Assignment Prompt Applying the principles from the Nursing Leadership and Health Policy learning modules students will explore the role of the Registered Nurse Leader in policy advocacy. Groups of two to three students will create a policy challenge presentation with a focus on collaboration. All members must participate to earn points. Each group member will receive an individual grade for the assignment and will participate in a rated peer evaluation of each group member. The final grade for each student will be based upon the presentation and peer evaluations and determined by the course professor. The course professor will randomly assign students to a group and post the assigned groups and student names in a course announcement in week one. Contact peers in your assigned group by university email in week one to begin planning and collaborating on the project between weeks one and seven. Directions: Interview a nurse leader from a professional nursing organization to collect ideas for the project. Utilize your readings, research and resources to build the content. This should be a collaborative team process. Divide the workload for the project in an equitable manner among team members. Each group will design a voice- narrated Powerpoint or Prezi to create a presentation and provide an overview of a grassroots policy challenge (present or past) that the identified organization supports. The policy challenge can be a local, state or federal policy issue. Create a title slide or page with the full names of each group member. Include a final slide or page with key references cited in APA 6th ed. format. Each presentation should be between 5-10 minutes in length. Rehearse and time the presentation in advance to ensure that the 10-min. time limit is not exceeded. One person from each assigned group will post the group signature assignment for his/her group as an attachment in the week seven discussion forum on or before Day 3, Week 7. Each team member will submit his or her group powerpoint presentation individually (link below) in the D2L assignment upload box for grading. Each presentation will need to include (but is not limited to): Brief description of the policy challenge the team has chosen and the nursing association that was identified. Describe the ?Agenda? for the identified policy challenge. Include how the policy issue was identified, (Did the organization complete a review of the literature, an environmental scan and/or a SWOT analysis, etc.?) Brief description of key stakeholders (those who will be affected and those who can effect change),ie, interest groups, opposition groups/individuals or coalitions. List the different strategies that the organization plans to or has already used to inform/lobby legislators, ie, e-mail campaign, in-person visit, testimony, protest, etc. List and describe any non-legislative strategies that were used or plan to be used to support the initiative. Describe where this policy challenge is in the legislative process and its implications for the future. Expectations
Instructions You are the district manager of a luxury watch producer, and sales have been steadily declining. You hold a meeting with your production and sales staff to attempt to identify the reasons for the decline, and the following reasons are offered for the decreased sales: slow economy, so no one is buying watches of any kind; salespeople are not provided adequate resources to properly market the watches; the quality of the watches has declined to the point that people do not want to buy them; the supply chain is unable to keep up with orders, so deliveries are slow, and customers are cancelling orders; the financial manager does not like the marketing department, so we cannot trust the numbers he produces; and the marketing manager should just get rid of the salespeople who are not able to hit the established sales targets. Given this scenario, answer the following questions. Discuss strategies for examining claims for legitimacy or fallacy. It is not necessary to address all six bullet points above, but clearly identify which are being discussed. [Learning Outcome 4.1] Identify any potential fallacies in logic that might inhibit creative thinking. [Learning Outcome 4.2] Develop strategies for creatively overcoming identified fallacies. [Learning Outcome 4.3] Formulate your response to these questions using APA style, and include at least two outside sources; your paper must be a minimum of three pages. The textbook may be used, but since it is part of the course, it will not be counted as one of your two outside sources. Please use the library databases to find academic journals to use as your sources.
To begin your discussion, take a few moments and introduce yourself to your peers by providing a brief description of your hobbies, special interests, or other details to help us get to know you. Also, share your Ashford University degree program and your future career goals. You might revisit the goals you set in previous courses.Additionally, read chapter 1, and answer the six true-false statements on your beliefs about interpersonal communication on page 3. Once you have completed the quiz, consider the following:How important is interpersonal communication? We have been communicating with others throughout our lives. We have casual conversations at work or the grocery store, in-depth conversations with friends or family, and interactions that include communication throughout much of our day. How do you use communication skills in your actions with others? Are there ever times when communication goes awry? Does communication just mean your use of words? What other things might be communicated beyond the content of your words? How might your culture, assumptions, or beliefs affect the way in which you communicate? How important would it be to communicate clearly when working in health and human services?Reflect- Think about your own beliefs and assumptions about interpersonal communication, especially as they relate to working with people in human services.In addition to writing about yourself in your introduction, please respond to one of the two following sets of questions:Think about characters in television dramas or sitcoms that you have watched. What are some examples of effective communication (verbal and non-verbal) that you have observed? What are some examples of ineffective communication?Think about a time when you had to communicate with someone else. What are some examples of effective communication (verbal and non-verbal) that you engaged in? Conversely, what are some examples of ineffective communication you have engaged in? What were the consequences of this miscommunication?DeVito, J. A. (2016). The interpersonal communication book (14th ed.).

