****The use of your own organization for this assignment is recommended (You can change the name). You may also use another organization in which you have sufficient knowledge. This assignment will not be shared with anyone and will remain confidential. The idea for this assignment is to apply, compare and contract what you have learned thus far, with your current organization.****
The purpose of this assignment is two-fold: (1) to evaluate your organization with respect to the dominant leadership style utilized in pursuit of success, and (2) to apply what you have learned about leadership theories in order to recommend improvements.
The first part of this assignment requires you to apply the leadership theories presented in this course from your readings and our discussions about the application of the Big Three leadership styles in Healthcare [transactional leadership, transformational leadership, and servant leadership]. Herein, you need to describe your organizations effectiveness in relationship to its leadership.
Unfortunately, some leaders lose their way to the extent that their actions do not remotely connect with their self-perceived leadership style. Others, craft their leadership styles around actions and things they value, but not the organizational values or goals. The question you need to answer is: How does the performance of the organizations leadership align with the organizations goals?
The second part of this assignment is to propose ways to better connect or improve the relationship between the leadership styles utilized and the overall performance of your organization. At times, framing this second section within the context of a particularly challenging and persistent organizational problem or shortcoming is helpful.
****Remember, in order to be successful, youll need to provide some background information about your organization such as:
-a profile of your organization [its vision, mission, goals and structure].
-the organizational model and leadership styles
-the actions of leaders, along with a comparison to the organizations vision.
-existing judgments about the vision and performance of the organization (This may require crafting of a new vision upon your critique and recommended improvements)

Your opinion is influential, but only so far as you have factual information and scholarly theories/research to inform your critique/evaluation. It should be written in current APA style utilizing the provided APA submission Word.doc Template for completion. You should utilize the level III newspaper-headline style headings at the beginning of paragraphs with new topics (see template).
