The Community Action Plan

Although this is a global public health issue, I do want to include reference to the State of Kansas and specifically the City of Emporia (Kansas). This final also includes a PowerPoint presentation (which I’ve included in the total page count). I need a minimum of 4 pages (double spaced) and at least 8 slides on the PPT presentation. Please let me know if you are up to this challenge.Your Portfolio Project for this class is a Community Action Plan designed to alleviate or correct a public health issue in your community. Your community can be your business, school, neighborhood, town or city of residence or birth, or county. For Option #1, your Community Action Plan will be a professional portfolio that includes a written report and a slide presentation. Below are some useful sites where you can find examples of the elements of an action plan.http://www.epa.gov/communityhealth/http://www.cityofchicago.org/dam/city/depts/cdph/t…http://assets.thehcn.net/content/sites/arizona/MC_…Preliminary Deliverables: These deliverables must be submitted in the assigned week:Week 2: Written Response and Project Selection (20 points): Provide a one-paragraph response indicating which assignment option and public health issue you have selected and why. This will help your instructor to be aware of your plans and support you with development of this project. Upload your response as a Word document.Week 7: Preliminary Written Report and Peer Review Feedback (30 points) Submit a preliminary (rough) draft of the written portion of your portfolio project as well as proof of peer review. Remember to include the following sections: introduction, symptoms, diagnosis, prevention, cure and summary. Peer review feedback is also included in this assignment. Create a post that includes your written report as an attachment using the Portfolio Project Milestone discussion forum for peer review feedback. Provide feedback to at least one of your classmates. Choose a classmate with no other feedback first, to ensure that everyone receives some feedback from their peers. In this preliminary draft submission, indicate which project you responded to.Final Paper Instructions: The final case study should include four sections (Symptoms, Diagnosis, Cure, and Prevention). Each section should be about 1 page in length. Your entire paper must be 4-5 pages in length, not counting the title or reference pages, which must be included.You must cite and integrate at least 2 credible sources in each of the four sections of the paper. You may use readings other than the textbook to meet this requirement. The paper should be based on references to scholarly materials (rather than on introductory textbooks, popular website writings, or musings, for example) and should support your claims with evidence.Incorporate into this final plan any classmates’ critiques that you found useful as well as your instructor’s feedback.List the key community members or partners that you plan on contacting, with an explanation why these individuals or organizations make sense as potential partners. This could include your list of potential partners created in Week 4 Critical Thinking Assignment Option #1, or your interview of one key partner completed in Week 4 Critical Thinking Option #2.Include a special emphasis on either the demographics of the affected population or the economic implications, depending on what Critical Thinking assignment you completed for Week 5.Include a realistic timeline for your plan. Discuss the time needed for campaigning, education, funding, building, and implementation. Use ideas created during week 6 Critical Thinking Assignments, either the option for annotated bibliography or that for the brainstorming draft feedback.Refer to the Portfolio Project rubric for grading criteria.Final Instructions for Slide Presentation:The slide presentation describes the problem in your community and your action plan.Your presentation must be 8-10 slides in length, not counting the title and reference slides. Your presentation must be supported by at least two scholarly articles.You may use a web-based slide presentation software such as Prezi, for example, or you may use PowerPoint. If you use a web-based tool, include the URL to your presentation in a Word document and upload it with your presentation.The audience for this presentation will be community members or organizations you wish to educate about the public health issue and your proposed plan.The purpose of this slide presentation is to educate the audience about the issue. Keep in mind that in real life you will have limited time to convince people of the gravity of the situation and to come on board with their support, so you want to be persuasive and get to the key points quickly and effectively.Note: Be sure to submit both your written report and your slide presentation for this assignment. Both files should be uploaded in a single submission to the assignment submission page.The paper and preliminary deliverables must be well written and formatted in conformity with the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.Review the Sample PowerPoint Presentation.

THE CRASH OF LEHMAN BROTHERS:
THE PROBLEMS WITH RICHARD FULD & A LOOK INTO
THE LEADERSHIP OF KENNETH CHENAULT
HISTORY OF LEHMAN BROTHERS
?
?
?
Lehman Brothers was
founded by brothers Henry,
Emanuel, and Mayer
Lehman in 1850.
Henry set up a general store
in Montgomery, Alabama in
1844 and was later joined
by his brothers.
The firm moved to New York
City after the Civil War and
grew into one of Wall
Street’s investment giants.
(The New York Times, 2010)
If the entire page is from the
same source, you can put
the in-text citation at the
bottom of the slide.

LEHMAN BROTHERS
?
Lehman Brothers was a global financial services
firm which participated in:
investment banking;
? equity and fixed-income sales;
? research and trading;
? investment management;
? private equity; and
? private banking.
?
Source: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=a3m8E8E2l93A
?
Lehman Brothers grew to be the fourth-largest
investment bank in the United States.
