Leadership

Leadership studies demonstrate that the most effective leaders know  how to draw upon self-leadership skills to in turn motivate and lead  others to expand their strengths to ultimately better serve the goals of  an organization. For this assignment, you will continue to study  conscious leadership and look at a leadership example from contemporary  media and evaluate how well the particular leader exemplifies the  qualities of effective and ethical conscious leadership. 

Select a  relevant and topical leadership issue from current news media that  revolves around ethics and ethical decision-making. Research the  situation and gather information in order to evaluate the leader. Keep  in mind, the issue that you choose will serve as the backdrop for your  evaluation while using the key terms and concepts covered in your course  readings. Write an evaluation of a minimum of 1,000-1,250 of the  situation that addresses the following:

  • The power bases used by the leader.
  • The influence tactics used by the leader.
  • The leadership style of the leader.
  • The outcome (or potential outcome) of the situation.

Conclude  by justifying whether you think this leader supports the values of  conscious capitalism. Is the leader’s leadership style effective? Do you  believe the leader acted ethically in the situation? Be sure to  consider each tenet of conscious capitalism in your leader evaluation.

Next,  imagine yourself as a practitioner of servant leadership. You have been  appointed into the leadership role in this same circumstance. Explain  how the situation would be different. Address the four criteria listed  above in your discussion and incorporate the principles of conscious  capitalism by explaining how your personal values and style are  influenced by each tenet.

Strengthen your claims in each content section with supporting citations and specific examples.

      Follow the instructions for the assignment. Include the introduction in this section. This is the section where the writer prepares the reader for the content.

      A MEAL paragraph is a format that helps guide the writer in literary analysis writing. It is an acronym for: Main Idea – the paragraph’s central focus, what you are trying to prove within the paragraph. Evidence – examples that help prove the main idea (and, in a longer paper, the thesis). Analysis – This section is the most important part of the paragraph; it is where the writer digs deep into the evidence and explains how and why it proves the thesis. Transcend what the quotation, or any other from of evidence, says and explain connections that you personally come up with. REMEMBER: EXPLAIN HOW AND WHY!!! Last Thought/Linking Sentence – If you’re just writing a paragraph, use this sentence to restate the Main Idea (in a different way!) and wrap up your thoughts. For a longer paper, connect your main idea back to your paper’s thesis. Sometimes teachers will tell you to transition to the next paragraph’s idea.

      Once you have written your paper, make sure the font color is black and remove these instructions.

      This is an example of the ANA Postion paper. It does not have the headings that you would have in your paper. It is otherwise formatted correctly for APA 7th edition. Remove this textbox.

      Writing Assignment # 2

      TCM 710

      Week 10, Due Tuesday, April 5th at 11:55 PM

      Discussion Board – A discussion topic for week # 10 has been posted and is due April 5th.

      Reading Assignment: Read the case study – “BoldFlash: Cross-Functional Challenges in the Mobile Division”. Directions for obtaining the case study are given below.

      Writing Assignment # 2 – 10% of Final Grade: This week we will be working on Writing Assignment # 2 instead of the regular homework assignment. This assignment involves reading a case study and answering discussion questions relating to the case. Material from Chapters 6-8 of the course text should be particularly helpful, but you are encouraged to use relevant material from the entire course as needed. Other than the course text, you should utilize the case study, your own experience, and additional references as needed. Considerable thought should be given to these questions and a well rounded discussion should be provided.

      References: At least 2 references should be provided other than the course text. Use the parenthetical citing method for referencing where you list the author (or publication name if an author is not given) along with the date of publication at the point in your writing where the material was used. A complete reference of the work using APA guidelines should be listed in a reference section at the end of the assignment. Simply listing a website as a reference with no author, title, publication identification, or date is not considered an acceptable reference. Use credible references from peer reviewed articles or from respected organizations and publications. Do not use Wikipedia as a source.

      Formatting: Writing Assignment # 2 is not a term paper and other than references only a few formatting issues will be specified. Respond to the questions in the order they are asked and identify each response by its corresponding question number. List each question before providing an answer. Each response should be double spaced and approximately ½ page in length. Include a reference section at the end of the paper. The final length of this assignment should be between 2 and 3 double spaced pages (not including the reference section).


