LEADERSHIP LEVEL 2 Our question of the week once again, keep us to the same concept, “A good leader are born or made?” A lot of researchers have been done for this matter, the question remains with a lot of debates, depending on what theory you use, you may find the advantages of your theory been a limit for another theory. We expanded our study by for example look at what makes good leaders? Is any special consideration you may take in consideration when given executive position to someone? All these questions are what we will develop in the following lines. Any organization that aspires to go from the good to the great, should really think on what kind a leader they want for their organization. Many psychologists until now are still working on what makes a great leader, especially in the healthcare industry. As mentioned by the study done in 2015 by the King’s Fund and Lancaster University Management School, “The key challenge facing all NHS organizations is to nurture cultures that ensure the delivery of continuously improving high quality, safe and compassionate healthcare. Leadership is the most influential factor in shaping organizational culture and so ensuring the necessary leadership behaviors, strategies and qualities are developed is fundamental.” Look at things for this angle, we may go the though made that “leaders are born”. All these week we spoke about the trait theory, the question is why most studies have relied on this theory? As we know, trait Theory was one of the first systemic approaches to study leadership. The theory attempted to discover what are the innate qualities that make a superior leader. These characteristics come from researchers studying extraordinary people.” (Northouse, 2013) This study done by Northouse where he used two approaches by comparing the important similarities among leadership. The five most important things mentioned by Northouse were: “intelligence, self-confidence, determination, integrity, and sociability”. (Northouse, 2013, pp. 19-23).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
