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. Create a sense of commitment rather than compliance What not to delegate: do not delegate anything that is outside of the scope of practice for the employee, final selection of new hires, core job responsibility, resolving staff conflict, career-threatening tasks, the importance of presiding over an important meeting (dumping) 3. Avoid dumping; routine, no growth-potential tasks *** Take assessment on increasing employee self-control** (IESC) McGregor’s theory x and theory y Early management model in relation to motivation (motivation is implicit) x-dictator- autocrat top-down management “when they say jump, your response should be ‘how high’?” theory x managers believe things like- “people don’t like to work” there’s a lack of trust, they feel that they must control people tightly with win/lose rewards male Management x is also called transactional model or male model Believe “people are not ambitious or creative” Theory Y is transformational leadership- a highly communicative two-way leading with participation that requires high emotional intelligence It is reading your followers and understanding their basic needs and then transforming/aligning them to meet the organization needs Now sometimes called “female management style” Paternalistic leadership- Cares about the safety of their personnel but assumes risks when necessary (can be trusted by followers not to exploit them), has a robotic following that usually do as they are done