Think about an experience you had where you felt extremely motivated. In a 3- to 4-page paper, analyze this experience according to the experiential format below. Each subtitle represents a different section of the paper. You can use the subtitles as headings. Introduction: Discuss the topic of the paper and how you will approach it. It is best to write this section after you have written the rest of the paper. The Experience: Begin with a specific situation/event. Describe the experience where you felt extremely motivated. Be objective and focus on just the facts: who, what, where, when, and how. Reflection: Reflect upon that experience from the multiple perspectives of other people involved or affected in the experience. Step back from the situation, look at the experience from your own viewpoint, and the viewpoints of other parties involved or affected. Look at the circumstances surrounding the experience from every relevant perspective. Why was the experience motivating to you? What did others do that increased your motivation? Was the situation (or would the situation) also be motivating to others? (Note: Your discussion of theories and models from your module materials belongs in the following section.) Abstract Conceptualization: [Important: This Abstract Conceptualization section is the ?heart? of your paper. Use critical thinking skills to understand and interpret the experience at a deeper, more generalizable level. Interpret and understand the events you have described by drawing on the concepts, theories, and models in the background material from this module. What behavior patterns can you identify in yourself and others that are similar to the ones described in the material on motivation, values, and/or goals? How do these concepts and principles explain why you were motivated? What general principles of motivation can you derive from this analysis? Apply at least three concepts, theories, and/or models and cite all references to concepts and ideas that you use from sources. Be sure to cite all references to concepts, ideas, and quotes you use that come from any outside source. Experimentation: Identify ways to respond to the next occurrence of a similar experience. How are you going to put what you have learned to use? How will you use this knowledge to motivate yourself and others? What actions will you take to create a work environment that is motivating? Conclusion: Sum up the main points of your analysis and the key learnings you are taking from it. Reference List: List all references that you have cited in the paper using APA formatting. References include materials from the required background readings as well as any outside Internet or library sources you used in researching and writing your paper. If you have APA questions, refer to the optional listings on the Background page. Assignment Expectations Your paper will be evaluated using the criteria as stated in the Case grading rubric. The following is a review of the rubric criteria: ? Assignment-Driven: Does the paper fully address all aspects of the assignment? Is the assignment addressed accurately and precisely using sound logic? Does the paper meet minimum length requirements? ? Critical Thinking: Does the paper demonstrate graduate-level analysis, in which information derived from multiple sources, expert opinions, and assumptions has been critically evaluated and synthesized in the formulation of a logical set of conclusions? Does the paper address the topic with sufficient depth of discussion and analysis? ? Business Writing: Is the essay logical, well organized and well written? Are the grammar, spelling, and vocabulary appropriate for graduate-level work? Are section headings included? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of responding, or is justification/support instead conveyed through excessive use of direct quotations? ? Effective Use of Information: Does the submission demonstrate that the student has read, understood and can apply the background materials for the module? If required, has the student demonstrated effective research, as evidenced by student?s use of relevant and quality (library?) sources? Do additional sources used provide strong support for conclusions drawn, and do they help in shaping the overall paper? ? Citing Sources: Does the student demonstrate understanding of APA Style of referencing, by inclusion of proper citations (for paraphrased text and direct quotations) as appropriate? Have all sources (e.g., references used from the Background page, the assignment readings, and outside research) been included, and are these properly cited? Have all sources cited in the paper been included on the References page? Module 1 – Background MANAGING INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOR Required Sources Values, Attitudes, and Perceptions Often, we assume that the way we perceive and experience the world is the same way other people do. This assumption is false and can lead to ineffective leader and manager behaviors. Understanding how attitudes and perceptions influence individual behavior and performance at work is important to organizational study. Read how personality, values, perceptions, and attitudes affect work behaviors. Luthans, F., Luthans, K. W., & Luthans, B. C. (2015). Chapter 5: Personality, perception, and employee attitudes.

Many people believe that a happy worker is a productive worker, but research tells us that people can be highly satisfied with their jobs and still not get much done! Nevertheless, organizations have reasons to care about employees’ satisfaction with their jobs.
