Module 1 Assignment: Applying Leadership to Enable Staff AchievementPhoto Credit: Getty Images/Hero ImagesThe healthcare industry is dynamic. Every patient is different. Every situation is different. A good healthcare leader must be able to address situations as they arise and make decisions accordingly. Consider the leadership styles that would be especially helpful in this scenario:You recently accepted the nurse manager position of a busy emergency department (ED) in a new organization that had 100,000 ED visits last year. These visits represent a 10% increase over the previous year. To meet the needs for staffing required for this sudden growth, the prior nurse manager hired 10 new nursing graduates and 10 nurse travelers that arrived on the unit a few weeks before you came. The breakdown in level of tenure and experience in your staff is: 25% highly tenured in this ED and experienced in this specialty; 25% tenured within the organization and proficient in this specialty; and 30% less than 2 years in the ED/organization and competent in this specialty. The remaining 20% of your staff are the experienced ED nurse travelers and inexperienced new nurses, both groups that are new to the organization.One of your first new responsibilities as the ED nurse manager is to provide unit-based leadership for the implementation of a new patient tracking system that offers more functionality than the previous tracking system used by this ED for the past 7 years. During the hiring process, you learned that the organization was going to implement this new patient tracking system, and you shared that you had experience in implementing the same system in your previous job.To prepare:Review the Resources.Search the Walden Library or other reputable academic/professional sources on the Internet and locate a peer-reviewed article related to situational leadership.Consider your own leadership style from the Clifton Strengths Signature Theme Report in relation to the needs of the staff in the scenario.Assignment (5 pages – not including title page and reference page):Write a paper in which you demonstrate how you, as the leader in the case example provided, would address the following:Explain how you would provide leadership for the implementation of the new system. Include a description of the leadership behaviors that would be most effective to position your staff for success based on their experience and needs.Explain how this implementation plan relates to your Clifton Strengths Signature Theme Report, including how this leadership situation aligns with or differs from your leadership profile.Explain your rationale for your choices and appropriately reference literature that supports your thinking.Explain how being able to successfully implement situational leadership better positions you to advocate for social change within your new organization on behalf of the patient population served.

Adaptability
SHARED THEME DESCRIPTION
People who are especially talented in the Adaptability theme prefer to “go with the flow.” They tend to be
“now” people who take things as they come and discover the future one day at a time.
YOUR PERSONALIZED STRENGTHS INSIGHTS
What makes you stand out?
By nature, you may be the unflappable — that is, not easily excited — member of your group. Perhaps
your teammates rely on you to remain calm in the face of unexpected changes, obstacles, or challenges.
They may appreciate how you deal with whatever occurs as it occurs. You might have little difficulty
altering your original plan. Driven by your talents, you now and then picture events or situations you might
find yourself facing in the coming months, years, or decades. Sometimes you consider ways you might
react when these circumstances materialize. Chances are good that you might be the team member who
slows down to appreciate the loveliness of your environment. Perhaps you have an easier time fitting into
new settings than some people do. Why? Maybe you see or are fascinated by the aesthetic — that is,
beautiful — qualities of each place. Instinctively, you perform quite well in situations where shifting priorities
and changing plans are the norm. You have a gift for reacting in the moment rather than delaying action.
Because of your strengths, you realize that each day offers its own surprises. You trust you can handle
whatever occurs. Even when you do not know exactly what to do, you probably know someone who does.
You have an uncanny ability to easily and cooperatively proceed in the direction in which other people and
processes are moving.

to unrealistic or wishful thinking. Perhaps you like to labor in the company of certain acquaintances
because they appreciate your practicality. Maybe you and some of your friends remain cordial after having
completed demanding or emotionally taxing projects. By nature, you may be good-natured and eventempered in your dealings with individuals. Perhaps your friendly disposition causes people to feel
comfortable in your presence. You might accept the differences and commonalities you find between
yourself and others. Driven by your talents, you intentionally pause once in a while to hear what people
want or need to tell you. Perhaps you realize individuals feel valued when you pay attention to the thoughts
or feelings they express. Occasionally you provide them with a reality check — that is, an unbiased opinion
of things as they truly are. Maybe your straightforward comments cause some individuals or groups to find
areas where they can agree rather than disagree. Chances are good that you may realize that conflicts or
disagreements can arise when you give one person opportunities, resources, or attention that no one else
receives. Perhaps you have a knack for keeping everyone’s emotions in balance by avoiding saying words
or doing deeds that might indicate you favor one or two individuals over the rest. It’s very likely that you
may have acquired qualifications to work or practice in particular fields. Being an expert, perhaps you
understand the importance of calling on specialists. You might need their help to pinpoint the proper course
of action or the correct response.

deep satisfaction in working hard with friends to achieve a goal.

sometimes notice that people you know seek you out. They might ask for your viewpoint or position on
specific issues. Chances are good that you feel most fulfilled when you are busy and simply performing
routine tasks. When you have nothing to do, typically you find something to do. Sitting around and wasting
time does not suit you at all. By nature, you may find it easier to befriend certain types of people if they tell
you what they want to accomplish. Knowing that much, you might read some books, journals, newspapers,
correspondence, or Internet sites to broaden your knowledge about their interests. When you can share
information that helps people move closer to their goals, perhaps you can begin to understand each other a
little better. Because of your strengths, you might share your perspective on things when asked. Perhaps
you appreciate people who can begin discussions or make small talk. Occasionally these individuals create
a safe environment for you to express a few of your ideas or feelings.

YOUR PERSONALIZED STRENGTHS INSIGHTS
What makes you stand out?
Instinctively, you sometimes investigate topics or explore issues to become more knowledgeable. Through
ongoing practice, you may acquire additional skills or perfect specific techniques. Maybe few things please
you as much as having mastered a subject that interests you. By nature, you might revel in the sensation of
having done something with excellence, such as public speaking, writing, designing, sailing, gardening,
investing, selling, hunting, or yoga. Your hunger for more knowledge about a skill or a subject might be
satisfied through reading. Perhaps you integrate what you already understand with some insights you
glean from particular books, journals, correspondence, or the Internet. Because of your strengths, you
periodically look forward to attending certain presentations or seminars. While particular people grumble

tendency to forge linkages between some of the speaker’s statements and a few of your own concepts,
philosophies, or theories. You might expand your knowledge base by engaging in lively discussions. It’s
very likely that you have new ideas whirling around in your head much of the time. You are very interested

by your talents, you might be determined to push for specific kinds of changes that could benefit
humankind or Earth itself. To some extent, your desire to have an impact motivates you to enter into
conversations with intelligent people. Sometimes drawing on their knowledge and ideas as well as sharing

reexamine your purpose in life.
