During the Victorian Age, the upper class became very wealthy in part by exploiting the lower classes. For America to become a great and wealthy nation, was the exuberance and disparity of the Victorian age justified? Explain why.

No, it is not justified. For any country to become great the exuberance and disparity of wealth is not necessary. The Victorian America is the period during the Victorian era which influenced the living conditions, religion, culture and other features of America. The Civil War brought a change in the American culture. The influence of the Victorian culture was largely seen after the Civil War. During the time of Victorian America, the rich and powerful  were not certain about the culture to be followed. In this scepticism they adopted the European culture. The aristocrats were having a great time at the expense of the down trodden. Education was a right of rich families, they got the best education. The rich had an advantage over everything from jobs and  education to basic needs as food and shelter. They did not care about the issues faces by the poor and chose to display their wealth in front of them. This gave rise to a massive class divide. There was a widespread discontent among the exploited class. This imbalance restricts the growth of a country and takes it on a brink of a revolution.

In the Victorian era, the upper class (which refers to the aristocracy) did not become wealthy by exploiting the lower classes. The upper-classes were already wealthy. Much of their wealth came from their already established rural estates, which generated income through rural tenancies. The tenants of the landed gentry generally had it pretty good, compared to smallholders or to those working in industries in cities. The relationship between rural tenants and their aristocratic landlords on rural estates was generally good. In the Victorian era, the Lord of the Manor was often benevolent, well-respected and considered to be a pillar of the community. They were big employers and many of their workers had a decent cottage to go with their job. Even the servants of these aristocrats generally had it well off. The only real problem was that women staff were generally expected not to marry.

The exploitation of the poor during the Victorian era was from the wealthy industrialists, who operated mines and factories with long working hours, poor working conditions and poor pay. Private (non-aristocratic) landlords also exploited the poor by providing cheap, over-crowded housing in cities usually in back-to-back type accommodation with poor sanitary conditions.

Perhaps one of the best kept secrets of modern Britain (and other European countries too, including Sweden) is that this aristocratic tradition of landlord and tenants still continues, and to have a tenancy on one of these estates is to have a house for life. They will never throw you out, and their rent is generally lower than what most private companies or landlords would charge. I’d be more than happy to have one of these tenancies, especially in retirement.

With regard to the USA, I assume by upper-class you are referring to the wealthy industrialists and financiers, forming the top tier of US society? I don’t think any of them were considered upper-class until the late Edwardian era. By then, if they were wealthy and successful, had a good education, good social connections and of course knew all the social etiquette and norms of the day, they would be considered to be on par with the lowest tier of the aristocracy of Europe.

C.Z. presents with delusion, hallucination, trouble focusing, thought disorders, and speech difficulties. These symptoms suggest C.Z. has schizophrenia, as defined by the American Psychological Association

 

C.Z. Case Discussion

C.Z. presents with delusion, hallucination, trouble focusing, thought disorders, and speech difficulties. These symptoms suggest C.Z. has schizophrenia, as defined by the American Psychological Association (APA; 2020). Also, DSM-V include 2 or more criteria present for a significant portion of time during 1 month period, C.Z. has delusion, hallucination This paper describes schizophrenia’s etiology, course, associated abnormalities, and management.

Etiology

Schizophrenia’s etiology includes several possible causes. Potential causes include heredity, stressful events, alcohol, and substances use, especially amphetamine and cannabis, and perinatal, neuroanatomic, and neurodevelopmental factors (Rosenthal & Burchum, 2021; Hany et al., 2022). Social isolation, childhood trauma, family history, and urbanization also heighten risk (Hany et al., 2022). However, the specific cause is unknown.

Course

The course of schizophrenia is varied. Some patients may show subtle, gradual changes before schizophrenia symptoms manifest (Rosenthal & Burchum, 2021). Once the illness develops, acute episodes feature delusions and hallucinations symptoms (Rosenthal & Burchum, 2021). Patients may have less vivid residual symptoms after the acute episode, including suspiciousness, diminished judgment, reduced self-care capacity, and poor anxiety management (Rosenthal & Burchum, 2021). The condition’s long-term course features episodic acute exacerbations with partial remission intervals with progressive decline in social functioning and mental status becoming evident with time (Rosenthal & Burchum, 2021). Others may have continuous symptoms. Appropriate treatment can prevent long-term deterioration and reduce acute relapse risk.

Structural/Functional Abnormalities

Notably, schizophrenia is linked to structural and functional abnormalities. Imaging tests have shown structural abnormalities, including disrupted white matter integrity and reduced gray matter volume in parietal and temporal regions (Zhao et al., 2018). Functional abnormalities are present since schizophrenia is linked to a dysregulation of dopaminergic signaling and increased striatal activity (Zhao et al., 2018). Other functional abnormalities include abnormal neural activity and emotional and cognitive dysfunction (Zhao et al., 2018). Notably, the abnormalities occur over the disease’s course, with Zhao et al. (2018) observing abnormalities before symptoms emerge and becoming more evident with the onset of the illness.

