Personal Leadership Reflection

Assessment 1

In a minimum of seven pages, discuss the five leadership domains assessed by the ACHE assessment tool. Then, reflect on your own leadership strengths and weaknesses and the qualities of a leader you have and those you have an opportunity to develop. Create a personal development plan with a timeline for developing your leadership skills.


Before one can begin to lead other people, one must first understand oneself, especially one’s strengths and weaknesses. For this assessment, you will have an opportunity to explore the concept of competency-based reflection. The ACHE Healthcare Executive 2021 Competencies Assessment Tool [PDF] will be a key component towards completing your assessment. This tool was developed from job analysis surveys conducted by the Healthcare Leadership Alliance (HLA), which is comprised of six member organizations, including the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), a professional organization of healthcare leaders. The ACHE competencies, along with your strengths and weaknesses, will be the foundation of this assessment.


Before you can begin to lead others, you must first understand yourself. You must understand your strengths so you can further develop those talents, and you must also understand your weaknesses so you can identify areas to improve. Both strengths and weaknesses should be included in a personal development plan.

The ACHE healthcare executive 2021 competencies assessment tool [PDF] is particularly important for this assessment. Complete the assessment tool if you haven’t completed it already, review the results, then analyze the results, and develop a personal leadership plan to set goals for the future.

The assessment tool is broken into five domains:

  • Communication and relationship management
  • Leadership
  • Professionalism
  • Knowledge of the healthcare environment
  • Business skills and knowledge


This assessment has two parts:

Use the APA Paper Template [DOCX] to write a 7–10 page paper that responds to the following:


  • Discuss the five leadership domains assessed by the ACHE assessment tool.
  • Determine strategies to develop your identified strengths and weaknesses for each of the five domains.
    • For each of the five domains, summarize both your strengths and your weaknesses.
    • For each domain, identify at least one resource you can use immediately to further develop your skills, for a total of five resources.
  • Describe qualities needed by leaders.
  • Analyze the qualities of a leader you have and the ones you need to develop.
    • From your readings and research, define the primary qualities needed by leaders and apply those qualities to your personal assessment.
    • Describe which qualities you possess and which qualities present opportunities for improvement.


  1. Create a 1-year personal development plan.
  • This plan should synthesize your assessment results with research you have completed.
  • Identify at least three things you would like to work on over the next year.
  1. Develop a timeline for your personal development plan with specific metrics to measure your progress.

One potential way to approach this part is to create a table to break the three goals into actionable steps after you have identified three things that you would like to work on. Your table should have the following four columns.

  • First column: Overall goals.
  • Second column: All the steps necessary to reach each goal.
  • Third column: How you will measure the progress toward each step.
  • Fourth column: The deadline for completing the steps.

An example of this table could be like this (your table will include three goals and each goal can have more than two steps):


Work-life balance.

Leave work by 5 p.m. daily.

  • Length: A minimum of seven double-spaced pages, not including title and reference pages.
  • Font and font size: Arial, 12 point.
  • References: Cite at least three references from peer-reviewed journals, in addition to your textbook.
  • Format: Use the APA Paper Template [DOCX] to write your paper using current APA style and formatting for the paper as well as for references and citations. Refer to Evidence and APA on Campus for more information. You may use first person for the portions of this paper where it is appropriate to do so.