      Grading:
      Writing Assignment # 2 will primarily be graded based on the clarity, accuracy, and insight provided in your responses. Be sure to consider the material we have covered in the course text, your experience, and references from other sources where appropriate. Answer each question directly and provide appropriate discussion. Your writing should be concise so that it answers each question thoroughly, but within a minimum amount of space. Referencing and grammar will also be considered in the grading.

      Obtaining the Case Study: You will need to purchase this case online from Harvard Business Publishing for $4.25. The following link will direct you to the case:

      https://hbsp.harvard.edu/import/913729

      (if you have problems with the link you may need to cut and paste it directly into your browser) Provide the user name and password you previously established. You will then be allowed to enter the TCM 710 area and purchase and download the case: “BoldFlash: Cross-Functional Challenges in the Mobile Division”. If you have problems getting the case, please call Harvard Business Publishing at: (800) 545-7685.

      Writing Assignment # 2 – Questions: After reading the assigned case, answer the following questions as specified above. You are not required to return this assignment file. Return the questions and your responses in a new Word file. (Be sure to number the questions and include your name at the top – 100 points total)

      1) 16 points – Identify at least three major errors or shortfalls that recently caused problems for the Mobile Division prior to Roger Cahill taking leadership of that area. For each error or problem identified, discuss the likely root cause.

      2) 16 points – List and discuss at least three company strengths or positives associated with BoldFlash that Roger Cahill can utilize.

      3) 16 points – Identify and discuss the major criticism of the otherwise strong research function of the company. How is this criticized area of weakness impacting the performance of the company?

      Analysis of the ANA Position on Social Causes and Healthcare: Promotion and Disease Prevention

      ANA is a professional organization of nurses that brings together professionals in the nursing field and acts as a platform where nurses can voice their concerns on the issues related to their profession. The organization offers a position statement on different significant issues that impact the nursing practice and the well-being of patients. The primary purpose of voicing their concerns is to ensure that the nurses maintain high standards of care while serving patients and ascertaining that the healthcare setting provides an adequate environment where nurses can perform their roles effectively (American Nursing Association, n. d.). The significant areas where nurses have issued a position is the issue of social causes and healthcare, specifically promotion and disease prevention. This essay examines the position of ANA on the issue of social causes and healthcare, specifically the promotion of health and disease prevention. It compares the position of ANA on the issue and that of WHO and investigates how the association’s position on the issue impacts QSEN competencies, the nursing profession, public health, and leadership models used in the healthcare setting.

      ANA Position on Social Causes and Healthcare: Promotion and Disease Prevention

      The ANA has very strong standpoints on various social and healthcare elements that affect the populace. Its position on promotion and disease prevention is that those in the nursing profession must diversify their roles in the clinical to include actions such as creating and implementing interventions that are designed to enhance the health and well-being of individuals and safeguard them from ailments and disabilities (American Nursing Association, n. d.). These strategies should be adequately equipped to cater to the needs of individuals individually and in groups, families, and diverse populations. Also, they should be structured in a manner that can be applied at different levels, ranging from primary to secondary and even tertiary levels.

      A Comparison with the Position of the World Health Organization on the Issue

      Like ANA, the WHO has a strong viewpoint on health promotion and prevention of disease. According to the global organization, health promotion and disease prevention allude to the process of ensuring that the masses can take charge of their health by instigating the interventions that safeguard their health and enhance the quality of life they lead by identifying the genesis of ailments and how they can be addressed (World Health organization, n. d.). According to the organization, health promotion and prevention are vital in addressing significant factors such as patients’ susceptibility to chronic ailments.

      Comparison of the Two Positions

      The ANA position on health promotion and disease prevention is similar to that of WHO in that both viewpoints emphasize the significance of enhancement of the health status of individuals as a critical factor that ensures that they are free from ailments (World Health organization, n. d.). According to the explanations provided by the organizations, putting in place measures to prevent ailments and encourage wellness is the primary factor that determines the health of the masses.

      Contrasting Aspects of the Two Positions

      A significant element differentiates the two viewpoints. While the position of ANA focuses on the roles that nurses can play in health promotion and disease prevention, the WHO’s viewpoint takes a different approach. For example, it examines the influences of the social determinants of health and actions such as effective communication, educational programs, and policies play in achieving this role (World Health organization, n. d.). It analyzes how these aspects impact health promotion and disease prevention in different populations.

