Nursing Leadership In A Diverse Society
Week 1 Project
This assignment is about you. It is an assessment of your abilities and traits. This assignment will help you figure out what style of leadership you have been following and whether this style works for you.
Through this assignment, you will find the various approaches of leadership that complement each other. There is no one theory that describes the only way to be an effective leader. Each theory focuses on different issues, but they all help you to better understand how to become a successful leader.
Using the University Online Library or the Internet, research about Time Management Assessment.
Note: You can also use the following link to access the Time Management Assessment: Time Management Assessment – http://literacynet.org/icans/chapter03/timemgmt.html
Based on your research and understanding, create a paper in a 3- to 4-page Microsoft Word document that:
Incorporates your time management self-assessment information and the concepts learned this week (leadership theories, leadership versus management, professional nursing organizations, and time management.
Includes identification of one leadership theory (Autocratic, Participative, Delegative) which you feel best describes your leadership style.
Includes a comparison between leadership and management.
Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper.
As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format. Support your work, using your course lectures and textbook readings. Helpful APA guides and resources are available in the University Online Library. Below are guides that are located in the library and can be accessed and downloaded via the University Online Citation Resources: APA Style page. The American Psychological Association website also provides detailed guidance on formatting, citations, and references at APA Style.
