Cognitive Tools

Each Best Practice Module includes a Cognitive Tool.

The Cognitive Tool includes the main points of the leadership concept, implications for practice, instructions for applying in the workplace, and questions to evaluate how the practice worked. It is intended not only as a summary, but for quick reference when testing the concept and integrating the new skill/behavior into your practice.
