The strengths-to-strategy plan (from the Week 1 interactive) formulates a plan to guide leadership development. The CV provides the professional foundation for the DNP portfolio through documentation of professional and academic accomplishments. The action plan addresses gaps or developmental opportunities in the CV while applying strategies from the strength-to-strategy plan. The strengths-to-strategy plan, professional CV, and developmental action plan contribute to the student’s professional development of skills and competencies relevant to the DNP scholar as a leader.

Strengths-to-Strategy Plan

Leadership Strengths

Servant leader: Having the responsibilities of service to others and recognize that the role of organizations is to create people who can build a better tomorrow. Strengths-based leader: I strive to empower workers’ strengths rather than identify problems. Task-oriented leader: I would spend time to explain expectations and I reward good performance, correct departures from expectations, and I would attempt to prevent future problems.

Leadership Opportunities

1. Unmasking my weakness 2. Learning from my failures 3. Appreciate feedbacks. 4. Listen to those with more experience 5. Refuse to settle for mediocrity

Turning Opportunities into Strengths

1. Understanding my leadership style will opens the door for building managerial skills in harmony with my true nature. With a sense of where I fall in leadership style categories, I will be better equipped to develop leadership skills. 2. Setting concrete goals and executing them. Formulating the right plan and setting meaningful benchmarks along the way gives me a map to follow, a methodology that will guide me through my tasks. 3. Admit when I fail and move on. When I recognize an error, I should admit it openly and take action to correct it. I should be open about your failures; discuss them with myself/with your team and earn from them. 

Leveraging Others’ Strengths

Listening to those that I work with and examining and adopting their good skills/strengths that I may lack. Being supportive and engaging with others.
