Leadership Action Plan

Now is your time to show everything you have learned in RLA through your Leadership Action Plan.  It is time to think about how you are going to utilize your strengths in school, work, with your families, and in your community.

Step One: List your top 5 strengths (Be sure to read through and refresh on your original results).  

Step Two: Choose a domain on which to focus: Home, School, Work, or your Community. 

Step Three: Think about the following questions:

  • What do you plan to accomplish in your chosen domain?
  • How are you going to utilize each of your strengths to accomplish this goal?
  • How are you going to leverage your strengths to meet the four basic needs (trust, compassion, stability, hope) of your followers as you work towards your goal?  Please note, depending on your chosen domain, your followers may include employees, peers, family members, community members, etc.  

Step Four: Create your PowerPoint presentation!  Please be as creative as you'd like to be, while ensuring you fulfill the stated requirements for the LAP.  Please see the rubric below to ensure adherence to the requirements.
Your presentation should be limited to 5 minutes due to time constraints. Please be aware that once we reach the 5 minute mark we will transition to the next presenter.  With this in mind, please practice your presentation prior to this meeting to ensure you stay within the 5 minute timeframe. 

Use this task as an opportunity to do some meaningful goal-setting based on what you've learned about yourself through RLA.  :)

Step Five: Submit your leadership action plan to
