Portfolio Presentation Beverly J. Cobb Leadership Program Ph.D. Candidate
The Journey to Competency A “journey” is any course or passage from one stage or experience to another. “Competency” is a condition or quality of being well qualified, capable, or fit.
The Journey to Competency as An effective teacher/instructor A dynamic change agent An effective organizer A collaborative consultant A reflective researcher A competent scholar
An Effective Teacher what I did “Teacher of the Year” – 1977 Jr. level Mentoring/Coaching Communication Seminars
An Effective Teacher what I learned (the highlights!) Teaching reflects one’s personhood. A spirit of service is essential for good teaching. The subject content is the common bond between learner and teacher. To learn about learning is more important than content. Teachers must model learning. Learning builds on prior experiences. Constructivism is my preferred learning theory. I prefer collaborative learning environments where students seek their personal best. I am a better-than-average classroom teacher, but I teach best one-on-one.
An Effective Teacher who influenced my learning? Parker Palmer Malcolm Knowles Chip Bell Frederic Hudson Maryellen Weimer The Leadership Faculty
A Dynamic Change Agent what I did New wage and benefit structure for faculty Discontinuance of evening nursing program Initiation of new nursing curriculum Change through C CC Crises EMEM PR for New BSHP Program
A Dynamic Change Agent what I learned (the highlights!) Change requires leadership. Leaders both envision and execute change. Establishing a sense of urgency is the leader’s role. Gathering the right people to help form the vision and advance the change is crucial. Involving key constituents enhances successful change. Wounding can facilitate positive change. Every person contributes to the public relations endeavors of an organization. Leaders self-manage, are teachable, and learn from failure.

An Effective Organizer what I did Committees, Committees, Committees Cross Training Self study and site visits OBNnln FTE’s
An Effective Organizer what I learned (the highlights!) Meetings can be effective. Leadership and management are different. A leader must also know how to execute. Beginning with the end in mind is essential. Good people selection & assignment matter. Clear, coherent writing skills help enormously. Effective organizing always advances the M-V-V.

A Collaborative Consultant what I did Program evaluator NLN A. P. I. E. Communicate with Impact!!
A Collaborative Consultant what I learned (the highlights!) An effective team is a beautiful thing. Emotional intelligence skills often surpass intellectual talent for professional success. Focus and clarity vastly improve communication. Stay connected when in crisis & dispel secrets. Communicate thoughts, feelings, & rationale. Learn to ask good questions. Data is necessary only to the extent it is used. Speaking and writing facilitate discovery. Self-awareness is necessary for good decision-making.
A Collaborative Consultant who influenced my learning? Warren Bennis Ken Davis Edwin Friedman Gloria Gaither Daniel Goleman Bill Hybels Patrick Lencioni John Katzenbach & Douglas Smith
A Reflective Researcher what I did Master’s Research Computers in Statistics Applied Statistics Introductory Statistics Statistical Analysis and Research Design Advanced Educational Statistics Qualitative Research Spiritual formation Nursing care Students Doctoral Research
A Reflective Researcher what I learned (the highlights!) Statistical information grows stale and is forgotten if not used. The research question determines the method. Coherence of the research problem, purposes, questions, methods, and instrument is vital. Research is a vibrant and challenging process of discovery. Personal integrity of the researcher is crucial to the research process. Good research is improved by good writing.

A Competent Scholar what I did READ REFLECT REPORT
A Competent Scholar what I learned (the highlights!) Begin early to integrating theory to practics. Find someone to partner with in scholarly learning. Preserve one key “take-away” from each reference to change a leadership practice or challenge how you think about something. Use a dictionary when necessary. Read several conflicting perspectives about an issue. Write notes or mark up the book to lock in key concepts and ideas.
