Assessment 3
Worth: 50%
Due: Thursday 23 May 2024, 11.59pm AWST
Developing competence for practice requires a range of skills and attributes. To that end we would like you to prepare for professional practice
by completing a number of reflective activities which will help you to consolidate your learning. Reflection can help you make sense of situations
and concepts and enhance your self-awareness. Reflective practice enables you to integrate theory with practice through consciously thinking
about events, activities or new knowledge and concepts. There are reflective models that you can use to help guide your answers. One
example of a reflective model tool is provided below (Gibbs Model).
This assessment requires you to address each of the 5 reflective questions/topics outlined below. This is a personal reflection of your
leadership development journey, filtered through the lens of organizational leadership frameworks. The purpose of the assignment is to reflect
upon your leadership development journey over the course of the unit. The assignment should provide analysis of your learning experience
illuminated by theory (which could be drawn from your academic studies and/or your own reading) and own practice from your work experience.
The aspects of leadership included could be either negative and or positive experiences. In your reflections you should consider your
views/beliefs/knowledge and what the implication may be for your future practice.
Each reflection question should be 500 words in total (+/- 10%)

Assessment 3 Reflections
Reflection 1 – leadership perspectives and definitions
Share your definition and reflective thoughts about your understanding of leadership and the impact on healthcare. Consider your
understanding of leadership in terms of the personal qualities of an effective leader; leadership in the context of the health system and
leadership as a social process.
Reflection 2 – Power and Influence
Reflecting on leadership, power and influence, think about the key stakeholder groups for health care and public health (hint: think about within
the health sector and outside the health sector) and discuss two of them in terms of their power and influence in the system and how this
influences the role of a leader.
Reflection 3 – Partnerships
Intersectoral partnerships have been highlighted as key for effective leadership, decision making and for implementing change in the
system. However, such partnerships remain challenging for a range of reasons. What are the key leadership considerations required of
individuals and organisations to develop, maintain and evaluate relationships, partnerships, networks and coalitions for effective leadership in
the health care setting or for public health action?
Reflection 4 – When Leaders Fail
Failure is a powerful source for know-how and understanding. It teaches you about survival, renewal and reinvention of yourself and the
organization you are leading and ultimately shapes you as a leader. Reflecting on a situation of failure (ideally your own), what did you learn
form that situation about yourself and how can you use that to shape your leadership style to be an effective leader.
Reflection 5 – Future Directions
Reflecting on the information learned and insights gained during this unit, think about how that can be applied to your daily life. How are going
to use new knowledge (leadership concepts and theories), how you are going to adopt new leadership skills, attitudes, and practices? Start by
outlining three key learnings form the semester and include what areas of leadership you will like to cultivate as you continue on your journey
of leadership development.
