Write responses (4-5 pages) to behavioral-based interview questions about leadership as part of the preparation for an interview for an HIM leadership position. Write an additional reflection paper (2 pages) that assesses the response to a leadership challenge against Kouzes and Posner’s five practices of exemplary leadership.
As a HIM professional, how will you respond to rapid, constantly evolving changes in the U.S. health care system? How will you stay motivated and contribute to the goals for a well-functioning health care system? The answers to questions such as these revolve around leadership and management, regardless of whether you are an individual contributor or someone who has actual responsibility for leading and managing others.
The ability to manage and lead oneself and others is important in every career, organization, sector, community, and country. The U.S. health care system requires much extraordinary work to be done. In the words of renowned transformational leadership theorists, Kouzes and Posner, “We need more exemplary leaders, and we need them now more than ever (2013).”
In this final course assessment, you are to assume that all of your hard work in your courses has paid off. You have scored an interview for an HIM leadership position with one of the health care organizations on your short list of preferred employers. You have done your homework. You have carefully researched the organization and located colleagues in your network who have worked there or who are currently working there. You have learned that this organization has adopted a behavioral-based interviewing approach. With this approach, employers ask questions that require candidates to relate examples from their experience of when they have demonstrated the key competencies required for a leadership position.
