Implementing the change process reflection Journal
Implementing the Change Process Reflection
Again, self-assessment and self-awareness are very important tools/concepts in leadership and in nursing. Here is another opportunity for you to assess yourself in specific areas, reflect, and plan for growth. Remember, even if you are in a good place, there is always room to grow and expand your knowledge and abilities. 🙂
For this assessment, you will complete the reading for the lesson. Specifically, look also at page 304-307 and the IHI lesson mentioned.
Like the previous self-assessment assignments throughout the course, we will use reflective journaling. Gibbs’ Reflective Model (1988), provides our framework. Gibbs’ reflective cycle has 6 stages. Please reflect on each stage below:
- Description: What are the two types of change (in the text)? Describe in your own words, at least one theory for change (also in the text).
- Feelings: Do you like to lead change? Or, help with change in more of a follower stance?
- Evaluation: What attributes or responsibilities of a change agent do you possess? Which of the errors mentioned by Kotter (2017) have you contributed to? What is your experience in collective action, what roles have you played?
- Analysis: Are you able to positively impact change implementation? If you have been involved in collective action, was it effective?
- Conclusion: Explain your strengths and weaknesses in relation to change.
- Action Plan: What strategies could you implement to improve your change agent attributes? How can you reduce the incidence of errors in the change process (Kotter, 2017)? How can you apply a change theory in your practice? (Use the text materials here.) How can you get more involved in collective action in your workplace or your profession?
