“A nurse leader is defined by their actions, and not always by a position of authority. They inspire and influence others to achieve their maximum potential” -ANA

  • Confronting a problem: deals effectively and acts prominent when they are faced with a tough decision
  • Adapts to a diverse population: respects and accommodates with people from a different race, gender, culture and age
  • Have self awareness: knows their strengths and weaknesses and are wiling to admit and learn from mistakes

"Leadership is not defined by what courses we have attended or what qualification we have achieved, but instead by the difference we are making to the people around us” - National Fire Chiefs Council


Leadership FrameworkPersonal impact: ensures you value, respect, and promote equality to have a positive presence on others Outstanding leadership: Focuses on helping build high performing teams and developing people to their full potential Organizational effectiveness: ensures that everything that is being done is for the best of the department and linked to their mission Service delivery: Focuses on delivering high quality services


“Teacher leadership is not necessarily about power, but about extending their presence beyond the classroom by seeking additional challenges and growth opportunities”Themes that describe leadership as a Teacher :
  • Collaboration with colleagues and student to benefit student outcomes
  • Sharing best practice and research with other teachers to determine best methods for learning
  • Taking Action: direct the learning
  • Role modeling: mentoring students and demonstrate positive traits

What do they have in common?

They serve as role models with traits used to have an impact on others

Three styles of leadership


  • Makes decisions as a group
  • lets others have a say in what portion of work they take on
  • seeks feedback and looks for opportunities for improvement

Charismatic :

  • Creates a vision for their team
  • Builds trust by demonstrating personal integrity
  • Encourages each team member and focuses on their development


  • Demonstrates values and trust
  • Motivates workers by conveying confidence and purpose
  • Provides opportunities for creativity and allows for people to grow

Three theories of leadership

  • “The Great Man Theory”: born with qualities of a leader. They are born not created or can be taught. (Decisive, wise, daring, assertive)
  • “Behaviorist Theory”: Leadership abilities are a product of their environment. Qualities are not born but they are formed and driven by their behavior. (Reliable, effective, task-focused)
  • “Relationship theory”: Focuses on others. They serve as mentors; they are people orientated and want a positive work environment. (inclusive, supportive, motivational)




Strengths: - Enjoy working with others - Keeping an open mind with seeking feedback and looking for opportunities to improveWeaknesses: - may not be able to accomplish during fast decision making

Plans: Aim to try different leadership styles to accommodate to what works best for me.

- Thinks about collaboration and what is what's “best” to do - Provides opportunities for creativity and allows for growthWeaknesses: dependency on others
