designing goals and objectives, to take into account leadership and technological changes that are occurring in the profession of social work.
For this assignment, learners develop an action plan that includes two goals for each content area identified in the Unit 8 assignment, at least two objectives related to each goal, and metrics used to evaluate the effectiveness and achievement of each goal. Learners use the principles related to developing SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, time-limited) goals and objectives. It is important, when designing goals and objectives, to take into account leadership and technological changes that are occurring in the profession of social work.
For this assignment, develop your action plan specifically to improve upon your leadership and supervisory skills.
Begin your work for this assignment by reflecting on your Unit 8 assignment where you reviewed the text, articles, additional resources, and used several NASW resources to develop your model of best practices in social work supervision and leadership skills with a theoretical foundation. You then completed a self-reflection of your strengths and areas for development in these content areas:
Developing effective organizational and interpersonal communication skills.
Managing time and tasks effectively.
Managing different personalities and conflict.
Hiring, performance evaluation, disciplinary action, and termination.
Maintaining ethics, confidentiality, and liability.
Practicing professional development, self-care, personal reflection, and self-correction.
Developing and managing an effective culturally competent practice including organizational culture and environment.
Being a collaborative leader in training supervisees in the effective use of technology.
As you prepare the written paper for this Unit 10 assignment, use the following guide.
Create an evidence-based action plan.
Use the eight categories identified above as subheadings in Section 1 of your paper.
To aid in your development of this assignment, use the multimedia piece on SMART goals from this unit’s study activity, as well as your text, course readings, new articles you have reviewed, and other internet resources including (but not limited to) NASW Best Practice Standards for Social Work Supervision, the NASW, ASWB, CSWE & CSWA Standards for Technology in Social Work, and the NASW Code of Ethics. These resources will be helpful as you complete your assignment.
Apply critical thinking in the development of goals, objectives, and metrics for each content area, including leadership and technological change in advanced generalist practice.
Under each subheading, you create:
Two SMART goals for each content area in the Unit 8 assignment, and also listed in this activity.
Identify at least two SMART objectives to aid your achievement of each goal.
Identify the metrics you select as a way of evaluating the effectiveness and achievement of each goal. Be sure you choose evaluation methods that help you determine degree of change (improvement or decline) and easily identifies if the goal is met.
