Servant leaders must be internally consistent with their words and actions. Describe a mentor that you have had that displayed this kind of credibility. Share an example of what you witnessed from this person. Based on the text, contrast your response to the secular view of power.
A mentor who demonstrated servant leadership is the former CEO of General Electric; Jack Welch. Welch believes that a good leader creates a vision and shares it with his team members and steers the employees in order to achieve this vision (Riggio & Tan, n.d.). He also believed that a good leader has to energize his employees with positive energy in order to accomplish the set goals and objectives. Jack Welch put these terms into practice. Firstly, Welch created the vision of making General Electric a global competitor, shared this vision with all stakeholders, and inspired them in achieving this vision. Secondly, he led by example by energizing his teams with positive energy towards achieving the defined goals. He energized his employees and increased their cohesion and productivity.
According to the secular view of power, personal visions, values, and perceptions should not affect authority and activities in the workplace. This is contrary to what Welch believed and put into practice, sharing personal perceptions regarding changes and vision of his organization. If Welch had not shared his feelings for the need to transform the organization, the company would not have achieved the great increase in profits and revenue.

Leadership is an ability that justifies continuous research. A few reasons add to this affirmation. Above all else, with regards to wellbeing administrations, this is because of the idea of the talks which have been about the enhancement of assets with the most noteworthy nature of administrations advertised. Furthermore, this is because of the desires for associations on the job of the pioneer in dealing with his group in the quest for regular targets. Moreover, as an outcome of the above, there is a need to fulfill the client to guarantee a reasonable framework.
The Head Nurse is exceedingly associated with these means. As a pioneer, he should try to create individuals so the association of which they are a section will have the capacity to give a decent level of administration (Jennings.et.al, 2017).
Patients admitted to units that have nursing groups which have: adequate number of staff and an authoritative structure which encourages great relations among specialists and attendants, brought about abnormal amounts of fulfillment with reference to the consideration got and low levels of burnout rates among representatives. This positive evaluation from the customer was additionally identified with the earth of employment hones and with the administration of nursing.
In light of this outcome, the connection between the workplace and administration ought to be examined further. This is because of the way that, at work, medical attendants are actuated to utilize their abilities in view of their own goals and on what the association expects of their execution.
Presently, there is a lack of medical caretakers in clinical consideration, and great pioneers can encourage any weakening. Besides, the initiative abilities of medical caretaker overseers can add to the achievement of their association (Lockwood, 2013). The administration is of expanding significance in clinical nursing. Despite the fact that initiative and hierarchical culture builds have been very much contemplated, the connection between them has not been set up in the field of nursing. This examination investigates the connection between authoritative culture and administration conduct.
Administration demonstrates tests have been a zone of enthusiasm for scientists. Truth be told, researching how a specific authority style bolsters the activity of administration and the correlation with the mediating factors involve an approach to make the activity of initiative more merged and organized (Small.et.al, 2014).
Impact of administration style on the workplace is outstanding. Its effects can advance cooperative energy or the crumbling of the group. In this way, it is up to pioneers to reconsider the manner in which they lead their groups. Their states of mind are basic to the expert vocations of their subordinates and furthermore to the association to which they have a place.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act and controls set out clear prerequisites for making a sheltered and sound physical workplace. Pioneers go past gathering their lawful commitments and look for rather meet the soul of the law – realizing that authoritative execution relies upon solid, protected, drew in workers.
Supporting inside their organizations for representative wellbeing and security is a key, achievable and basic job for official pioneers that resounds capably at both a corporate and social level. The business case for wellbeing and security reverberates whether the association is persuaded by its primary concern, notoriety, or corporate social duty.
The administration can exhibit an expert yet inviting a state of mind in the work environment. Change must be normal by workers when administration actualizes it first. As indicated by the attribute hypothesis of the initiative, one must be very much furnished with a specific arrangement of individual characteristics and qualities, for example, insight, practical insight, conclusiveness and so forth for the general population to tail him. With a specific end goal to fortify this conduct, it must be granted and acknowledged when followed up on. The law of impact and fortification hypothesis can be used, which says that an ideal delayed consequence fortifies the activity that delivered it. This implies activities taken after by fulfillment will turn out to be solidly joined to the circumstance and hence will probably happen.
Pioneers outstandingly affect authoritative culture. Representatives have a tendency to take after pioneers in proficient and social courses prompting an expansive effect on the association, all in all, Leadership is normally characterized as building up a reasonable vision, correspondence it and settling the quick clashes among the workers or confronting the association all in all. Pioneers are entrusted with proficiently managing authoritative objective accomplishment while considering colleague abilities basic to deliver the coveted profitability. Since authority is a part of the administration, it is important to build up that the administration is all around outfitted with initiative aptitudes. Successful administration can impact the hierarchical qualities, for example, trustworthiness, regard, morals and resilience and so on by showing a perfect demeanor in the working environment, setting up a dream among the representatives, fortifying responsibility, spurring the workers, making a dream arrangement for the way of life and values and by training the associates (Pearson.et.al, 2017).
Being straightforward is an intense thing on the off chance that you can confide in yourself and be trusted by others. The reason most pioneers are not straightforward is that they trust they will be seen as less legitimate; that the certifications they worked so difficult to accomplish will lose their capacity, use, and gravitas. This is the issue with most pioneers, they don’t know about the truth that exists around them. Individuals need to identify with its pioneers. Individuals need to realize that their pioneers have encountered similar issues as well as how they have defeated individual hardships (Scoble & Russel, 2014).
The computerized age has enabled individuals to take in more about their pioneers. In that capacity, online networking has all of a sudden gives individual the consent to enter a pioneer’s close to home space; a place they were already disallowed from entering. The advanced age has changed the levels of straightforwardness that we anticipate from individuals as well.

A credible person will do what they say. Describe a time when you felt free in displaying your integrity at work. Describe a time when you felt fearful displaying your integrity at work. What was the determining factor(s) that allowed you to lead by example versus going against your heart? If you never felt free in displaying your integrity at work, describe what conditions would need to exist for you to do so?
I was working as an intern in one health organization in my previous summer vacation and witnessed something such that I felt to display my integrity at work. I had worked for two months when a new albino lady joined the organization as an intern as well. She was given a supervisor who delegated all her work to her and merely did anything especially when our manager was not in the office. I felt she discriminated against the intern and I felt the need to tell our manager about the situation and reported her since she could not compromise me in my work.
In another situation, my supervisor used to prescribe patients with medication and told them to buy from a certain pharmacy which turned out to be his, even when the healthcare facility had cheaper medication. I feared to report him to the higher management since he was my supervisor and could have terminated my internship at the facility. If I was guaranteed to continue with the internship and not harshness between me and my supervisor, I would have displayed integrity and reported him.
