A walk through the Business section of any bookstore or a quick Internet search

A walk through the Business section of any bookstore or a quick Internet search on the topic will reveal a seemingly endless supply of writings on leadership. The formal research literature is also teeming with volumes on the subject. However your own observation and experiences may suggest these theories are not always so easily found in practice. Not that the potential isnt there; current evidence suggests that leadership factors such as emotional intelligence and transformational leadership behaviors for example can be highly effective for leading nurses and organizations. Yet how well are these theories put to practice? In this Discussion Examine formal leadership theories. Compare these theories to behaviors you have observed firsthand and discuss their effectiveness in impacting your organization. To Prepare: Review the Resources and examine the leadership theories and behaviors introduced. Identify two to three scholarly resources in addition to this Modules readings that evaluate the impact of leadership behaviors in creating healthy work environments. Reflect on the leadership behaviors presented in the three resources that you selected for review. Ø Describe two key insights you had from the scholarly resources you selected. Ø Describe a leader whom you have seen use such behaviors and skills or a situation where you have seen these behaviors and skills used in practice. Be specific and provide examples. Ø Then explain to what extent these skills were effective and how their practice impacted the workplace.
