Asa nurse leader within the health care department, I do find myselfworking along with people who all have their own different ways ofcommunicating. In my organization, I work under a leader whoseleadership styles can be said to be strict, effective and efficient.This particular leader I can openly state that he possess traits of aservant leader and a democratic one (Hartley & Benington, 2010).
Hisdemocratic style has been made visible with how he ensures that allstaff members working along with him have various responsibilitieswhich should be accounted for and later feedbacks on how each hasperformed should be given out. Through this style he ensures thateach individual in his department focuses on their duties and makethem take their responsibilities more seriously as they will beaccountable for the actions that follow (Borkowski, 2011). Hisservant leadership style is demonstrated with some of his characterswhereby he shows awareness of all who he leads, he listens to all whocome to him and most of all he has a commitment to the growth of hiscolleagues.
Clearlyboth styles of leadership which this leader offers are worthemulating, in my case I would consider myself as a servant leader whoshould pickup democratic characters that will assist immensely in thedevelopment of my department. Through the democratic style I will beable to engage those I work with in decision making and I will alsobe able to connect with the patients to know if they are offered theproper services which they wished to get (Lundy & Janes, 2009).
