Leadership Traits in Healthcare Organization

Table of Contents

Just as in any sector of service industry, the winners in healthcare service providers also manage to gain a significant role in this industry for following some traits. Any aspirant who wants to be a part of such elite group should consider the following checklist to gain high success in future.

According to Florence Nightingale “Let whoever is in charge keep this simple question in her head (not how can I always do this right thing myself, but) how can I provide for this right thing to always be done” (as cited by Oliver, 2006).

Business orientation

Mostly, healthcare professionals do get little or no exposure at all on business in their study curriculum, so they have to seek the information and knowledge from the external world. They need to be avid readers to gain such knowledge or they have to register with some relevant course.

Have a specific dream and a goal

Leaders tend to visualize beyond their present situation. Leaders dream and set their goals and ultimately concentrate on attaining both. Leaders gain success by setting a mission on where to reach. By setting and attaining their goals, they are well aware on how to move on the path leading to progress and they are brave enough to dream big.

Positive attitude

People have two perspectives to see their lives. Either they observe life as “glass half full” or “glass half empty”. Life’s unique opportunities are generally grabbed by those who are believers of the “glass half full” concept.


High skilled and successful people are generally highly energized.They always appear to be on the move, with a rapid thinking and moving capacity than others This high presence of energy is not by any coincidence. Energy is stimulated by concrete visions and goals, by endless passion, and by optimistic attitude along with a healthy mind and body.

Difference between formal and informal power and leadership

Formal power is gained as per your prominence, in terms of your position, in the company that you are working with. It depends on the authority you exercise there. Whereas, informal power originates not because of your respectable position but the kind of relation you establish and the measure of respect you are able to earn accordingly from your coworkers. Formal power is decided by the Management authority, but informal power derives from personal capability.

What is Nursing Leadership?

A nurse practitioner who can act as an inspirational source to other co workers, and can work in a team to achieve a common goal, like providing a better kind of care to the patients, is called as a nurse leader. “Nursing management is as much a nursing specialty as any specialty and requires specialty leadership skills. Mentorship/leadership from senior leaders, smoothens the transition from clinical roles to formal leadership roles” (Sanford, 2013).

Nurse leaders should be aware of political actions

Nurse leaders should be well aware of how diverse issues can be responsible to complicate the quality of patient care and it keeps an impact on the outcome eventually. Nurse leaders should acquire the qualities of influencing the changes in law, policy and regulations that rules the system of health care industry where they are practicing. At times nurse leaders are expected to be more involved beyond their normal mode of practice and get involved in the world of politics as and when required.

At the federal and state levels, decisions of legislative bodies are playing a pivotal role to keep an impact on the health care industry. The transition in delivery of health care methods along with the political system and involvement of the politicians into development of health care and implementation of new policies, has lead the nursing leaders to act as an influencing factor in the entire procedure. “This type of advocacy necessitates stepping beyond their own practice setting and into the less familiar world of policy and politics, a world in which many nurses do not feel prepared to operate effectively” (Political Aspects of Nursing, 2013).