Treatment

Pharmacotherapy is recommended for schizophrenia for symptom management to enhance and maintain recovery. APA (2020) guidelines recommend antipsychotics for patients with schizophrenia (Keepers et al., 2020). Medications for this disorder could be classified typical and atypicals, the first one also by binding affinity with D2 receptor: low, medium, and high.

High potency we have by PO/IM/IV routes, Haloperidol 2,5-30 mg mg/d orally, half-life 12-38 hours.IM immediate release injection 2.5 mg each dose. LAI every 4 weeks 10-20 daily dose of oral. Overlap PO x 2-3 weeks. 100 mg limit for first dose.

Fluphenazine PO/IM 1-20 mg daily; half-life 15 hours. IM immediate release 1.25 mg initial doses. 2.5-10 mg/d q 6-8 hours. LAI 12.5-25 mg q 3 weeks.

Mid Potency: Perphenazine 4-8 mg TID or 8-16 mg BID, max 64 mg; IM release injection 5 mg. Loxapine: 10 mg BID, titrate over 1 week, 60-100 mg/d in divided doses.

Low Potency: Chlorpromazine PO/IM/IV dose 50-600 mg/day. IM formulation 50 mg/IM often used for agitation.

Second Generation Antipsychotics:”Atypicals”

*Serotonin antagonism more than dopamine antagonism, improve cognition, negative sx, and mood

Aripiprazole: 10-30 mg single dose (half-life 75 hours) LAI: 400 mg IM, q4 weeks.

Asenapine: 10-20 mg BID dosing

Clozapine: 25 mg daily, increase 25-50 mg daily, target dose 300-450 mg

LLoperidone: 8-32 mg daily, half-life 12-15 hours

Lurasidone: 40-160 mg daily

Olanzapine: 5-20 mg daily

Quetiepine: 25-50-400-800 mg daily

Risperidone: 1-2 mg/day, final 4-6 mg/d. half-life 3 hours. LAI 25-50 mg q2weeks, increase dose in 12.5 mg interval

The initial goal of acute treatment should be reduce acute symptoms, trying to return the patient to his baseline level. The choice of medication depends on many factors: patient treatment preferences and previous patient treatment response, presence of other cognitive impairment. Because a first episode of psychosis may respond more rapid and require less dose, the recommended dose is one-quarter to one-half of the usual dose.

Clinical experience suggests many patients are cooperative with Clozapine. The potential benefit of this recommendation outweigh the potential harms.

Patients must be monitored closely for response and side effects since this can influence treatment (APA, 2020). Notably, pharmacotherapy should be person-centered to enhance effectiveness, and that treatment should continue even when improvement is observed. Second generation antipsychotics have lower risk of EPS/TD but greater metabolic effect. Consider long-acting injectables right away.

Notably, pharmacotherapy is coupled with nonpharmacological interventions to enhance schizophrenia treatment. Address stress, family needs, supportive employment, social skills training, assertive community treatment. Family involvement and education, increase community connection, and minimize exposure to MJ, stimulants.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy for psychosis (CBT) is linked to benefits, including improved QoL and social, occupational, and global functioning while reducing illness-related symptoms (APA, 2020; Keepers et al., 2020). This intervention involves establishing a nonjudgmental, collaborative therapeutic relationship helping the patient learn how to monitor the link between their feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and symptoms while evaluating their beliefs, thought processes, and perceptions leading to those symptoms (APA, 2020). Notably, CBT can help patient’s alternative, realistic, and healthier explanations for their maladaptive cognitive assumptions helping stop the perpetuation of hallucinatory experiences and delusional beliefs (APA, 2020). Psychoeducation is also a helpful intervention (APA, 2020). The combined pharmacotherapy and non-pharmacotherapy interventions could cumulatively help C.Z. reach the treatment goal.

Discussion 2

 

Schizophrenia often begins in early adulthood and proceeds chronically without remission. It is a medical condition that affects the brain, making patients who suffer from it interpret reality abnormally. The exact causes of schizophrenia are unknown. Research suggests a combination of physical, genetic, psychological, and environmental factors which can make a person more likely to develop the condition. (Muller et al., 2018) Some people may be prone to schizophrenia, and a stressful or emotional life event might trigger a psychotic episode. Worldwide, schizophrenia is one of the top 20 causes of disability and the lifetime prevalence of schizophrenia is estimated to be 0.7% (Muller et al, 2018).

