Thank you for your informative post. As we grow in life and our profession, we experience new things. Through these experiences, our characteristics change, sometimes for the better or worse. Our critical thinking changes course depending on what we have seen and what waves we have ridden. Having effective leadership qualities is vital for safe and efficient nursing. Effective leadership is essential in the changing face of healthcare. Healthcare faces challenges of access, quality, and cost (Stoller, Taylor, & Farver, 2013). Leadership factors that attract and retain nurses include valuing staff contributions, embracing autonomy creates good working relationships and a management style that facilitates rather than directs (Wallis & Kennedy,
Working in the health care environment the world needs effective, wise and visionary leaders, leadership matters in every organisation to change the health care environment so it may continue to grow to ensure it gives us better evidence based practice (Evans & M.L, 2015, p 34-50). All health care professionals are required at some point in their position to engage in management or leadership. As an AIN, EN or RN they all have a responsibility to educate, lead and manage within the health care profession (Innis & Berta, 2016, p.2-22). This allows each individual to develop useful and excellent leadership skills and management strategies to be able to educate and lead an exceptional team (Innis & Berta, 2016, p. 2-22). Although our greatest
"Leaders are people who are able to express themselves fully they know who they are, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and how to fully deploy their strengths and compensate for their weaknesses. They also know what they want, why they want it, and how to communicate what they want to others in order to gain their cooperation and support. Finally they know how to achieve their goals" (Ingram, 2004).
A successful and societally beneficial healthcare organization must have a leader who has a sense of right and wrong, exhibits restraint, dispenses wisdom, and is a visionary that guides the organization to reach its maximum potential. The role of a successful leader is dependent upon employees that embrace the organization’s culture, mission, and direction. An effective leader rallies employee support and allegiance to the organization’s cause. An influential leader can elicit employee positivity and dedication, and has the ability to engage employees in achieving goals set forth by the organization and leadership.
The Public Health field is constantly changing and adapting to a new environment and changes that are occurring worldwide. Many of the Leadership and Management Skill trends that are affecting Public Health are the demographic shifts that are occurring in the US population. Accountability in relation to public responsiveness, assessing emerging health risks, and changes in health services delivery and financing, as well as leadership geared towards being collective and with less stress being place on the individual, are various trends that are affecting different forms of management. Within this paper, I will be examining collective leadership and how that will affect work at the individual level. Many do not fully understand what kind of role that Public Health and more specifically Public Health agencies play in their health and everyday lives,
As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, it requires people who attain great leadership qualities. The success of an organization depends on employees that can inspire people around them to achieve greatness and deliver quality care to the patients. Being in the healthcare industry, we have seen many changes recently. Therefore, by having a person with leadership qualities to guide others through these changes, while maintaining an organization that can deliver quality care is indispensable.
Kouzes and Posner (2017) stated leaders must challenge the process through searching an opportunities and doing experiments, taking risks, and learning from mistakes. They must challenge themselves to grow and learn. They must grab an opportunities to innovate, develop, and progress. Leaders challenge their team members to find out new approach to old problems. Experimenting and taking risk are the way to make an innovative improvements. They must grab an opportunities although there are some errors or mistakes initially along the way to success. They must celebrate small wins and take as stepping stones and learn from mistakes so that they can achieve ultimate goal making their team to do so (Kouzes and Posner (2012).
Healthcare systems are in needs of future leaders, cultivating high-potential employees should be the priority of any organization. With the omnibus leadership model, healthcare facilities need to develop and identified high-potential employees as early as possible. This can be done by improving or developing
I will uphold the USF value of diversity as a nursing leader by promoting diversity in the healthcare setting where i work. as a nurse, I need to be culturally diverse and have the cultural competence that refers to being able to interact successfully with people (patient or and staff) of different cultures. I will create my work environment where all of the followers are respectful of cultural and gender difference by understanding awareness of one’s own cultural worldview, attitude toward different views, knowledge of the different beliefs, and cross-cultural skills
The purpose of this paper is to share research information of health care organizations who are experiencing issues with Cultural Diversity. The information shared will help to support health care systems as they continuously work towards reducing health care disparities. While they continue their efforts to decrease diversity in health care governance and leadership. According to recent studies, the Institute for Diversity in Health Management, an affiliate of the American Hospital Association, found that there is about 81 percent of hospitals educated. Studies also found that all
Maintaining an organization with industry-leading levels of diversity and inclusion is critical to fulfilling our mission, sustaining our business objectives, and providing the highest quality, affordable, and culturally competent care to our members and patients and the communities we serve.” ("Kaiser Permanente",
Changes are the only constant that is happening in healthcare leadership. Leaders are motivated to transform their organization to be more patient centered amid the complexity of regulations and policies that our health care leaders encounter (Rice, February 13, 2016). Our healthcare industry caters to a very diverse culture and ethnicity, whether in the C-suite or management position, the clients that we have in the hospital setting or in our community. I work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU); our leadership changed so much in the last two years. Nurses now are empowered to suggest changes on how we deliver and take care of our patients. Not only the physicians and management make the decision. Furthermore, we created a culture that everyone is involved and all parties give a better service to our patients and
Do I have what it takes to make it has an employee of the health care field? I feel like I’m a good candidate for a health care job because I have what it takes to be a good candidate in the health field that I’ll choose. I have always taken care of, people throughout my life. The things I do think that makes me a good candidate is what I have as good assets while on the job. Also, how my weakness would affect me on the job and how I can fix my weaknesses for the job I’ll choose. The good reason why the employer can choose me for a healthcare job because of who I am.
Weech-Maldonado et al., (2012) believes that these changes have created a more diverse workforce and clientele. Voutsas (2011) believes that the workforce would continue to be diverse in terms of culture, ethnicity, gender, and age. As the population becomes increasely diverse, health care organizations will be required to respond appropriately .Brown and Mack (2011) states that “in order for American industry to out-innovate the rest of the world diversity matters”. Gathers (2003) is of the opinion that organizations should mirror the communities and societies that they represents .Therefore, Cross (2010) states that organizations must adjust their missions, visions, goals, values, strategies, and cultures in order to reflect the diversity of
