Strong leadership is important in the strategic planning process. The ability to lead and collaborate with a team to create a shared mission, vision, and plan to guide decision making can directly contribute to the success of a public health initiative. In a 250-word reflection, discuss the following:
1. Thinking about your group’s collaboration, how would you rate your success in applying the principles of leadership, governance, and management in the creation of your vision and mission and in the decision-making process used to create your action plan? Provide a specific example that illustrates how your team performed effectively and a second example that illustrates an opportunity for improvement in team collaboration.
