A nurse manager performs these management functions to deliver health care to patients. Nurse managers or administrators work at all levels to put into practice the concepts, principles and theories of nursing management.They manage the organizational environment to provide a climate optimal to provision of nursing care by the clinical nurses.
Technical Skills relates to the proficiency in performing an activity in the correct manner with the right technique.Human relationship skills pertain to dealing with people and how to “get along” with them.Conceptual skills deals with the ability to see individual matters as they relate to the total picture and to develop creative ways of identifying pertinent factors, responding to the big problems and discarding irrelevant facts.

Henry Fayol A French mining engineer, developed 14 principles of management based on his management experience. He pioneer in the field of management education. He has been rightly called as “father of management process school. He was first person who laid emphasis on the process of management.
Fayol’s Principle of Management are presented as follows; Division of Work- specialization makes employees more efficient which results to more and better outputs. Authority- managers have the authority to give orders. Along with authority goes responsibility. Whenever authority is exercise responsibility arise. Discipline- there is discipline when employees obey the rules that govern Unity of Command-in this aspect of management it is imperative that each employee should receive orders from one supervisor.
Unity of Direction- for each group of organizational activities having the same objective, direction comes from manager using one plan. Subordination of individual interest to general interest- an emlpoyee or group of employees’ interest should not precede over the interest of the whole organization. Remuneration- emlpoyee must be paid a fair wage for their service rendered to the organization.
Centralization- the degree to which the subordinates are involved in decision making. The task is to determine the optimum degree of centralization from every situation. Scalar Chain- this represents the line of authority from top management to the lowest rank in the organization. Communication should follow this scalar chain. Order- there is order when people and materials are in the right place at the same time. Equity- it exist when managers observes kindness and fairness to their subordinates.
Stability of Tenure- when there is a high employee turnover, there is ineffective management. Management should see to it that an orderly personnel planning is provided and ensures that replacement are available to fill vacancies. Initiative- whenever employees are allowed to originate and carry out plans they are expected to exert high level of efforts. Esprit de Corps- promotion of team spirit build harmony and unity within the organization
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.The donkey cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.Finally, the farmer decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At f irst, the donkey realized what was happening and cried even more loudly in panic and
A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake off the dirt and take a step up.As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the donkey, he would shake it off and take another step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up. Remember the five simple rules to be happy: Free your heart from hatred – Forgive. Free your mind from worries – Most never happen. Live simply and appreciate what you have. Give more. Expect less

Reward Pow er• This type of influence is created when the leader is able to offer a reward to his followers for completing tasks/behaving in a certain manner. Rewards in the workplace can take a variety of forms from chocolates, gift vouchers and holidays to promotions, commission and pay rises.• This type of power needs to be used carefully to prevent followers becoming accustomed to rewards and refusing to complete routine tasks without a reward. Generally rewards should not be offered, to follower
Coercive Power• This is the opposite of re ward pow er because this power is based on the leader having control over what happens if followers do not act as required. If followers do not undertake the action required, the leader will impose a penalty. Penalties tak e a varie ty of forms including withdr awal of privileges, job losses, verbal abuse, and delay ed or loss of promotion. In all cases the leader will need to choose the penalty carefully to prevent breaking the law or being the subject of an employment tribunal.• Coercive powers should be used carefully; overuse can lead to unhappy employ ee follow ers . Unhappy followers can be negative or unmotivated , they may resign or adopt a “work to rule” attitude. Work to rule is where employees refuse to undertake any duties (or adopt working practices) that are not stated in their contract.

AUTHORITARIAN (AUTOCRATIC) I want both of y ou to. . .
AUTHORITARIAN(AUTOCRATIC) This style is used when leaders tell their em ployees what they want done and how they want it accom plished, without getting the advice of their followers. Some of the appropriate conditions to use it is when you have all the information to solve the problem, you are short on time, and your employees are well motivated. Some people tend to think of this style as a vehicle for yelling, using demeaning language, and leading by threats and abusing their power. This is not the authoritarian style, rather it is an abusive, unprofessional style called bossing people around. It has no place in a leaders repertoire. The authoritarian style should norm ally only be used on rare occasions. If you have the time and want to gain more commitment and motivation from your employees, then you should use the participative style.

PARTICIPATIVE (DEMOCRATIC)• This style involves the leader including one or more employees in the decision making process (determining what to do and how to do it). However, the leader maintains the final decision making authority. Using this style is not a sign of weakness, rather it is a sign of strength that your employees will respect.• This is normally used when you have part of the information, and your employees have other parts. Note that a leader is not expected to know everything -- this is why you employ knowledgeable and skillful employees. Using

LAISSEZ FAIRE (DELEGATIVE)• In this style, the leader allows the employees to make the decisions. However, the leader is still responsible for the decisions that are made. This is used when employees are able to analyze the situation and determine what needs to be done and how to do it. You cannot do ever ything! You must set priorities and delegate cer tain tasks.• This is not a style to use so that you can blame others when things go wrong, rather this is a style to be used when you fully trust and confidence in the people below you. Do not be afraid to use it, however, use it wisely!