(BBC News, 2008)
LEHMAN BROTHERS
The firm operated at a wholesale level, dealing
with governments, companies, and other
financial institutions.
? The firm employed 25,000 people worldwide.
? The firm was heavily invested in securities
linked to the U.S. Mortgage market.
?
(BBC News, 2008)
LEHMAN’S TRACK RECORD
?
Until June of 2008, Lehman Brothers had not reported a
quarterly loss even once.
?
The firm had survived many of our nation’s economic crises,
like the railroad bankruptcies of the 1800s, the Great
Depression in the 1930s, and the collapse of Long-Term
Capital Management in the 1990s.
?
The collapse of the giant investment bank came as a major
shock for the entire world markets that plunged after
Lehman filed a Chapter 11 petition with U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Manhattan.
(Sheern, 2008)
WHAT WENT WRONG?
?
?
?
?
Lehman Brothers was strangled
by a massive credit crisis and
fast plummeting real estate
prices.
The $60 billion loss in bad real
estate loans forced the bank to
file for bankruptcy.
The firm was hit by a large
dose of bad luck, pride,
arrogance, and greed.
Primarily, the pride and greed of
its chief executive officer
Richard Fuld.
(Sheern, 2008)
Source: http://news.monstersandcritics.com/business/features/article_1430965.php/In_photos_Lehman_Brothers_Files_for_Bankruptcy
LEADERSHIP PROBLEMS – CEO RICHARD FULD
?
?
?
The 62-year-old CEO did not take
the telltale signs of impending
doom very seriously.
He rejected many bids to save
Lehman because he thought his
bank was worth more than Wall
Street gave it credit for.
Fuld was nick-named “The Gorilla”
for his foul temper, intimidating
presence and tough talk.
(Sheern, 2008)
Source: Google images
CEO RICHARD FULD
If the information on your
slide is from various sources
you need to cite each bullet
with source.
?
Fuld’s testimony before the U.S. House Committee was shameless and
appalling. He blamed everyone but himself (Swaine, 2008).
?
Fuld faced angry questioning from the committee members. He was asked,
“Your company is now bankrupt, our economy is in crisis, but you keep $480
million. I have a very basic question for you, is that fair?” (Swaine, 2008,
para. 8).
?
From the years 1993 to 2007, Fuld is reported to have received nearly half a
billion dollars in total compensation. In 2007, Fuld was reported to have
been paid a total of $5,000,000, which included a base salary of $750,000
and a cash bonus of $4,250,000 (Story, 2009).
?
Fuld just sold his $13 million dollar Florida home to his wife for,
reportedly, $10 (Story, 2009).
?
CNN named Fuld as one of the “Ten Most Wanted: Culprits of the Collapse” of
the 2008 financial collapse in the United States (Rediff Business, 2009, p.
2, para. 4). Mr. Fuld has been accused of doing too little too late to save the
firm (Story, 2009).
LEADERSHIP PROBLEMS
?
There are four key internal biases that lead to poor
decision making:
?
?
?
?
?
?
?
Inappropriate prejudgments;
Inappropriate experience;
Self interest; and
Attachments.
Inappropriate experience is an attitude of “what worked
before will work again”.
Fuld was arrogant and refused to heed the warning signs
that bad business decisions lead to larger problems.
Fuld needed to take this opportunity to make hard
changes to the business and resisting risks would have
been supremely beneficial in this case.
(Boyle, 2008)
WOULD NEW LEADERSHIP HAVE HELPED THE
LEHMAN SITUATION?
The firm needed a leader who could set aside
his own pride for the sake of the company.
? The firm needed a leader who made wellthought out decisions and who evaluated risks.
? The firm needed a leader who could take a pay
cut when times got bad.
?
INTRODUCING KENNETH CHENAULT
Ken Chenault has been the CEO of
American Express since April 2001.
? He started at American Express in
1981 and progressed through
several different departments
before becoming CEO.
? Under Chenault, American Express
has maintained the highest market
capitalization of all global financial
services firms.
?
Source: Google images
(Chester, 2005)
HOW IS CHENAULT SO SUCCESSFUL?
?
Chenault explains his success, “Today’s
business climate reflects unprecedented levels
of uncertainty and change. Business models
have to change every three to four years and
leaders must have a long-term perspective that
focuses on structural flexibility and adaptation,
rather than the preoccupation with meeting
quarterly financial benchmarks,” (Chester,
2005, para. 2).
If you quote, don’t forget to
include the paragraph or
page number of where you
found the quote.
LEADERSHIP VALUES
?
?
?
?
Integrity: Chenault believes that integrity means a lot more
than just being honest. Integrity embodies consistency in
words and actions.
Courage: A leader must speak out and challenge others.
Chenault likes to surround himself with people who are
willing to question the status quo.
Positive Communication: Chenault believes a leader clearly
defines reality and gives hope.
