The idea of people and organization developed and adapted in response challenges. (Sheila, 2012, p 35). In South Korea’s unique situation, in a state of armistice, the command and control leadership is considered to be an ideal to lead the military strongly and effectively based on 6 years Korean Army Nurse experience. Through this “Personal Leadership Vision Statement” essay, and work experience in the U.S., I could find a role model leadership, “Transformational Leadership”. Transformational leadership conceptualized by Burn and was thermionically progressed by Bass. According to Bass (1985) transformational leader’s four characters are developed. The first Characteristic is supporting individuals’ skill development and assists them to achieve their goals. The leaders coache and advice to each person, individually with attention and caring. Second, transformational leadership encourages employees developing intellectual ability and intellectual stimulation to raise independent problem solving. Third one is inspiration. For this, transformational leaders communicate with employees with clearly and effectively for them to understand and get highly expected goals. Lastly, transformational leaders show a clear vision and a mission to staffs. Leaders empower and motivate employee and are respected and trusted from employees, so the facility can reach the goal (as cited in Choi, Goh & Adam, 2016). Transformational leader leads the group by not forced power but inspirational motivation, and encourage positive energy to reach the goal respectively. To be a transformation leader, I would like to improve these four competencies, 1) professional role development and image, 2) decision making, problem solving and troubleshooting, 3) communication skills, 4) team building and empowerment in my work setting. Running Head: Personal Leadership Vision 3 First, for developing a professional role development and image, I will visit the Association of perioperative Registered Nurses(AORN) website, learn and adapt new skills and technology in surgical setting. Also taking healthcare continuing education classes provided by work organization, the Christus Health system will keep updating medical knowledge and follow the guideline of the organization. These efforts lead eventually for me practice confidently in clinical, and patient’s safety and quality care in health system. Second competency is decision making, problem solving and troubleshooting. While working as OR nurse, faces with various decision-making situation. From surgical setting up to patient positioning, lack of surgical instruments, broken devices, and shortage of supplies, dynamic situation happened in daily surgical environment. My top priority in decision making is patient safety first with critical thinking. When faces with this situation, first talked with OR director, my chain of command, and tried to find alternative methods after discussing with other team members followed hospital protocol. If not related to patient care, future out why it happened and verify the cause and try to correct or fix it not to happen again. The third competency is communication. Peter et al., (2015, p 7) notes in a qualitative study, “Miscommunication in our hospital was still an issue and sometimes steered by some departments such as IT or technical services. Sometimes there was limited communication between individual healthcare workers and between members of different nursing units too. We were not always aware or informed of certain decisions and changes” (Interviewee 3). “Limited feedback …such as nursing councils …I didn’t know anything about it, …what they were doing or had decided” (Interviewee 1)”. Miscommunication leads to wrong information and frustration and eventually decrease the patient safety and quality care. In my intraoperative setting, I will pay more attention to surgical staffs and clarify their needs during a surgery. Surgeon, Running Head: Personal Leadership Vision 4 Anesthesia, Scrub and Circulator, all wear mask, and noisy monitoring or surgical device sound disturb surgical team’s communication. As a circulator, keep watching procedure precisely, communicate with them quickly and accurately. Updating surgical preference note is good communication tool to know well about surgical members styles and give feedback each other for the next cases. Last competency is team building and empowerment. During a long or complicated surgical case or busy tight schedule, surgical teams burn out easily. Loanna et al., (2014) analyzed the burnout is strongly related to motivation, leadership, empowerment and confident. I will take a break from long surgical cases and keep monitoring the surgical team’s fatigue and support them. Respect each staffs’ scope of practice, and cooperate with as team work for the shared goal. According to Peter et al., (2015, p 9), the positive empowerment with clear organization goal and dedicated support increased employee’s responsibility, autonomy, critical thinking and communication skills, and it was turn improved the quality and safety of patient care. I will interact with surgical team members with positive attitude and empowerment, make them feel positive energy in stressful surgical environment. Various backgrounds, work environment and experience of individuals affect their mind and thinking. As a future nursing leader, I would develop my professional role and image and improve the skills of issue handling, and make a strong team building with communication skills and empower the team members to achieve not only individuals’ goal but also organization’s desired goals.
