Running head: NETWORKING RELATIONSHIPS 1 Networking Relationships Deidra M. Carter MHA/520 June 29, 2020 Professor Julie Hayek
NETWORKING RELATIONSHIPS 2 Networking Relationships Introduction In the military, there are times when you must be a follower before a leader. I had an opportunity to experience both ends of the spectrum being enlisted Soldier and now as an Officer. Leadership is a skill that you develop over time through experience with others. Something that I learned over the years when placed in a leadership role and led is informing your team of your expectations and asking your employee what expectations they have of you as their leader. Everyone wants a leader to trust and know they will fight for them when things get rough. By understanding their expectations, you become a better leader and help them become an even stronger team that can achieve anything (Bill Hoggs Associates, 2020). This paper will evaluate two letters of recommendation received by a supervisor and employee from a previous workplace on my Leadership and work ethics. Who did you reach out to, and what is their relation to you? I reached out to Nicole Peacock, a previous Lead of Outpatient Medical Records at Reynolds Army Health Clinic from 2015 through 2017. She oversaw 17 medical records technicians who had many functions from the release of information, managing medical records for over 45,000 beneficiaries, retiring medical records, in-processing, and out-processing 10,000 basic training medical records safeguarding sensitive documents or files. I reached out to LTC Martha Marie Stewart, my previous supervisors at Reynolds Army Health Clinic (RAHC) in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. She served as the Deputy Commander of Administration from 2015 to 2017. I reported my daily operation and employee concerns for the Patient Administration Branch. Who responded, and what did they have to say?
NETWORKING RELATIONSHIPS 3 I was able to receive correspondences from everyone that I contacted. The responses are as follows: Nicole Peacock (2015-2017): In the eleven years since I joined medical records, Captain Carter has stuck out as one of the best supervisors that I ever had. Through her unparalleled leadership skills, she showed great creativity, patience, and empathy. While under her supervision, I learned a great deal from her about what it means to become an effective leader. She taught me the importance of communication, self-awareness, and the ability to delegate in any situation presented before me. As a result, Captain Carter's Leadership and supervisory skills created a positive work environment and made a significant impact on how I lead and supervise.
