Personal Leadership Vision and Self-Efficacy Plan

Paper Structure and Outline:

  1. Introduction
  2. Personal Vision Statement – What is your vision for your future as a social worker?
    Remember a vision statement is not a specific goal. A vision is more of a philosophical
    statement about how you want to be or the kind of change you want to affect as a leader,
    without knowing specifically how you are going to accomplish it. Think of MLK’s “I
    have a dream” speech. He had a vison about how the world could be but not a specific
    plan about how to accomplish the vision.
  3. Short Term (ST) Goals (1-3): Include 2-3 specific ST goals that you will need to
    accomplish to start to realize your vision. How and what steps and actions must you take
    to achieve the goals that will make your vision a reality? What strength/s will this goal
    help you to strengthen or develop? What are the networks/relationships and resources
    that you will need to cultivate to accomplish these goals? Include specific implementation
    time frames (dates you will have each goal accomplished by).
  4. Intermediate Term (IT) Goals (3-5 years): Include 2-3 specific IT goals that you will need
    to accomplish to start to realize your vision. How and what steps and actions must you
    take to achieve the goals that will make your vision a reality? What strength/s will this
    2
    goal help you to strengthen or develop? What are the networks/relationships and
    resources that you will need to cultivate to accomplish these goals? Include specific
    implementation time frames (dates you will have each goal accomplished by).
  5. Long-term (LT) goals (5-10 years or more): Include 1-2 specific LT goals that you will
    need to accomplish to start to realize your vision and describe at least one potential
    achievement you would like to attain in the field. How and what steps and actions must
    you take to achieve the goals that will make your vision a reality? What strength/s will
    this goal help you to strengthen or develop? What are the networks/relationships and
    resources that you will need to cultivate to accomplish these goals? Include specific
    implementation time frames (dates you will have each goal accomplished by).
  6. Conclusion – In addition to summarizing the main ideas you shared throughout the paper
    please also, identify what might be the challenges faced as a male, female, or transgender
    person, or a person of color, or in a female dominated profession, in accomplishing your
    goals and in realizing your vision. How would you plan to confront these challenges?
    What Knowledge, Skills and Actions (KSAs) would you need to acquire and apply to
    overcome these challenges?
    Your plan should be strategic and represent a clear and thoughtful articulation of your
    development as a leader and a practitioner. Identify the areas for development clearly along
    with your vision and goals. State actions you need to take and activities you need to engage in to
    realize your aspirations. Each action plan should address implementation and include time
    frames. Make your plan as realistic as possible.
