Values Based Leadership

Values-Based Leadership- The Individual

Definitions of values-based leadership typically involve the notion of leading from a place of self-reflection, consistency, and alignment. When leaders know, and are guided by, their own consistent set of beliefs, values, and work ethics, and those are aligned with an organization’s or enterprise’s values and mission, leadership tends to be more effective.

Values-Based Leadership- Expanding Beyond the Individual

Values-based leadership means to lead others by remaining consistent with the leader’s beliefs. It is based on the notion that personal and organizational values are aligned: a company’s mission, vision, strategy, performance measures, incentive programs, procedures, and values are all a representation of the leader’s ethics and values.

Assorted Rubrics

The Assorted Rubrics Tool provides a series of rubrics that assess Written Assignments, Group/Team Presentations, and Technical Reports. Instructors can also use these rubrics to assess appropriate Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs), relevant to their partnership with Serve-Learn-Sustain. The following rubrics are adaptable for various types of assignments or projects you may have in your course.

For written assignments, the Written Assignments Rubric is useful for focusing on aspects such as rhetorical awareness, stance, development of ideas, and organization. Additionally, we’ve included 3-4 SLOs that are most common in written assignments; however, any of the nine SLOs included on the SOLO Taxonomy Rubric may be assessed.
