The past several weeks have been spent focusing on leadership, and leadership styles. This is something that will be an ever evolving journey for all of us through out our careers in healthcare. Over time, events and interactions with others will shift how we lead and thus change our “leadership journey”.
This week, choose someone to conduct a “leadership journey interview” with. Understanding someone’s leadership journey is different than simply understanding their career history, though of course that will be a part of it. In understanding a leadership journey, you will want to ask about:

  • What the person’s view of leadership is now? What was it when they started?
    -What were pivotal moments in their journey that changed how they chose to lead?
    -Who do they refer as great leaders? Why?
    -What do they feel is important when working with others?
    -What would they like to share about leadership that they feel has been of great value?

Leadership styles apply to social work; a social worker’s role is to listen to their clients’ grievances and offer ultimately emotional support. A leader serves the people; his role is to represent the people; thus, he/she should also know their problems then provide a solution. Several leadership styles apply to social work, such as affiliative leadership, which is essential for a leader’s values and puts their people first. The same case applies to social work; in general, the clients or people are placed above everything else to achieve their emotional and psychological strength. Coaching style also applies as the name suggests; the social worker coaches their clients through their problems and improves their performance even for the future.
Personal emotional intelligence strengths
My strengths are self-confidence, almost all the time; I feel high after handing a client since something always tells me way before the results arise “they are going to be alright; you have done your best.” I have a strength in empathy; I concluded this by viewing how I relate to clients’ emotions and changes when they open up. I also do well with self-control. Every day, I successfully juggle up between different clients with different feelings and emotional challenges and I have never had an emotional breakdown during even the most touching sessions. I am an extrovert; thus, communication has never been a problem; I see this from my social interactions with people around me. I enjoy socializing, and through socializing, I often get to attain the clients’ trust, thus get maximum transparency.
