Leaders help themselves and others to do the right things. They set direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to “win” as a team or as an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring in nature. Think of a time when you felt powerful and a time when you felt powerless when someone said or did something. How did you feel and or react is important as we learn the process of leadership and utilize the experiences to help us grow as leaders. Explain what the person said or did in each of the following situations.
In a minimum of 200 words, post your responses to the following to the Discussion Area:
How did being powerful or powerless effect your emotional state, your morale, and your performance? Determine the implications for leaders of making people feel powerful or powerless.
Do you agree or disagree with this statement “We become powerful when we give our own power away?” Give a few examples.

Leadership can be defined as the ability of the management to make sound decisions and inspire others to perform well in the organization. It is the process of directing the behavior of others towards achieving a common goal. In short, leadership is getting things done through others.
A manager directs the work of employees and is responsible for results. Whereas a leader inspires employees with a vision and helps those to cope with change. Two separate behaviors but both very necessary for an organization to achieve its goals.
Employees need their healthcare managers/leaders not just to assign tasks but to define purpose. Healthcare managers/leaders must organize workers, not just to maximize efficiency but to nurture skills, develop talent, and inspire results. Leadership and management must go hand in hand. They are not the same thing. But they are linked and must complement each other. The healthcare manager/leader should always be looking for the bottom line with the aspect of focusing on the future as well.
