Assess leadership styles, traits, and practices as a nursing professional, establish the importance of effective interprofessional communication as a leader in nursing

The purpose of this assignment is to assess leadership styles, traits, and practices as a nursing professional, establish the importance of effective interprofessional communication as a leader in nursing, and to explore the role of servant leadership in nursing practice. PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes. Add an additional slide for references at the end of your presentation.

1.  Create a slide that summarizes your leadership style, traits, and practices.

MY LEADERSHIP STYLE IS :

 

You lean toward A DEMOCRATIC OR PARTICIPATIVE STYLE OF LEADERSHIP.. You tend to set the parameters for the work and have the final say on decisions, but you actively involve your team members in the process.

This style can build trust between you and your people, as they’ll likely feel engaged and valued. But it’s not great in a high-pressure situation that requires a fast turnaround, as it will slow you down. And, if you dislike disagreement or conflict, you might struggle with how people respond to consultation.

 

Democratic, Participative Leadership

With this approach, you set goals, guide team discussions, and make the final decision. But you also acknowledge that your people can have valuable insight into a problem or process, so you actively consult them . As a result, you’ll likely gain creative input and fresh ideas that you wouldn’t have come up with if you were working alone.

You might wonder how to manage differing opinions in the team, once you’ve invited participation in this way. Your goal is to build a culture in which people can have healthy debates with one another. So:

Be aware that processes could become dangerously slow if you involve your team members in every decision. You’ll need to judge carefully  whether you need to adopt a more autocratic approach, even if it’s only briefly.

2. Compare the personal leadership styles of your group members, including commonalities between group members’ strengths and weaknesses.

MY GROUP MEMBER ARE:

 

Authoritarian, Autocratic Leadership

This approach is helpful when your team needs to follow a process “to the letter,” to manage a significant risk. It’s also effective when you need to be hands-on with people  who miss deadlines, in departments where conflict is an issue, or in teams that rely on quick decisions being made.

But you need to be aware that relying on control and punishment to maintain standards will likely drive people away. Similarly, if you always demand that your team works at top speed, you can end up exhausting everyone.

Instead, you can show respect for team members by providing the rationale for your decisions. And they will more likely comply with your expectations if you take the trouble to explain Why the Rules Are There .

You can improve your ability to “lead from the front” by Planning for a Crisis , Thinking on Your Feet , and making good decisions under pressure . But be sure to balance these skills with an awareness of their potential negative impact on creativity, ideas gathering, motivation, and trust within the team.

Being too autocratic can also mean that you’ll find it hard to stand back from the detail and take a wider, more strategic view.

Tip:

Did you achieve your leadership role thanks to your technical expertise? If so, you’ll likely be used to getting things right, adding value, and having people’s respect. But your soft skills  might be lacking, so don’t be afraid to listen and collaborate more.

The Delegating, “Laissez Faire” Leader

“Laissez faire” is a French phrase adopted into English that means, “Let (people) do (as they choose).” It describes a policy of leaving situations to run their own course, without interfering.

By adopting this style of leadership, you empower your team to make decisions and to organize its own processes, with little or no guidance. The danger of this approach is that situations can collapse into chaos if your people have low motivation or poor skills. It can work, however, if they are experienced, knowledgeable, confident, creative, and driven, or if deadlines are flexible and processes are simple.

Be in no doubt, though, that as the leader you will still be held accountable for the outcome! So you might want to organize team decision making  processes to support your people while you take a “hands off” approach. Just be sure to delegate  the right task to the right person, as a mismatch could mean that the whole team fails.

Avoid becoming too remote, even with a high-performing, highly autonomous team. Change can occur at any time in business, so your organization’s requirements for your team might shift after your initial brief. If this happens, stay in touch with your people, and communicate clearly and promptly. Remember, you can offer your support without becoming a micromanager !

3. Discuss how leaders who practice servant leadership and have a strong understanding of their personal leadership traits can successfully lead others and navigate the unique challenges that are part of nursing and health care. Provide two examples that illustrate your main ideas.
