Emotional Intelligence Theory In Nurse Leadership
Nursing leadership theories are formed to create excellent leaders that accommodate the objectives of the team and these theories allow the team members to understand different leadership situations. This following scholarly paper describes a case study of conflicts regarding a new graduate nurse who experiences a rude behavior from a senior colleague during the workplace. This paper explains the application of emotional intelligence theory and how a nurse can provide leadership in this situation.
Emotional intelligence is outlined as the capacity of a people to discover, evaluate, and control their own emotions and feelings, the emotions of other people and groups (Goleman & Gardner, 2014).
Daniel Goleman’s model of emotional intelligence theory focuses on a wide variety of competencies and skills that improve leadership performance. It mainly focused on five areas self- awareness, self -regulation, social skill, empathy, and motivation. Self- awareness means understanding of own’s emotions, strengths, weaknesses, and objectives to recognize their effects on other people while using gut feelings to guide other team members. Social skills include managing emotions of others to move people in the one direction. Empathy describes recognizing, understanding and considering other people’s feelings especially when making any decision. Motivation means motivating person to achieve something for the sake of success (Goleman & Gardner, 2014).
As a nurse leader, there are many ways to deal with this situation. Daniel Goleman (2006), presented the concept of emotional intelligence in which he relates the emotional intelligence to four elements, these are self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and social skills. We applied nursing leadership skills to our case study according to these four elements:
As a nurse leader, I should try to know the strengths and weaknesses of new graduate nurses as nobody learned everything from home, we learned from our mistakes and with experience. First of all, I will orient the new staff to the whole department where she is going to work, then I will give work to her that she can do in a particular time and as a nurse leader, I will assist her and observe her doing the procedures so that I can correct her mistakes. If another nurse wants to take help from me, as nurse, it is my responsibility to help every person in my area and at the end of duty, I will appreciate the new staff for her work so that she can gain confidence and will try to work more and to learn more from day to day activities in the hospital and will become an independent staff in a short period.
Self-confidence is classified as a personal trait for an effective leader. Self-confidence measure the potential to trust your instincts, qualities, and judgment to make a better decision. Being self-confident is vital that a leader can have due to the fact it will help instill self-belief among the followers and the group (Dubrin, 2015). Self- confidence can also be considered as a behavioral and interactive ability as an alternative than just a personality trait because it reflects on how both male...
