Health care leadership self-assessment (no plagiarism)

 

Professional Context

To remain relevant, health care leaders must regularly assess individual competencies relative to organizational strategy and mutual fit. Changing laws, regulations, technology, consumer preferences, medical treatment advances, and external environmental shifts can affect the skill sets needed for an effective leadership. An accurate self-assessment is the first step in the identification of potential gaps. The next step involves the development of an action plan to close those gaps. This process is consistent throughout the career of any health care leader.