In this scenario, C.Z. displays symptoms of schizophrenia. Hallucinations and delusions mark this disorder. He believes the lag in his internet speed is due to his campus security and local police surveillance. A person with schizophrenia will display fluid-filled ventricles in the brain that are enlarged, and the brain is more diminutive. The brain that controls speech, language, and movement is abnormal in a person with schizophrenia. This illness is chronic. It is a severe mental illness that affects both males and females. Although schizophrenia can occur at any age, the average age of onset tends to be in the late teens to the early 20s for men and the late 20s to early 30s for women. It is uncommon for schizophrenia to be diagnosed in someone younger than 12 or older than 40. It is possible to live well with schizophrenia. Some people have episodes of illness lasting weeks or months with total remission of symptoms between each episode; others have a fluctuating course in which symptoms are continuous; others again have extraordinarily slight variations in their signs of illness over the period of years. (Stepnicki et al., 2018)

Treatment for people with schizophrenia includes cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive remediation, psychoeducation, social and coping skills, family intervention, and assertive community treatment. Providers must use effective interviewing strategies the patient’s trust and allow the patient to share more information. Caregivers must learn to practice active listening to gain the patient’s confidence. When speaking to C. Z. he may be nervous, and we need to make him feel heard and understood. Providers must also remember the patient believes that the hallucinations and delusions are real. When treating the patient with medicines, antipsychotics are recommended as the initial treatment for the symptoms of an acute schizophrenia episode. Clozapine is the most effective antipsychotic in managing treatment-resistant schizophrenia (Stepnicki et al., 2018).  This drug is approximately 30% effective in controlling schizophrenic episodes in treatment-resistant patients, compared with a 4% efficacy rate with the combination of chlorpromazine and benztropine. Antipsychotics work by blocking the effect of the chemical dopamine on the brain. Maintenance treatment has shown the newer-generation antipsychotics risperidone and olanzapine to be more efficacious and to have a more favorable side effect profile than conventional-generation antipsychotics (Stepnicki et al, 2018). If patients’ hallucinations and delusions can be controlled, they may have a better chance of living everyday life while following their treatment plan.

Explain signs and symptoms for your diagnosis, pharmacological treatments, nonpharmacological treatments, and appropriate community resources and referrals.

Patient education is an effective tool in supporting compliance and treatment for a diagnosis. It is important to consider effective ways to educate patients and their families about a diagnosis—such as coaching, brochures, or videos—and to recognize that the efficacy of any materials may differ based on the needs and learning preferences of a particular patient. Because patients or their families may be overwhelmed with a new diagnosis, it is important that materials provided by the practitioner clearly outline the information that patients need to know.

The theory of unpleasant symptoms is consequential in-patient assessment and remains valuable to nursing. Out of the many tenets of nursing care, a comprehensive review of symptoms is important, as nurses are deeply involved in evaluating or quantifying them, assessing what alleviates or aggravates them, and monitoring them for patient progress. Thus, the theory of unpleasant symptoms, which has three main sections, was advanced to shed light on the features of symptoms and facilitate nursing practice (Lenz, 2018). According to the theory, the presentation of a symptom results from the reciprocal influence of the proceeding psychological, situational, and physiological factors (Blakeman, 2019; Gomes et al., 2019). The theory further explains how multifaceted and interrelated symptoms are and focuses on how this relationship affects the ultimate performance of the patient. As established, the review of presenting symptoms and knowledge of the parameters that cover their subsequent management is important in the delivery of nursing care. Hence, the theory of unpleasant symptoms is crucial in patient assessment, especially in nursing. This article aims to use it as a blueprint in explaining what an ideal or effective assessment tool should look like.

An effective assessment tool should consistently apply information from the theory. Drawing from the first part of the theory (symptom), an assessment tool should comprehensively survey the severity of the presenting symptom (Lenz, 2018). Along the same lines, the tool should also go to the lengths of evaluating the timeliness and specific attributes of the symptom in relation to the level of the affliction of the patient. Ultimately in this section, the tool should assess for other symptoms which may not be related to the condition whose impression has been made. In line with the second section of the theory (influencing factors), an assessment tool should holistically survey for any situational, environmental, psychological, and physiological factors influencing the occurrence of the presenting symptoms (Lenz, 2018). This should be done regularly and progressively to alleviate the effects of these factors and monitor for changes in the patient’s condition. Lastly, in the performance outcomes section, the assessment tool should evaluate how well a patient can function on parameters such as daily activities. The incorporation of all this would ensure that the assessment tool is effective.

