Leadership and Management Concepts NameInstitutionInstructorCourseDate Leadership and Management Concepts Leadership and Management Concepts The concepts of leadership and management are important in all healthcare organizations and the health care practitioners must consider these two concepts in their performance of their roles and responsibilities in the health care facility. These two concepts must be applied to enable an organization to achieve its set objectives (Huber, 2017). Management is the most key aspect of all organizations as it is responsible for the planning, running and organization of resources in an organization to enable the organization to achieve its set goals where else leadership ensures that roles and responsibilities are done according to the set principles and monitoring is done to achieve desired goals and objectives (Huber, 2017). Management is involved with the main activities and responsibilities of an organization which include planning of the organization goals and objectives, organizing, and controlling resources to enable achievement of the set goals where else leadership takes over from the management where it involves activities involved with the achievement of the planned goals by the management (Huber, 2017).
Leadership includes guiding, monitoring and ensuring that the management achieves its set goals. Management is involved with an organization mission and vision (Huber, 2017). This means that management makes important decisions that impact the entire organization including the nurse leaders. This means that the management determines an organization’s performance. This can be improved by creating a better environment for their leaders to carry out their roles and responsibilities (Huber, 2017). The goals of management and leadership may sometimes overlap as leadership is concerned with the current direction and vision of an organization where it directs and guides its members to the desired objectives where else management is concerned with the established of the vision and mission of the organization (Huber, 2017). Even though the members of the management team can be replaced, the vision still remain the same but different leaders can have different leadership styles all aimed at achieving the desired goals and objectives (Huber, 2017).
As a nurse leader, I believe I can expand my influence to create change by taking advantage of this overlap through explaining to other leaders their expectations and their roles in the organization’s achievement of its goals and objectives. This overlap has created a good environment on what I am responsible for and what the nurse managers are responsible for (Huber, 2017). With this clear understanding, it is easy for one to take full responsibility and not shift blame in times of poor performance. This overlap also indicates that for an organization to be successful, managers and leaders must perform their roles and duties collaboratively to achieve the organization goals and objectives, which is to provide quality healthcare to the citizens of the United States (Huber, 2017).
