Capstone Presentation Requirements

Your Capstone Presentation will be timed and must be 20-25 minutes in length.  You will deliver this presentation to the Program Manager and other peers familiar with the Fully Prepared to Lead program. Therefore, you will NOT need to use any of your time to explain the program.  At the Capstone Presentation, you will be given feedback on your presentation by the Program Manager and peer certificate participants.  You will also give feedback to the other peers during the session.

Your presentation must address the components listed below in no particular order.
Define what leadership means to you and how you can influence creating a Healthy, Inclusive,
and Engaging work environment.
o    What did you learn about your personal leadership style as a result of your participation in
the program?
o    What have you tried already? Did it work? What did you learn?
o    What have you already done to change or improve?  How do you know it’s working?  What
else are you going to do?
What feedback have you gotten from your manager and/or peers about your leadership style?
Which competency are you feeling most confident about? Least confident? Why?

To prepare for the presentation, consider the coaching conversations you had throughout the series, the classes you’ve taken, personal observations, what you’ve tried that has or has not worked, and or other observations or new ways of thinking as a result of participating in the series.

Community through respect & civility. Excellence through diversity. Success through learning.
