Leaders are essential in the development and implementation of strategic goals. Leadership ensures that organizations have sustainable business practices to increase revenue and build brand equity. Healthcare leaders help institutions adopt best practice in medical care, including the integration and coordination of current information systems. This helps to optimize service efficiency (Fisher, et al. 2016). Podcasts will address the following topics: Who is responsible for embracing diversity and inclusion? Which leadership style is best for allowing institutions to achieve their strategic goals? How can institution leaders improve the quality and quantity of their performances?
Modern workplaces are home to people from many cultures and backgrounds. It is up to leaders to ensure that minority workers do not suffer harassment, discrimination or stereotyping. Many instances have occurred where minorities such as African-Americans or Native Americans were discriminated by their coworkers, patients, or employers. To address the inclusivity factor, leaders of companies must foster a culture which encourages inclusion, coherence, cooperation. All leaders in any institution, particularly those working in healthcare, need to foster an environment that supports the success of minority employees (Knaak and al., 2016). Corporate leaders can also create cultural competence training for employees to help them serve diverse customers.
Leaders can use a variety of leadership styles to ensure that the institution achieves its goals and ambitions. There are many leadership styles that leaders can use to ensure their institution’s goals and objectives. Northouse (2018) states that the most popular types of proactive leadership are transactional, transformational and servant leadership. Transformational leaders inspire people with their inspiring ideas, which attracts them to help realize the vision. Their followers are more likely to be innovative and creative when they follow transformational leaders. Transactional leaders reward outstanding performance to encourage proactive behaviour. To motivate their staff, servant leaders use delegating and mentoring techniques.
Leadership employs a range of techniques to increase the institution’s performance. Leaders allocate the appropriate resources to ensure employees can perform their jobs efficiently. To ensure employees are successful in their jobs, leaders organize, distribute, and manage financial and technical resources. In order to improve their abilities and enable them to take on more challenging duties, leaders mentor and coach their employees (Rosenbach, et al. 2018). To increase productivity and dedication, leaders use both financial and nonfinancial rewards, such as bonuses, allowances and vacations.
