Adedoyin Junaid HLTH 637-Leadership Skills in the Health Care Setting Week 4- 02.24.16 Benzenger model- self-empowerment As a new hire how do you acquire power? 1. Understand the work culture- recognize the organizational structure, find out how people dress, display communication skills and charisma, find out who knows what and who has the connections (make connections, be in the know), understand the rituals that an organization may adhere to (routinized ways of doing things—Monday morning staff meetings, birthday celebrations etc), learn organization’s language and symbols 2. Develop your expert power very quickly 3. Be proactive (expect tasks, embrace them, look for them) 4. Take risks 5. Ambition (see #3) 6. “beat your own drum”- be careful with this one, maintain balance and give yourself some credit for the things you are doing right 7. Meet your boss’ needs so that the boss can become dependent on you 8. Take care of yourself Empowering others- Umiker Benefits of delegation: 1. Reduces the work load/ spreads the work load more equally 2. Sense of dependency (interdependence), 3. Tool to plan succession, 4. Creates confidence AND competence in employees, 5. Helps define authority, 6. Establishes adequate controls, feed back loops Key steps of delegation 1. Know your people; what can they do, what are they ready for? 2.