To conclude, symptoms are indeed one of the cores of nursing care. The theory of unpleasant symptoms is important as it facilitates a better understanding of the intricacies of symptoms. The theory contains the following sections: Symptom, Influencing Factors, and Outcome of performance. These can be used to build an assessment tool in nursing that is not only comprehensive but also effective. Hence, the theory of unpleasant symptoms is crucial to nursing care.

Health care providers tend to play a significant role in analyzing the symptoms which are experienced by the patient. Therefore, nurses should focus on examining patients’ symptoms in order for the best medical intervention to be applied. When the symptoms are evaluated, nurses are able to assess various factors that result in the development of such symptoms, thus establishing devise management as well as prevention strategies in dealing with symptoms (Mikšić et al., 2019). Besides, nurses help their clients in with self-management based on the symptoms indicated hence being able to conduct ongoing monitoring. One vital approach to assist nurses in assessing the patient systems is the Theory of unpleasant symptoms. This approach is significant since it identifies crucial characteristics of the symptoms. As a result, these guide the nursing practice as well as research. In addition, the theory of unpleasant symptoms tends to provide details regarding the nurse’s interest in an assessment tool while assessing patient symptoms (Kalantar-Zadeh et al., 2022).

There are several aspects which nursing practitioners focus on when searching for the tool to assess the patient’s symptoms. For instance, the patient’s self-reported symptoms should be contained as it is explained in the assessment tool. After this, the nurse derives the effects of the illness, thus the most favorable treatment for self-reported symptoms. Furthermore, the assessment tool which the nursing practitioner selects should determine various factors which influence the symptoms reported by the patient. This theory also focuses on the patient’s symptoms, thus defining them subjectively as the patients have reported them. Another aspect which is vital to evaluate the tool to assess the patient’s symptoms is the ability to evaluate factors influencing certain symptoms due to gender, variables allied to the health conditions, and age (Blakeman, 2019). These factors might affect the patient’s perception of the symptoms.

Also, the theory considers the physical and social environment outside the patient, which may affect the reported symptoms. As a result, the assessment tools need to address child development, growth, physiology, and situational issues, among others. All these issues are essential since they allow the nurse to have a better comprehension of the patient’s condition. Therefore, the Theory of unpleasant symptoms helps the health care provider select the best assessment tool to examine the patient’s symptoms for the establishment of a treatment care plan to be provided (Seo, Ryu & Ham, 2018). Nevertheless, the assessment tool selected should describe key elements such as the identity of the patient’s symptoms, factors that influence the symptoms, and the performance outcome.

Develop and submit a personal leadership philosophy that reflects what you think are characteristics of a good leader.

Assignment: Personal Leadership Philosophies Many of us can think of leaders we have come to admire, be they historical figures, pillars of the industry we work in, or leaders we know personally. The leadership of individuals such as Abraham Lincoln and Margaret Thatcher has been studied and discussed repeatedly. However, you may have interacted with leaders you feel demonstrated equally competent leadership without ever having a book written about their approaches. What makes great leaders great? Every leader is different, of course, but one area of commonality is the leadership philosophy that great leaders develop and practice. A leadership philosophy is basically an attitude held by leaders that acts as a guiding principle for their behavior. While formal theories on leadership continue to evolve over time, great leaders seem to adhere to an overarching philosophy that steers their actions. What is your leadership philosophy? In this Assignment, you will explore what guides your own leadership. To Prepare: Identify two to three scholarly resources, that evaluate the impact of leadership behaviors in creating healthy work environments. Reflect on the leadership behaviors presented in the three resources that you selected for review. Reflect on your results of the CliftonStrengths Assessment*, and consider how the results relate to your leadership traits. The Assignment (2-3 pages): Personal Leadership Philosophies Develop and submit a personal leadership philosophy that reflects what you think are characteristics of a good leader. Use the scholarly resources on leadership you selected to support your philosophy statement. Your personal leadership philosophy should include the following: A description of your core values. A personal mission and vision statement. An analysis of your CliftonStrengths Assessment summarizing the results of your profile A description of two key behaviors that you wish to strengthen. A development plan that explains how you plan to improve upon the two key behaviors you selected and an explanation of how you plan to achieve your personal vision. Be specific and provide examples.

Personal leadership: what is it?

In corporate settings, personal leadership is a topic that is regularly discussed but not as frequently practiced as a leadership objective. In order to have a positive impact on the culture of your organization, it takes being clear about what you personally demand from yourself and others.

People must be able to decide for themselves and accept accountability for their actions. When corporate structures and leaders seek to exercise control over every area of an organization’s functioning, this can be challenging. People who can choose the scenarios they need to affect as well as define what it will take for them to gauge their performance are needed while using the Personal Leadership ideology.

Personal Leadership Philosophy

According to this ideology, people are capable of making decisions and accepting responsibility for their own acts. Using this strategy entails making daily decisions on how to allocate our personal and professional energies.

