possesses strong self-awareness would demonstrate flexibility, empathy,

One who possesses strong self-awareness would demonstrate  flexibility, empathy, and have an understanding of multiple types of  leadership abilities. This would be a leader who has the emotional  ability to understand others and has mastered the skill of compassion;  an element of emotional intelligence is a person’s ability to  understand ones feelings and how emotions can influence and affect  those around them (Mindtools, 2018). It is soemone who does not let  their own emotions get the best of them and has the trust of their  staff on their side.

An example of a person demonstrating strong self-awareness as a  leader managing a group of people is a manager who has come up with a  new system for a holiday schedule and how to keep it fair amongst his  or her staff. Such as dealing with those who are strongly against the  new holiday policy and claim it is unfair. Staying emotionally stable  is crucial to leadership effectiveness. Since we are all different and  all react differently to things, it is helpful for leaders to identify  gaps in their own social skills so as to promote and enhance further  development amongst staff. This aids in stress management and  especially during a holiday schedule change.

Self-awareness according to Daniel Goldman is where you always    know how you feel and you know how your emotions and actions can    affect the ones around you (“Emotional Intelligence”,     2018). Self-awareness for leaders means having a clear understanding    of your own strengths and weaknesses and behaving with humility    (“Emotional Intelligence”, 2018). Self-aware leaders    also must recognize the effect that their own actions and moods have    on others. 

Some behaviors that a leader with strong self-awareness    demonstrate are managing their own emotions and keeping their cool    even during uncomfortable or stressful situations. They often    display a sense of confidence, a sense of humor and have an    awareness of how they are perceived by others.  

An example of self-awareness for a manager leading a group of    employees is when speaking to their group about an unpopular policy    change, some of the employees may give push back to the change and    become resistant toward the manager. The manager with self-awareness    is able to control their emotions and keep calm while understanding    that they must keep a level head in order to lead these employees    during a difficult time.

As a nurse leader, I would like my hospital to implement an    outreach program to benefit needy members of the community.    Today’s workforce is diverse and has numerous conflicting    priorities which must be overcome in order to successfully implement    a new program. The first step in developing the new outreach program    is defining the needs of the community and population it will serve.    Second, a mission and a vision needs to be written that is aligned    with the stakeholder’s vision as well as the goals of the    organization (“10 Step Communication”, 2016). 

The two methodologies of communication that I would use to develop  the shared vision with the stakeholders would be writing and speaking.  Communicating the shared vision of this new outreach program will take  place over the course of many meetings. PowerPoint presentations using  written words and visual aids to articulate the vision of this  outreach program will be developed for these meetings. The spoken word  will also be employed while delivering these PowerPoint presentations.  Speaking is an effective method of communication especially when used  in conjunction with written or visual communication (“10 Step  Communication”, 2016).

Strategic management is a term “used to denote a branch of  management that is concerned with the development of strategic vision,  setting out objectives, formulating and implementing strategies and  introducing corrective measures for the deviations (if any) to reach  the organization’s strategic intent” (“What is  Strategic Management?”, 2017). Strategic management gives a  roadmap for the steps to take while making the program vision a  reality. There are four phases that Strategic management uses and they  are Strategic Intent, Strategy Formulation, Strategy Implementation  and Strategic Evaluation (“What is Strategic Management?”,   2017). Each phase is intended to keep the course of the program on track.

Communication is a very important skill not only leaders but everyone  needs to have in order to be successful in life. When talking to a  group or during a presentation, it is important to have eye contact  with the people you are speaking with as well as speaking  clearly.  Before the presenting part, information must be  collected and put in a relatable manner for the audience to  understand. Next, build a detailed plan on what information you will  be communicating to your stakeholders and be sure it is presented in a  way that is easy to understand (University of Michigan, n.d.).

If I were trying to get my vision across I would probably give the  stakeholders a paper copy of the presentation highlighting key points.  I would present a powerpoint slide with important information about my  topic and be sure to maintain eye contact and also be open to any  questions the people may have.  It is also important to watch for  your-non verbal cues as sometimes this can seem as if you are not very  interested in engaging with the topic or seem to care. Have passion  for what you are talking about and get the audience to be on your side  and see the vision you see.
