My Leadership SMART Goal:
The purpose of this assignment is to develop a SMART-formatted goal related to your professional
leadership applicable to your current practice setting or future leadership aspirations. This goal is
about YOUR leadership development, not those of the organization or the department where you work. Many
organizations have developed the SMART-goal framework as they strive for performance improvement. Your
goal may tie to one of the departmental or organizational SMART goals but the components of the goal
are about YOUR leadership development The Institute of Medicine’s quality initiative has identified
five core healthcare profession competencies. This assignment focuses on only two of those initiatives.
Either Patient-Centered Care or Working in Interdisciplinary and/or Interprofessional Teams will serve
as a framework for identification of YOUR leadership SMART goal.
