To prepare for this Discussion:
Review this week’s Learning Resources related to leadership and emotional intelligence.
Select and take one of the emotional intelligence (EI) assessments in your resources to determine your emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) related to your future career in healthcare management.
Complete the Emotional Intelligence Assessment Template in your Learning Resources. (Note: Print and keep this completed template handy; you will revisit your results in Week 6.)
Write a 1- to 2-page paper that identifies the following:
Explain the true value of leadership in decision-making.
Describe one decision your selected leaders from Good Samaritan Hospital made or might have made. Then, describe their leadership styles and how these leadership styles might influence their decision-making.
Using examples from your own personal work experience, how do employees perceive decision-making based on a healthcare manager’s leadership style?
What leadership decision-making style do you believe is most effective in a healthcare setting of your choice?
Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and additional scholarly sources as appropriate. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for Walden Students to ensure that your in-text citations and reference list are correct.