Leadership necessitates decision-making and accountability. We must choose how to use the energy we each have because we all have the same quantity to use, more or less. In this strategy, the leader’s responsibility also includes being aware of the decisions and actions performed; this is referred to as “presence.”

Presence- being conscious of decisions and actions.

Being present implies being conscious of both the things we choose and the things that are chosen for us by other people, whether they be coworkers or managers in a higher position in the organization.

In the current business climate, leaders are no longer in the forefront, instructing everyone what to do and how it should be done. It’s significant to highlight the existence of any leadership traits, abilities, or educational credentials in this situation. A leader is someone who devotes their energy to fostering a climate in which others are free to choose their own approaches to interacting with stakeholders, consumers, customers, and other groups within the system.

The core ideas behind the Personal Leadership concept

How leaders spend their time and energy to their personal practice is among the most crucial factors they must take into account.

You can use time more effectively to increase your productivity, but you can only do this if you know what your tasks are and can modify your time management for each assignment. With so much information at our disposal, information overload is simple to develop.

One must have the skills necessary to maintain their own email accounts, voicemail boxes, non-voicemail communications, etc., in addition to holding meetings with team members that include careful planning and keeping to commitments made. Strong working connections between team members are ensured by having clear expectations with each individual.

To get the best results at work, you must be willing to change these personal behaviors. But at the end of the day, one needs to make judgments while also giving them the opportunity to offer feedback.

 

Of course, the Personal Leadership philosophy has many more requirements; some of them apply only to you personally, while others require you to collaborate with your team. Nevertheless, before assuming that something will or won’t work for them, people need to take all of these factors into account. The following are some things that a person should think about in relation to their chosen job on both a personal and professional level.

Challenges faced by leaders who are concentrating on their own individual leadership

One’s own practice can present some of the most difficult obstacles because of oneself rather than anyone else.

People must be willing to examine the jobs they are performing, the appropriate communication channels for them, and the proportion of time they spend working indoors as opposed to outdoors.

Knowing where you stand is crucial because everyone has varying amounts of energy that might be depleted dependent on these factors. This also relates to knowing your schedule and selecting activities wisely; that way, everyone will be aware of what has to be done and by when.

The difficulty here is to avoid comparing your behaviors to those of people around you because only you know what is best for you. Recognize this and take use of it.

Effective practices

When it comes to a person’s personal leadership philosophy, the most effective tactics essentially come down to altering how the leader communicates with subordinates, peers, or superiors.

Giving everyone engaged a clear understanding of what is expected lowers uncertainty and gives those receiving communication greater freedom to decide how to respond.

It’s crucial to avoid micromanaging in this situation as well; people prefer to feel empowered by accepting assignments than by being compelled to perform chores. This boosts morale, which fosters motivation without having an adverse effect on output.

Giving others the chance to weigh in is also beneficial, so long as it doesn’t divert attention from the main topic.

The best way to handle things is to have open discussions about what needs to be done, how it can be done, and by when so that everyone feels engaged in the process while also being informed of what is required of them. This results in happier workers, which boosts retention rates.

 

Making sure that they are doing something constructive every day and recharging their energy for potential future assignments that may spring up unexpectedly is a beneficial technique that leaders should engage in when focused on their own personal leadership.

 

You can better steer your route forward both personally and professionally if you are aware of your skills, limitations, preferences, and other personal traits. Even in a highly competitive environment, it is not simple but vital to achieve this.

 

What personal leadership qualities should effective leaders have?

To get the best results at work, it’s critical to be willing to change these personal behaviors. People want someone who can make decisions while also allowing them to offer feedback, at the end of the day.

Empathy is a quality that cannot be overlooked in this discussion since it helps you understand other people’s motivations and how to best guide your own ship toward success as a transformational leader.

The following are some things to think about:

 

  • Leaders should be adaptable in their communication style, the location from which they communicate (at home, at work, etc.), and the frequency of their communications. This is a crucial component of leadership.
  • For best results at work, highly effective leaders should be willing to change their personal routines because doing so gives them more freedom to make judgments and gives those receiving communication more options for how to respond.
  • You should be able to demonstrate empathy and put yourself in others’ situations as a leader.

Statement examples

When it comes to making decisions, the following traits of a leader are beneficial to take into account:

 

  • Flexible communication – expressing well-considered thoughts in a way that is both sincere and unlikely to offend; communicating verbally or in person;
  • being able to use various communication channels at any time without divulging crucial information;
  • flexibility in decision-making – being honest, unbiased, and comprehensive in your selections;
  • Be the kind of leader that communicates clearly and succinctly, without being confusing or overly complicated, and who is able to have a great conversation while focusing on the most important factors in a given circumstance.