Evolution of Leadership Theory Leadership theory is an evolving field; while these highlight the mostcommon theories of the last century, more theories continue to be researched in the elusive search for a definitive understanding of leadership. More recent leadership theories are discussed on the following slides.
GREAT MAN THEORY• This theory assumes that the capacity for leadership is ”leaders are born inherent, that great not made”• These theories portray great leaders as heroic, mythic and destined to rise leadership when needed
Trait TheoryTraits that are related to leadership effectiveness: Intelligence traits - knowledge, judgment, decisiveness. Personality traits - adaptability, creativity, integrity, etc. Ability traits – ability to enlist cooperation, popularity, prestige, etc.
Trait TheoriesTrait Theories• Assume some people have certain characteristics or traits that make them better leaders than others• Studied great leaders throughout history• Power and situations were ignored
Rensis Liker t• He developed Likert Scales and Linking Pin Model• He also developed an Organizational Design• He identify 4 main styles of leadership called the Four (4) Systems Approach
Four Systems Model System 1 - Exploitative Authoritative: Responsibility lies in the hands of the people at the upper echelons of the hierarchy. The superior has no trust and confidence in subordinates. The decisions are imposed on subordinates and they do not feel free at all to discuss things about the job with their superior. The teamwork or communication is very little and the motivation is based on threats. System 2 - Benevolent Authoritative: The responsibility lies at the managerial levels but not at the lower levels of the organizational hierarchy. The superior has condescending confidence and trust in subordinates (master-servant relationship). Here again, the subordinates do not feel free to discuss things about the job with their superior. The teamwork or communication is very little and motivation is based on a system of rewards.
Four Systems Model• System 3 - Consultative: Responsibility is spread widely through the organizational hierarchy. The superior has substantial but not complete confidence in subordinates. Some amount of discussion about job related things takes place between the superior and subordinates. There is a fair amount of teamwork, and communication takes place vertically and horizontally. The motivation is based on rewards and involvement in the job.• System 4 - Participative: Responsibility for achieving the organizational goals is widespread throughout the organizational hierarchy. There is a high level of confidence that the superior has in his subordinates. There is a high level of teamwork,
Robert R. Blake & Jane Mouton• Developed the Managerial Grid Model which attempt to conceptualize management in terms of relations and leadership• They characterized 5 leadership styles according to two dimensions: concern for task or production and concern for people
The Major Leadership Grid Styles1,1 Impoverished management. Often referred to as Laissez-faire leadership. Leaders in thisposition have little concern for people or productivity, avoid taking sides, and stay out of conflicts.They do just enough to get by.1,9 Country Club management. Managers in this position have great concern for people andlittle concern for production. They try to avoid conflicts and concentrate on being well liked. Tothem the task is less important than good interpersonal relations. Their goal is to keep peoplehappy. (This is a soft Theory X approach and not a sound human relations approach.)9,1 Authority-Compliance. Managers in this position have great concern for production andlittle concern for people. They desire tight control in order to get tasks done efficiently. Theyconsider creativity and human relations to be unnecessary.5,5 Organization Man Management. Often termed middle-of-the-road leadership. Leaders inthis position have medium concern for people and production. They attempt to balance theirconcern for both people and production, but they are not committed.9+9 Paternalistic “father knows best” management. A style in which reward is promised forcompliance and punishment threatened for non-compliance Opportunistic “what’s in it for me”management. In which the style utilized depends on which style the leader feels will return himor her the greatest self-benefit.9,9 Team Management. This style of leadership is considered to be ideal. Such managershave great concern for both people and production. They work to motivate employees to reachtheir highest levels of accomplishment. They are flexible and responsive to change, and theyunderstand the need to change.
According to this theory, the effectiveness of a persons leadershipstyle depends not so much on the leader but on the follower-the followers maturity should be assessed
Fred Fiedler Developed his theory on the premise thatleaders’ personal characteristics are stable, and so is the leadership style “Fiedler Contingency Model” is a leadership theory that moved from research of traits andpersonal characteristics of leaders to leadership styles and behaviors
Fielder’s Contingency Model In this model leadership is effective when the leader’s style is appropriate to the situation, as determined by three principal factors: 1. Leader-member relations: The nature of the interpersonalrelationship between leader and follower, expressed in terms of goodthrough poor, with qualifying modifiers attached as necessary. It isobvious that the leader’s personality and the personalities ofsubordinates play important roles in this variable.2. Task structure: The nature of the subordinate’s task, described asstructured or unstructured, associated with the amount of creativefreedom allowed the subordinate to accomplish the task, and how thetask is defined.3. Position power: The degree to which the position itself enablesthe leader to get the group members to comply with and accept his orher direction and leadership
Contemporary Leadership Theories Transactional Leadership Style the leader motivates the followers by appealing to their own self-interest MOTIVATE by means of EXCHANGE process Encompasses 4 types of behavior: Contingent reward Management by Exception Active Management by Exception Laissez- Faire Leadership
Transactional Leadership• Exchanges rewards for services• Management by exception (Watches for deviations)• Keeps the system operating smoothly – Uses reward and coercive power bases – Recognizes what workers want and tries to deliver it – Rewards according to worker effort – Responsive to worker self-interests
TransformationalLeadership The most effective leadership behavior to achieve long term success and improved performance Transformational leaders are highly visible and spend a lot of time communicating
Transformational LeadershipBurns (1978)• Both leader and followers have the ability to raise each other to higher levels of motivation and morality – Traditional manager – concerned with day-to-day operations termed as transactional leader – Manager who is committed, has a vision, and empowers others with vision is termed as transformational leader
