Topic 2 DQ 1 Managers organizations Improving

Please respond with a paragraph to the following post, add citations and references:

Managers tend to concern themselves with the five functions of management; planning, organizing, staffing, directing and controlling. Managers are tasked with meeting the goals of the five functions while also remaining fiscally responsible to the institution, while leaders may not have formal authority yet have influence over staff in order to reach managements goals (GCU2108) This is where I feel that managers and leaders roles overlap. Charge nurses or leads tend to be the leaders of units while nurse manager are, well management.



In order to provide efficient quality care the managers must have a set of mission and values that are meaningful and achievable.

Management tends to be looked at as the enemy of the worker; out of touch with what is truly happening within the institution and that is sometimes unfortunately the case. When managers engage their staff and accept their input, it invokes trust between the two and engages staff to be more positive and proactive when asked by managers to change. As a manager I encourage my staff not just to tell what is wrong but to give me suggestions on how to fix the problem. My job then is to initiate their changes and reinforce how their input effected the change. Dwight Eisenhower said it best when he said, “Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you what them to do because they want to do it”.