Example of Personal Leadership

An excellent illustration is when someone tries to make a choice that has an immediate impact on how something turns out for someone else.

You can show someone else how to communicate clearly and succinctly by exercising flexibility, openness, objectivity, and thoroughness in your decision-making.

Another illustration from before is when someone can be empathic by placing themselves in another person’s shoes.

People frequently look up to excellent leaders who can respond quickly and wisely while maintaining complete self-awareness in any given situation. This way, they can have someone to look up to for inspiration and guidance that will help them succeed.

David Green, the creator of Hobby Lobby, is an actual example of a businessman who demonstrates personal leadership. According to reports, David shows a great deal of empathy for both his staff members and the employees at Hobby Lobby.

David “says one of the keys to his success is giving,” according to the CBN interview and article titled “Hobby Lobby CEO Reaps the Benefits of Generosity.” He has mastered the art of managing his finances with a heavenly perspective.

This demonstrates how he views leadership as the outcome of generosity, empathy, honesty, flexibility, and giving, which is an example of his personal leadership philosophy.

Individualization

 

SHARED THEME DESCRIPTION

 

People who are especially talented in the Individualization theme are intrigued with the unique qualities of each person. They have a gift for figuring out how people who are different can work together productively.

 

YOUR PERSONALIZED STRENGTHS INSIGHTS

 

What makes you stand out?

 

Driven by your talents, you occasionally pinpoint the unique qualities, motivations, strengths, limitations, preferences, or attitudes of certain people. Perhaps you look for one or two good things in each person. Maybe this information permits you to set up opportunities for particular individuals to cooperate. You might compliment those who freely share bits of their knowledge, skills, or talents with their teammates, classmates, colleagues, coworkers, friends, or family members. It’s very likely that you may be willing to juggle multiple tasks at the same time when it helps a person or a group handle a complicated project. Perhaps individuals who do their best work when they can concentrate on one activity appreciate having you as a partner. Instinctively, you occasionally lighten others’ loads by taking on part of their burdens. Maybe you are more likely to help individuals who speak candidly to you about your shortcomings because you feel their comments are helpful rather than harmful. By nature, you sometimes marvel at your ability to personally sense the feelings of other people and experience situations from their perspectives. Perhaps you feel good about yourself and life in general when you put aside your opinions, biases, or preferences. Maybe your satisfaction comes from figuring out why someone behaves, feels, or thinks differently than you do. Chances are good that you sometimes ask people questions so you can collect background information. Maybe the insights you gather make it a bit easier to pinpoint what makes this person totally different from everyone else. You might be fascinated by the diversity of human beings.

What makes you stand out?

 

It’s very likely that you periodically give yourself credit for being well-read. You might peruse — that is, studiously examine — written materials because you want to, not because you have to. In the process, you may accumulate facts, data, information, background, or insights into various subjects or a favorite topic. Instinctively, you may be drawn to certain types of books, research reports, journals, or printed material that appeal to a select group of individuals. Over time, you might add uncommon words to your vocabulary. Perhaps you feel joy when you read. You may experience satisfaction when using complicated terms in conversations or correspondence. When you speak the language of thinkers, sometimes you can comprehend parts of their theories, concepts, or philosophies others cannot. Chances are good that you may be able to compel some individuals or groups to move into action by using official-sounding words. Your extensive vocabulary might contain hard-to-understand terminology that sets you apart. Perhaps you speak with an air of authority that you fail to hear. So, if you display impatience and say, “Let’s get started right now!” people might refrain from questioning your order. Because of your strengths, you may long to gather certain types of information about specific individuals. Perhaps your “need to know” is rarely satisfied. The more facts you gather, the easier it might be for you to understand someone’s strengths, limitations, interests, likes, dislikes, or goals. You might be inclined to study human beings one by one. To some degree, your ongoing observations of selected individuals provide you with interesting insights into human nature. By nature, you occasionally wade into the middle of certain thought-provoking conversations. Perhaps you speak theoretically — that is, talk about things that have not been invented, proved, produced, or put into practice. Parts of your vocabulary may be as complicated as your thinking. This might explain why you consider at length specific insights, concepts, or philosophies. Maybe you prefer talking with individuals who instantly grasp the meaning of your sophisticated words.

It’s very likely that you exhibit some awareness of the changing moods of people. Perhaps you can understand the feelings they have about themselves, each other, or their experiences. Maybe these insights permit you to respond to each one in a fitting way. Instinctively, you sometimes have quick and ready insights into what individuals are sensing. Perhaps your instincts allow you to ask questions in the right way. In your dealings with people, you might know the best time to speak, listen, advise, or praise.

