The Introduction sets the scene or outline for everything that follows in your leadership portfolio. It should be brief, but include relevant information on you, your career, your goals, and the contents of the portfolio. Remember this is a portfolio on leadership and you and is not a resume or job application.3. Leadership Statement or Philosophy Your Leadership Statement or Philosophy should be a narrative about how you view leadership and the philosophies/values/principles that guide you. This statement would be the starting point for developing your leadership portfolio.
You might talk about how you evolved leadership philosophy; how it may have changed over time; any important leaders you identify with and why/how those observations have shaped your thinking and views. A GUIDE is attached here to help you reflect about a philosophy, understanding or approach to leadership that you personally identify with. and Strategies In this course we have examined a number of different types and styles of leadership – in the Leadership Style and Strategies section you should set out your style of leadership. It might have changed over time etc. As a helpful prompt, you could consider being asked a question when applying for a job or wanting to be in a team or group –
“What is your leadership style and what can we expect from you in the way you go about leading?”. You MUST attach your essay/narrative (on motivation) in this section. 5. Leadership Competencies In Module 6 of our course we looked at competencies. In this Leadership Competencies section you might include information about your levels of experience and planned learning/development around problem solving skills; social judgement; and knowledge. You MUST attach your essay/narrative (on negotiation) in this section. 6. Leadership Experiences Under Leadership Experiences you have the opportunity to set our where you may have used your leadership skills. As a GUIDE you might use the attached suggestions as a format and ways of describing your experiences.
- Working With and Leading Teams Under Working With and Leading Teams you can describe your thoughts, experiences and plans about working and engaging with teams and groups to achieve your leadership goals. You MUST attach your essay/narrative (on team work) in this section. 8.

This might be about formal and informal learning; experiential learning;
inside and outside of the health system and health organisations and teams etc. and engaged in a number of case studies and activities during the course – some of these may provide useful material for inclusion in your portfolio?
