Learning from these mistakes, SHC spent considerable time and effort forming a selection team and gaining consensus for its new EMR system, which resulted in Epic as a clear winner. SHC has successfully involved stakeholders in the selection and implementation strategy; nevertheless, SHC leadership must keep in mind that many people within the organization may be wary of a new system given the frustration that was caused by the implementation of Carecast. The major factors that negatively affect EMR system implementation have to do with people – a lack of strong leadership and effective governance, along with suboptimal change readiness and stakeholder involvement. Inasmuch, SHC leadership must show a long-term commitment to transformation and implementation of the Epic system. Although it is not as common to start implementation with the front office, beginning a rollout with clinical applications would send a positive message to physicians that the new system was integral to the organizations core strategy rather than just an administrative exercise.
They are both mediators by profession so being able to talk things out and compromise is a huge part of their career and their lives. They exhibit a positive approach towards conflict because they consider the advantages and functions to conflict. The first scene of the movie, a mediation amongst divorcees, illustrates beautifully how they perceive conflict as positive. They know conflict is inevitable so the constructive way to approach conflict is as “a fact of life.” They believe conflict serves as the function of “bringing problems to the table.” They help people join together and clarify their goals. They help clear out resentments and help people understand each other.
The Ropes: “The Sincerest Form of Flattery” In chapter six of The Ropes, Stanley faces a new and different challenge that he must overcome. In this chapter, his boss, Kerry, is, “a stickler for detail and intolerant of incompetence.” Kerry is able to enforce this belief because of his tremendous knowledge and expertise. While working for Kerry, Stanley makes a mistake in front of a group of clients and Kerry quickly corrects him in an abrasive manner. Although Kerry publically embarrassed Stanley during the meeting, Stanley used the incident as a learning point in order to improve his own technical knowledge. Because Stanley admires Kerry, Stanley seeks to emulate his behavior; however, Stanley is unable to replicate Kerry’s power leaving
Things have to make sense in my own mind before I make a decision. Keirsey also states, “In their careers, Masterminds usually rise to positions of responsibility, for they work long and hard and are dedicated in their pursuit of goals, sparing neither their own time and effort nor that of their colleagues and employees. Problem-solving is highly stimulating to Masterminds, who love responding to tangled systems that require careful -1- sorting out. Ordinarily, they verbalize the positive and avoid comments of a negative nature; they are more interested in moving an organization forward than dwelling on mistakes of the past.” I agree with
Gregory S. Forest: Our success in the past has been largely due to out of the box creativity and qualitative team work which has resulted in high standards of performance. It is now time to put in a dose of brainstorming and lateral thinking to recognize the internal hassles that are affecting the general scheme of work. When things are not moving smoothly it’s essential to revisit the existing system and find out the root cause. The careful strategy planning that we use to create winning campaigns for our clients has to be brought in to solve the present impasse. Before an outsider tells us that we have a problem, we need to put our house in order.
He is well respected among his peers and is consulted regularly on difficult cases. Alan prides himself on his clinical practice, teaching and leadership capabilities. This was seen by his superior Susan Altomante, which resulted in Alan’s recent promotion. Despite Alan’s esteemed reputation for his clinical work, assuming this directors position is a huge change that Alan needs to greet with arms wide open. Though from a numbers standpoint, the practice seems to be fine, Alan needs to go against the “If it isn’t Broke, than don’t fix it” rule.
The old man who first changed his vote acknowledged this admirable transformational leadership quality when he commented: “it is not easy to stand alone against the ridicule of others. He gambled for support and I gave it to him”. A transformational leader is a role model: • He powerfully modeled having a thoughtful, investigative and inquiring mind to the rest of the jury members by re-examining the key evidences of the prosecutor and the 2 witnesses. Other members of the jury soon followed his example and started raising “reasonable doubts” which led to a unanimous “Not guilty” verdict. • He Frequently reinforces that the burden of proof is on the prosecution and that if there is reasonable doubt, then they should acquit the kid • This character has a very clear idea of what the goal is here.
In doing this he needs to be completely honest and open about everything even if it’s bad. Great communication among the team is crucial in the success of the project as well. Keeping the lines of communication open will increase productivity and let everyone know what’s going on even in the midst of their busy schedules. 3. What strategies might Jim employ to deal with a very busy team member such as Juanita Lopez?
Therefore, a conflict competent leader understands the principles, strengths and weaknesses of conflict and models appropriate learned behavior to foster a healthy organizational environment (Runde & Flanagan, 2007). From these definitions, Runde and Flanagan propose multiple ideas about conflict. Some of these thoughts indicate what recent research has suggested – that not all conflict is negative. Although this theme of positive conflict has been stressed numerous times, both the training and skill sets for people to handle positive conflict are extremely underdeveloped. Reflecting upon the statistic that most managers say – that 20-40% of their time in a work setting is spent dealing with conflict – the authors find it crucial to develop conflict competencies for leaders (Runde & Flanagan, 2007).
I believe that learning somewhat comes from being enthusiastic and always willing to try new things. It is very important for a business to always be open for change and the ability to try new technology and strategy in order to improve and become more efficient. Please link Mr. Cotes ideas on leadership to the requirements of a strategic leader. Please describe how learning is tied to both types of development. Mr. Cotes has several examples that show how he is a strategic leader and he gave an example of his dad who was dealing with a angry customer at his gas station and he always learned from that experience that you need to sometimes put your pride aside during times of business.
