Leadership Styles in Healthcare

Healthcare in itself as a concept has changed over the last year and has really opened the door for leaders to step up and evolve the overall market. From consumer satisfaction to employee retention, it is important as a leader to identify your style and adapt to the circumstances of your organization. A leader takes their role seriously from the start and remains empathetic and relevant to both the employee and the consumer. They understand the importance of the operation to attain a common goal and help to improve productivity (Sfantou, et al. 2017). The understanding of the leadership role means that they understand the amount of responsibility they hold and what is expected of them from both above and below them. Leaders gain respect from those they work with through the type of leadership style that they have and how they acclimate to the work environment and the staff. In my previous role as a Director of Homecare, my Senior Director, remained a constant backbone in my development as a great role model to follow. She exemplified both the role and the responsibility as my leader through honesty, accountability, and empathy. She made our interactions meaningful and brought both context of insight and solution to the table in meetings and conversations between her counterparts and region. Working with her in depth through the pandemic while dealing with the most vulnerable demographic definitely equipped me with the knowledge, skill and experience to handle even the most sensitive or important situations. “Leadership is crucial for effective functioning of any organization” (Gemeda, et al. 2020). As a leader in healthcare, it is important to practice in adapting your leadership style to the situation and the individuals you are working with. It is also important to understand the foundation of your goals and how to remain relevant and empathetic to your team and the expectations. I know that there is so much more I have to learn as a leader in healthcare. With strong leaders to guide me through education and experience, I will be able to develop and growth my “go-to” and “supplemental” leadership styles in a way that will help me to become a more effective leader in the organization.
