Power and Influence in Healthcare Organizations

Impact of the Leadership Styles

Course Introduction

The “Power” in Healthcare Organizations refers to the ability of the leader to use his/her authority to make the necessary steps to have the others act in a certain way or agree on something. Leadership with power often results in those beneath you agreeing with what you've said as a healthcare leader, despite potentially not believing in the same thing. Those individuals may only agree with you due to the fear or worry of the rejection consequences. This type of leadership can limit honest collaboration as they simply accept your ideas in the belief it is more likely to result in reward over punishment accordingly.

Most of healthcare professionals are under the assumption that both Legitimate and Coercive Powers are the most effective leadership methods for influencing others to gain what the healthcare leaders need. Healthcare leaders who inspire, persuade and encourage their team members can achieve great results by creating common goals. For this reason, influencing others is essential and more than just giving commands.
