Leadership Theories in Practice Discussion
Leadership Theories in Practice Discussion 7
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. 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 isn’t 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,
you will examine formal leadership theories. You will compare
these theories to behaviors you have observed firsthand and
discuss their effectiveness in impacting your organization.
· Review the Resources and examine the leadership theories and
· Identify two to three scholarly resources, in addition to this
Module’s readings, that evaluate the impact of leadership
behaviors in creating healthy work environments.
