Role of a leader

1. Choose a Leadership style you most identify with and share the major points. Describe how this style is most fitting in your professional role. Do you know other nurse leaders with this style? What nurse leader traits do you want to resemble as your own leader?
2. Share your own cultural background and how culture influences healthcare practices in your own families. How would you use this personal perspective as a nurse leader?
3. Why is it necessary to understand values, beliefs, and rituals held by culturally diverse staff and patients? What implications would cultural sensitivity have for you as a nurse leader or manager? What specific tools could you use to incorporate cultural diversity into your practice setting?
