2Personal Philosophy The person’s philosophy as a leader highlights how they view themselves as a leader. Many people think that leadership is a natural born trait while others think that it can be taught and learned. But no matter what specific leadership philosophy will change over time because of external and internal forces. This assignment will provide you with the roles of a health care leader, the influence of the sphere, as well as the uses of power this would include negative and positive as well as informal and formal that leader have. This student will also share the results of a leadership survey and will talk about how it supports their leadership philosophy. Health Care Leaders RolesA health care leadership role can be complicated due to every mistake costing the organization money. The health care leader’s role is to plan, access, and control every situation effectively and efficiently. Health care leaders need to ensure that there is proper staffing, with providing clinician support, and overseeing all interactions with staff. Leadership in home care isno different than facility leadership. Generally the care is one on one and this can make staffing have more challenges, when a member of the staff decides to call their shift. The leader of the home needs to have the ability to balance their personal needs as well as the needs of the patient needs. The leader needs to be able to match up the right staff member with the right patients.Current Influence SphereA leadership theory that is best suited for a restaurant leader is a Hersey Blanchard Situational Leadership Theory. This theory is based on using more than one style of leadership because leaders needs to be able to change leadership styles that are based on the people that are leading and the details of the situation and tasks. When people think about the diversity of the
3work force today they need to understand the mangers tendencies. The mangers styles as well as adapting to the situation and the people so that they can get a successful result (Cheryl Parsons, 2013). The Hersey and Blanchard leadership Theory has four main leadership styles along with four types of maturity levels and/or skill levels. The four leadership styles include telling, selling, participating, and delegating. The telling portion of the leadership style includes telling employees what needs to be done and how to do it. The selling portion is leaders providing direction and information. Leaders will need to also sell their message so that the employees willbe on board. The participating portion of the leadership style is leaders need to focus on the relationship and not so much on the direction. Leaders need to work as a team player as well as share responsibilities about decision making. The delegating portion is that leaders generally passmost of the responsibilities onto the followers with the leaders monitoring the progress. The Hersey and Blanchard leadership Theory also has four maturity levels the first level is employeesthat are at the bottom of the scale that have no knowledge or skills to work alone. The second level is employees that may be willing to work on tasks but still need some kind of assistants.