Leadership Profile

Results from the StrengthsFinder assessment

Every person has identifiable leadership strengths, areas in which a person thrives or excels. But people usually fail to identify these strengths. Consequently, many times, people use their strengths ineffectively or fail to use them at all.  Completing a Gallup strength finder assessment can help individuals recognize their areas of strength. An individual’s strengths are key to the personality of the individual (Northouse, 2017). After completing the Clifton strengths finder assessment, the top 5 signature themes of talents that emerged were achiever, empathy, responsibility, positivity,   and harmony NURS 6053 Your Leadership Profile discussion essay.

ORDER A PLAGIARISM-FREE PAPER HERE

The achiever theme assists me to explain my drive. Being an achiever, I always make a tangible achievement at the end of the day to feel good about myself. Empathy means that I can sense the emotions of the people around me and help them express their feelings. Harmony means that I am talented in living in agreement with other people. In my view, nothing good can be gained from friction and conflict, so I seek to hold conflicts at a minimum. Positivity means that I lookout for the positive in any situation and try my best to avoid negativity no matter the setbacks I encounter.   The responsibility theme compels me to take ownership of all the things in commit to and I feel psychologically bound to follow them through to completion NURS 6053 Your Leadership Profile discussion essay.

Strengths, core values, and characteristics I would like to strengthen

The two strengths I would like to strengthen communication and relator.  Strengths are derived from possessing particular talents and then additionally developing these talents by attaining additional practice, skills, and knowledge (Northouse, 2017). I can strengthen the talent of being an excellent communicator by learning about the difficulties of effective communication and seeking the help of a communications expert to assist me develops public communication skills. When one possesses the strength in relator, they have a profound relational capability to develop relationships with all people. I can achieve this by creating a space for the formation of strong relationships. By strengthening the relator theme, I can create the appropriate environment for members of the team to form close, trusting and honest relationships.

Communication and relationship building are two characteristics that I would like to strengthen.  A nurse leader I must be capable of and managing relationships with numerous persons because teamwork and collaboration are essential in the delivery of quality care. Effective communication is essential to the management of any relationship, but they are in particular crucial to a nurse leader who is required to engage in a wide range of relationships. According to Yoost and Crawford, (2015 communication is the basis of the practice of nursing. Communication skills are crucial for the work of the nurse and any other nurse.  NURS 6053 Your Leadership Profile discussion essay. Through the development of good communication skills, the nurse can get information, convey a plan, assign, and asses a care plan. The nurse interacts and develops relationships with co-workers, patients, and their families as well as other healthcare professionals and leaders. Both relationship building and effective communication are important for moving toward and achieving a common goal as well as resolving conflicts.

The two core values I would like to strengthen are altruism and human dignity. Altruism means being concerned about the well-being and welfare of others. Altruism in professional nursing practice is reflected by the nurse’s advocacy and concern for the wellbeing of patients, colleagues as well as other providers. Integrity means acting per the code of ethics and standards of practice (Murray, 2017).  When I strengthen my core values of altruism I will offer support to my followers and encourage act ethically when providing care and to develop caring relationships with each other and with the patients.

Complete the 6-slide Leadership and Conflict Management Presentation

Assignment Content

  1. In Wk 2, you proposed how you would build your own team. Now, your newly formed team is starting to work on its first real project that needs to have strong collaboration and a quick turnaround. However, your team has encountered the following challenges:
    • One team member does not agree with the goal and keeps questioning the processes.
    • Two team members are having a personal conflict, and this is preventing them from collaborating on the project.
    • One team member is not engaged.
    • Review the Conflict Resolution Scenario to learn more about the conflict on your team, and explore options for resolving these conflicts prior to completing this assignment.

      Complete the 6-slide Leadership and Conflict Management Presentation template. Instructions for what to include in the presentation are provided in the speaker notes section for each slide, which can be accessed by clicking the View tab at the top, then clicking Notes. As you work through the presentation template, you will replace the instructions in the speaker notes section with actual speaker notes—that is, sentences that represent what you would say about each slide if you were to give the presentation in person. Speaker notes should be a minimum of 50 to 150 words per slide.

