approachable. Being your best self means playing to your strengths at work and everywhere else (Gallup, 2019)
