Strengths-Based Leadership Strategies
In most organizations and programs today, leaders are acutely aware of the limitations that political, bureaucratic, organizational, and training challenges place on effective service delivery and effective interagency collaboration.
Based on the reading about a strengths-based focus for leadership and supervision, in your initial post, examine how you would leverage strengths in building a coalition to pursue important community objectives. Describe how you have used a strengths-based approach or have observed the use of a strengths-based approach in a project within your organization or community.
Read the posts of the other learners and respond to the initial posts of two. In each response, compare insights from your own observations of strengths-based practices to the reflections of the other learner.
This activity will help you achieve the following learning components:
- Examine how a leadership philosophy shapes service delivery in a human services organization.
- Identify leadership skills relevant in human services organizations.
