Leadership traits in healthcare

Leadership traits in healthcare

Leadership involves the process of encouraging and motivating others to achieve the set goals and objectives. Proper leadership is essential in all organizations including the medical and healthcare organizations(Lavoie-Tremblay, Fernet, Lavigne, & Austin, 2015, p. 1). In transformational leadership, leaders related with the subordinate closely for the purpose of addressing various problems as well as establishing a plan and strategic goals to guide the needed change and implementing the changes in an environment where the employees support the change.

Reasons for being drawn in transformational leadership

I believe that leaders have the responsibility of making the world a better place. Transformational leaders engage their employees in every aspect of their management(Stone, Belcher, Attoh, D’Abundo, & Gong, 2017, p. 2). This is key in the creation of the appropriate relationship between leaders and the subordinate. Through these interactions, leaders get a chance to build positive values with their subordinates. Additionally, such leaders can make a difference in areas where they govern.

How the leadership model interconnect with my personal moral

I am a Christian and believes in Christian values. Transformational leaders make a difference by working closely with the subordinate to bring the needed changes. They don’t undermine the input and the contribution of their subordinate(Vaismoradi, Griffiths, Turunen, & Jordan, 2016, p. 2). In addition to that, such leaders can create a positive working environment with their subordinate. As a Christian, I believe God chooses good leaders. Transformational leaders can make a difference, and by doing so, they influence the lives of others positively. This is in accordance with the will of God.


The morals and value of a leader

Leaders are meant to guide and motivate others. They impose the principles they beliefs in to build a positive working environment(Waite & McKinney, 2015, p. 1) Additionally, leaders should act as role models for others to follow. If the leaders have admirable behaviors, they end up influencing others positively. The value and beliefs of a leader significantly influence the leadership style.