      Answer the following questions in your presentation:

    • What were your choices for managing conflict on your team?
    • What conflict resolution strategies did you employ to encourage collaboration and build consensus within a team? Are these strategies something you typically employ when confronted with a conflict? Why or why not?
    • How can you keep all employees on your team engaged? Provide examples.
    • Review the Microsoft® PowerPoint® resources to enhance your presentation:
    • Ensure You have installed Microsoft® Office 365 prior to beginning this assignment.
    • View PC- PowerPoint 2013 – View Speaker Notes or PC- PowerPoint – View Speaker Notes for a brief visual demonstration on adding speaker notes to your presentation.
    • You may conduct a search for Microsoft® PowerPoint® tutorials in the Media Library for additional assistance using Microsoft® PowerPoint®.
    • You may add pictures and graphics to enhance your presentation, and you are welcome to change the design layout of the presentation.
    • Conflict situations would be important aspects in the life of a person. These may take place in the work place or in family situations. In work place, conflicts are common. There may be different priorities that different people may be having which leads to these conflicts. One such example of work place conflict was in submission of projects, where, two groups out do each other in their attempt to seek attention. One of the situation is when two different teams have two different working styles. When one team prefers working in one form, and with a change in leadership, when there is a drastic change in the leadership style, the team refutes in a major form and has conflicts with the new leader.

      In such a situation, it is important that the new leader should be able to resolve the issues that the team is having, along with adjusting their working styles. If the leader further forces any form of styles to the team, the conflict further increases. It is important that the employees be treated with empathy as well as respect, which is the beginning step of work place conflicts.

      Steps in resolution of conflicts include:

      • Recognition of the fact that there is some problem present
      • Agreeing that there should be some resolution brought about between the parties
      • There have to be strategies put forward so that there should be identification of any attitude change that takes place within both the parties, Nd an attempt to reduce negative feelings.
      • Devising interventions

      The type of leadership employed here is paternalistic leadership, here, the leader recognises that any form of Anger or further reinforcements. Thus, though the leader keeps up an authoritarian form, they would take up a softer relationship with the group. He understands that it may not be very easy for people to adopt to newer methods or even accept them, and hence, he takes this softer approach.

STATEMENT ON THE INTEGRATION OF FAITH AND WORK

STATEMENT ON THE INTEGRATION OF FAITH AND WORK

A s a university, we believe that the message of Jesus Christ bears profound implications, not only for individuals, but also for society and the ways that we as individuals live within it. The Lord Jesus instructed His followers to live

as salt and light within society, which implies a call to live out our lives in ways that contribute to the common good. We are convinced that this call extends to the workplace and that our respective vocations represent vital opportunities to glorify God by serving others in ways that promote human flourishing. Therefore, by God’s grace, we seek to distinguish ourselves as a university by instilling a sense of vocational calling and purpose in our students, faculty and staff in accord with the following principles:

WE BELIEVE that God’s Word speaks authoritatively about creation, fall and redemption as well as the restoration of all things through Christ Jesus. Therefore, we are convinced that the Christian worldview offers hope of restoration, not only for individuals, but also for families, communities and societies in which individuals live, work and serve one another.

WE BELIEVE that God the Almighty created the world, placed human beings within it and blessed them by making them responsible for cultivating and caring for creation. Therefore, we are assured that our work within the world matters to God and our neighbors, and that we honor God by serving others in ways that promote human flourishing.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is both Savior and Lord and that all who follow Jesus should seek His Kingdom and His righteousness in relation to all aspects of human experience, including culture and society. Therefore, we have resolved to carry out our work within the public arena with compassion, justice and concern for the common good.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection secured abundant and eternal life for all who believe and that Christ transforms all that we say and do. Therefore, we are convinced that Grand Canyon University should positively impact those who study

at, work for and live near the university in ways that accord with the teachings of Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE that mankind was originally created in the image of God and given responsibility over creation, but that all have failed to fulfill their God-given purpose and responsibility. We believe that God redeems and restores men and women in Christ, creating them anew for the good works He has prepared them to do. Therefore, we are confident that the work we do is a part of God’s calling on our lives and a means by which we can glorify God as we meet others’ needs.

WE BELIEVE that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for salvation and that the work of God’s Spirit in the human heart invariably results in renewed purpose and the growth of Christ-like love for neighbors and neighborhoods. Therefore, we are certain that God is working to restore the broken lives and communities of this fallen world through the collective gifts, talents, skills and resources of those who have been transformed by the power of the gospel.

WE BELIEVE that salvation comes through Jesus Christ alone and involves redemption of the whole person. Therefore, we are convinced that the Christian life must involve compassion and care, not only for the spiritual needs of mankind, but also for basic physical needs that stem from poverty, oppression and injustice.

WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ and that evangelism and societal engagement are duties of the Christian life. Therefore, we are devoted to demonstrating the love of Jesus together as we share the gospel message and shape society according to the principles of His Kingdom.

WE BELIEVE that the gospel message denounces evil and injustice while offering hope for reconciliation to Christ and the restoration of human culture and society through Him. Therefore, we recognize and embrace the potential of human work for furthering the greater good and strive to further the good of the culture and the society through education and the embodiment of biblical principles related to goodness and justice.

“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” (Psalm 90:17).
