o Emotional leadership One who is committed to the delivery of high-quality client care and refrains from judgment in controversial or emotionally charged situations until facts are gathered. Are aware of and manages their own emotions so that they do not affect judgment or decisions on client care or goals of the group. o Laissez Faire “Leave it alone” leadership style. Little planning. Relies on staff to make their own goals and methods to achieve them. Little decision making by the leader. However, people usually feel lost & frustrated. Leader usually avoids making decisions hoping that everyone will figure it out themselves. This style works great with self-motivated people and who have the same educational level as the leader. o Democratic (supportive, participative, transformational) All members of the group are involved in: planning, goal setting, implementing, taking credit for successes. Leader provides guidance to group members. Hallmark signs of this style are: trust, collaboration, confidence & autonomy. Usually works best if all members of the group know each other very well. o Authoritative ( controlling, directive, or autocratic ) Gives orders. Strong control by the leader over the group. Micro-manages and makes changes on the spot if they know of a better way to do the task. The leader makes final decisions.

12 This works best in Emergency situations when clear directions are needed to save lives ( ex: in a “code” situation). o Ethical Dilemma More than 1 choice can be made. It’s influenced by values & beliefs of the decision makers. Requires balance between science & morality. o Visionary Assessing the current reality, determining a specific desired end point, and figuring out strategies to get there.

Have the right to determine which leader they follow. Can question, think, and criticize leaders. Followers are not always obedient or compliant. o Transformational Leadership Empower followers to assume responsibility for a shared goal or vision, and personal development is a secondary outcome. The transactional leaders focus on immediate problems, maintaining the status quo and using rewards to motivate followers. Review the principles of Delegation and Prioritization. Designation of tasks to another person who is then responsible for carrying out those cares/tasks for certain clients. That person understands that they are “acting in place” of the RN and will be carrying out tasks that fall under the RN’s Scope of Practice . The person who you delegate to must be qualified to perform the task. 5 Rights of Delegation 1. Right Task (is it OK per protocol?) 2. Right Person (are they qualified?) 3. Right Direction/Communication (are instructions/education clear?) 4. Right Supervision/Feedback (are outcomes achieved?

    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.