      QSEN Competency

      QSEN competencies are the techniques identified as fundamental processes that aid those in the nursing profession in performing their roles effectively. A total of six significant elements were created to ensure that nurses maintain excellent standards of practice while caring for patients. They include providing patient-centered care, supporting teamwork and collaborative engagements, using evidence-based practices to care for patients, improving the standards of care that patients receive, safeguarding patients’ safety, and using informatics in healthcare delivery (Schuler et al., 2021). Analysis of teamwork and collaboration helps determine how using knowledge, skills, and attitude can help nurses achieve Ana’s goal of promoting health and preventing diseases.

      Health promotion and disease prevention are significant elements that require cooperation between different individuals tasked with performing different essential roles in the healthcare field. In this context, registered nurses must work together with community health workers to ensure that the masses know the significance of observing healthy practices such as eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly as effective health promotion practices (Schuler et al., 2021). For example, exercising prevents excessive weight gain and, in the process, prevents chronic ailments like diabetes. The team members must know their roles in ensuring the health and well-being of patients and preventing ailments. Another significant element that is addressed while fostering collaborative engagements that can promote health and prevent diseases is having effective skills to achieve this goal. Some of the skills that can help achieve this goal include effective communication (Dahl & Crawford, 2018). Effective communication ensures that the teams tasked with promoting health and preventing ailments work together to eliminate any barriers that may impede adequate collaboration between workers to ensure that comprehensive measures are instigated to enhance health and prevent ailments.

      Analysis of ANA Position in the Nursing Profession and Public Health

      ANA emphasizes the significance of all individuals accessing effective healthcare needs that align with their diverse needs. According to the association, those in the nursing profession can play a vital role in ensuring that the health of the public is optimal by putting in place measures that promote health and disease prevention (Dahl & Crawford, 2018). These measures include engaging in advocacy programs that help create regulations to ensure this critical need is met. Subsequently, it includes using resources such as health information technology to ensure that all individuals are aware of the need to promote the healthy practice to prevent incidences of diseases.

      Leadership and ANA Position

      The leadership style that healthcare organizations adopt is fundamental in determining whether the ANA position is addressed effectively. For example, the use of the transformational leadership model is vital in implementing the ANA position because it helps the workforce set achievable goals of attaining a certain goal and puts in place adequate measures to achieve its goal (Moon et al., 2019). This process is significant because it promotes effective conveyance of information between different parties, which is an aspect that aids in reducing conflicts in the healthcare setting hence increasing the efficiency with which different processes are implemented that ensure that patients receive quality care that meets their diverse needs.

      Conclusion

      The positions made by ANA on different issues are significant in transforming the approaches used in healthcare dissemination by ensuring that they consist of standard practices that are structured to improve the quality of care that patients receive. Comparing the ANA’s position on promotion and disease prevention shows several differences and similarities. Nevertheless, both organizations emphasize the need to instigate measures that promote health and prevent the prevalence of ailments. QSEN competencies such as teamwork and collaboration elaborate on how KSA can be applied to ensure that nurses fulfill the goals inherent in the ANA position. Further, an analysis of the nursing profession’s role in meeting healthcare goals and the impact that the leadership style in fulfilling the roles highlights the significance of instigating effective measures in ensuring that nurses play a vital role in improving the health of the masses by promoting health and wellness and preventing the prevalence of ailments.

      A MEAL paragraph is a format that helps guide the writer in literary analysis writing. It is an acronym for: Main Idea – the paragraph’s central focus, what you are trying to prove within the paragraph. Evidence – examples that help prove the main idea (and, in a longer paper, the thesis). Analysis – This section is the most important part of the paragraph; it is where the writer digs deep into the evidence and explains how and why it proves the thesis. Transcend what the quotation, or any other from of evidence, says and explain connections that you personally come up with. REMEMBER: EXPLAIN HOW AND WHY!!! Last Thought/Linking Sentence – If you’re just writing a paragraph, use this sentence to restate the Main Idea (in a different way!) and wrap up your thoughts. For a longer paper, connect your main idea back to your paper’s thesis. Sometimes teachers will tell you to transition to the next paragraph’s idea.