Chenault urges leaders to realize that we must know who we
are and what we stand for. “If you don’t have strong values
and a sense of self,” he insisted, “you will fall off a cliff later
in your career” (para. 6).
(Chester, 2005.)
PERSONALITY
?
?
?
Being a Team Player: Chenault believes leaders must not
only be personable people who work well with others, but
must learn to give cutting, honest feedback. A leader
must know how to respectfully and productively engage
in confrontation.
Adaptability: Chenault emphasizes the vital importance
of remaining flexible and adaptable, particularly in the
current economical climate.
Personal Development: A leader’s success is judged by
the success of his or her followers. A leader is one who
has not only mastered his or her own personal attributes,
but is able to assist others in their own self-development.
(Chester, 2005)
DECISION-MAKING ABILITIES & EXPERTISE
?
Execution Skills: Chenault believes intelligence is not the same as the ability
to execute. It is easy to conceive strategic concepts, but the ability to
execute differentiates a leader from others(Chester, 2008).
?
Compassionate yet Decisive: Chenault understands that in volatile times,
leaders are closely scrutinized. A leader must have clear direction and must
not lose his or her composure, yet must also be compassionate(Chester,
2008).
?
Reflecting on his own career, Chenault suggests to other leaders to focus on
the task at hand and to do it thoroughly and excel. Then, hone in on one
small element of a job, organization, or process, and strive to transform it.
“In pursuing your long term aspirations,” he said, “think in incremental steps.
Pursue your passion, not ambition” (Chester, 2008, para. 14).
CHENAULT’S THOUGHTS ON THE LEHMAN
COLLAPSE
?
Chenault asks the critical questions to the CEOs of those failed
companies, “What were you doing with your balance sheet? How
did you think about leverage? What level of risk were you taking?
What changes did you make and were you willing to implement
them in good times” (Colvin, 2009, para. 37)?
?
Source: Google images
“From a leadership standpoint, those
companies needed to be focused and
decisive back in the good times, not just
when things got bad. The hardest time to
bring about change is in the good times”
(Colvin, 2009, para. 37).
CARRYING AMEX THROUGH THE CRISIS
?
American Express was in the middle of the financial
meltdown a year ago, when Lehman failed and AIG had to
be rescued. The company was on the verge of an absolute
disaster and collapse.
?
Chenault had to change his priorities and decide the key
areas which needed change. He went from being very
focused on growth to issuing a mantra for the organization
that we’re going to stay liquid, stay profitable, and
selectively invest in growth.
?
Chenault declined a bonus for 2008, although the other
executives were paid multimillion dollar bonuses that year.
(Colvin, 2009)
FULD
?
?
?
?
?
?
More focused on meeting quarterly
financial benchmarks than the big
picture.
Keeps doing the same things, refuses
to change his business model.
Continues to gamble on unsupported
securities and loans.
Arrogant and greedy – turning away
potential buyers because of pride.
Took a bonus of $4,250,000 in 2008.
Did too little too late to save the
organization.
CHENAULT
?
?
?
?
?
?
Has a long-term perspective that
focuses on structural flexibility and
adaptation.
Willing to challenge the status quo.
Focused and decisive during good
times and bad.
Focused on staying profitable, cutting
costs and selectively investing in
growth.
Declined to take any bonus in 2008.
Believes in being ahead of the curve
and making changes even when things
seem good.
CHENAULT VS. FULD
CHENAULT’S CHANGES TO LEHMAN BROTHERS
?
Chenault would have taken a closer look at the risky
loans Lehman was offering .
?
Chenault would have made changes to the business
model long before the company got in so deep.
?
Chenault would have made better business decisions.
?
Chenault would not have greedily taken a large bonus in
order to help cut costs for the weakening company.
?
Chenault would have recognized when to sell or merge
the organization, before everything was lost in
bankruptcy.
CONCLUSION
?
?
?
?
?
In the end, Chenault has better leadership skills than
many CEOs in the business world, including Richard
Fuld.
His knowledge and skills would have been very
beneficial to Lehman Brothers during the last few years.
He was able to save American Express during hard
financial times.
He now faces a new challenge with President Obama’s
new mandates on credit cards.
He will make the necessary changes to his organization
and come out stronger than before.

Finding Partners
The matter of mental health support is a community action obligation, not only at the
local community level, but at a national level. As a civilized society, we must be held
accountable and come together to provide any assistance we possibly can to those who suffer
from mental illnesses. The focus will not only revolve around the topic of mental illness, yet
will also include the matter of suicide and depression awareness. Suicide is not only a result of
mental illness or depression, but either of those can be a trigger for someone to attempt to take
their own life. By finding partners within the local community and beyond, we have a great
chance and having the funds to hold training classes, informational handouts, radio commercials,
website, and anything to get people to seek help if they believe they would like to end their life
or have feelings of hurting others.
