According to Marquis and Burton (2017), leaders and managers play an important role in any organization. Both roles are expected to promote the mission and vision of the hospital while producing an effective workplace (Marquis& Burton, 2017).However, leaders and mangers have different roles and expectations. There are also certain leadership competencies that health care leaders need (Marquis& Burton, 2017).

At my organization, there are a few leaders and managers in the surgical department. One person that comes into mind works in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU). This person has a lot of leadership qualities or competencies as in skills, abilities and knowledge(Marquis& Burton, 2017). Laurette (2013), describes in simple terms that leaders direct people and at the same time influence change. A leader is a person who motivates or influences workers to achieve a specified goal (Hinton, 2018).

There are three primary leadership styles: democratic, authoritarian and lasissez-faire (Marquis& Burton, 2017). Person “A” uses an authoritarian style that has worked effectively in the PACU. Their leadership style has allowed nurses to be engaged in the department, speak up and increase job satisfaction (Keys, 2014). Thus, empowering staff to provide superior care to patients which aligns with the organizations mission. Person “A” is definitely more focus on standards of work than hands-on work.

Mangers use resources to problem solve and control the environment around them, yet due not influence change (Laureat, 2012). They oversee assignments, budgeting, quality improvement among other daily tasks (Leach & McFarland, 2014). Person “B” is a manger of the operating room. They make and monitor personal and professional growth and provide career opportunities (Marquis& Burton, 2017). Person “B” is very committed to their work, has competence, and committed to working (Hinton, 2018).

There are many roles in healthcare. Leaders and managers have certain competencies or traits to contribute to the organization. Each role working together to support the organizations mission and values.
